In the remainder of this article we focus primarily upon the installation and performance. Since publishing our KuFormula SHF1 Ultra preview we have also learned a few additional details from the folks over at Sytrin.

SteelSeries SteelSound 5H V2

Throughout the 1990's computer gaming was largely perceived as a past time for couch potatoes or as a form of relaxation for teenagers, but the gaming industry has largely expanded in all directions even onto the professional playing table. Just as with any athletic sports, having the proper equipment is critical for performing well against your opponents. SteelSeries has been one of the companies to recognize this growing market, and their mission statement is to create performance enhancing gaming gear. Of the products they manufacturer at this time is mouse pads, keyboards, headsets, software security, gaming gear accessories, and gaming wear. We have looked at several SteelSeries products in the past, and today we are trying out the SteelSound 5H V2 gaming headset, which is slated to be an optimized version of the original 5H headset.

Razer Barracuda HP-1

For years now, Razer and their array of gaming mice as well as mouse surfaces have impressed us. Most recently, they have begun to venture into developing audio products for gamers, with their inaugural product being the Barracuda HP-1 Headphones. The Razer Barracuda HP-1 Gaming Headphones rely upon eight drivers, individual channel volume control, and a detachable microphone to deliver the ultimate audio experience while gaming.

OCZ Tempest CPU Cooler

OCZ has been gearing up for a break-through in the cooling arena for some months now. Earlier this year they had announced the Cryo-Z phase-change cooler, but unfortunately this product has yet to hit the retail sector. For those after air-cooling, OCZ Technology had recently unveiled the Tempest CPU Cooler. The OCZ Tempest offers a pure copper base, four heatpipes, and pure aluminum fins while supporting all major AMD and Intel sockets.

SilverStone Nitrogon NT06

Last year we looked at the SilverStone Nitrogon NT03. This cooler was quite compact in size, but it managed to adequately cool an overclocked Pentium D 820. Up on the review block today we have the Nitrogon NT06, which promises to cool even the hottest CPUs in the world.

ASUS WL-500g Premium

ASUS has been known for their motherboards and graphics cards for some years now, but few have been exposed to their recent efforts to create viable wireless networking equipment. One of their most recent efforts is focused on the WL-500g Premium. With support for attaching external hard drives and cameras, as well as a unique download platform, ASUS has certainly placed itself in an interesting position. Did we mention that the router's firmware is also open-source and runs Linux?

CaseBuy LCD EZ PSU Tester 3

While this product may look good on paper, after we had disassembled the unit, and carried out our thorough testing process at Phoronix, we found the results to be very dissenting. In our tests, the reported Voltages by the CaseBuy LCD EZ Power Supply Tester 3 were inaccurate.

AlphaShield X2 Professional Firewall

Two years ago to this day we had first reviewed the AlphaShield Hardware Firewall. This product was unlike anything we had ever come across, as it was personal dedicated hardware firewall designed for consumer use. The firewall is designed to be placed between the cable/DSL modem and router, or to be placed as the intermediary on the network to a specific computer, in order to add an additional layer of security. In fact, the AlphaShield Firewall claims a 100% guaranteed level of security or your money back. Since we first had the AlphaShield Firewall at Phoronix back in 2004, they have continued to revolve around improving network security, and have recently unleashed the AlphaShield Professional Edition.
