Microsoft intellimouse 3.0 frankenmouse

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I wish to know If it is possible to change the ie3 sensor for a better and more modern sensor.
Thinking like a ie3 with Avago 3090 sensor or Avago 3310.
Is it possible to make this mod?

Yes im aware of alcor from coolermaster but the mouse is smaller in size compared to ie3.
I Want a real ie3 with better internals.

The Zowie EC1 evo maybe? The sahpe is almost the same, it's a little bit rounder and fuller. Other from the feel in mouse 1&2 I think the zowie is better in everyway.

I have seen WMOadders and 1.1adders. Deathadder 3G sensor in WMO and IO 1.1. Don't think I've seen a 3.0adder though.

No, just...no.

Intellisensor is one of the best, even though it's low DPI, its still an amazing sensor. dont change it out for modern crap.

Yes, the intellimouse sensor is very good, I feel that it's mostly the good response and low lod. But the 125hz pollingrate is not fun, neither is low dpi on todays high-res monitors.

It's really the PCS and the low polling rate that keep me from ever considering using a WMO ever again.

I wonder how 450dpi is on a fullhd monitor.
On the goodside i've heard that is possible to overclock the polling rate to 1000hz.
I wish to know from users of ie3 how is to use them on fullhd resolutions and If they encounter any issues on that Res.

You can't overclock it if you are running windows 8 or 8.1, but in 7 and XP it's possible. 450dpi works on 1920x1080, a large mousepad is recommended.

For me, the DPI is just too damn low on a 1920x1200 screen, otherwise I would be using that mouse now, I love its shape. It's one thing to praise the sensor, but if it's not practical on a modern system, then its quality almost doesn't matter.

I use an IE3.0 no problem with 2560x1440:

I feel that a low sensitivity user is already accustomed to swiping their hand large distances so it feels right at home.
