  1. Looks like a nice freezer but I would still go for a chest freezer it is just easier to mod. You really wont need that -20 either. I can get down to -7 with mine and that is with about 25% ethylene glycol it starts to freeze at that temp. I have enough problems with condensation without going any lower. In fact I normally run at about 5-10 degrees as this has less condensation and provides all the benefits for overclocking. Going much colder has not made any additional overclock gains.

    The problem I see with the front door type is you need an additional container inside the freezer to hold the coolant. This will reduce the cooling capacity as the elements are built into the walls. The pipe work would also need to be plumbed through the front door as this is the only place that doesn't have cooling elements. Just some things to think about.

    Good luck with your build.

    Hey bro,

    I found your FREEZER thread pretty awesome. So simple and easy to do. I did have a few questions for you. I was wondering about your thoughts on "medical freezers". There are some online that I've seen in the $200 range that can get down to -20 degrees C. This one is an example of what I'm talking about: EdgeStar Medical Freezer. I know it's small and I was thinking of placing a plastic container on the inside with coolant for the pump to draw from. I have a Intel i7 990X that I'd love to get up around 5Ghz stable. I'm thinking with this setup it could be possible. Obviously I want to avoid condensation because that's just a pain in the ass. Am I going over board with that freezer or is it a good idea because I can adjust the temperature? Talk to ya soon man. Thanks again.
