Inside the Morpha X

Four screws hold the Morpha X together, and we can see that the Omron switches stay with the top section of the mouse. The lower section is where the PCB is located, and we are about to tour that area in the next few images.

Where we typically see a switch for the left click button, in the Morpha X we see only a set of tabs which make contact with pins on the removable switches in this design. As to the scroll wheel, it uses an ALPS switch to give the scroll wheel its segmented feel, and we also see a small PCB entering the wheel, and is how it is illuminated from the inside.

Making the page forward and page back buttons functional, we find a pair of blue iB switches in place here. These switches require medium force to click them, and there is a report which is quite audible once the switch is activated.

Under both the profile button and the DPI selector button, EpicGear uses this pair of black pad style switches. They are soft to use, and while there is some noise associated with them, it is muted compared to the rest of them.

In control of everything the Morpha X is capable of doing, we see the NXP LPC11U35X MCU. This is an ARM Cortex-M0 processor with a 50MHz clock speed, and it can store up to 128Kb of memory for profiles and settings.

Back at the front of the mouse again, this time on the right side of it, we see another set of tabs to accept the pins on the Omron switches. Behind them, we see another black pad style switch used for the click function of the scroll wheel.

Since the Morpha X comes with a gray suit on, and we took most of our images with it wearing that, we figured we would change things up a bit. Since we had to open things up anyway, it was a perfect time to dress the Morpha X in its cleaner looking white attire.

When it comes to the lighting, there are two ways you can go. You can opt for custom coloration or use the mode where it cycles through all of the colors as it does when it is initially powered. The second option is to start cycling through the five profiles, which each have a solid color designating its usage. All of the lights, the one in the scroll wheel, the DPI level indicator, the EG logo on the heel, even the EpicGear name on the ESC will all glow the same color, no matter what LED setup is chosen.
