Liquid metal-cooled CPU outperforms air- and water-cooled systems?
UK-based Bios Magazine is reporting that the world's first commercially available liquid-metal based CPU cooler is about to ship -- and that Danish company Danamics says that its LM-10 outperforms standard air-cooled heatsinks and most watercooled systems with a power draw of just 1W:The liquid metal is a key component in Danamics cooling systems.
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.
