CohhCarnage is one of the old school streamers, having been around since April 2013. Even since the early days, he established himself as a family-friendly, community-focused variety streamer, and really made name for himself by starting a consecutive-day challenge which came to an end after 2,000 days of streaming for at least half an hour every day on April 6, 2019.
Even though most of his equipment has been sponsored by either Razer of Corsair, with an average viewership that exceeds 15,000 viewers, there’s little doubt that CohhCarnage earns more than enough to be able to refuse to work with a company whose products he didn’t approve of, even if his channel wasn’t as quality and community focused as his is. Therefore, we have nonetheless compiled a list of the peripherals that CohhCarnage uses in his gaming setup.
WHAT MONITOR DOES COHHCARNAGE USE?
CohhCarnage uses an ASUS VG248QE 24-inch monitor. The ASUS VG248QE gaming monitor is a 24-inch monitor that offers a 144hz refresh rate with a 1ms gray to gray response time for a screen resolution of up to 1920 x 1080p. It integrates NVIDIA 3D LightBoost technology in order to enhance the realism of the images produced by increasing the brightness of the LED backlighting to 350 cd/m². It further improves the image quality by means of its 80,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio. There are also three skin tone mode options.
It’s stand allows for height adjustment 40.64cm – 51.44 cm (16 to 20¼”), rotation of 90°, viewing angles of 170°(H)/160°(V) and a tilt of between +15° to -5°. It also has VESA wall mounting capabilities.
WHAT MOUSE DOES COHHCARNAGE USE?
CohhCarnage uses both a Razer DeathAdder and a Razer Naga Trinity mouse. CohhCarnage alternates between these two gaming mice. The Razer Deathadder Chroma is a fairly typical gaming mouse. It has a dpi range of 100 – 10,000 and three polling rate options of 125Hz (8ms), 500Hz (2ms) or 1000Hz (1ms) and movement tracking speeds of up to 508cm (200”) p/s. It is a right-handed ergonomic mouse that has two macro buttons on the right-thumb side above the rubberized grip, but no dpi button below the scroll wheel.
The major draw of the Razer Naga Trinity is that it comes with three right-thumb side button options. These can be switched out for options of either two, seven or twelve buttons, making it useful for regular games, MOBAs and MMOs.
In addition, it also has two dpi buttons located below the scroll wheel. The dpi buttons can be set for up to four profiles within the range of up to 16,000dpi. It uses an optical sensor.
WHAT MOUSEPAD DOES COHHCARNAGE USE?
CohhCarnage uses a CORSAIR MM350 mousepad. The MM350 offers a 930mm x 400mm (36. 6” x 15. 7”) mousepad with a woven cloth surface that is designed to optimize gliding. It is designed with antifray stitching on its borders, as well as a rubberized underside to keep the mousepad from slipping during use.
WHAT KEYBOARD DOES COHHCARNAGE USE?
CohhCarnage uses a Razer DeathStalker keyboard. The Razer DeathStalker is a full-sized non-mechanical keyboard that comes in Expert/Backlit (green LED backlighting), Essential/Standard (no backlighting) and Chroma (RGB) options. The keyboard features green switches (not Cherry) with Chiclet keycaps that has 2mm actuation points with a 1,000Hz Ultrapolling boost.
This keyboard is fully programable and the number pad doubles as a 10 key rollover pad with ghosting capabilities The wrist rest is attached to the keyboard, as is the braided ~178cm (70”). All of the programming must be set through the Razer Synapse 2.0 software.
WHAT HEADSET DOES COHHCARNAGE USE?
CohhCarnage uses a Corsair Void Pro headset. CohhCarnage’s gaming setup includes the same wireless headset as Mongraal. It is a closed-back, over-ear headset with Dolby 7.1 surround sound capabilities. The 50mm neodymium speaker drivers that allow for a frequency response of between 20 – 20,000Hz with a sensitivity of 107dB (+/ 3dB) and impedance of 32Ohms at 1kHz.
The headset can receive data from up to 12m (40ft) from the receiver and can last for up to 16 hours. They can also be used while plugged in. However, it’s important to bear in mind that a few buyers have reported that it starts giving charging issues after a few months.
The microphone is unidirectional with a frequency response range of 100 – 10,000Hz. It is a flips up and is muted with the mute button, which is indicated with an LED symbol at the tip of the microphone. However, CohhCarnage doesn’t make use of the microphone, so you will need to watch a review video to get an idea of the audio quality.
WHAT MICROPHONE DOES COHHCARNAGE USE?
CohhCarnage uses a Shure SM7B microphone. The Shure SM7B is a cardiod microphone that offers a flat frequency response range of between 50 – 20,000Hz. It also boasts a bass roll off and presence boost switch on its base to further improve the audio output quality.
Its nominal output impedance is at 150Ohms and has a sensitivity of -59dB. In addition to the built-in pop-filter, it also comes with a detachable A7WS windscreen. Both of these help to eliminate unwanted extraneous sounds such as spoken plosives in the case of the pop-filter and electrical background interference with the windscreen.
The SM7B is powered with an XLR cable, which will need to be purchased separately, but does not require phantom power. It also come with a nut stand to help connect it to a mic stand or boom arm.
WHAT WEBCAM DOES COHHCARNAGE USE?
CohhCarnage uses a Logitech C920 webcam. CohhCarnage has chosen to stick with the basic plug-and-play C920 webcam that is meant for simple chat recordings. It is capable for recording at 30fps for both 720p and 1080p shots for a screen resolution of up to 1920 x 1080p and is compatible with Window 7 and up, as well as Mac OS 10.10 or later.
WHAT MIXER DOES COHHCARNAGE USE?
CohhCarnage uses a TC Helicon GoXLR mixer. The GoXLR is a Windows 7 and up-compatible 4-channel mixer that can provide +48V of phantom power and 70Db of gain. It also has RGB lighting options. These four channels each have their own dedicated slider for the four volume sliders for Mic, Chat, Music and System controls, as the device only has the capacity to handle one audio input and one headphone input at a time. These need to be powered by either and XLR cable or a TS/TRSTRRS jack.
It has options to create and alter a variety of vocal effects that can be manipulated directly on the GoXLR, including Reverb, Pitch Echo and Gender Bend (each of which have their own dedicated nob), as well as other effects such as Robot, Megaphone and HardTune. There are also more advanced options available through its software.
There is a sample section that allows the user to intersperse their live recordings with short bursts of preset sound files to enhance video recordings or podcasts. Another section of the board includes muting and bleep options.
