XM1 Config Software

Once downloaded and installed, we went ahead and opened up the XM1 Config software, and the first tab is open for "buttons." You may start to think about button remapping, but that is not even close. What this window offers is simply the ability to use the default function, or for the middle click and side buttons, one can disable them if desired.

The sensor tab is where one goes to address the CPI level and which colors identify the four CPI settings that can be saved. There are two ways to change the CPI. In the box that says 400, for instance, you can highlight and direct enter a number, which has a one CPI adjustment rate. The other option is to use the arrows to the right of the numbers, which jumps in fifty CPI increments. There is a checkbox for ripple control, and there is a section on LOD where 1mm or 2mm can be selected, and also a "Default" box to reset the changes made in this tab.

If you wish to use a different color to identify the current CPI setting, all you have to do is to click on one of the colored portions of the four boxes. Once clicked, the smaller window opens, which allows for four additional colors than those already in use.

The update tab is a one-stop-shop to make sure you have the latest and greatest in both firmware for the XM1 as well as software to control it. In the same tab, you can also click the reset box, which will reset the mouse back to factory defaults, deleting any work you may have done here.

The support tab offers up a one-click box that takes you to the XM1 FAQ page so that you can sort through various points and see if it covers your questions, but sadly the page errors out. If you cannot find what you need there, there is a link to the support page, but for us, clicking the link does nothing even though it highlights when hovered over. Hopefully, these are things that will get sorted in later software updates.

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.
