Well I usually Artic Silver 5, but I just saw these over at FrozenCPU:

The Coollaboratory Liquid MetalPad Thermal Interface Pad is the first heat conduction pad composed of 100% metal and melts with heat from the processor (Burn In-process), and then it performs superior heat transfer. It dissipates the heat fast and efficiently, outperforming the best heat conduction pastes. The simple, clean and fast installation turns the Liquid MetalPad into the ultimate heat conduction medium for High End PCs.

What do you guys think?:D

my only concern would be whether or not it is too thick. if you have too much thermal paste, it can actually act as a a heat collector and make your CPU even hotter.

I'd love to see a couple of reviews on it.

From the German Review Site Gamezoom.net

Compared with current thermal compounds of Zalman, Artic Silver and CO. the MetalPads is not only better from the handling substantially, but also puncto heat dissipation play trumps the metallic Pads.
Particularly with High end processors these disburse themselves „heat transfer means “in the best way, since one can win some at cooling performance.

Another review www.hardware-aktuell.com:

Coollaboratory has released a market-ready cooling concept with the Liquid MetalPad, which has fighted ahead to the top in our review. The Liquid MetalPad leaves even the Arctic Silver 5 paste behind it.

Impressive. :)

I didn't think we'd have any significant improvements in thermal compound any more, but this looks pretty good. :)

The CoolIT Freezone comes with some pretty good thremal paste already, but I may pick up a pack of these pads and try them.:D

Yes, they say it ruins aluminum and I personally have seen it ruin copper.
