Cooler Master Storm Octane LED Gaming Combo Review (SGB-3020-KKMF1)

The Cooler Master Storm Octane is a modified version of their Devastator Gaming Gear Combo with seven LED backlight colors and features a breathing effect we’ve seen in similar products costing much more. This kit includes a 19-key Anti-Ghosting keyboard and a mouse that can simultaneously switch between colors with one button push. Cooler Master Gaming Gear represents one of the best values in gaming peripherals, and traditionally keeps the cost of their equipment down, drawing a large crowd of budget conscious gamers. Spotted on NewEgg for $59.99 (with a $10 Rebate card if you hurry), the value represented by the Octane Combo is unparalleled.

Cooler Master Storm Octane LED Combo


“Cooler Master was founded to provide the best thermal solutions to our customers worldwide. Since its establishment over two decades ago, we continue to invest in product development in order to provide the leading-edge innovations to people and businesses. Cooler Master’s enclosure technology line-up includes heat sinks and fans, chassis, power supplies, function panels and accessories.”


Well packaged, the Cooler Master CMStorm Octane Gaming Combo comes with the MB70 keyboard and matching MS 35 mouse, and while it looks like a sparse bundle, remember the paltry price of $59.99.  You will be hard pressed to beat the price for a couple of 10 million click cycle peripherals from any company other than Cooler Master.

Undervolting the RTX 3080 and the RTX3090

What if you could find a way to lower both the temperature and the power consumption of your new GPU while still getting almost the same performance? Well, there is. It is called undervolting. Since the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 came out there has been a lot of talk about undervolting them to get better thermals while still getting kick-ass performance and of course I decided I wanted to try it out myself. In the following pages you can both read on how to do it yourself but also get an idea how it will affect both the performance but also the thermals (and noise level).
