Liquid Metal as Thermal Interface Material

I was shocked when I pulled the cap off the syringe and saw that the needle was still there. I had no idea how the thermal interface material could get through an opening that small until I pressed the plunger slightly over the CPU. A drop of the material came out with no problem and sat there like a ball on the CPU. It was at that point that I got a little nervous since it looks just like Mercury. But then I had to think, "What company, whether in their right mind or not, would sell Mercury on eBay?"

lol, you can't use it with copper heatsinks, that kind of narrows it down a bit eh
