CoolerMaster Sentinel ZERO-G game mouse review -
Specifications and Features
So then, in many ways the Zero-G looks and feels very familiar to the original Sentinel mouse. The device comes with a scanning resolution of 5600 dpi and an OLED display at the top for you to display your clan tags. Truth be told, the Zero-G is in fact very similar in terms of the specifications.
We spot an improved 5600 DPI Twin-Laser though for increased precision and accuracy. Memory now comes in the form of 128KB Sentinel-X Memory, O-LED for DPI management and custom logo, 8 programmable buttons, 1000Hz polling rate, 1ms response time and max acceleration of 50G.
At the bottom of the mouse you can open up a small latch, here you'll notice the adjustable weight system inside the Zero-G that will allow up to 5 x 4.5g weights to be added.
You will notice that the Zero-G follows a different color-scheme to the original Sentinel gaming mouse. Cooler Master Storm will be using this silver/grey color-scheme to identify premium products in their range.
A good programmable mouse these days comes with a deep software suite, that part was updated as well. The one thing that must be said is that the Sentinel offers a complex and wide variety of control over the settings and functionality of the mouse, and Cooler Master did that really well. Sensitivity ranges, rapid fire modes, macros, and scripts can be edited through a graphical user interface and saved to five different profiles in the internal memory of the mouse. We'll look into the software suite later on in this article though.
|Tracking Engine||Storm Tactical Twin-laser Sensor|
|Dimensions||83.5mm x 135mm x 40mm|
|Mem||128KB Sentinel-X memory|
|OLED||Custom logo personalization|
With a freaking 5600 DPI mouse it makes sense to use DPI adjustments, and obviously button controlled DPI switching has been introduced to the mouse so you can trigger DPI on the mouse itself.
More fun is of course the little OLED screen, which just looks too damn cool. The little single color OLED screen allows tiny customized clan logos to be uploaded and displayed directly on the mouse itself, tiny though... you have 42 pixels available for this. We've already mentioned this in the introduction, much like most gaming mice these days the Sentinel Advance also has a weight system, which lets you fine-tune the total weight of your mouse in increments of 4.5 grams.
For this mouse CM teamed up with FutureMark and made a Shattered Horizon edition, you will receive a game trial along with it. But still, next to being an excellent mouse the coolest thing has to be the fact that Cooler Master integrated a little OLED screen inside the mouse... So let's fire up this review and check out what Cooler Master has in store for us with the Sentinel ZERO-G game mouse.
Cooler Master just released within the CM STORM line of products the Sentinel ZERO-G, an updated version of the last generation product, that TBH I still use. The Sentinel ZERO-G offers everything its older brother already has, but is tweaked, optimized and comes with a few surprises. We again spot the cute little OLED screen, adjustable weight system, superduper link braided 2M chord, and upgrade to 128kb of memory and yeah, it is just a really nice upgrade to what was previously launched.
CoolerMaster Hyper TX3 review
We test the new CoolerMaster Hyper TX3 CPU cooler. Though the cooler will not be high-end performance wise, it can still manage the latest Core 2 Duo and Quad processors really well, and sure, overclocked as well. This new TX3 also supports the upcoming Core i5 processors from Intel based on Socket LGA 1156. Typically this would not be a massively interesting release of course, however... with a sales price of only 14.95 EUR/USD let's face it... the dynamic certainly changes for the better.
CoolerMaster Aquagate MAX review CPU liquid cooling
A test on the CoolerMaster Aquagate MAX. This system is designed to be used inside your computer case for a completely self-contained system. If you are looking for a liquid cooling system to use for your performance computer the Cooler Master Aquagate Max may be just what you need. Dual 1200mm radiator, excellent looking reservoir and 400 liter/h pump, nice thick tubing and a very glossy water-block. A very interesting fact is .. it's not very expensive.
CoolerMaster Cosmos S review
CoolerMaster today introduced a new PC case/chassis updated from their Cosmos line of products. This unit is based on a standard Cosmos 1000 with some attention-grabbing new modifications targeted at the high-end and enthusiast consumer with a diminutive amount of money to spare. It's huge, it's profound, it's impressive, it's striking and it's called the Cosmos S; with the S for Sport.
