Heh. That should work.

Or, I remember reading a magazine article in the 70's about some US drag racers @ Santa Pod using a fire extinguisher to get a six pack to what they considered a drinkable temperature.

Which gives me an idea....

A CO2 extinguisher wouldn't leave a mess, would get all through the core finning (as opposed to just sitting on top), and you could do it gradually, allowing temps to lower slowly, so there wasn't too much thermal shock to the I/C (don't even know if this is too much of a concern, but you'd hate it if you cracked something, I'm sure).
