Ray_C is known primarily as a relatively OG Rust streamer, having started in 2015. He made a name for himself for his trolling, sense of humor, and collaborations with streamers such as hJune. However, nowadays, he is more known for his GTA V roll play friendship with the offline.tv crew. Below, we have provided a brief overview of the gear that has been included in Ray_C’s gaming setup to enhance both his production and gameplay quality for his viewers for your interest.
WHAT MOUSE DOES RAY_C USE?
Ray_C uses a FinalMouse Air58 mouse. He has opted for the Mystic Blue version of the Air58. Its name comes from its being extremely light at just 58g (2oz). FinalMouse cut down on its eight by constructing it with a lightweight plastic chassis with honeycomb holes and omitting lighting features. Another reason why it originally gained so much popularity was due to its being a limited-edition mouse that was designed together with Ninja and has both his signature on the side, as well as a hand-engraved unique haiku that is not found on either of the other mouse in the range. However, new batches are released incrementally. It has two buttons on the right thumb side as well as 100% PTFE feet to help provide more control while gaming. It measures 12.8 x 6 x 4cm (32.51 x 15.24 x 10.16″.)
It has a PMW3360 optical sensor that offers a dpi options of 400, 800, 1600 and 3200. There are no adjustment options. Its polling rate is 500Hz @ 2ms. It operates at a maximum acceleration of 50G and a maximum speed of 250 IPS.
WHAT MOUSEPAD DOES RAY_C USE?
Ray_C uses a SteelSeries QcK mousepad. RayC’s gaming setup features a SteelSeries QcK mousepad. Although he hasn’t specified which size he has chosen, based on the image from Twitter, we are guessing that it was the large cloth. Its surface is composed of micro woven cloth that is designed to optimize low and high tracking speeds. The cloth is attached to a rubberized base to prevent it from sliding during use. Its dimensions are 45 x 40 x 0.2mm (17.72 x 15.7 x 0.08”)
WHAT KEYBOARD DOES RAY_C USE?
Ray_C uses a Corsair K70 keyboard. The Corsair K70 is a full-sized mechanical gaming keyboard that is available in a range of Cherry MX switch options. Ray_C’s keyboard is soldered with Cherry MX Red switches. These provide smooth and direct feedback, actuate at 2mm and have a total travel distance of 4mm. The plate-mounted ABS keycaps can be removed and swapped out with its keycap puller, and it even comes with an extra set of textured FPS keycaps as well. Its chassis is composed of aircraft-grade anodized brushed aluminum.
The per-key RGB lighting effects, macro profiles, and polling rate options can be set through its Corsair Utility Engine software. Macro profiles can also be programmed on-the-fly. It has flip-up feet on both the front and back of the device. It is compatible with Mac OS X 10.12 Sierra and Windows 10, as well as Xbox One and PS4 devices.
WHAT HEADSET DOES RAY_C USE?
Ray_C uses AKG Pro Audio K701 headphones. The AKG K701 Pro are reference headphones are intended for professional use in recording studios and for audiophiles. They are constructed from lightweight plastic with an open back, over-ear design and are available in either white, black or green. Ray_C’s gaming setup includes the white version. The earcups have 50mm drivers that provide a frequency response range of 10 – 39,800Hz, 62Ω and sensitivity of 105dB SPL/V.
The ear cups are very large and have a think velour-covered cushioning. They have a self-adjusting dual-layer headband that is made from real leather. These features make it comfortable for use over long periods. As they are open-backed, there is some sound leakage, so they are better suited for private use. They weigh 235g (8.32oz), have dimensions of 11.3 x 19.9 x 21.2cm (4.45 x 7.84 x 8.35″) and come with a detachable 3m (9.8ft) cable, a 6.3mm (1/4”) to 3.5mm (1/8″) screw-on adapter and a headphone stand.
WHAT MICROPHONE DOES RAY_C USE?
Ray_C uses an Electro-Voice RE20 microphone. The Electro-Voice is a large-diaphragm microphone that operates at an end-address and has a cardioid polar pattern. It offers a frequency response range of 45-18,000Hz at a nominal impedance of 150Ω. This is because it is primarily intended for vocal recordings. It is integrated with Electro-Voice’s Variable-D technology that helps to reduce tonal shift effects caused by proximity. It also has an internal wind and blast filter to block out plosive sounds from filtering in. As an added measure, Ray_C bought the bundle that included an Electro-Voice 309A that decreases interference from vibration-induced noises.
WHAT WEBCAM DOES RAY_C USE?
Ray_C uses a Sony a7 III camera. The Sony a7 III appears in the setups of quite a few streamers despite being its intended for professional-level photography rather than basic streaming. For instance, it can also be found in the setups of Diegosaurs, Muselk and ItmeJP. This digital mirrorless camera boasts an 24.2mp Exmor R CMOS sensor that provides a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160p resolution @ 10fps, as well as a ISO range of 100 – 51,200 that can be extended to up to 50 – 204,800 by means of a Sony E-mount compatible lens.
Furthermore, it features 5-axis image stabilization, as well as 4D, 693 phase-detection eye-detection autofocus. These help to ensure image clarity during fast-paced recordings and unreliable conditions. It also comes with a shoulder strap to provide easy access. It is relatively lightweight at 295g (10.5oz) and measures 126.9 x 95.6 x 73.7mm (5 x 3.76 x 3.88 x 3″.)
