So there was a bunch of talk about putting a MOBO into a fridge to cool it off. What happened? Was this tried or did the idea fizzle and die?

-20c?

Hello MsNath.
I see you have a p3 700e also (i have slot 1) with an 86w peltier /Alpha p3125s and my lowest temp was -10*c but it stays at -9*c under idle, and under 10*c under full load.
how'd you get yours to -20*c?

I've read somewhere that the average fridge wasn't able to pump the heat produced by a overclocked PC, not to mention a AMD. Ever thought about that? Some people out here who really have done this, what are your experiences? I give a AC-unit more chance, because it has more power.

Do you have a picture available of your PC outside with a good pile of snow ontop of it? Welcome to the diehards. And I thought 10°C in my room was cold...(netherlands).

What about taking the comp building a box around it and transplanting the mobo in it. Now making sure to insulate the box you build around it, then adding all the frdige neccessary internals and running the ide cables out of the box as well. Just my thought on this supercooling talk! =)

But for me the water cooling adventure will be just fine... =)

Yes I do have pics and again if you do a search for "dirt cheap super cooling" you will find pictures there as well. :)
