What's the world's smallest air conditioning compressor?

I was wondering if anyone knew where it was possible to get an air conditioning compressor about the size of a golf ball, or maybe the size of or slightly smaller than a baseball. (not a softball, a baseball). It would need to run on a refrigerant that is obtainable by anyone, such as R134A or the like. Also, i am wondering where to get an AC condenser and drier that are very very small, sort of in proportion to the condenser i mentioned. Pretty much looking for the world's smallest components that
you could put a home made air condtioner together with. I have used google, to no avail. Im bored and i like to do stuff like this, so i was trying to see if i could fab up my own home grown cooling unit for an overclocked computer processor/GPU. (graphics card)

I know there are kits i could buy for water cooling, but where is the fun in that. Also this would be sooo much cooler, which would allow for even higher voltages which would allow for even higher overclocks. Some of yall will probly think ima crackhead, but as i said im bored these days and it seems like this could be fun.

People have already gone there... Search for phase change cooling; there are several companies making cases that house a compressor, condenser and a custom evaporator block for the cpu. The main issues with these systems beyond the added complexity is that you have a delay at start up for the evaporator to reach temp, and you have to insulated everything to prevent condensation on the motherboard, graphics card etc.

Some have built a two stage setup that uses a phases change system to cool a fluid which in turn is used as the cooling medium on the processor, gpu's ect. This way you can cool multiple things without using separate evaporators. Many of these systems can easily drop the operating temps below zero

Why not just start with a small freezer like this: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=5733501 and drill some holes through the door.

It'll have all of the components needed. You could probably put one of these inside of it filled with water and use a regular liquid cooling setup ran through the coils.

Way less complicated Personally I'll stick with water cooling for now. Mine doesn't go over 50 degrees celsius ever.

I know there are plenty of companies that do this but i wanted to see if i could piece one together for less than they charge. The fridge one is not a bad idea. When i read
that i was like "lol". Plus i when i thought of this i also wondered what the world's smallest AC compressor was. Anyone know? I dont think it could even be as small as i wanted it.
