Cooler Master Launches the MasterMouse S

Date: 2016/12/04
Cooler Master, a leader in design and manufacturing computer components and peripherals, today announced the launch of the MasterMouse S, an elegant and ambidextrous gaming mouse with intelligent RGB illumination, four DPI levels up to 7200 DPI, and ergonomics that aim to provide a secure and satisfying grip.


A Gaming-Grade Outfit

The MasterMouse S uses a solid PixArt optical sensor that enables you to switch between four customizable DPI levels from 400 to 7200 DPI. All the dpi values are provided without interpolation and the mouse also doesn’t use acceleration. Thanks to this the mouse doesn’t estimate your movements but really tracks them via the selected resolution. That is useful feature if you want to achieve a high level of precision. The body of the mouse offers six buttons out of which five can be assigned a secondary function that can be then activated via Cooler Master’s “Storm TactiX” button, which is also optional. Storm TactiX can be easily understood if we look at it as the “Fn” button we usually find on notebooks. The name of this function is probably from Cooler Master’s “CM Storm” heritage that it once used for gaming products. The inside of the mouse is also pretty solid. Thanks to the built-in 32-bit ARM processor and 512KB on-board memory, you can save macros and all your settings for up to five profiles for use on any computer without software. This means that your settings go wherever your mouse goes instead of being confined to the computer you normally use.


Customizable Full RGB Illumination
Two RGB illumination zones - one along the rim of the mouse wheel and one at the back-bottom edge – can both be customized from a full color spectrum of 16.7 million options as well as a wide range of lighting effects that can be assigned to each of the zones independently.
All of the illumination settings, buttons functions, macros, DPI levels and various sensor settings can be pre-programmed via the Cooler Master’s ecosystem software that comes along with the mouse.


Durability Inside and Out
The surface of the MasterMouse S is matte UV coating, which doesn’t wear easily and resists fingerprints. Both of the main buttons are equipped with Omron switches guaranteed to last 20 million clicks. The cable strain relief has also been built extra strong to endure gaming usage.
Accompanying the release is the MasterMouse Lite S, looking very similar in design but with simpler features. Weighing 86 grams, the MasterMouse Lite S comes with white LED illumination in two zones and a PixArt PAW3509 optical sensor that delivers up to 2000 DPI in three preset levels.
