Dry ice has a rate of decay you should be worried about...

Unhappy Re: Dry ice

You may very well screw up your system with this type of experiment. If you bring down and maintain your cpu and area below dew point and there is a humidity build up as ice, when it will melt you may end up with water on your mobo which may not be too good!

Dry Ice has a rate of decay.... you will have to keep replacing it.. and yes the humidity developing is a factor. It may damage components. Dry ice doesn't really melt.. it turns into a gas.
