Most of the gaming we did was at 6000 DPI, and the M65 is smooth and accurate, so much so that our kill rate in PUBG has gone up. While the main buttons all work, and we play with that much DPI to not have to lift the mouse much at all, we do find ourselves running into the same problem we found with other M65 mice. Unless you have overly large hands, or you hover your hand over the mouse for a claw grip, we feel the sniper button is still too far forward.

With our relaxed palm grip, we have to adjust our grip any time we wanted to try the sniper feature. This is the one thing that could be a deal breaker for many users and is something that must be considered when looking into getting the M65 RGB Elite. However, with DOOM, we do much less sniping, and we got right into the game and still were able to do what we needed to move on to the next map. While many may scoff at Golfing for video gaming, we do find it is a good test with a display of the straightness of the swing, and we could see that when the mouse is meant to go straight, even without angle snapping employed, it is more than able to do the job.

Windows and Productivity

When it comes to moving the mouse around our 4K desktop, we can appreciate the high DPI, however, using 18,000 DPI gets out of hand quickly. With anything over 10,000 DPI, we had issues overshooting our desired target, and double-clicking becomes an issue as the mouse moves between clicks and can move the cursor off the shortcut. Back to the 6000 DPI, we had no problem hitting the mark for opening images, highlighting text, or even when it comes to removing finite points of dust from images. The glide is smooth, and the left side rest is comfortable for the thumb, while the ergonomic shape keeps you comfortable for hours of use. Something else we noticed is that there is no setting for lift-off distance, and as we got closer to the edge of the mouse pad, the sensor would stop reading at times, so be sure your surface is as flat as possible, or keep the M65 RGB Elite on the flattest parts of it for the best results.

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.
