    Its nice Wiggo but way too expensive... I dont have a whole lot of money to spend on it... Besides... Mine is going to cool not only the cpu but the video card, memory, ect also.... This way I can overclock everything, not just the cpu...

    So where can I find a sub-zero refridgerator? I ran a search and only came up with parts for them... Also, do they make mini ones because that is integral.. I cant be using mass electricity for my PC.. LOL

    SubZero is just a brand and they dont make minis. They start in the 1500$US range for the cheapies.

    btw... i would try this out on a POS sytem with old components first. Just a thought.

    Another way to get rid of some of the humidity is to buy "dessicant". This is commonly used in chemistry labs to keep chemicals from sucking humidy out of the air. Another option is silica gel. Every once and a while you would have to put it in your oven and bake it to redry it, but it would cut condensation by a lot.

    Also note, that if don't open the fridge too much then you will not be introducing new condensation into the unit, so once the dessicant pulls the moisture out, you will be fine.

    Second note, you should tip it on its side since my little beer fridge drips water from the cooling unit that is usually in the top corner.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys!!! I'm looking into the dessicant and silica gel products right now...

    Most of these mini refrigerators come with that dumb little freezer built in.. They are hard to find without it. How hard do you thinkn it would be to just take the freezer portion out?

    you can't take the "freezer" part out, that actually provides the coolding for the entire unit. You best best is to keep that part away from you electronics.
