Leetgion El’Druin gaming mouse revealed

Here are some of the first images of Leetgion’s second gaming mouse, the El’Druin.

While its first mouse, the Hellion, is optimized for StarCraft II, the El’Durin is designed for Diablo III. Still in its CGI form, the El’Durin is an ambidextrous-looking mouse that has twelve programmable hotkeys including a 5-directional thumb S-pad (for quick actions). Its main two buttons are backed by Japanese Omron switches.

Under the hood is an Avago 9500 laser sensor with a tracking resolution of 5,000 DPI. This sensor is backed by Leetgion’s patented DPI micro-tuner that allows users to adjust the tracking resolution at extremely fine steps. The mouse includes four custom profile sets including a default profile. For ergonomics there are four removable palm plates. The El’Durin measures 126 x 80 x 44 mm (LxWxH).

Silverstone release PS07 White PC Case


As the first chassis in the Precision series designed for Micro ATX motherboards, the PS07 has a great balance between size and functionality. It utilizes SilverStone’s vaulted positive pressure design with easily removable filters on both the fans and the power supply to prevent dust buildup. Two front mounted 120mm fans can provide capable cooling for a complete build fully loaded with drives and components. To keep the noise profile low, an independent compartment with isolated intake vent for the power supply was implemented to keep PSU operating at optimal temperature.

User-friendly touches such as removable motherboard tray and top lid make installation in such small chassis a breeze. But an all new backside cable routing design further increases PS07’s ergonomics with room for long power supply cables; thus eliminates the need for short cable kits such as SilverStone’s PP05 and allow users to use any power supplies they wish. For those interested in storage flexibility, PS07’s ability to accommodate one 2.5” and six 3.5” hard drives are greatly appreciated as well. Using an elegant front panel combined with aluminum accent makes PS07 at home in any environment with a clean, hidden side intake helping to minimize and direct noise away from users. If there is a need for a relatively small, understated, quiet, and advanced PC, the PS07 is a perfect choice.

Special Features:

  • Dual 120mm silent fan
  • Removable motherboard tray and top panel
  • Quick access filters to prevent dust buildup
  • Convenient wire and cable routing pathways
  • Adjustable holder for large CPU coolers and extra-long card support rack
  • Motherboard back plate opening for quick CPU cooler assembly
  • Independent airflow channel for power supply
  • Accommodate up to six 3.5 inch hard drives
