sounds like a dodgy idea because it WILL cool DOWN and set, unless it is mercury and thats poisonous i think.
Liquid Nitogeon is a good idea, Dry Ice is a good idea but liquid metal cooling is a bad idea
this is another reason why i dont like ATI, they put liquid metal cooling in there cards.
Nano Coolers also use liquid metal coolers

no it is a metal based polymer that I posted on it a while back it is supposed to be better than water cooling because it is more dense and has a boiling point of around 2000°C
here is the company website

There is all kinds of issues regarding liquid metal cooling, and there have also been numerous posts on it already, one done by me.

Here is on by nubius:

Another Nubius one:

A simple search would have yeiled many results with the answers. I dont think it is mass marketed yet, I know of someone who contact nanocoolers and they got a prototype model to test I believe.
