SteelPad 5L

The last time we had looked at a SteelPad product was back in 2004 when trying out their newly unleashed QcK+. However, this morning up for testing we have their new SteelPad 5L. What is unique about this mouse pad is that it is composed of five layers -- plastic, cloth, soft polyisoprene, hard plastic, and rubber elements. However, just how well is this pad? We will find out today.

Sytrin AirCon PAC-500 Preview

Want to take your overclock to the next level? What we are previewing today is an exclusive product that will be on limited display during Computex Taipei 2006, and for those that are fortunate enough to see this product first hand should be awed by its abilities. We have had one of these hand-made prototypes in our labs for many weeks now, and while the design is not yet finalized, it certainly will have the capabilities to make your system go from warm to cold.

Razer Armadillo

With spending a great deal of time preparing for the new Computex launches and coverage to come next week, we have been a bit busy around here but managed to spend some time with Razer's Armadillo. While the Armadillo is not nearly as fascinating as the Razer Copperhead, Krait, or Tarantula, it certainly is an interesting little piece of hardware.

Razer Krait

Since Razer's first product, the Boomslang, they have been on an almost unstoppable winning streak with their various gaming peripherals. The last Razer mouse that we had the opportunity to caress was the Razer Copperhead, and today we took up the opportunity to examine one of their recent creations, the Krait. What new features do the Razer Krait bring to the mouse pad? For one, its rare in the fact that its a gaming mouse yet they reverted to a traditional three button design, compared to other mice that now sport five or even eight buttons.

Thermalright V-1 Ultra

A name that is synonymous with computer enthusiasts and overclockers when it comes to cooling manufacturers is Thermalright. While Thermalright has experimented with GPU and Chipset coolers in the past, their product efforts primarily focus upon AMD and Intel CPU cooling solutions. Up on the review block today we have the Thermalright V-1 Ultra GPU cooler, which appends a third heatpipe over the V-1 original.

SilverStone Sugo Pack

What do we have up on the review bench today? Well, it is certainly like nothing else we have seen in the past -- in fact, it is simply a bag. However, this is plain and simply not an ordinary bag we have seen in the past for transporting computer parts but is rather an engineering masterpiece. This solution is made by SilverStone Technology and is dubbed the Sugo Pack. Do not let its name fool you, as the bag simply is not limited to SFF enclosures.

Thermaltake BigWater SE + Volcano

Hitting the Internet this morning is our overclocking expedition with Thermaltake as we see how far a single-core Intel Pentium 4 processor can be pushed when using a BigWater SE and Volcano 4005. Just how well can Thermaltake push the limits when it comes to liquid cooling? The results in front of us today are certainly surprising.

Razer Mantis Speed/Control

The Razer Mantis Speed and Control mats are composed of Fibertek by Everglide, oversized to ensure the mouse real estate is not lacking, and a rubber base ensures a reliable grip on the smoothest surfaces. Will the Razer Mantis continue in the company's legendary success with the eXactMat, Diamondback, and Boomslang products? Today on our desks, we have both the speed and control versions of the Razer Mantis, which claims to be a precision mousing surface. Today, however, we will find out for ourselves precisely as we pair it up with their infamous Coperhead.
