liguid metal seems to be best on the die of intel cpu's
Hmmm...maybe I should ask you to post some proof of only 1C-3C difference since you're the one questioning my claim with no supporting results.
Along with my posts earlier in this thread, there are plenty of user posts above also running AIOs and more elaborate custom loops in the 45C range which you could use to do some deductive reasoning.
I'm sitting at 28C to 35C with 20-24C ambients on a hack-jobbed NZXT AIO setup. Those low temps are worth 2-3 extra Boost 3.0 bins for free. With LM i'm seeing only an 8-10C delta between the ambients and the core temps on my pedestrian AIO. Not to mention that with all things equal as with any GPU or CPU it will be more stable at whichever clock you run since it's running cooler
If thats not enough for you... there are posts in this thread
..right here on Overclock reporting 10-12C drops which is about what I'm getting out of it.
Is it for everyone? No. Yes it does take some dexterity and precaution. Is it 100% safe? Yes if done correctly. I've had it (have it) on my CPU, and 3 GPUs. My 4790K, my Titan X maxwell, 1080 and now the Ti without any issues.

LM thermal conductivity properties are simply unbeatable without resorting to solder.Edited by KraxKill - 3/14/17 at 12:52pm
