Coollaboratory Liquid PRO > AS5?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I don't know how much anyone here knows about this thermal compound but I heard of it only once. Anyone have any reviews on the Coollaboratory Liquid PRO thermal compound?

Quote:
Cool Laboratory Liquid PRO consists of 100% liquid metal - the metal remains liquid at ambient temperature. The Liquid PRO paste has a heat transfer rate over nine times that of conventional thermal compounds!

Liquid PRO does not contain any non-metallic additives such as silicone. Due to this composition it out performs the best thermal compounds on the market by a factor 9.

The liquid metal behaves similar to mercury. Application of the thermal compound should be done with a small, lint-free brush to distribute the compound evenly across processor or heat sink. After installation the Liquid PRO will mature in 48 hours. It solidifies at that time and achieves its optimal cooling performance.

When applying Liquid Metal, a little more care is necessary compared to the application of conventional pastes. If you are inexperienced in dealing with computer hardware you may wish to pick another paste that has less performance and less potential risks. (Liquid PRO is electrically conductive)
Quote:
Coollaboratory Liquid PRO was designed for use with high quality coolers made of copper or silver. Aluminum coolers are unsuitable for use with Liquid PRO.

DO NOT USE ALUMINUM COOLERS
or allow Liquid Pro to come in contact with any aluminum, or other non-copper surfaces. Aluminum is not resistant against Liquid Pro and will result in damages to any aluminum surface. Aluminum will dissolve when in contact with Liquid PRO.

AMD CPUs use a Zinc-coated Copper Heat Spreader and therefore are perfectly safe to use.
Isn't it interesting that it doesn't work with coolers with an aluminum base AND it's "mercury-like?"

I had read the maximum PC story on this stuff. It works better then AS5 even when burned in, but not enough to justify the price premium.

There are several thermal compounds better than AS5. AS5 has greater exposure and is very easy to work with so it remains the most popular

I am aware that there are better compounds than AS5. But I want to specifically know about this one. The information given about it is intriguing.

i would be wary. it's 100% metal, so any contact with, say, your MoBo or your CPU pins is EXTREMELY dangerous for your system. let's say you apply a tiny bit too much compound to your cpu, and a tiny little bit squeezes off the edge of the CPU IHS. if this dripped into your CPU pins or down onto your motherboard or GPU...the relevent parts could easily be destroyed. not a *huge* risk as this scenario is relatively unlikely...but is it worth it for a couple degrees difference? also...i notice they say AMD cpu's use a zinc surface...but AFAIK Intel CPU's have an aluminum surface over the copper.... this means according to the manufacturer you'd have to lap your CPU before applying this TIM. again...AS5 is tried and true, and the performance difference here is likely quite minimal...especially if you've got a high-performance HSF, the TIM can only do so much!

I am using LCP now and honestly I was getting better temps with a proper application of AS5

there are several liquid metal pastes nowaday that all outperform conventional TIMs.
