    Denmark's Danamics LM10 CPU cooler, the world's first commercially available liquid metal-based processor cooler, was reported today to have received a release date. The LM10 will land in Europe as of November 17th, but it will come in limited quantities. Outside of Europe, Danamics is still awaiting approval of its liquid metal-based technology, and after one is obtained the company can start selling.
    Recently, Danamics engineers claimed to have developed a CPU cooler that will put to shame every air cooling solution available and most of the current water cooling kits. The LM10 has no moving parts and an unlimited mean time between failures. Inside is a yet-to-be-named liquid metal that's said to provide superior thermo physical properties and is circulated without moving parts thanks to a built-in electromagnetic pump. Expect more information next week.

    OVER 9000!!!!

    Really though, I hope this works out. Would be really cool to see a new type of cooler on the market.

    Wonder if it could prove to be a health hazard?

    I think that's exactly why it isn't approved in the US yet. I can't wait to see this thing in action.

    Liquid metals are generally very bad for people.

    The US doesn't care about health hazards lol. They care about what company will line their pockets. We have so many drugs and foods allowed here that are banned in Europe b/c they're downright dangerous or deadly. (and the US bans healthy food b/c the pharmas wouldn't be able to sell their pills)

    If it's allowed in Europe, I'll take one, thank you very much :)

    If it does actually have forced circulation, I can see this cooling very well.

    Let's not turn this political.

    I have no idea, I'm not a scientist, it's just something I remember from years ago in science class. Google it.

    I think people are confusing liquid metal like mercury for liquid metal technology. Totally different!!!

    we can atleast conclude something about the liquid metal: theres some sort of hazard, its magnetic, and can stay in liquid form under standard temperature.
