ARCTIC also creates peripherals. The ARCTIC K381 is a low-profile keyboard with low resistance switches, available in black or white. It features keys for volume control and standby, as well as twelve office function keys. It's available in six language versions.
ARCTIC creates three wireless mice, ARCTIC M361, ARCTIC M362, and ARCTIC M371. All three feature 2.4GHz wireless with a USB nano receiver that can connect from up to 10 meters. They also feature back and forward thumb buttons and adjustable sensitivity from 600 dpi, 1,000 dpi, and 1,600 dpi. The scroll wheel on the M362 tilts left and right for side scrolling.
If wired mice are more your style, ARCTIC has two optical mice, the ARCTIC M111 and ARCTIC M121. Both have a right hand design and feature anti-slip rubber coating buttons and a 1.8m cable. The M111 is 800 dpi, while the M121 is 800 dpi or 1000 dpi. Despite what is seen in the photo below, I actually think the M111 is the one on the right, while the M121 is the one on the left - at least, that's what it is according to the product catalog.
Wireless mice and optical mice aren't good enough for gamers, so ARCTIC has you covered there with its gaming mice, ARCTIC M551 and ARCTIC M571. Both feature a laser engine with adjustable sensitivity from 800 dpi, 1,600 dpi, and 2,400 dpi, and back and forward thumb buttons. The ARCTIC M571 also features customizable weights (up to 26 grams) and a "double-bullet and continuous shooting button."
ARCTIC also creates a power supply and case. The Fusion 550 Series is available in both a 200-240V version (for the EU) and a 100-240V version (for the US). They are 80 Plus certified, providing 82-86% efficiency, and obviously supply 550 Watts. They feature an 80mm ARCTIC F8 Pro fan with speeds ranging from 700 to 2,000 RPM, and has over-power, over-current, over-voltage, and short circuit protection. For a case, there's the Silentium T11, available in black or white. There are two 120mm TC fans included, four external 5.25" drive bays, one internal 3.5" drive bay, and enough room to fit a video card up to 14" in length. ARCTIC also includes a 3.5" to 5.25" adapter to allow you to add a second hard drive.
ARCTIC had many of the aforementioned products together in a demo system. The system featured an Intel Core i7-920 processor overclocked to 3.66GHz (from 2.66GHz), a Sapphire HD 5970 2GB GDDR5 PCIE graphics card, and G.SKILL DDR3-1600 overclocked to 1800MHz with the FSB at 900MHz. All of this was put into a Silentium T11 and powered by a Fusion 550RF. For cooling, ARCTIC used a Freezer XTREME Pro CPU cooler, Accelero XTREME 5970 VGA cooler, ARCTIC HC01-TC hard disk cooler, and ARCTIC RC RAM cooler with the RC Turbo Module. I've included a larger-than-usual photo of the demo results so you can see all the temperatures clearly.
