    Exactly as promised, Danamics today announced the limited availability of what's claimed to be the first cooler to use liquid metal based technology to cool processors. The Danamics LM10 has generated much excitement since its first appearance, but the limited availability and the enormous price are going to kill the interest in such a product, at least that's what I think. European sites are now offering the LM10 here and here for the astonishing 280 Euro. Danamics also sells what they call a PowerBooster, an optional device that enhances the LM10's performance by providing its electromagnetic pump with more power, for around 128 Euro. Let's assume you want to buy the LM10, you'd need roughly 400 Euro or ~$510 for one of those. In return you'll receive a high-quality air cooler filled up with liquid metal and equipped with an electromagnetic pump that has no moving parts. The cooler is compatible with all Intel LGA 775, AMD AM2/AM2+ and AMD 939/754 sockets. I'm looking forward for a review of the Danamics LM10, it has to be one of a kind cooler to cost so much.

    The noise of aircooling with the power of watercooling for the price of phase-change?

    Somehow I think this'll be little more than a bling-bling item.

    Sounds really cool yet, but cost is way high, would be great for a Lanbox overclocker :)

    For me, mercury is a liquid metal and this stuff is highly toxic.

    So what the heck is in this cooler btw?

    No one really can confirm, Some have said a indium/gallium mixture that is liquid at room temperature and cheaper than mercury.

    Would it even fit most of the cases it's 1,15cm taller than TRUE. Will be interesting to read the review, but this product went from hero to zero last week when I found about the price. (I was so looking forward to getting one, but even with half the price it should perform miracles).

    edit: it's really powered like this? looks rather weird home made solution.

    edit2:
    Pump power draw: With Return Power: <1 Watt
    24-pin return power wire
    8-pin return power wire

    So it draws X amount of power and returns Y amount back to the system, so that it only draws under 1W. I'd rather have just an molex adapter and take the X amount, that cable won't look pretty next to the terminator cooler.

    For that kind of money I'd go with "Phasechange cooling".

    These guys will drop the price if they dont want to go out of business... for $500 I can buy a custom LIANLI case with a watercooling system already installed. In fact, for $500 i can build a whole system for gaming... the opportunity cost is just too high... "HMMM I can drop my temps by 10C and overclock 300MHz higher... or i can buy a 4870X2... HMMMMMMM"

    Without a fan I can't imagine it being loud, unless that magnet has an air raid siren in it or something.

    Should we expect this thing to cool 15~25c better than the Ultra120 on load ?

    Okay. I cannot find a UK supplier that has these in stock.

    Although I will wait for review before buying.

    Also it would be common sense that it would still need a fan to move air away from the heatsink/fins or very good case airflow.

    Though it should only require a very quite/slow fan, like the Noctua 120 mm 800 rpm (8 decibels).
