wonder what type of metal it is or if its metal particles suspended in a fluid. A quick google search revealed no liquid metal that is as conductive as copper at room temperature.

I think the point of the liquid metal is to promote more even cooling potential across the entire heatsink. It acts as a thermal transfer from the base to the top of the cooler, instead of having the heatsink itself transfer heat.

Yeah, generation one was pretty lackluster. Liquid metals don't work as well as copper, but pretty much any of them have higher conductivity ratings than water. But they won't have the specific heat capacity of water, so it'll be more important to maintain high flow rate (the reason for the new pump?). It will also be much harder to get any turbulence, so it's hard to say how it would do. For the price, they'll be competing against good compact water-cooling kits as well as some of Coolit's offerings.
