I think the "liquid metal" would be the "hot" side of the pelt...just have a little "element" that charges the liquid metal with a bit of juice, it wicks away the heat, and flows away. Pretty smart-like.

HERE'S more pics(photos courtesy Xbit labs) Notice the motherboard....the next 939 overclocker's dream...includes passive mosfet heatsink that can be removed and replaced with a DangerDen waterblock.Sapphire has the blocks already hacked out, with red tops to match the ATI board's colour scheme. :

wait until you see the results, DSIO, then judge. Sapphire makes ALL of ATI x800-based video baords, and they seem pretty good as of late.

MOre details will follow

could the liquid metal in there also be galluim?
thats the only other metal i know of thats liquid at room temperature. i think it melts at 25 or 30C or something like that.

on a sidenote: it would be pretty cool to have a metal melt in your hand, hehehe.

NanoCoolers insist that the fluid it uses is non-toxic, non-flammable and environmentally safe. The company says boiling point of the substance is over 2000°C in a low presure environment
it is most likely gallium. gallium boils at ~2400C and since its in a low presure setting. the solidifying point is likely nicely below the 25C mark at room temperature

i dont know of any oils that will boil at above 2000C

Gallium has a melting point right at 30C and a boiling point of 2204C. It maintains a low vapor pressure up to a very high temp, which is good. Unfortunately, it also expands when it solidifies, and by quite a bit from what I understand. Given that, and it's relatively warm melting point, I'm not at all sure that it would be a good coolant in this application. BTW, although the boiling point varies with pressure, the solidifying point does not. This is why boiling points are always specified at a particular pressure.

I would say its an alloy of Gallium. Possibly Gallium Oxide. This could possibly be an answer to lower the freezing point. But then stability issues occur. Depending on how its made, depends on how stable it is. Because Gallium Oxide is NOT natural. It has only been known to be produced in a labratory. (sp?)
