Danamics LMX liquid metal cooler gets tested

Posted on Wednesday, December 30 2009 @ 23:00:14 CET by

British tech site Clunk.org.uk is one of the first to publish a review of the new Danamics LMX liquid metal cooler, you can read the review over here. This is the second attempt from Danamics at a processor cooler that uses liquid metal cooling technology but it still looks like a bust due to its high price. At stock speeds the cooler keeps the Core i7 860 at a much lower temperature than other air coolers, but once you go overclocking the advantage becomes a lot smaller. With a price tag of around 170EUR it makes more sense to invest a bit more into a watercooling set than in the Danamics LMX.
The Danamics LMX liquid metal cooler is one of those products that doesn't currently have a niche, that isn't to say that there will never be one, just that at the moment there is still a well defined line between high end air cooling and decent water cooling. In theory, the LMX should have fallen somewhere between the two camps, making itself a spot and satisfying demand. The problem that we have is that although the LMX does beat the rest of the high-end air-cooled pack, it doesn't do it by a significant enough margin for it to be a viable proposition for most people. Cost is a significant factor and at €170 Euros, it's over twice the price of its nearest rival. Water cooling is just a few $$/££/€€ away from the price of the LMX.
