ThermalTake creates new cooling alloy

Ramsom Koay from ThermalTake told TG Daily that the firm has developed a new metal alloy with improved cooling capabilities:
hermaltake's Ramsom Koay claims that the company went out on a limb and created not just another compressor cooler (the same type of cooling that modern refrigerators use), but a completely new type of metal material for the device. Subjectively, the new metal is actually much more flexible than any cooling material we have encountered. We expect the technology to support CPU and GPU (ATI and Nvidia) cooling.

The new design promises to cool parts down to 18 – 28 degrees Celsius. Thermaltake wants to ship the OEM/ODM/SI design as soon as possible, while enthusiasts, gamer, and overclockers will have to wait until Thermaltake has sufficient supply of the new material.

The compressor will come in two versions: One is OEM/ODM/SI-friendly and shows limited modifications, while the second version (which is not yet ready to ship) will feature flexible cabling for the CPU and the GPU.
Products with this alloy should be available before the end of this year.
