Deimos 1615S Software Setup

The Mythlogic Deimos 1615S is completely free of bloatware. Windows 10 Home 64-bit is clean and ready for action right out of the box, with only a few related utilities installed. One of those is for the Creative Sound Blaster X-FI MB5. Killer also has a handy utility, and a keyboard app gives you plenty of options, both for gaming and for customizing its look.

Killer Network Manager puts most of your connectivity settings in one place and gives you easy access to usage statistics. You can see which applications are producing the most traffic on your network or check a real-time graph of bandwidth usage. The software also has a Wireless Signal Strength chart (also real-time) that will come in handy when troubleshooting spotty networks.

Another of the pre-installed utilities lets you customize the laptop’s keyboard and has a Statistics tab that can give you some insight into the keys you press most frequently. Hit the record button, play your favorite game, and come back to the tab to see if you need to change the key position of the commands you use the most.

You can also adjust the color of the backlight with the software. The entire keyboard is one color by default, but you can break the keyboard into sections that have different lighting. You can also choose a different color for the light bar at the front, which (aside from the Mythlogic logo) is one of the few accents on the system.
