Default World's First Liquid Metal-Based CPU Cooler

Looks like Water Cooling will be a thing of the past...

BIOS: IT Reviewed

The technology inside this little cooler is actually pretty crazy.


The liquid metal is a key component in Danamics cooling systems. Liquid metal has two major advantages when cooling high power density heat sources: Firstly it has superior thermo physical properties that decrease temperature - and temperature non-uniformity - on die and across chips. Secondly, the electrical properties of the liquid metal enables efficient, reliable and ultra compact electromagnetic pumping without the use of moving parts, shafts, seals, etc.


I want one!

Wow -
For technology that impressive and that new to the market, I am surprised that the best attention it gets is a couple paragraphs from a British Magazine.

Would be nice if a review site could get their hands on it and put it through the paces.
Must still be in the pre production phase.

I would think that everyone who has a custom computer would LOVE to have one.

The problem is, where and when can we get one? And how much will it cost?

... and how well does it work? It is endorsed by the T1000?

Visually it is pretty impressive, considering what's flowing inside of it. But how well does it perform? That's what's important.

I believe a few companies have tried the idea of liquid metal cooling systems, and they either made a few prototypes that were inefficient or too dangerous to use, or they gave up in the planning stages. Hopefully this company has discovered something that makes it safe, efficient and above all, inexpensive.

Interesting concept but I wanna see some results before my hopes get crapped on.

Seems like money well wasted. I'm pretty sure that a tower heatsink can perform just as well as this. The towers are already performing top-notch, so I can't see this being better than what they already do.

Unless the heat can travel faster to the upper fins, then maybe this will work, but still, I don't think it's worth it.

See the post on 'liquid metal cooling' under the watercooling section.\\
