Has anybody tried the new Danamics LMX liquid metal cooler? or found any good online reviews?

Well, it hasn't been released yet, that I know of, and at nearly $300 USD, I doubt you'll find it being shipped to too many reviewers or a whole bunch of people willing to shell out that much cash for unproven tech. Maybe early adopters with deep pockets..........also worth noting that the original LM10 was only as good as a much less expensive Thermalright 120 cooler, in some cases the test proc ran a degree hotter than the Thermalright. It doesn't appear from the few news releases that Danamics has changed the pump or structure enough to make any significant dent against water cooling. That said, the LMX isn't available yet, so there's no test reports.

Danamics uses a mix of sodium and potassium, both of which are metals that become liquid at 12C (give or take) temps. There's actually quite a few metals that are liquid, mercury is just the best known.

I should also note that the mix used (called NaK) is a reactive metal, meaning it will react violently with even just the moisture in the air. Because of this, the LMX will never be available in the US or Canada.

Pure metal, anyway.
