Try forcing it to 500hz, using the hidusbf guide from ngohq (google windows 7 Mouse hertz guide ngohq, itll be there tongue.gif)

When i had mine it was a bit unstable aswell, but forcing it, it was solid as solid can be

When you force a USB poll rate, it does it for all USB ports right? What effect does that have on things like the keyboard/random other crap you have plugged in? Does it make system resource use skyrocket since you now have multiple devices running large poll rates?

How does this affect boards with USB3.0 ports? They drain the system of much more bandwidth than a USB2. If all those things are running at 500-1000hz, what are the side effects?

I don't know if it forces the polling rate for all USB devices (though I guess yes), and I don't know about system resources, or USB 3.0 ports. What I do know is that one time I forced a polling rate of 1000 Hz with hidusbf, and very shortly afterward (less than an hour), the graphics card (9800GT, stock clocks) started artifacting heavily. Reboot didn't help, it was artifacting during the boot screens, and it needed to be replaced. From then I have not forced such high polling rates anymore, with hardware not designed to handle it.

You can filter it on the mouse port only, it is for USB 2.0 only though.

Ive never heard of such an issue, maybe you broke something else while you were doing it?, been forcing polling rates for well over 8 years now or so, never had any issues with it breaking anything (keep in mind, i forced polling rates on mice for a small netcafe with 30~ comps aswell, none of them had issues because of it)

Thanks, I didn't know you could filter it on the mouse port only. Or that it was for USB 2.0 only.

Thats possible, I was quite inexperienced with anything to do with computer hardware back then.. I guess its possible I shorted the graphics card by not grounding myself before installing it or something like that. Thanks for sharing your experience, it does now seem unlikely that the usb polling rate would affect the graphics card.. smile.gif

I belive the filtering works on usb 1.1a/2.0, and not 3.0, because the entire program dosent work with 3.0 smile.gif
