Wow this is such an interesting method of using cooling lol maybe its the future theres gonna be some kind of synthetic liquid that will one day be used which will have a higher heat load capacity compared to water.

I'd probably steer clear of liquid metals, Is it even safe to handle this gallium alloy. For a pump I wonder if some sort of electromagnet wrapped around part of the loop might get things moving.

Pretty interesting though...beats writing about predator pheromones and inducible plasticity at the moment

I'm sure its only a matter of time before someone over at XS does this. Those guys always do the craziest crap with their PCs ever, and that's why XS is awesome for when your feeling Xtreme.

I do believe they use liquid metal for military cooling .. and they use an electromagnetic pump. Lorentz force and all that.

There is a new company selling this.

BIOS: IT Reviewed

I'm going to email them about specs.we'll see if they've done thier homework.
