Is it true that putting your computer in the freezer helps it run faster?

That sounds like someone fed you a BS story ! It would ruin it ! How would you run the wires out of the freezer without shutting the door ! Don't even think about it ! The frost would short it out !

At my first job, the central computer system was inside a giant glass room that was refrigerated. That was a long time ago. The circuitry in computers gets hot and a small fan is enough to cool most personal computers. There are some high tech cooling systems you can buy and make, most of them have a heat exchanger recirculating fluid lines filled with glycol from inside the computer to a tank inside a small freezer. I've built one before. I don't know much about computers, but I know you don't want your circuits to overheat! I think the idea is you don't want to subject the circuits to any extreme temperature changes, so it's best to just keep it at steady cool temp.

Well, circuitry does function better when it is colder. But yeah, the wires wouldn't be able to go out. Too much hassle.
