for the most part people seem to advise just getting a vapochill or something similiar as it will give you better results. some of them sound like they have no idea what they are talkin about, others seem to have sufficient proof of what they are saying. just depends on who you believe i guess.

yea, i wouldnt take anything a baboon says to heart.

the only resonable information posted, was someone sayed that the heat output of the pc would overload the fridge. but thats not specific enough, he didnt say what the BTU limit on the fridge had to be, or if he tested it and experienced a failur? none of witch i doubt he did.

a freezer has more then enough cooling power then a cpu requires, and i would guess that a mini-fridge would also work to less extent. either way, that guys assumption can easily be tested either by = intalling a thermomiter to read the internal fridge temps when u put your pc in it, or = stick your little brother in the mini-fridge at the store b4 u buy it, and see if it overloads.

lol. i got a big sister thats it.

i don't see why he drilled a hole for the fan anyhow, he totally ruined the fridge and probably alot of drill bits or w/e he used. my closet is about as cold an environment as i would put my PC in, its always shut and gets cold. about 50-55F (10-13C) in the day.
