Danamics LM-10 liquid metal CPU cooler to cost 280EUR?

Posted on Thursday, November 06 2008 @ 00:12:13 CET by

French computer site Case and Cooling reports the Danamics LM-10 processor cooler, which is the first to use liquid metal cooling, will cost a whopping 280EUR in France.

That's a pretty excessive price for a processor cooler but the firm claims this cooler performs better than most watercooling kits. Some more info on how the liquid metal CPU cooler from Danamics works can be found here, it's a machine translation but it's not that hard to understand. The site explains the liquid metal used by the cooler is an alloy of gallium, indium and tin. Gallium is a rare metal with a melting point of only 29.76°C and the mixture of indium, tin and some other additives brings down the melting point to -10°C. Gallium has 67x the thermal conductivity of water, but it's heat capacity is 11.3 times lower.

To see if this cooler really performs that well, we'll have to wait for the first reviews.
