Dr. DisRespect’s Streaming Setup

WELCOME, SLICK DADDY CLUB.

One of the largest streamers on Twitch, Dr DisRespect needs a high-quality setup to ensure high performance and excellent stream quality. To help him accomplish this, Dr DisRespect uses two PCs for his stream, one for the gameplay and one for the stream broadcast, in order to avoid any bottleneck that streaming and playing on the same PC might create.

Gaming PC

ASUS ROG GT51CA

When it comes to gameplay, there can never be even a single frame between the Doc and his opponents, so he goes all out with an ASUS ROG GT51CA. This monster boasts at i7-6700K that comes liquid cooled and overclocked to 4.2GHz, an insane 64GB of DDR4 RAM, a 1TB HDD paired with two 512GB SSD, and TWO, yes TWO, NVIDIA GeFroce GTX1080 in an SLI configuration. This thing is an absolute menace. You can read the full review over at PC MAG and decide whether it’s enough for you.

Stats:

  • Intel Core i7-6700K Processor 4.2 GHz (4.6 GHz)
  • Liquid Cooling System
  • 64GB DDR4 RAM
  • 2x NVIDIA GeForce GTX1080 SLI
  • 1TB HDD + 2x 512GB SSD

Streaming PC

ASUS ROG Strix GD30

In order to ensure that his stream quality is never compromised by the game he’s playing, Dr. DisRespect uses a separate streaming PC — also a ASUS Republic of Gamers machine — that also runs an Intel Core i7-6700K capable of 4.6GHz when overclocked. This machine utilizes a slightly more reasonable 32GB of DDR4 RAM and a single NVIDIA GeForce GTX1080. You can read more about this desktop  at Guru3d.com

Stats:

  • Intel Core i7-6700K Processor 4.2 GHz (4.6 GHz)
  • 32GB DDR4 2400MHz Ram
  • 1TB HDD + 256GB SSD
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX1080 8GB

 

Monitors

ASUS ROG Swift PG27AQ 27” 4K/UHD IPS G-SYNC Gaming Monitor

If you thought that Gaming PC was insane, just wait until you get a look at this monitor – the ASUS ROG Swift PG27AQ. A modern marvel for sure, the PG27AQ’s 27″ 4K/UHD IPS panel is beautiful, giving The Doc the best possible resolution and clarity needed to take home a Chicken Dinner. It also features G-SYNC technology to assist even further with avoiding screen tearing, though it’s not like there’s much worry about that with 2x GTX 1080. Last but not least, it has a multitude of connectivity options, including DisplayPort 1.2, a single HDMI 1.4, dual USB 3.0 ports, and Audio I/O, so you’ll be set no matter what your setup looks like.

Stats:

  • 27″ 4K/UHD IPS Panel
  • 4ms Response Time
  • NVIDIA G-SYNC technology
  • DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, dual USB 3.0 ports, and Audio I/O
  • Pivotable 90 degrees for vertical use

 

 

ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q 24.5″ Full HD 1080p 1ms 240Hz DP HDMI Eye Care G-SYNC eSports Gaming Monitor

For his secondary monitor, Dr. DisRespect uses the ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q, a 24.5″ 1920×1080 display featuring a 1ms response time and a native 240Hz refresh rate, making it one of the best monitors for competitive gaming on the market. Its frame is slim, almost non-existent, which is more for aesthetics purposes, but always a welcome addition on a crowded gaming desk. The PG259Q utilizes a custom heatsink that’s nearly 2x the size of other gaming monitors which helps to keep down the heat in the room during long gaming or streaming sessions. Finally, it’s able to pivot 90 degrees, allowing for vertical use, which is great for keeping on top of chat and stream statistics.

Stats:

  • 24.5″ 1920×1080 Full HD display
  • 1ms response time
  • Native 240Hz refresh rate
  • Frameless design
  • Custom heatsink for a cooler, quieter room
  • Pivotable stand for vertical use

Webcams + Microphones

 

Logitech C920

Dr. DisRespect uses dual Logitech C920s, which he uses for different scenes within his broadcast. The C920 is capable of Full 1080p HD quality, ensuring that his broadcasts look nice and crisp. 

Stats:

  • Full HD 1080p capture
  • Easily integrated in OBS/XSplit
  • Expandable arms makes for easy adjustment to any setup
  • Long USB cable helps with complicated setups

Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Studio Microphone

The Dr uses an Audio-Technica AT2020 USB Condenser Microphone, a favorite among top gaming streamers. He also utilizes an unknown brand Foam Windscreen Pop Filter, similar to this one from Whisperteknik, and an unknown brand of Microphone arm, similar to this one from Neewer.


Mouse, Keyboard, Gaming Chair, + Others

BenQ ZOWIE ZA11 E-Sports Ambidextrous Optical Gaming Mouse

Sporting a minimal vibe, the BenQ Zowie ZA11 is an ambidextrous (meaning it’s designed for both right and left handed users) mouse developed for both palm and claw grip usage. It features a toggle for DPI adjustment at 400 / 800 / 1600 / 3200 and even allows for the USB refresh rate to be adjusted, presumably the feature that earned it the ‘esports’ title. Overall, it’s a pretty no-frills optical option at a low price point that still brings the heat.

 


Corsair Gaming K70 RGB RAPIDFIRE Mechanical Keyboard, Backlit RGB LED

Keeping in line with his title as world champion of every competitive gaming competition, Dr. DisRespect uses the K70 RAPIDFIRE Mechanical Keyboard from Corsair Gaming. The K70 is Corsair’s fastest mechanical keyboard ever with ultra-fast 1.2mm actuation and requiring only light 45g force to active the keypress. Widely regarded as the best mid-level mechanical keyboard for gaming, the K70 is a great bet and well worth the investment over that crappy Dell keyboard you’ve been using for the last decade.
