LM liquid thermal compounf is the latest generation of thermal interfaces. LM compound does not contain non-metallic additives such as silicones or metal oxides. This high purity allows greatly increased thermal transfer compared to standard compounds. LM liquid metal compound is made from 100% liquid metal and is produced in a highly advanced production and developement process made for the highest requirements. Dwarfing all converntional thermal compounds and featuring easy application in combination with a thermal conductivity increased ten-fold over conventional compound, this is the ultimate thermal transfer solution. A multitude of tests and user reviews have shown that liquid metal thermal compounds leave all conventional thermal compounds (known to us) far behind in the dust. Important LM liquid metal thermal compound is not suitable for use on Aluminium surfaces. Comparison (see image gallery) CPU temperatues can be loswered from approx. 50°C to 44°C - an improvement by 6°C! Extent of delivery Syringe with dosing top for finest application and cap Gross weight approx. 3.7g Sufficient for multiple applications Please note the following points LM liquid thermal compound is currently the best thermal interface for electronic components. It can be used on CPU, GPU and other components, providiing an improved cooling performance by approx. 3°C to 7°C compared to conventional thermal compounds. LM compound was developed for high-end cooling applications and must only be applied to contact surfaces such as Copper, Nickel, Silver or Gold. It must not be applied to Aluminium surfaces! IMPORTANT LM compond is electrically conductive, hence all contact with conductor paths must be avioded. Being applied to the cooling surface, this conductivity is no hazard, as both contact surface (e.g. heatspreader or DIE) and heatsink themself are already electrically conductive.

Also it's an awesome price and has prime, what more could you want? Buy it already. I delidded my 8700k and used this between the IHS and die, and it lowered temps drastically. And there's a ton left over for future needs.
After installing the 8700k in the socket, I then used the best thermal paste out there (that's not a liquid metal) between the IHS and Monoblock, and that's Coollaboratory's Kryonaut according to De8auer. I wouldn't use this stuff between your CPU cooler, whatever it may be, and the CPU. I'm not sure if that will be worth it.
As for applying this liquid metal to whatever you're using it on.... less is more! You want to squeeze the tiniest little dot you can make with the syringe needle on this, and then spread it out with a cue tip or what have you. You do NOT want to use as much liquid metal as you do normal thermal paste. See pictures below.
Warning: As everyone knows, *do not use* on aluminum.
Lesser warning: Expect a 3 year life expectancy if it's on copper (over time it will cold-alloy into a crystalline paste that doesn't conduct heat well at all -- see pic); remove heatsink, scrape off CPU and heatsink, sand & polish heatsink (CPU will be ok) and you're good to go again.
Or... I nickel plated my heatsink; we'll see if I need to redo that in 3 more years.
But - Great stuff. 4.7GHz stable Sandy Bridge OC, max temp 75C on a Corsair water-cooled rig.
P.S. My cooler is the Scythe Mugen 5. Used NT-H1 as TIM between the IHS and the heatsink. It is not ideal to put liquid metal between the IHS and heatsink. Do your own research to know why. :)
Here is the code I used in terminal to max out my cpu:

OLD PASTE (Arctic Silver)
Fan on auto: 204 ºF
Fan at 100% speed: 180 ºF
Fan on auto: 196 ºF
Fan at 100% speed: 163 ºF
As you can see, the temps are a HUGE difference that you can really feel, quite literally. A definite buy for anyone with any computer!!!
