Recommended Posts

YIkes actual liquid metal, makes me think of T1000 from Terminator 2. This stuff is Conductive right?? I honestly wouldn't risk this for 5 C drop.

Barium, Gallium... I think gallium

 

Not at room temperature, needs around 86F to melt. Francium would be around room temperature...close anyways.

 

It probably a combination of metals, NaK (sodium potassium) is one...except it can ignite spontaneously.

 

I'm sending the company an email (and doing some research) because I'm curious about this stuff. I think there was another thing like this awhile back though...

 

Edit:

 

Yeah, somebody tried this awhile back and got a couple degrees cooler. I'll probably throw some on my main rig this summer when I tear here down and clean her up.

 

Anybody tell those guys heatspreaders are made of aluminum? Or maybe its just a tin alloy of some sort...
