Cool video man. That liquid metal at the end is the coolest of the bunch. (I could become The Silver Surfer with that.)

That liquid metal spreads surprisingly well with only a small amount. It's definitely a bit trickier to "paint" the IHS with the brush that comes with it, but it's awesome stuff.

I found Liquid Ultra, Liquid Pro (and others) from Coollaboratory, through the "old" reviews over at Benchmarkreviews. But I also read that liquid metal as a TIM can cause corrosion when applied to surfaces it was not designed for.

Aye you can't use it on Aluminium it's only suitable for Copper or Nickle plated coolers.

So it's true.
I also bumped into Liquid Copper TIM at Coollaboratory. In the description it said something like suitable for all surfaces. I'm definitely going to look up the performance in reviews with newer CPUs (if there are any newer reviews).
