Yep that was my largest worry now.. .the componants operating out of their cold start up range. LCD's for sure will be a problem, at -50 or so the liquid actually freezes... i've read from a few people posting on the net that it will eventually warm up and all you will see is the backlighting for awhile, or they will have very odd colors until they warm up. I'd imagine this sort of abuse makes for a short lived LCD..... NOW with OLED laptop coming out, thats a different matter. OLED screens actually have the ability to operate at -50*F from what i looked up, and there are supposed to be others that can go colder than that.
As for testing then out, i'd be hooking them up outside probably so as to really abuse them, figure out some sort of breaker so I dont take half the houses power out lol. If mounting the Motherboard upside down you'd still have the space between the top of the case and the bottom of the motherboard. That would probably make condensation for you... coldest because its the outer surface, and then the back side of the mobo with all of the heat, the coldest and hottest in close quarters :|
