Inside the KIRO
Four screws found under the feet will allow this mouse to be internally viewed. Be mindful of the pair of cables connection the side switches to the PCB, but otherwise, once the screws are out, this mouse has tabs at the front which hold the halves together.
On both sides of the upper section, you will find a PCB holding two switches. In this case, these switches are white TTC switches, and they are soft to activate and also offer an audible click.
Under the left click button, we find an Omron D2FC-F-7N(RT) switch, which we assume provides the standard five million click lifespan. The RT is an unknown designation to us - who knows, maybe these are "Rally Tested"?
The DPI adjustment button is backed with the same white TTC switch we found backing the side buttons, and it also uses light pressure with an audible click. Rather than use a piece of black tape to surround the optical sensor, ROCCAT uses this plastic shroud to keep the sensor lighting hidden.
We do not suggest the removal of the cover as the optical LED has to be moved to do so. Under it, we do find the Avago A3050 as the numbers on the cover alluded to.
The chip labeled FO4266 is the LPC 32-bit ARM Cortex-M MCU used in the KIRO. This MCU is more than enough to handle the workload and features.
Making our way around to the right side, we find that the right click button is backed with another Omron switch. It seems almost mandatory now, that if you make a gaming mouse, it must include these as the main switches.
Once powered on, by default, the LED under the ROCCAT KIRO name and the logo is set to display fully on, yet at the same time, it cycles through the full RGB scale. While we took this picture with purple as the color of the moment, you do have access to select a color, as well as adjusting the speed in which the LED modes work.
