direct die cooling will never work unless you start pumping liquid metal.
The is a reason for an IHS (integrated heat spreader)is there, the thermal conductivity simply is not enough for any known liquid feasible to transfer the heat directly off the die.
The solution the put a slab of copper to spread the head over a larger area to transfer the heat to and because excluding silver it ranks higher thermal conductive charts of compounds and elements.

But if this was a great idea not too sure why when it was first talked about 15 years ago it isn't mainstream now I think the biggest obstacle was the jets becoming blocked with foreign matter.
