5 Fun Ways To Use Your OLED Display

Why would you have a display on your gaming gear? The real question is, why would you NOT? SteelSeries OLED screens look cool but they can also save you time, enhance your experience, and even save your LIFE (in-game).

The following SteelSeries products feature OLED:

Here are 5 unique and helpful ways to use SteelSeries OLED displays:

#1: In-Game HUD

Your SteelSeries Engine features integration for a number of games including CS:GO, Dota 2, Mortal Kombat 11, Minecraft, and more. View stats at a glance such as KDA, money, health, and a ton of other options for you to customize.

You can even go so far as to create custom OLED messages for in-game events such as custom text or even GIFs. I set this up for headshots in CS:GO:

...I don't see it a lot.

#2: Discord Integration

If you love Discord but also have adult responsibilities that prevent you from staring at it all day, try the Discord GameSense app in the SteelSeries Engine. In addition to customizable RGB lighting effects, this app lets you see who's talking, direct messages, and other helpful info so you don't miss a thing.

#3: Music Track Info

Music fans rejoice! Now you can view a track name, artist, album, and duration of the song without having to tab between your computer screen and Tidal.

#4: Settings Control

Each OLED screen is your own integrated command center, displaying useful information for adjusting settings, changing profiles, and seeing on-the-fly updates. Avoid tabbing out of what you're doing, and instead let your keyboard, headset, or mouse show you the important details.

#5: Never Gonna GIF You Up

...and of course, our favorite part of any OLED is making it our own. To add your own GIF follow these steps:

  1. Open the SteelSeries Engine
  2. Select the gear you want to edit
  3. Open the OLED & Settings tab
  4. On the left side, select EDIT under "Edit OLED Image"
  5. Select "Upload From File"
  6. Click DONE.
  7. When the window closes, hit SAVE.
  8. Show it off!

NOTA: Custom GIFs are not available for GAMEDAC or Arctis Pro OLED screens.

Here are some GIFs and fun images to get you started.

HINT: GIFs for the Rival 700 mouse work on current OLED devices as well. Right click on the image to save it. You can also create your own, if you are so talented.
