    I don't understand why you would seal the MB in *anything*. Wouldn't that just insulate the component?

    And, as far as condensation and computer being off and such, so what if it does develop condensation? The amounts will be trivial and, nearly non-existant if the computer remains on most of the time.

    What's the concern? Puddling? If you're worried about puddling, just mount the MB at an angle in the freezer. Any sweat that does form during off periods will be vaporized moments after restarting the computer as long as we're not talking about months and months of downtime.

    And, even if it does hasten the deteriation of computer parts, what's the big deal? These things are obsolete the instant you buy them, anyway. No matter what speed machine you get today, the only reason you didn't get a faster one is because you couldn't justify the expense of the next faster one. Otherwise, we'd all have cyro-cased supercomputers.

    That said, there's a fairly good chance that you'll be upgrading the majority of the hardware within the next 24 months, even if just to keep up with the jones'.

    However, how are you going to keep the freezer sealed? I expect that you're about to have to drill the freezer and run the required cables through those holes. In order to seal them, you may end up making your monitor, mouse, and keyboard permanant fixtures into your new computer case.

    So, my risk assessment so far is:
    Condensation won't cause puddles if the MB is mounted in such a way that any water always has a way to roll off the edge.
    Condensation won't happen that much anyway, in a closed freezer.
    Even if it does, so what?
    Be happy with your monitor, keyboard, and mouse before permanently affixing them to the freezer.

    Hey... guys if you dont want humidity which causes condensation, just put a humidity absorbing product in it such as damprid.

    There is a case that is like an AC; Sytrin nextherm. It uses TEC to send cold air into the case interior. Is that cold enough?
