Coolermaster introduced 3 new mice: Reaper for the Aluminium series, Alcor and the Mizar. Reaper was evaluated previously.

Alcor is an optical mouse which uses Avago 3090 sensor and its as light as up to 120g with the cable and 86g without the cable. A lot of people would appreciate a very light mouse, some will not. A Logitech G400s weight without the cable is 118g, so those who have used MX518/G400/G400s can easily speculate how light the mouse really is.

CM_ALCOR_0004Keeping aside the weight factor, let’s see how good this mouse REALLY is!

Cooler Master MH630 Headset Review

The Cooler Master MH630 is a headphone without a DAC. Consequently, it doesn't have any fancy RGB lighting and effects. If you love to have RGB bling on a headset, this isn't for you. But the MH630 has everything else you could ask for- a detachable cable, built-in volume control and a detachable microphone. Since the Cooler Master MH630 has a 3.5mm jack it works great on almost anything you can connect it to. Moreover, there is also a splitter to enable you to connect it to a source that has a separate mic input.

Cooler Master CM310 Optical Sensor Gaming Mouse Review

Cooler Master has been in peripheral business for a long time, especially with regularly releasing newer keyboards and headsets. The Cooler Master CK550 and the MH751 are two good examples. The gaming peripheral market is over-crowded and yet it manages to sell. The last mouse I've reviewed from Cooler Master is the Alcor and the Mizar. I loved the Alcor optical mouse. It was an agile mouse with all the switches places in reachable areas and I wanted more was the grips the Laser mouse Mizar. This wasn't the only brand that had this point of view at the time since everyone was in the race to push laser sensors and the next best thing. I never really understood why optical sensors were considered less premium to justify lesser premium features when it was hassle-free, compared to laser sensors of certain makes that had quirks that took some firmware and sensor updates implemented by the manufacturer. Logitech was one of the gaming peripheral makers that was the first to jump aboard with its MX series. For some reason, it ditched the MX branding under G series- and now brought it back.
