The only thing you have to worry about is humidity. If its hella humid eventually you'll get some slight corrosion on the solder joints and maybe even the case if its unpainted but honestly it will be fine.

I would say stop moping and use your time to learn some basic physics. Condensation isn't issue since its not running. Condensation happens when you have hot and cold surfaces in contact, hot surface on cold air or cold surface in hot air. So when you get it back inside, let it warm up good before powering it.

 

Next up is warping. What the hell? Thats what might happen on extreme heat, not cold. You have the thing completely upside down. Coolness shrinks stuff, hotness expands them. The way basic thermometers work. Some plastic parts might crack if temps drop under -25C. But again, let it warm up and everything is fine.

 

One thing you could do, if you allowed to approach it. Drain PSU. Meaning you go and push power button once. That clears any remaining charge. Also if you could pack it inside cardboard box (gathers moist), that keeps it safer.

So when I take it inside from the extreme cold it will be very wet! Thanks for telling me something I already knew.

If you knew that, then you have misunderstood something. From maybe -10C (if its that cold in place where it is) to room temp of 20-25C is not hot enough to create massive condensation. It won't be instant. Its not like going from -15C air to 100C sauna where humidity is nearing 80%.

Seriously, you've seen linus and friends pour liquid nitrogen on only ONE part of the board and you're worried about a little bit of freezing temps? 

 

No.... no... your computer will be fine. Since it's likely winter where you live, you likely have the heat on in the house, which means it's probably dryish in the house, meaning you won't get much (if any) condensation, even if you turn it on directly from the outside.

I don’t watch extreme cooling videos and besides that stuff is very well controlled and they can’t get it on other parts.
