    You realize of course that the obvious answer is to water cool the PC and run your lines and reservoir through the refrigerator right?:D

    lol Red, he is not talking about using the refrigerator to cool the pc. faizrajaie, if you can tell us if the air above and the air behind the refrigerator is hot, if it is then this will be a problem.

    I think it will be fine. You may want to put something under the PC to minimize vibration when the compressor for the fridge kicks on. Something cheap you could use is a couple mousepads.

    Had a college buddy do just that with a mini-fridge :haha: .

    And ya you should be fine if you don't feel any temperature difference, just try to minimize the vibration as SNGX suggests.
