When it comes to gaming, we love the Pulsefire Surge RGB. While we haven't needed to move from the 3000 to 5000 DPI range, the sensitivity is on point, and we can flick our sights around and hone in on the enemy without much hassle. Also when it comes to spray patters of guns like PUBG tries to emulate, we don't have to move all over the place, but instead are making much smaller moves and getting more successful with kills each day we use it.

We aren't sure of who on this planet would even need to play a game with 16,000 DPI unless the screen you were playing on happens to be at a stupidly high resolution and the size of the side of a barn. Even so, once you find the perfect DPI for your gaming style and comfort, the Pulsefire Surge RGB is a pleasure to have under your right hand. The software allows for customizations for games and applications to help simplify life, so you aren't continually swapping DPI levels and having to reassign functions, and where applicable, the Macro system is reasonably good too.

Windows and Productivity

When it comes to slinging the cursor around on the 4K monitor, we found no issues with stuttering, mouse wander form too much bass from the speakers, or any glitches we feel would make the experience unpleasant. However, when it came to editing images, the HyperX Pulsefire RGB has to be turned way down on the DPI scale.

Even at 3000 DPI, we found the mouse to be almost hypersensitive. The angles and curves were okay, but yet the slightest movement of the mouse would send the cursor sailing too far in many instances. We gave it a fair amount of time, and maybe 100 images worth of time to try to work it out, but no matter how long we used it, with the DPI anywhere over that mark, we spent more time editing our edits.

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.
