Default DO I need to crash cool?

I am a newb and from what I read when I keg my first batch I just set the co2 to 12 and let it set for a week. Do I refregerate it while I am force carbing it or do I cool it first then force carb it or do I force carb it then refregerate it. please help.

Refrigerate it while force carbing in this case.

The beer won't absorb much CO2 at 12 psi when warm, so it does need to be refrigerated while force carbing. But there's no reason why you couldn't put a keg full of room temp beer in your fridge and put it under pressure right away -- there's no need to wait until it's already cooled before starting to force carb it.
