EVGA TORQ X10 Laser Gaming Mouse Review (Page 5)

In the EVGA software we see it says "Unleash" at the top, and just below that, the software identifies the TORQ X10 that is connected. The top arcs are settings for DPI levels and mouse sensitivity, which can be set by moving the needles, or with the boxes under them. In the lower section we see the default button settings by hovering over any of the nine buttons, and this is also where you switch from right to left hand use.


Under button settings is where you can reassign any of the buttons to do as you wish. The left column is only a snippet of the preset options, and the next column is where you select which button to set. We also see that by clicking on the "Profile" arrow at the bottom we can select which of the five profiles we are setting functionality to.


The DPI section under the advanced settings is where you can adjust the four levels of DPI wanted for each of the four on-the-fly settings. By use of the sliders, or direct entry on the right, the DPI ranges from 200 to 8200. To the far right is where the polling rate for each setting can be set.


The OS section, under the same tab, allows users the option to use angle snapping and mouse acceleration, or you can turn both off. We also see another sensitivity adjustment, scroll speed adjustment, and a place to address the double click speed with a test that flips the switch if you click the right speed.


The last section here is for the LEDs. This is where the LED mode is set to either on, off, or a breathing mode. Lower in this window is how the scroll wheel LED or LED1, and the EVGA LEDs or LED2 are changed. There are six options other than the stock red, and the brightness levels can also be adjusted.


Under Macro, we can name the command we want to build, and hit the record icon below it. The commands pop up on the right side, and will display the time intervals between each press, as well as timed commands.


The Macro Management section also allows users to search through anything on a local hard drive, and either import old ones, or later in the life of this mouse, you can also bring up commands you have built with the TORQ X10, but just did not want to store them on the mouse at that time. If they show at the left, they are currently on the mouse.


Profile management is where you can do much like what was offered for macros, but this is for the whole shebang. When you get a profile just right, be sure to save it. If you pick up the game later, or you plan to play games at a friend's you don't typically play at home, one stop here and you can shuffle through all of the full profiles, and only store what you want onboard at any given time.

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
