I was looking for information regarding the thermal qualities of whatever liquid is in that heat pump/HSF. Does anyone know if the liquid in that HSF will freeze?

I've never seen the substance used officially stated, although there are quite a few possibilities these days.

It's not so much that the liquid will freeze (although it might), but most heatpipe designs only work within a certain temperature range, up to a certain amount of wattage dissipation. In order to properly design them for processor cooling, freezing temperatures are almost always out of spec for optimum operation.

As far as I've read its not a liquid anyways its a gas.

And when the gas is heated and brought to the top and cooled by the fans its then converted into a liquid.
