The first liquid metal-based processor cooler will be available next month. Hexus reports Danish cooling maker Danamics will introduce the LM10 liquid-metal CPU cooler on November 17, it will be available at some European resellers in limited quantities. The rest of the world will have to wait a bit longer as the firm is awaiting approval of its liquid metal-based technology before it can sell its products in other regions.
This is the first liquid-metal based cooler so we're not sure what to expect, but according to Danamics this cooler will put most watercooling setups to shame:
If you're wondering what all the fuss is about, the LM10 has no moving parts and an unlimited mean time between failures. Inside is a yet-to-be-named liquid metal that's said to provide superior thermo physical properties and is circulated without moving parts thanks to a built-in electromagnetic pump.
The promise is lower thermal resistance than any air-cooler and cooling performance that'll put most water-cooled setups to shame. That's still the claim, but we've yet to see any real-world performance figures and although we have a launch date, we're still missing the key ingredient; pricing.
