How to change mouse to 1000hz polling rate. HELP!

Hi, i just spent 2 hours looking into this and I cant find one helpful article / program.

I have this mouse:

https://www.amazon.ca/iKross-Precision-Optical-Gaming-Mouse/dp/B011M2U2NY

Its stuck on a 125hz polling rate

Ikross doesnt even have a website to download software off. Is this mouse even compatible with a high polling rate? I want to change my DPI / polling rate. Can someone please help me as this is limiting my ability to play csgo. Thanks.

  1. First off, DPI and polling rate are two different things.

    By default, you can change the DPI by pressing the 6th button (located below scroll wheel) with steps of 600/1000/1600 DPI, unless you rebound the 6th button within game settings. If you did that, then you need to go to the mouse settings (under control panel) and increase the cursor speed to get higher DPI.

    As far as polling rate goes, a dedicated software is required to change that. Without that, you can't change the polling rate.
    Did some digging and found a 3rd party mouse customization software that you can try. You can download it from here, in post #617,

    Do read the readme file within the zip file in order to know how to operate that software.

    If that doesn't work, buy a proper gaming mouse that has it's own software for customization.
    For example, i'm using Corsair Sabre RGB with my Skylake build and i can customize my mouse by using Corsair CUE software. Sabre RGB can do up to 10.000 DPI. Though, i'm usually using 3000 DPI and depending on a game, i'm also using either 6000 DPI or 1500 DPI. On some rare instances, i'm also using 400 DPI which is nicknamed by Corsair as "Sniper mode". All DPI changes are made using 3 buttons on the mouse with dedicated button for "Sniper mode". Also, Sabre RGB can operate with polling rates of 125 Hz, 250 Hz, 500 Hz and 1000 Hz. I'm using 1000 Hz all the time for minimal input lag (1ms). Oh, Sabre RGB also has 4 dedicated full RGB LED zones for additional eyecandy, all controllable from Corsair CUE.
    So, if you're interested in getting a proper gaming mouse and not some "budget" mouse, give a look at Corsair Sabre RGB,
