Gigabyte Force M7 Thor Gaming Mouse Software
In the packaging, the Force M7 Thor has no manual or driver CD. However, if you head over to Gigabyte’s website you will be able to download a software program specifically for the mouse. It is not the most feature packed software for a gaming mouse, but it is very simple to use and does it’s job very well.
The top section of the software is where you map your 5 buttons to certain keybinds and actions. The left click is not able to change, however all the other buttons are. You can choose to set actions to the buttons such as copy, paste, forward, back, and scrolling up or down. However, most gamers will want to use the custom keybinding option. This allows you to do things like set one of the thumb buttons to “R” so that you will be able to quickly reload in FPS games. This comes in very handy, and is always nice to have.
The lower half of the software is dedicated to setting custom DPI values to your 3 levels of selections. You can go as low as 400 dpi and all the way up to 6,000 dpi on the high side. The values increase by 400 dpi, so you can adjust the settings to fit your various playing/working styles. Want to have a speedy dpi setting for running and gunning and a much lower, more precise dpi setting for sniping. This software allows you to do exactly that.
The Force M7 Thor’s polling rate is set at 1000Mhz. Below you can see my results of testing this rate, and how well the mouse performs compared to the stated specs.
Next, we are going to take a look at how well the mouse performed in gaming and desktop applications.
