This is probably a horrible idea; putting a Mac Mini in a mini-fridge

Just moved to a new house and had to place my Mac Mini server in the attic. Now this is really nice and cool at this time of the year, but during summer it's going to get blistering hot up there, meaning I have to find a solution that won't kill my Mac Mini and the two WD external drives I have connected to it.


Is there any good reason why I couldn't just buy a mini-fridge and put them inside that? The only thing I can think of is condensation building up, but I have no idea if that will be an issue or not.


Something like this.


And yes, I'm pretty sure this is a terrible idea, but I figured it was worth mentioning here and getting some feedback.
