I'll heat the case, but no offence Corsair. Would freezing the head of the bolt not make the metal more brittle and easier to snap? Just speaking from experience working at a steel pipe mill, when you heat the metal to a certain degree, cool it, heat it again, etc (to get specific properties) you 'quench and temper' the metal making it stronger.
In this situation I would only be heating the case and the bolt inside it, but freezing the bolt head. The can of aerosol would not be able to penetrate the bolt the full way down.
And please don't take this as a snappy smart ass comment haha. This is just a worry of mine since the case isn't cheap and I don't want to have to tap a bolt out. But if it so happens...
