Although 2009 was not a good year for most people around the globe ( not that 2010 is any better so far ) it was the year that the first liquid metal CPU Cooler named LM10 was released by an unknown company named Danamics. Although the entire concept of the unit was something unique the LM10 promised great performance levels which it never achieved and all that with a price tag of roughly 280Euros (350$). Some people rushed to call the LM10 a failure but i was not amongst them. Certainly the price/performance ratio was not what we had expected but since i recall the first steps of normal tower type CPU Air coolers or even the first water-cooling solutions that were introduced in the market almost a decade ago i know that the introduction of new concepts and technologies is always hard.
Founded on the principle of providing manufacturers of electronic hot spots the very best in cooling, Danamics started in 2005. Since then Danamics has worked on developing, manufacturing and commercialize their core technology, which centers around the principle of using liquid metal as a heat remover. The primary target for commercial products is semiconductors in the computer industry. The urge for better heat removal is driven by the obvious benefits - higher performance, less thermal failures, longer lifetime and less noise from cooling fans. Many of these benefits are also strived for in other industrial applications, where the heat problem is a constant challenge. As a company, Danamics is highly skilled, dedicated and informal. Today, Danamics is a part of the Dantherm Group, which was founded in 1958. Dantherm is known for its thermal expertise and holds worldwide manufacturing capacities. Dantherm is also listed on the Danish Stock Exchange. For more information about the Dantherm Group please visit www.dantherm.com
Danamics of course was not pleased with the results of the LM10 and so they immediately started working on a new and improved version which a year later they released under the name LMX. The LMX has improved liquid flow, comes with two 120mm fans in push and pull configuration and also costs less than half the amount of money of the original LM10. Still since the installation of the original LMX PowerBooster is somewhat hard for some people Danamics introduced the LMX Superleggera version which comes with the Powerbooster2, a smaller and easier to install version. However the Superleggera comes without any fans installed and though the price is less than the LMX adding a couple of 120mm fans brings it amongst the same levels, the good thing is however that if you happen not to like the SilenX fans that come with the normal LMX version you can get the Superleggera and install your own.
