Cool World's First Liquid Metal-Based CPU Cooler


I checked the Danamics site, it claims it's commercially available but it doesn't say from where also no reviews.
It looks promising maybe my next cooler for Nehalem.
I wonder how soon we will have a good choice of custom coolers for the Nehalem Socket 1366.

Danamics debuts liquid metal-based LM10 CPU cooler
by Donald Melanson, engadget
Still not satisfied by the many, many cooling options out there to keep your toasty CPU under control? Then perhaps upstart Danamics' new liquid metal-based LM10 cooler will meet with your approval. According to the company, the LM10 is not only the first liquid metal-based cooler to hit the market, but it says it'll do a better job at keeping your CPU cool than most water-based cooling systems. That's apparently possible thanks to a combination of liquid metal (the exact specifics of which seem to be under wraps) and a "multi-string" electromagnetic pump, which has no moving parts and doesn't require external housings or large reservoirs. Unfortunately, there's no word on pricing or availability just yet, but judging from the way the company's talking about it, it seems like it's about ready to go.
More details here

Too much toxic (and probably the selling of mercury is now also strictly regulated ).

My take is that it's some indium-gallium alloy. These alloys remain liquid at room temeprature just like mercury and they're not beleived to be toxic.

I do remember another company many years ago saying the same thing then dumpped it as it was too expensive and performance was only slightly better then heat pipes.
