My System Specs


Yup - don't get a pre-mix. Get concentrated and use with distilled. You may find this thread inspiring to some degree: Cold weather benching with water

Generally not a good idea since most fridges aren't designed to handle such a strong heat load. An overclocked i7 can dump as much as 300w of heat. You'd most likely end up turning the freezer into a mini-sauna and then it would actually heat your water instead of cooling it.

edit - Oh, and by the way - that little MCP-655 you see is currently in its third year of cold-weather benching. It can handle it.
Think you can overclock? Then show us what you got!
