Liquid Metal After 2 Years – Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut

Liquid metal is somewhat controversial, many love it and sing it’s praises, stories of 20 degree drops in temperature are common place. Others are less impressed and reference examples of liquid metal eating it’s way through heatsinks or shorting out components and taking out an entire system as a result. But what’s the truth, is liquid metal good or bad, is using it really that risky or are the majority of issues caused by careless users.
