WEB: Cooler Master MM710 MSRP: US $49.99 | ZAR 699 | AUTHOR: Jonathan Horne

The latest trend in mouses is an ultra-low weight, with multiple manufacturers releasing their vision of a lightweight peripheral. These devices feature some very unique designs, with the likes of drilled shells to save every gram possible. This type of design was first seen about half a decade ago with the ThermalTake Ventus. However, it has only recently become mainstream. Cooler Master is one of the manufacturers pushing lightweight mice, and today we take a look at the Cooler Master MM710.

In a world soon to be overrun by PCI-Express Gen 4 NVMe SSDs, we find ourselves looking at a Gen 3 drive. This may seen almost archaic at a glance, but unless you have an AMD X570 motherboard you’re currently limited to Gen 3 speeds. As Gen 4 drives carry a price premium, future-proofing isn’t necessarily a wise choice. Unless, that is, you can make use of the speed right now.

More and mouse peripherals come out each day, but hardly any cater towards left-handed users. The Corsair M55 RGB PRO addresses that issue by offering an ambidextrous design, with a perfectly symmetrical layout. This offers an identical experience irrespective of the handedness of the user. What’s more, the mouse comes in at a rather low price point with an impressive featureset on paper.

Cooler Master is one of the older names in gaming cases, and they’ve pioneered a lot of what we use today. While most if their innovations have been in the cooler industry, their cases are not an exception. Cut-outs behind the motherboard tray for easy access to cooler back plates? That was Cooler Master. Covers for said cut-outs? That, too, was Cooler Master. The company has come a long way with their case designs, and today we’re having a look at their MasterBox K500 offering, which is available in black.

GIGABYTE X99 Gaming-5P

GIGABYTE X99 GAMING-5P

X99 Gaming 5P

Here with me, is one of GIGABYTE’s latest X99 motherboard. Specifically, the GAMING 5P that is as you’ve guessed by now, part of the CHAMPION series. If you’re unfamiliar with the CHAMPION series, it is simply the re-engineered X99 motherboard family featuring the newer 2083 pin CPU socket or better known as “the OC-Socket”.
