Depending on the environmental conditions in your computer room, you may have problems with condensation.

That's what it thought was going to be the main problem. I was considering sealing it
And I also heard of some kind of water proofer for electronics that might help but I am not sure of name of the stuff. I know that the military uses it on all of their equipment

Get an abandoned or "for cheap" Frost Free refrigerator. Put the mobo in the freezer and the rest in the fridge part. People get rid of perfectly good appliances all the time.

Might be better to figure a way to use the fridge to cool a water cooling system instead. Your going to need a big case to fit the compressor and coils.
