it can crack? have you seen this/read about it? i'd be interested in a link.

This is true. If the processor is exposed to rapid changes in temperature, it can kill the processor.

would this happen with me turning off my PC which goes in high temps and turning it off?

ok, rapid changes in temperature will kill a lot of things since the processor isnt a homogeneous object so the different chemicals will react differently to heat, but im very skeptical of a processor cracking or "stressing out" at constant low temps, mainly because it doesnt make sense physically. everyone should know that "cold" doesnt work they way its shown in movies, like when something is frozen in liquid N2 it can be instantly crushed with nothing but a fist.
