CM Storm Havoc Mouse Review

Playing with the Havoc
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

The Havoc is a medium-sized mouse for right-handed users. The gripping style depends on the user’s hand size, but the mouse is more suited for palm-grippers. Being claw-grippers ourselves, we felt it was difficult to reach the button 6 (the forward button above the thumb rest), so we changed the profile function from the button 8 to that one, since it is a less used feature during gameplay. There is no weight adjustment system.

The Havoc slides like few mice we reviewed so far, thanks to the long side feet. The rubber grip for the thumb is also exceptional; it is unfortunate that CM Stom did not use the same material on the right side. Although it is stylish, the shiny plastic on the right side makes it sweat-prone and a little slippery when compared to the overall body. The scrollwheel is not dented, but the rubber coating makes it tight. Unfortunately, it does not scroll horizontally.

In terms of precision, the high sensitivity plus four resolution settings make the Havoc perfect for intense virtual shootouts in FPS matches and selecting a combo of powers in MMORPGs; we recommend lower dpi settings when sniping or touching up images in a photo editor software. With lots of configuration options and a high resolution, the Havoc is ideal for both play and work.
