Steelseries Sensei and OS sensitivity

This isn't really about gaming, but I thought this would be the best place to ask.

I just bought a Steelseries Sensei mouse, which I think is really nice so far and honestly quite a pleasant experience after using a Mighty Mouse for so long, but I don't know how to get a "neutral" mouse sensitivity setting in Mac OS.

I use Windows 7 under Bootcamp for gaming purposes, and have the sensitivity there set to neutral (6/11 in the pointer sensitivity options in control panel), so that I know when I change my actual mouse DPI to 1600, I'm getting 1600 DPI.

However, I don't know how to achieve this same neutral setting in Mac OS (10.6.8); if I use the same mouse DPI setting under Windows and Mac OS, the speed is noticeably different.
I've searched for answers using that google site thing, but mostly find solutions to solving mouse acceleration, which I've already dealt with and am not that bothered about as I don't really intend to use the mouse for any gaming outside of Windows, I'd just like the sensitivity to be consistent when I switch operating system!

Could anyone help me out?

Cheers.

Hello man, thanks, I'll try that. Will it have any effect on the use of the Steelseries Engine software?
