Default Sapphire Blizzard -Details!

For those who recently heard, Sapphire is coming out with a new technology to cool your video card.. Liquid Metal Cooling. Here is what I've been told about the new tech.

Regarding the engineering details of components, physical attributes etc these are as of yet to be released in great detail for the reason that the unit displayed at E3 is a prototype.

Basic Liquid Metal Cooling Loop System Variable Components:
Liquid Metal
Electromagnetic Pump
Source Exchanger
Ambient Exchanger
Fan (low DB)

LM Loop Features:
Extremely high heat transport capability
Extremely high heat flux densities
Low thermal resistance
Low power consumption
Scalable heat removal/power consumption
Light weight, orientation independent solutions
High reliability – no moving parts in pump
Silent pump performance, Low acoustic noise

I hope to take a look at this card in the future. They say that the cooling is even better than water cooling, due to the non-conductive part of metal, so this sounds like an ultimate overclockers card.
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
