Reviewing a new release has always been a dream of ours, and while we’re a few months behind, we have had the opportunity to review the Cooler Master MM710. In this article, we’re going to take a closer look at it, do an unboxing, and review it.
On the front of the box are the usual details, the lightweight feature of the mouse with a feather just to let us know how light it is compared to other gaming mice on the market. The featured image shows just how beautiful this mouse is. It also shows the 20million lifetime clicks as well as and the 16000DPI.
On the back of the box are other features, like the honeycomb design for the actual mouse, also the ultra weave cable that is fitted. These details we will go through a bit more later on in this article.
Opening the box has the mouse covered with the PolyUrethane in a well-fitted box. Inside the box is the, of course, the mouse, then the warranty and user manual, and extra PTFE Feet for the mouse. It is boxed appealingly and looks fantastic. Opening this box was a lot of fun!

Breaking this all down, the design of it is something that stands out. The design is appealing, in our opinion. The honeycomb shape has a purpose, helping to bring the total weight of this mouse down to 53grams! The ABS Plastics used is of high quality, which also helped in bringing the weight of the Cooler Master MM710 down. There are concerns with the honeycomb design, “What happens if you sweat a lot?” “What happens if I spill drinks over it?” well it splash resistant, and cleaning the mouse is relatively simple, so there is no need to worry about that. However, if you do sweat so much that you worry about damaging your mouse, we recommend seeing a doctor.
The Cooler Master mouse is a six-button mouse, and it is ambidextrous, however, it favors the right-handed person, as you can see by the two side macro buttons. The DPI can be adjusted with the button just about the mouse wheel, or you can download software to adjust the DPI to what you would prefer.
The cable is a fixed ultra weave. The cable is thick, so sturdy, and has a premium feel. When moving the cable (which can be seen in the video), the mouse doesn’t move much. This, in turn, means when using the Cooler Master MM710, there is little need for cable bungee unless your cable is hanging down on the ground. We found that the cable is so well built that you didn’t even feel it while gaming.
The mouse connector is USB-3 and is gold plated. This Polling rate is 1000MHz, which is quite fast. The actual feel of the mouse feels well build and sturdy. However, I wasn’t a fan of the macros buttons as the clicking noise is quite loud and sounded a bit cheap. Having the Cooler Master MM710 installed with PTFE ensures a long lifespan; however, we were amazed – in the right way – to see a spare set in the box. This is one way Cooler Master is looking after those who purchase the MM710.
Gaming with the MM710:
I decided to play Counter-Strick: Global Offense for the benchmark game. I used the MM710 for about three weeks, and while I was not too fond of the mouse in the beginning, but it started growing on me. In the first week, I struggled to control the mouse, especially during those flick-shots; however, once I became attuned to the lightweight of the mouse, controlling it became a lot easier.
The Cooler Master MM710 is marketed for FPS gamers, especially those who use Snipers or Rifles. Being so light, the MM710 is ideal to do those flick-shots. During my testing, I noticed that to be the case. Using the AWP in CS:GO was where I saw the MM710 come alive. The quick movements were on point, and Cooler Master is definitely onto something with this MM710.
So using the mouse was a change for me. I went from a heavier mouse to a lighter mouse, and it felt like I had fatigue in my shoulder during the first week. The transition was a bit difficult; however, after the first week, I was used to the new mouse and using it was a real pleasure. I went from not liking it to liking it.
The mouse is marketed for FPS gamers (it’s not to say that those who play RPG, MOBA, RTS, or MMORPG won’t enjoy it. However, there might be some features lacking in this mouse for those types of games), and even more so to snipers and riflers. So if you fall into one, or all, of those categories, then this mouse is for you.
In terms of rating the mouse, we took into account weight, design, the market it’s aimed for, and then the cost of the mouse. The Cooler Master MM710 retails online for about R750-00, and that is decently priced, especially when you look at what you get. So, with the review, and the costing in mind, we gave this mouse an 8/10, and gosh darn, we loved it.
Massive thanks to Cooler Master for sending us the MM710; we had so much fun reviewing and recording the review for this mouse. If you have the MM710, drop a comment below and let us know how you find using it, we look forward to hearing from you.
