HELP! CPU cooling using non-conventional elements

Question asked by Tek C on Oct 10, 2018

Will liquid metal (gallium) and graphene/graphite sheets (carbon) react significantly if I use them together to cool CPUs? I was going to use two pure 24k gold foil sheets to sandwich in the liquid metal for their non-reactive properties, but then I found out gold is not the greatest thermal conductor, even though it's fine for electrical conductivity. I don't want the liquid metal to have direct contact with my CPU die (not sure what it is made out of, but it's an Intel mobile chip) or copper heatsink (warranty purposes), as I've heard overtime the gallium erodes them slowly, but I'm okay replacing my own graphene/graphite sheets periodically and re-pasting liquid metal as needed.
