Danamics LM10

The worlds first commercially available liquid metal based CPU cooler...

Danamics has developed an efficient, reliable and scalable technology base for cooling of high heat flux semiconductors.
The technology is described in parts containing information about the unique electromagnetic pump with its patent pending multi-string design and the liquid metal with its superior thermo physical characteristics.

Electromagnetic pumps have been used for decades and have been seen in a variety of applications. From space crafts and satellites, on nuclear-driven surface warships and submarines and also in land based nuclear reactors and industrial applications. In space, at sea, at land and now also as a key element for hot spot cooling. An electromagnetic pump has several advantages over typical mechanical pump designs. It contains no moving parts, shafts, seals, etc., emits no noise or vibration, has unlimited MTBF and suffers no performance degrading over time. Typically electromagnetic pumps have had the drawback of a high current requirement. The Danamics patent pending multi-string electromagnetic pump eliminates this limitation and delivers a high flow with minimal current input. Due to the small size and power requirements, the multi-string pump makes a liquid metal cooler suitable for use in smaller applications such as home computers, workstations and even laptops.

The liquid metal is a key component in Danamics cooling systems. Liquid metal has two major advantages when cooling high power density heat sources:
Firstly it has superior thermo physical properties that decrease temperature - and temperature non–uniformity - on die and across chips.
Secondly the electrical properties of the liquid metal enables efficient, reliable and ultra compact electromagnetic pumping without the use of moving parts, shafts, seals, etc.

Liquid Metal has numerous key advantages compared to competing technologies, such as water-cooling or traditional air cooling. The most important ones are:

Ultimate performance
Danamics LM10 is the world’s best performing air-cooler. By utilizing the unique properties of liquid metal, the cooler has the lowest thermal resistance of any air-cooler in the market. The cooling capabilities exceeds most watercoolers in a single device.

Easy mounting
Compared to competing solutions, the Danamics LM10 is a true all-in-one product. There are no external housings, large reservoirs or bulky radiators. With liquid metal cooling you have true performance in a compact, self-contained unit. This makes mounting a breeze and the Danamics LM10 cooler can be mounted in minutes.

No moving parts
The superior liquid metal brings another advantage besides its efficiency. The properties of liquid metal make the use of an electromagnetic pump possible. Danamics’ patent pending multi-string pump delivers high flow combined with a very low power-draw of less than 1W.

No noise and no vibration
Compared to watercooling pumps, the electromagnetic pump used in Danamics LM10 cooler has numerous benefits. It is hermetically sealed and has no moving parts, which means that no noise or vibration is added to the system from the electromagnetic pump. Also the pump is orientation independent, which ensures maximum flexibility for users and system integrators.

Innovative technology
Danamics LM10 is built from the ground up using innovative technology. The combination of liquid metal and an electromagnetic pump is all new in commercial cooling devices, bringing true high-tech to your desktop

Arrow

IF this works like they say it does then there's going to be some new clock speeds coming!
Price, Size & Cooling Efficeincy will be the make or break for this.
I really hope that everything they said here is absolutely true!
If so, then this is way cool! Looks cool too!

So are they using Mercury or Gallium?

If Gallium, this will be expensive, but not the first time its been reported

Liquid metal next big thing in PC cooling - The INQUIRER

Liquid metal is so cool it may be on ice - The INQUIRER

The pics from this story are originally from the nano coolers site.
techPowerUp! News :: NanoCoolers puts liquid metal in your PC


This company, used to have the page of the original cooler
Thin Film Thermoelectric - Thermal Management: NanoCoolers.com


I also looked into the cost of gallium at this time. 3 years ago it was £525.00 + shipping + tax per kg (Brittish pounds) from:
Gallium_Indium
1kg gallium in liq form is about 125ml, so this wont be cheap or light, if its not vaporware this time.

They know that anything above 100$ will not sell........So i trust they will find a way to keep the cost low.

That will depend on how well it reduces temps. If it works better than water cooling then $100 is no limit at all.
