Two possiblitys spring to mind.

1-Use the fridge to cool water/antifreeze and use that to cool a peltier on your CPU.

2-Cut off the evaporating coils and replace with a evaporatir that will fit on your core and make your own homemade vapochill.

I like the idea of the second one best..but it will be harder to make.

That should work pretty good. And not too difficult as long as your carefull when dismantling.

You will have to find the thermostat bit and try to make it so that the pump runs enough to keep the water cold...but if you run the pump too much it will burn out

Just be sure not to damage those coils! They have compressed freon in them, and it would be a VERY bad thing to have it blow all over the place.
