Default PC in a mini fridge

Lately I have been thinking about putting my whole pc in one of those mini fridges you find at fry's and I wanted to know if it's worth it and if it works, how about humidity and all that stuff and will it need to be on 24/7? I know a way I can insulate the cables that come out so that isn't a problem
Peace!

of course, just make it a little bigger or alter it depending on how much beer/cokes/depending on age you want to store...

I was thinking about this also, but wouldn't this defeat the pupose of a SFF? The computer may be cooler inside, but the fridge would probably throw off a lot of heat since you have a computer in there.
