Bchillz is an OG Rust streamer who has been maining the game since he got into the closed beta in October 2013. Since then, he has made a name for himself for his preferred PVP/fps style of gameplay, as well as occasionally playing with his subs. Below, we have provided an overview of Bchillz’s gaming setup that he uses to both produce his high-quality video content, as well as to optimize his high-level response time and accuracy.
WHAT MONITOR DOES BCHILLZ USE?
Bchillz uses an Asus VG248QE monitor. The ASUS VG248QE is a 24″ gaming monitor that offers a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz @ 1ms (GtG) and a Full HD resolution of 1920x1080p. Its pixel pitch is at 0.2768 x 0.2768mm, with a brightness of 350 cd/m², and is also embedded with two 2W speakers.
Its stand allows for adjustment options of tilting -5°~15°, swiveling -45°~45° and pivoting 90°. Its height can also be increased up to 11cm (4.33”.) Furthermore, the monitor can be disconnected from its stand for VESA-compatible wall-mounting purposes. It also has other features such as its ASUS GamePlus technology with a hotkey with which to access crosshair (aimpoint) and timer functions as well as other tools to improve the player’s accuracy and overall, in-game performance. It is compatible with Windows 7 or later, macOS, Xbox One and PS4 (although its refresh rate is restricted by the capabilities of the device.)
WHAT MOUSE DOES BCHILLZ USE?
Bchillz uses a BenQ Zowie EC2-A mouse. The BenQ Zowie EC2-B is a plug-and-play gaming mouse that is fitted with a 3360 optical gaming sensor. It offers four preset DPI levels of 400, 800, 1600 and 3200 that can be toggled between with its DPI button located on its underside. It also has an LED indicator light to show which DPI level it is currently on.
This mouse is driverless. Therefore, although it features 7 buttons total, the side buttons can only be set with macros through games that allow for such settings. that can be set with macros within games offer the option. It offers four preset DPI options that cannot be reset and come in two sizes of which Bchillz has opted for the large.
WHAT KEYBOARD DOES BCHILLZ USE?
Bchillz uses a Corsair K70 Rapidfire keyboard. Bchillz gaming setup includes a K70 keyboard that is soldered with linear Cherry MX Speed switches. They have an actuation force of 45g at an actuation point of 1.2mm for a total travel distance of 3.4mm.
It offers full-key rollover and 100% and anti-ghosting capabilities and also has a windows key-lock button, as well as dedicated multimedia controls on its top right corner. It also has flip-out feet with which to angle the keyboard so as to accommodate typing preferences. It also comes with a detachable wrist-rest, as well as an extra set of textured MOBA/FPS keycaps.
WHAT HEADSET DOES BCHILLZ USE?
Bchillz uses a HyperX Cloud II headset. The HyperX Cloud II is a 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound headset that is available in both a wired and wireless version. Bchillz has gone with the wired version. These are closed-backed and feature 53mm neodymium drivers that provide a frequency response range of 15 – 25,000Hz at an impedance of 60Ω and a sensitivity of 98±3dB.
It is constructed from solid aluminum and comes with two sets of interchangeable memory foam ear pads. One is covered in a leatherette fabric. While the other is covered in velour. The headband is adjustable and is also cushioned with leatherette padding. It is compatible with PC, Mac, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and mobile devices.
It also comes with a detachable noise-canceling condenser microphone. This offers a wider-than-usual frequency response range of 50-18,000Hz that operates at a nominal impedance of 2.2kΩ and a sensitivity of -39±3dB.
WHAT MICROPHONE DOES BCHILLZ USE?
Bchillz uses an Audio-Technica AT2020 XLR microphone. The AT2020 is a condenser microphone that is constructed from metal. It has a unidirectional polar pattern that registers with a side address. The XLR version produces a crisper output with less interference than the USB version and also allows for more flexibility when editing. It offers a frequency response range of 20-20,000Hz at a nominal impedance of 100Ω and a sensitivity of -37dB.
It’s important to note that it runs on 48V phantom power, so it will require the investment of a compatible mixer and XLR cable in order for it to register on the recording device.
WHAT WEBCAM DOES BCHILLZ USE?
Bchillz uses a Logitech C920 webcam. The Logitech C920 is among the more popular basic webcams, so it is unsurprising that it appears in Bchillz’s gaming setup. It has a plug-and-play design that is compatible with Windows 7+, Mac OS 10.10+, Chrome OS, and Android v 5.0+ (32-bit/64-bit) devices. It easily clips onto flat monitors and has a 3mp optical sensor that is capable of recording at a resolution of 1920 x 1080p at either 720 or 1080p @ 30fps. It also has a 78° field of view.
WHAT MIXER DOES BCHILLZ USE?
Bchillz uses a PreSonus AudioBox 22VSL mixer. The Presonus AudioBox 22VSL is a solidly constructed steel preamp that is designed for solo recordings. It is capable of inputting either one XLR or one ¼” microphone jack and provides 48V of phantom power with the push of a button. It can also input one instrument, such as a keyboard or guitar, simultaneously. It has controls for main-output level, headphone control, mixer control, and a -80dB gain control. It also comes with PreSonus Studio One® 3 Artist DAW software that is compatible with both Macs and CPCs. It can be connected to these devices with a USB cable, which is also how it is powered.
