EVGA TORQ X10 Gaming Mouse

EVGA is currently on the move to release its own branded peripherals and we’re taking a look at one of their new mice that’s hoping to make a splash in a crowded pond. The TORQ X10 and TORQ X10 Carbon stray away from the video cards EVGA is most well-known for though their motherboards and power supplies are an indicator that they can do just fine outside of their usual space. We’ve got the TORQ X10 which also comes in the Carbon variant that utilizes a carbon fiber surface on parts of the mouse.EVGA TORQ X10 Gaming Mouse

The TORQ X10 comes a funny looking packaging with triangular sides, but it’s probably going to look much better on the store shelf. What’s clear from that presentation is that this is an ambidextrous mouse with thumb buttons set up on both sides. The TORQ X10 also features and adjustable height, a laser sensor capable of tracking up to 8200 DPI, up to nine programmable buttons, on-board profile storage, customizable weight, and RGB LED lights. This mouse is backed by EVGA’s 3-year warranty which is very generous as far as gaming mice go. The TORQ X10 can be pre-ordered from Newegg at a half-off discounted price of $49.99 with $1.99 shipping and the TORQ X10 Carbon can also be pre-ordered at its discounted price of $79.99 with $1.99 shipping. These preorder specials only last for a limited time and end on June 27th.

    Btw Sorry by the way I worded cost difference I forgot everyone’s budget and lifestyle etc etc etc is different so pardon that. Just to me its a small diff. Compared to that crap Razor Oroborias (sp) had it a week and hated the dang thing and it cost what around $130+?

    I forgot but the battery power was horrible and it had sharp edges and felt like a $30 dollar mouse. So refunded that POS. Its so hard to find a left handed wireless gaming mouse. Even tho I hardly game (My day job is a Police officer but I build high powered rigs for a hobby) as gaming mice last longer so I went with this even tho its corded but with the wrap around the cord and the weights etc it does not have that wire push back when you let the mouse go if I you understand what I mean.

    Pardon the long comment have a safe and happy holidays everyone!

    I just stumbled on this as I got a few of these and your review has a few inaccuracy’s 1st off it’s NOT carbon fiber film, its actual carbon fiber panels and the cord is sliver wire etc and not copper. I know none of this is anything useful. The only diff between the really small cost diff between the 2 x10′s is the carbon just has better materials that’s all.

    But the mouse run the same. Tho have to say the carbon fiber texture feels great in the hands and looks great. Ask anyone how has the carbon. Oh and my cousin works for EVGA hence all my input devices, PSU’s and GPU’s etc are all from EVGA. As I get a discount thur her. hehe.

    Here is a rep with the actual spec’s of the mouse.

  • Anono

    I’m sorry, but that’s one ugly mouse! Good, but ugly!

      I have the mouse and it actually looks better in person. Especially the led lights. It has a more sports/car feel with the somewhat angular shape and “meshed” top. Not sure if I can link but I have a review at overclock.net under the EVGA Torq X10 thread.

    • David Yee

      I never did comment on the appearance anyways.

      • Phil H

        Appearance I think is subjective. It looks better in person and I like how it feels in my hand (except the right side buttons). The height really isn”t gimmicky at all. It lets you switch grip styles. (Cant say that about the weight system though). I think EVGA has a really solid offering right here.

        Edit: The wheel could be slightly less stiff and ti would be perfect. But I kinda like it at the same time since it means you wont accidentally turn it too much.
