    Default Mini Fridge case.... need help.

    My first real case mod.

    I have this new mini fridge sitting around

    Parts I have:

    AMD X4 955 BE
    Asus M5A88-M
    ATI HD4850
    8 GB 1600mhz corair vengeance
    Corsiar H80 cooler

    Question: Do I pull the plastic inside of fridge out?

    How to mount mobo? What kind of frame?

    I want to leave the fridge parts in working order, compressor etc.

    Where to start?

    A fridge compressor is not good enough to cool a system let alone the cpu. You need a compress then can handle cooling at least 125 wats of heat or so.

    A A/c compressor from a window unit would be better.

    Ok, Forget the compressor.

    What I want is to mount 2 systems inside the fridge, one on either side.

    I don't know anything about electricity and grounding etc... or potential current conflicts in a case with 2 PSUs.

    I'm thinking of cannibalising 2 PC cases for mobo mounting plates and such things as Power switches.

    Hmmmm.. seems doable

    Ur using the fridge just as a case ?? or u will actually cool it as well with a compressor ???
    Cooling wud become almost impossible cuz u need to drill holes to mount a zillion things in there...

    Y on sides though ??? cant u just put the motherboard tray with everything on a top shelf with PSU occupying the lower compartment ??
