The Suprcool still has a small pump in it to my knowledge. I think the special thing about this Captherm one is that it's meant to rely on convection rather than anything mechanical for the movement of the liquid. They both rely on different technologies for the materials as well. I'm grouping all three together because they're all brand new, innovative CPU heatsink technologies/designs that are meant to debut very shortly.

well if they can fill a gap between phase cooling and water cooling... if there is one and if there is it would basically be room temp, temps.

That's exactly what this is, explosion welding or explosion bonding. Essentially two or more dissimilar metal plates that cannot be normally welded are put into a trench with a small gap between them then covered in explosives and buried. The explosion forces the metal plates together with enough force for them to bond.

It is very common in the construction of large industrial heat exchanges which handle corrosive materials - a thin sheet of expensive corrosion proof material is bonded to a cheaper base material (usually carbon steel) to use in tube sheets.

It's interesting that they chose to use that process for something small though, generally for smaller heat exchangers you would just build the entire thing out of the corrosion proof material.

I think its a very expensive manufacturing technique unless they somehow got some magic behind to producing them cost effectively...the alloy is then CNC milled to the shape of the product according to the man in the CES video, which of course adds more cost since I've dealt with parts produced through CNC machining at work which are far more costly than traditional machining here in LA.

there's also explosive stamping. Basically you either blow the metal into a one sided mold, or use varying amounts of explosive against an unmoving surface like the ground wtih a metal plate on top.

it's possible they could get a similar effect from hydraulic molding but the equipment is very expensive, whereas while explosive molding won't scale as well, the setup is very cheap. CNC also has low volume and setup cost advantages. This is a startup, so it makes sense. They will probably move to different manufacturing techniques more effective on a larger scale as they expand.

Also in the vid something that i noticed (inconsequentially) he bragged it was all made in America bar a few small parts from China. For me it kind of misses the point when the factory is fully lights out and robotic, it could be on the freaking moon and only the same handful of people get paid.

Lol I was thinking the same thing; Made in North America... By Chinese Robots. I bet if they could migrate the Chinese work force to North America they would have done that cause it would have been cheaper than the robots.

Aside from costing tens of thousands of dollars for the fluid, isn't that thing like a bleve waiting to happen?
