Can a liquid cooler use Liquid Metal

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi Everyone 

It's my first post here, I've been watching the ltt videos on liquid metal as a thermal compound and wondered (despite it being costly).  Could liquid metal be used in a water cooling system?

tl;dw: Yes, you can, but it's corrosive, toxic, conductive and not as viscous as water (without diluting it). And the result isn't that much better to make it worth the risks.

I would use liquid metal only under the IHS of CPUs that aren't soldered and have bad temps...

In theory it could be used anywhere. Except with aluminium...


... but I'm no expert
