Inside the M95

You not only can see the two separate plates much better now with the inner one removed to access the screws that allow you to split the body of the mouse, but you can also see there is a wire that is screwed into the aluminum plate. I'm not sure why, as it isn't a ground, but maybe it's for anti-static reasons.

Once you removed a pair of screws, you can slide back the top cover and then lift it off to expose the sub-frame that supports it and also directs the large LED in the back to illuminate the logo on the cover we just removed.

Pulling four more screws gets you to the meat and potatoes of the M95. There still are the side pieces to remove to get a close look at the internals, but we are getting there.

The left side of the mouse is held in with a screw and a series of tabs and grooves hold it in place. As for the right side it will just lift straight up off the posts that keep it on the base of the M95.

A rubber membrane with a hard center to activate the buttons is found behind the nine black switches. On the PCB are some low profile switches that are much softer than the original was sent out with.

The DPI buttons use those same low profile switches, but for the left click button Corsair went high-end with Omron D2FC-F switches that offer a 20 million click lifespan.

The right click used the same Omron switch, but you can see the aluminum scroll wheel and the switch behind it use ZHIJ switches since they are used much less often, and don't need the lifespan of the right and left clicks.
