About the Gamdias Ares…

Most of the combo reviews I’ve written so far is from Cooler Master. It started with Devastator, continued with Octane and then the Masterkeys Lite L which is better out of the three. Gamdias is making a lot of gaming keyboard and mouse combo dubbed as ‘Ares’ and this particular one is the GKC6000.

The Gamdias Ares essential combo comes in a standard packaging. The keyboard is modelled as Ares GKB6000 while the mouse is the Ourea GMS5500 which is available as a standalone mouse. The combo does utilize Gamdias one-utility-fits-all Hera software.

Cooler Master MM710 Gaming Mouse Review

Cooler Master has a good share of mechanical keyboards since its CM Storm days. But its venture towards gaming mouse has an erratic hit or a miss. I did like the CM Storm Alcor and the shell of the CM Storm Mizar but that was about it. Cooler Master really needed something that can have the best of both worlds. But CM Storm Alcor was light, a pro in itself wasn't really pushed ahead.
