From conventional Thermal Compounds to Liquid Metal, there is a lot of conflicting information out there regarding what you should use, where to use it and how often it needs replacing. I personally found it all very confusing. I’m not a scientist or Chemist, so I reached out to the professionals and engineers who actually make the stuff to learn more…..


In this video we take a look at the basic science behind Thermal Compounds and Liquid Metals and how they work and address some very common questions and concerns.

Do you need to replace your liquid metal at regular intervals?

Does it matter what type of metal your Heatsink or Waterblock is made out of?

Is it a good idea to use Liquid Metal between the CPU and Heatsink?

Is it safe to use a pure copper Heatsink or IHS with Liquid Metal?

Why does Liquid Metal go hard over time and id it bad?

How does Delidding a CPU actually reduce the temperatures?

Why exactly do stock Intel CPUs get so hot from factory?

By the end of this video you should have a clear understanding of all of the above.
