Although the final specifications of the GF100 have not been released yet, there is quite some material available, since Nvidia showed systems at the CES where they also presented the tech demos of the GF100.

Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra: New high-end liquid metal thermal compound

Up to today the Liquid Pro of Coolaboratory is in matter of heat transfer capabilities one of the best thermal compounds. But it has one big disadvantage: Its consistency: First of all it is difficult to apply (the Liquid Pro has a low viscosity like mercury) and secondly it is difficult to remove once it is on the processor. Coollaboratory has a metal pad that avoids this, but has another disadvantage instead. It can be used only once and needs a ‘burn-in': So it has to be brought to a very high temperature once so it gets liquid.
