I would also be afraid of condensation around the CPU and GPU.
I'm pretty sure the coolant would be below freezing as dry ice is around -78C. I am mostly worried about the coolant either ruining my water blocks or becoming too thick and damaging the pump.

Of course, you'd have to cover the rad with some kind of plastic or material so it doesn't condense or simply freeze. Way cheaper and easier to do.
From what I've read at XS, trying to use a fridge or freezer will cool very poorly and damage the fridge as they are not meant to have such a high heatload. They are meant to keep things producing almost no heat cool. A computer would pump out 200-300W of heat that the fridge wouldn't be able to cool quickly enough and it would cool no better than putting you rad into an airtight box.
