Danamics LMX Superleggera review -
As always, the packaging -- so you know what to look for in the stores. Nice and clean packaging. Everything is packaged and bundled safely inside the box. First impressions, it really is a good looking cooler.
Once opened up you'll spot the liquid metal cooling unit and a small 3.5" device, that in fact is powering the electromagnetic pump inside the cooler.
Along with all gear you'll find that Danamics did a splendid job including any mounting bracket you might need, socket 775, 1156, 1366, AM2, AM2+, AM3 are all compatible.
Here we have the cooling unit all by itself, our revision came with two variable PWM fan (120mm). There is no selectable fan controller embedded, but you insert the fan header into the motherboard's CPU power connector and that one obviously is PWM controlled from the BIOS. You can have it rotate at a fixed say 60% RPM, or more heavy duty at 80% RPM, or have the motherboard regulate this all by itself. The fans are rather noisy though.
It has been a topic of much discussion, the liquid metal based LMX CPU cooler from Danamics. With actual liquid metal inside a heatpipe loop, which is circulated by a electromagnetic pump creating flow inside the CPU cooler, touching the aluminum heat fins which are armed with two fans to quickly and easily get rid of heat. Stuff from the future? Hmm, nope... we test the real thing.
