so i was checkin out another thread in here, and i saw someone puttin an xbox in a mini fridge,
this is the best idea ever, but he didnt keep the fridge working,
i want to keep a working fridge, but just put the xbox in like the bottom part of the fridge,
whats the best way of keepin the mobo sealed, so i dont get any condensation in there,
like a plexi box, or something, it doesnt have to be super fancy, just keep my beer cold, and have an xbox in there,

also i was thinkin, is interference from the fridge condensor and what not gonna be an issue?

What kind of interference would a condenser make? It would not make electrical.
And it will be very hard for you to keep water out of the case, use lots of silicon. also how would u run the controllers, power, and av into the refridgerator?

I dont really see a benifit to this since the Xbox can't be overclocked. The Xbox will not run any better and you will not only have to deal with condensation on the motherboard but the hard drive also and mabye even the power supply but I assumed you would make the power supply external of the fridge. To each his own and I am sure you have your reasons. If you want to konw if you will have problems with interferance from the compressor motor then do a test run first. Stick the whole Xbox in the bottom of the fridge and leave the door open so the compressor will come on and see if there is any interferance. Another thing that might affect this is if you are using the RF shielding, but I think that is mostly for tv interferance caused by the Xbox itself.

the benefit would be it is humerous to have an xbox in a working frigde, and i get bored easily


hmmmm, so would it be cold enough in there, an enclosed plexiglass container siliconed without circulating air would be enough cooling? or would i have to drill a circular hole out the back and silicone it for a fan

Silica jell The stuffin the white perferrated bag you get in boxes with electronics that says "do not eat" will absorb moisture. Other than that have the xbox compleately sealed and ported to outside is the only way I can think off to stop condensation, (and have that foam space invader stuff they fill in the lining of fridge's) around the sealed xbox enclosure. Youll also need to make sure the port doesnt suck in heat from the back of the fridge.

Aslong as the doors closed you will not get condensation. Fridges tend to be very dry, its only when the door is opened and the cold and hot air meet condensation is formed.
just thought i'd throw that in...

I love it. Keep your fridge stocked with lots of little bags that say "do not eat". biggrin.gif
