Inside the Pulsefire FPS
The feet need to be removed to tear this mouse down, and a special foam tape is used, so it splits and is not reusable, so do this at your own risk. After removing four screws, we find that the top half comes off with nothing tied to the lower section. On the bottom section is a two-layer PCB design, and no extra weights are present.
An Omron white switch us found under the left click button, and by now we all know how they feel and what they sound like. Rather than the usual suspects, HyperX opts for the D2FC-F-7N(20M) version that boasts a twenty million click life.
Backing the page forward and page back buttons on the left side of the Pulsefire FPS, we find a pair of red Kailh switches. These require similar force to the Omron switches, and also have a similar report when actuated.
The light green or yellow Kailh switch seen here is what we find under the DPI selector button. This requires much less force than the previous two switches, and the report is quieter with a more hollow sound to it.
After removing the upper PCB, we could gain a view of the optical sensor used. The paint on the sensor is faint, and it took a magnifying glass to make out for certain that this is indeed the PixArt PWM3310.
Making our way back to the front, this time on the right side, we see the second Omron twenty million click switch. Behind it is a pad style switch with a brown plunger for the scroll wheel, and is relatively soft and makes almost no noise when pressed.
Plugged in and ready to test, the HyperX Pulsefire FPS comes to life with the glow of red under all of the LED zones for the time being. The red accent on the scroll wheel is backlit and is bright, as is the HyperX name on the heel. The DPI selector LED is dim, but will show three other colors dependent on the DPI level in use.
