CM Storm Octane Gaming Gear Combo Review

PC gaming over the past few years has taken off with games like League of Legends and CS:GO as these are games that most people can play on pretty much any PC system. With that happening we have seen an influx of PC gaming gear on the market, while not always the best gear for the price ether. There are a few great companies out on the market who make great entry level gaming gear. One of them who have stepped up to the plate with some great gaming gear over the past year is Cooler Master’s CM Storm line. Today we will be taking a look at the CM Storm Octane Gaming Gear Combo, which is made up of a gaming keyboard and mouse.

Special thanks to Cooler Master for sending over the CM Storm Octane Combo to test.


CM STORM packaged the Octane keyboard and mouse into the same retail box. The box is black with shiny silver writing. The front of the box has a picture of the Octane keyboard and mouse. Cooler Master also did a good job of putting the model number of both mouse and keyboard. Some of the specs they have listed on the front of the box for the keyboard is that it has 19 key Anti-Ghosting, 6 different dedicated multimedia keys, 7 different colors with multiple modes and a turbo mode. The mouse features which are listed are 10 million click lifecycle, illumination and on the fly color changing. 7 different colors to choose from like the keyboard, 4 preset DPI settings from 500 to 3500 and that the mouse uses the Avago 3050 optical sensor.
