Assuming the physical dimensions work, would condensation (or anything
else) be a problem if someone, say a crazy grad student in his non-AC
basement, were to put a few desktop nodes in a used, cleaned
refrigerator?  For power into the fridge, a hole could be drilled into
the hull and then filled in with closed cell foam once the cords are
poked through.

Perhaps even two nodes in one of those small college student beer
cooler fridges - a 12 pack is roughly the size of a mini-tower...
