Unlike standard or FPS-focused mice, those designed for MMOs and MOBAs tend to feature a multitude of buttons. Corsair’s Scimitar Pro RGB, for example—one of the top picks in our ‘Best Mice of 2019’ feature—has 12.

Cooler Master’s MM830 is a little different. Rather than being packed with buttons on the left side, it features a built-in D-pad. In addition to the added functionality, this also gives users a solid thumb grip, according to the company.

The 162g MM830 has eight programmable buttons, including those on the D-pad, which isn’t as many as the Scimitar or Razer’s Naga Trinity, and may not be considered enough by some MMO/MOBA aficionados. What it does have, however, is a 96 x 64 OLED display that can be customized to show graphics or DPI settings.

The MM830 features an Avago PMW3360 optical sensor, a DPI range of 100-24,000, Omron switches that are good for 20 million clicks, and a durable PBT chassis, which, according to Cooler Master, “minimizes wear and tear due to sweat, sun, and Cheetos dust." It also comes with dynamic four zone RGB lighting

The MM830 is available from retailers now, starting from $79.99

How do you guys hold your mouse without constantly activating the buttons where the thumb is? I also have a big thumb, which severely limits my selection of mice. There are several I would have purchased otherwise.

I came to see a mini display showing mouse frequency, gaming profile and other smart info. That aint what I was hoping to see.

Cooler Master just needs to make an update to their inferno mouse. It was a low cost MMO mouse with plenty of well positioned buttons. Give it an optical sensor, a ring finger rest and move the center of gravity to the center instead of the back and you've got a winner.

lol! I guess that is why people mostly suck at FPS games? Strategy lacks as well. Anyway, I move my mouse very quickly while playing. When gaming gets intense I grip the mouse harder by instinct such as you would in any sport. As I work out, play sports and lift weights, I would say my grip is stronger than most as well.
