There would still be moisture within the bag, which would also condense, now if it were vacuum sealed on the case with all air gone, possibility of safe operation.

then no airflow.

Dude if you want to talk about computers and refridgerators.

in one of my computer tech magazines there was this guy who was tired of people bragging about how far they oc'ed their PC. So he found a fridge at a garage sale and took the cooling components off of it and stuck them to the wall outside of his house next to his computer. then he rigged up a water block for his cpu that used 3/4 inch hose.

and you guessed it he hooked it up to the fridge cooling unit otside of his house with some high flow pump.

It was a while ago so I dont remember this well but I think he got some P4 stocker at 2.6 ghz to like 3.7 or somethin crazy.

It looked awsome.

You could always build/buy a phase change unit. Or start using dry ice or liquid nitrogen to cool you computer.
