    Funny what ideas come out of silly questions and theories....
    I was discussing this post with my signifigant other, and she mentioned dry ice....seems like a perfect solution to me. No condensation, and if ya dropped it into a cup of water, you could get a cool smoke effect....maybe some lasers and a disco ball?:laugh:

    Actually dry ice is only a step below liquid nitrogen. ;)

    Hmmmm....have I stumbled upon one of Wiggo's Top Secret evil experiments?
    Granted, this is all theoretical and a little silly at best, but dry ice is commonplace, and could be easily implemented for a one-time benchmark of just how OCed a certain configuration could go, but in practical usage....Where'd ya get the liquid nitrogen Wiggo?!?! :laugh: :cheers:

    Hmmm.... sounds like a LOT of work to me. Putting the new can in as the old one warms up, over and over and over again. Also, condensation will occur with any object that is below the dew point. You prolly wont see it, but you will up the humidity of the case for sure. Not a good idea, IMHO. My $0.02

    I say just put the whole PC in a small fridge...it HAS been done before, by several of my friends, and usually works great. I've heard of one instance, though, that the computer wasn't at all stable in the fridge (static electricity buildup, maybe, from the cooling unit?)
