Cooler Master MM830 24000 DPI Mouse Review

Software

The revised Cooler Master Portal software is now one of the easiest to use that there is. Everything is clearly laid out and responsive. As you can see there are plenty of built in options for the most popular alternative configurations, including an autofire. Perfect if you're into clickers.

From the side view you can customise the D-Pad to be anything you desire and, with the use of the Tactix button and other buttons you can also configure the alternate bindings.


Cooler Master MM830 Configuration  

As you would expect from a high end modern sensor you can customise the DPI in incredibly fine detail, from so low you'd need to borrow an aircraft carrier as a mat to make it across the screen, all the way up to the type of sensitivity that can move your pointer from passing gentle breezes. There is also the ability to configure the MM830 to your particular surface, as well as adjust or disable the angle snapping that cause so much heartache.


Cooler Master MM830 Sensor DPI Levels  

The lighting options are fully featured from basic single colour options to all sorts of fancy effects. The Cooler Master lozenge design is even split into six separate zones, letting you do anything from rainbows to Pokeballs.

The OLED display has many built in display options, but the one that will find the most use is the ability to either upload your own 96x24 image or draw it on the supplied editor.

We will run through all the preset options on the next page, but it's worth noting you're not limited to a single choice, but can have the OLED scroll through as many selections as you need, at a timing of your choosing, and in any order.

Macros are easy to setup and adjust, with the ability to run them once or on a loop. It doesn't record pointer movements but otherwise everything is available to your creativity.

Lastly the MM830 supports four profiles with input and export options letting you share profiles if desired, or borrow another persons if they have a particularly cool or useful setup.

Who needs 24k DPI? Serious question as I'm no specialist when it comes to mice, but from my understanding: the higher the DPI = the faster your cursor moves.
So with 24k DPI: 1cm of movement ~ cursor moves from the left corner to the right on a dual 1080p screen setup...


My MX518 was set to 800 DPI and I don't actually know what my current G400's settings are, but my aim is quite on point in shooters and my movements aren't huge/long at all. So I don't understand the need for such high DPI numbers. If anything, you're getting WAY more inaccurate, although you have to move less to spin around in games. I always say that when it comes to keyboards and mice, it's a decision purely based on what you're used to.


So PLEASE, can someone enlighten me? My "knowledge" can't be correct, because if it was, these products wouldn't exist, right?Quote

The simple answer is high screen resolutions. 4K screens are pretty big, and higher DPIs can be handy if you have a multi-screen 1440p setup like myself. It also depends on how sensitive you want your mouse.

My mouse is 12000 dpi and I use it for my dual 1440p (+1x 1080p up top) screen setup. I don't really feel the need to go higher than that, but I wouldn't want to go much lower.

As far as gaming goes, the ability to do a quick 180 turn is helpful in some competitive shooters. It really depends how much you care about factors like that.Quote

As always: quick and comprehensive! Thanks for that! I've never left the realms of 1080p, but I do see this being the major factor. So with higher resolutions you have to set a higher DPI value if you want to keep your muscle memory - if we keep it gaming related. Makes sense now.Quote

If you play any shooter at 24k effective DPI you're an absolute madman. Quote

Yeah, I don't think I would ever get used to it. I'm not a competitive gamer though. give me a good story or a strategy game where I can make my own (Civ, Total War, Sins of a Solar Empire etc). They don't need insane DPIs.Quote
