Silicon does not become a conductor at low temperatures.  It becomes
less conductive, having less themally generated carriers.  The
leakage current becomes less and the wires (a major source of heat)
become more conductive at lower temperature.  However, I do not
know if the field effect transistors will behave normally at low
