Danamics LMX Superleggera: 1.3 kilogram liquid metal CPU cooler for 120 Euros

The LMX Superleggera from Danamics arrived at the PCGH Test Lab. The super cooler had been delayed several times and is supposed to teach the established top dogs a lesson. But with a price of 120 Euros the device isn't really cheap though.

The Danish cooler manufacturer Danamics finally wants to get a breakthrough on the market with the new LMX Superleggera. People have heard about Danamics since 2008, but the liquid metal cooler, the LM10, which was announced back then, was never released to the retail market. In late 2009 the LMX was sighted with noticeable enhancements. Now PC Games Hardware received the latest version which is called LMX Superleggera. A test of the supper cooler is under construction.

The LMX Superleggera utilizes liquid metal to transport heat and weights 1320 grams. In difference to most other coolers the Danamics device doesn’t work with heatpipes: Metal tubes contain liquid metal which is pumped by electromagnets and transfers the heat from the contact plate to the fins. The pump works without moveable parts and is silent. It is supplied with energy via a 4-pin 12V power connector, but is not plugged into the PSU. A device called Power Booster 2, which is installed in a 3.5 inch drive bay, lowers the supply voltage of the pump to a minimum while it increases amperage to 15 ampere.

Currently there are only few shops that offer the Danamics LMX Superleggera. Currently the new CPU cooler is supposed to be sold for about 120 Euros. The range of delivery includes a mounting system for either Intel or AMD sockets, but no fan.
