    Yeah, I used my first revision 518 (got it at some point in 2005) up until a few months ago until the scroll wheel became a little too floaty for my liking.

    I understand, I've had mine for a while and it's working fine.

    But statistically speaking you're not going to see 100% of MX518's be immune to breaking lol. Eventually something has to give way after enough years of use (whether it be less responsive clicking or scroll wheel losing it's traction).

    It's a durable mouse going by the law of averages, that is all.

    lol yeah seriously.

    I used to take short minimal breaks during gaming, now I try to take longer ones and only use the headphones if I must, speakers are dominant, but still, for one's own health, taking numerous breaks will just make you feel better. Get up, talk to people, go outside, pet a dog, cook some food, brew some coffee, just something, the weight will suddenly disappear. :P

    Meanwhile I don't understand how a Logitech mouse lasts 7 years when every Logitech mouse I've owned died within 16 months. -_-

    I had an MX518...lasted me for YEARS. I had to give it up because it was getting a bit crusty, similar to the pic above.

    There are two kinds of Logitech mice. First there is the sturdy MX518 that represents everything that is right with logitech's mouse making department (). And then we have every other mouse ever made, whos name elude me because they are not particularly noteworthy.

    My logitech G7 is also lasting 7 years, just saying :P Altho sometimes my scroll wheel acts up -.- which seems totally random

    Alright guys and gals, we're starting to drift off-topic, if you want to discuss the tank of a mouse that was the MX518, take it to the chat thread!

    I kind of can and kind of can't. Waiting for some stuff from mdpc-x.com, mostly for screwing the rads into place in the case.

    Is it mounted on something or just standing on the fittings? :P

    It's got grips holding it to the case, but I don't especially trust their grip as far as vertical movement go. So it's "sitting" on the fittings, which directly connect to the pump within the box at the bottom.

    You have no idea.

    I used to Skype with him all the time. That was many many months ago. I was driven nuts by how often he'd be like, "well I also love this case! And this case! And how about these fans? This RAM? That motherboard!"

    It was like, holy shit, even I have a limit for PC hardware? Drunken found it. XD
