STEELSERIES Rival 500 Gaming Mouse Review

Introduction Please don’t hate me, but I’m going to mention the fact of how many gaming mice there are right now. With that out of the way, there are so many gaming mice around right now, it’s getting real hard to do something that is truly innovative in the market right now. That’s where the Rival 500 comes into play. They’ve redesigned the thumb area on this mouse to do something that is quite unique for the industry and while some of their designs are already unique, STEELSERIES could really be on to something for MMO/RPG gamers. We’ll take a closer look at the mouse shortly, but here’s a quick refresher course on the core values of STEELSERIES. WE ARE GAMING SteelSeries has fueled the gaming industry by creating innovative new products, designed specifically for eSports and passionate gamers everywhere. RELENTLESS INNOVATION Here at SteelSeries, we are obsessed with “firsts”. Dating back to 2001, our company was formed to meet the surface needs of hardcore gamers by introducing the first glass mousepad, the Icemat.

STEELSERIES Launches Arctis Headset Line

You’ve been seeing a lot of STEELSERIES around the site lately. They were a company I hadn’t heard much about, but I’ve certainly grown to appreciate what they offer, especially since their Engine software works so brilliantly. Yesterday, they announced a new line of headsets that have several new features, but one detail really stood out to me. I’ve noticed that mid-range headsets seem to vary from sounding great, to sounding mostly good. The difference between the two categories is that stereo analog sets usually sound awesome, but as they begin upgrading to 7.1 surround, they begin losing some of that quality in music and movies. Even though the price points are really close, the audio is surprisingly different. The Arctis Headset line is going to have the same driver that’s used in the $300 high-range products. If this works out, STEELSERIES could really set themselves apart in the mid-range, but we’ll only know if we can get our ears in them first. Check out the full press release below for more details! SteelSeries Launches Arctis Headset Line – Challenges Gaming Audio Stereotypes  New family of revolutionary headsets deliver flagship-level comfort, microphone and sound as a standard across entire line     CHICAGO – October 4, 2016 – SteelSeries, leader and innovator in gaming peripherals, unveils the Arctis line, a selection of three gaming headsets that shatter preconceived notions of what a gaming headset should so...



September News Round Up: Zen, Kaby Lake, GTX 1050 and More

How does a freelance writer keep up with everything happening in the industry when he has a full time job, a family, reviews to keep up with and a puppy in training? It’s worth pointing out that a lot has happened in the month of September this year. AMD has been making announcements about Zen, INTEL has had some details about Kaby Lake and NVIDIA is talking about the GTX 1050. Rather than try to keep up with every piece of news as it releases, we’re going to try something new by having a once a month update to catch you up on the things that are happening in the industry. Welcome to the PureOC Monthly News! On the last Friday of each month, we’ll pull together all the news that feels relevant and give a one stop location to get your info from. So without further ado, let’s get into what’s happened this month. CPUs, Motherboards and Chipsets  AMD Zen, Grey Hawk, X370 Chipset and A12-9800 We’ll start with AMD this time around since much of the anticipation of what will happen in the CPU sector relies on them. We got some more detailed shots of the new Zen chip and the 1331 pin design is confirmed. As far as new info is concerned though, we didn’t get much this month for that. The A12-9800 on the other hand had some very interesting leaks. Some performance scores showed up and even though the new AM4 chip is still using Steamroller cores, it has some reasonable improvements. What was really interesting was an overclocking result. So...



STEELSERIES Siberia 350 Gaming Headset Review

Introduction We’re bringing STEELSERIES back to the forefront again, but this time we have a headset to review instead of a mouse and keyboard combo. Even though this company is new to PureOC, they impressed us with some excellent quality and exceptional software. However, sound is a completely different playing field compared to input peripherals. The Siberia 350 has a lot of competition to stand up against so we better take a long hard look at how it does in person. We’ll get right into it soon, after a quick word from the manufacturer. WE ARE GAMING SteelSeries has fueled the gaming industry by creating innovative new products, designed specifically for eSports and passionate gamers everywhere.

STEELSERIES Rival 700 Mouse and Apex M500 Keyboard Review

Introduction I have no way to describe just how many mouse and keyboard options there are in the world today. I’m not talking about all of them either. I’m just talking about “gaming” mice and keyboards. The options have gone through the roof and all you have to do is try a quick Amazon search and you’ll have enough mice to send the black death sweeping through Europe again! Needless to say, the eSports phenomenon has had a huge part in bringing many a design from many a company. Today, we’re going to look at a new company for PureOC by reviewing a mouse and keyboard from SteelSeries. Do they have what it takes to stand out? We’ll dive into that further, but I can say that their social media presence and website appearance are already off to a good start. Let’s look at a quick word from their site so we can get a feel for what motivates their product designs.

STEELSERIES Releases the Rival 700, First Modular Mouse

Remember when a mouse was just a mouse? Pepperidge Farm remembers! To be far, Pepperidge farm still thinks a mouse is a furry rodent in a barn. STEELSERIES has been known for their high-end peripherals so being the first to introduce a modular mouse is no surprise. What is a surprising is how far the mouse has come from it’s humble beginnings of track and ball. With an OLED display to notify you of in-game events and a modular design that puts a new spin on customization, the Rival 700 certainly takes gaming mice to a new level. I can’t say that I would ever look at my mouse enough to see the notifications, but if I can put a fun design on that screen, that would make me pretty happy. Customization always seems like a good thing though and the RGB lighting is always welcome in my book. Take a look at the details below and check out our forums to tell us what you think of the features in the Rival 700!
