Widening my horizons when the opportunity arose was a challenge I was willing to accept when Cameron asked if I would like to take on the peripherals segment along with the cases and coolers I already look at. I feel a fresh market chocked full of all sorts of products was something that was just what I was looking for to broaden my horizons, deliver an in-depth review, and of course, play with more cool new toys! Bear with me, as this is my first go at peripherals, but never the less, I want to bring the readers what they want to see. Feel free to leave comments below to help me in helping you if you don't see that I covered what you feel needed to be discussed.

Today I not only get to review something I have never reviewed before, but I also get to work with a company I have yet to purchase anything from up to this point. While I know ROCCAT has been in business, I always seemed to make do with cheap mice and keyboards, so to be fair, there aren't many peripheral companies I have purchased from. From what I can tell by browsing their site, there is a huge lineup of mice, keyboard, accessories and even laptops that ROCCAT offers. Most of the products are very feature rich and tons of thought has gone into the options and layout and ergonomics of all of their products, and what I have just received is almost the pinnacle of what a mouse can offer while looking sleek, being easy to use, and functioning as described.

Today we are going to be having a look at the Kova+ Max Performance Gaming Mouse from ROCCAT. For those familiar with previous products, there was a similar Kova mouse that this spawns from. Where the Kova has a system of button combos making changes in DPI, lighting and so forth, software takes over in the Kova+ and the 5+2 button configuration is traded in for a 7+2 configuration this time. There are many, many more changes that get made to the new Kova+ as well, so settle in and enjoy what ROCCAT and I deliver with the Kova+.

After a year of gaming, Chad caught the OC bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and Chad has had many air and water setups. With a few years of abusing computer parts, he decided to take his chances and try to get a review job. As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
