Software
To take full advantage of the SteelSeries Rival 600, you must first install the SteelSeries Engine 3 software suite, used to customise any attached SteelSeries peripherals.

The default landing page shows all connected devices, both past and present, along with any saved profiles. You can quickly choose stored profiles on the right hand side, using the drop down box.



Engine Apps is still in beta, however it feels perfectly stable and works incredibly well. This section allows programs to connect with the RGB lighting within the Rival 600, either allowing your entire SteelSeries system to sync up through the PrismSync Engine or letting games like CSGO or DOTA2 tap into the lighting and provide visual feedback to on-screen events. The possibilities are almost endless.



The Library tab recognises when a game or program is launched and can configure the mouse, or any other SteelSeries device, to assign a specific profile.



Getting onto the settings of the mouse, the SteelSeries Rival 600 is configured from a single page, with all of the options laid out clearly. Sensitivity, lift off distance, polling rate and acceleration are the options given, as well as being able to configure any of the buttons on the mouse.



The final piece to the software is the illumination page, giving the user full control over all 8 RGB LEDs in the mouse the scroll wheel and SteelSeries logo, as well as 3 LEDs on each side.
