The Thermodymanics of Hell-John Ellis has this cutie
1) If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose. 2) If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over...
A few possibilities Ellis isn't counting on. He assumes that Hell is a place with standard thermodynamics. Just like you can't point your starship and fly to Heaven, you can't fly to Hell either, although a few locales might look like it. It might not be a closed system, either; heat might be vented off by other means or implode into a black hole. However, the key point of Hell isn't the temperature but the isolation from God. That's the key thing to remember; it's not about pitchforks and flames, it's being on your own for eternity seperated from God.
