Inside the TORQ X10
Once the top sections are raised, there is a little groove just at the back edge of the front section that allows you to get a fingernail in there and pop off the top. The reason for this is to allow access to add weights to the area behind the LED DPI indicators.
To add weight, simply find what single weight, or any combination of two weights makes the mouse feel best for your needs. For the purposes of this image, we set in 8 grams worth of weight into the removable rubber weight holder.
After a little more disassembly of the TORQ X10, we can now see some of the internal components. For instance, we can see that EVGA supplied an Omron twenty million click switch under the left click button.
The top two buttons behind the scroll wheel use these TTC switches, which, just like the right and left click buttons, offer medium action with an audible click. The side buttons have a similar feel and sound to them, but we were not able to get the mouse torn down far enough to verify brand.
The scroll wheel uses a pad style switch for its click feature that is also audible when pressed; it is just slightly out of focus in front of the second Omron switch, with the part number D2FC-F-7N(20M), verifying the lifespan of these switches.
Removing the base plate would have allowed us to see the bottom of the PCB housing the laser sensor, but the MCU and actual laser sensor IC are on the flip side, so again, we could not verify what they are in images. However, we do get an idea of how the Torx screw works the red actuator system to push the center of the mouse up.
It was also at this point that we checked back with the paperwork and grabbed the book that shows where to install the anti-slip pads to the side of the TORQ X10, and as you can see, we applied them as described. These do add much more grip than the shiny plastic could ever hope to offer.
At this point we went ahead and connected that black nickel USB 2.0 connection, and plugged it into a PC. Now we have the TORQ X10 in one version of its lighting. The naming at the back and the lighting of the scroll wheel are customizable, but the DPI indicator LEDs will display in red at all times.
