    Nice, me liquid metal knowing what it can do to some metals to metals over time. Its a big no for me, most daring I will use is IC Diamond 24 an apply once and done. Just don't change it out all the time and your cpu lid won't be lapped lol. Also knowing me I would get that liquid metal someplace it should not and then some aluminum or something else will do a Thanos on me haha.

    Yeah, funny that you should mention that ( corrosion ) because Thermal Grizzly has written on the packaging
    literally like ten times not to use it on aluminum :)  They must have trouble with people doing it anyway .
    I have a nickel plated copper heat sink .  That's supposed to be OK, and I've read that "most" CPU lids are nickel coated copper .
    It looks like it is .  LM can be a little messy .  I got a drop on the steel CPU clamp, but it was pretty easy to suck back up with the
    little syringe tool they give you .  The rest actually cleans up pretty good with just a piece of paper towel .
    It must be 100% removed from any electrical conductors of any kind if it gets on there of course .  It will short them .
    Can't use paper on the CPU, or heat sink though .  Can't let the paper fibres get on there .  Fortunately no lint Q-tips are included .
    The one thing I'll try differently if I use it again is I will apply it to the CPU before putting it into the socket .  Maybe tape it down
    to the table .  That IC Diamond stuff is an interesting product .  I might try that some time .
     
    P.S.  a tip for anyone who wants to use LM, or any thermal paste for that matter; get things squeaky clean first .
           I recommend ordinary cleaning, then electrical contact cleaner spray ( auto parts store ), then included alcohol
           cleaner, or what have you, if provided by thermal paste mfg.
