It's always interesting to see what famous streamers and YouTubers rock in their gaming setup.
PewDiePie was one of those people I had to check out.
I mean, the guy dominates the YouTube gaming scene, has over 110 million subs, and the video quality is *chef's kiss emoji*.
Having done a little digging to see what he's rocking as of right now, we found out that his setup alone is worth a whopping $20,000 - with his PC build responsible for $5,000 of the total price.
That is a significant number, but to be expected if you are an international star posting HQ videos.
In this article, we will explore the PewDiePie setup in total so that you can gain an insight into the mind of a successful streamer/YouTuber.
Let's dive in!
Let's take a look at the PewDiePie equipment arsenal.
PewDiePie desk is the Humanscale FNSM43 adjustable table.
Adjustable tables allow you to stand up at your desk, which can benefit your health; check out the health benefits of a standing desk.
Although, the FNSM43 will set you back about around ~$1,400, which is quite pricey.
Here is an affordable alternative; the SHW 55" height adjustable desk.
PewDiePie rocks Clutch Chair's 100M / Red chair and his own PewDiePie branding.
The 100M is known for the dura soft leather and is comfortable for prolonged use.
As PewDiePie is on his computer most of the time, having a chair that doesn't strain your back after a couple of hours is vital.
The chair itself has a game-like aesthetic, with an included back and headrest that you can adjust.
Also, it reclines all the way back.
Pewdie uses the AiBOB Office Chair Mat as his office mat of choice.
Not much to say here other than it helps protect your floor from scratches when moving your chair around.
The AiBOB seems to have an odor issue which I wouldn't recommend. If you want a high-quality chair mat that's reliable, you can try this mat by SHAREWIN here.
When you have a lot of gear, the sheer amount of cords can be annoying to deal with.
So, where cable management comes in, PewDiePie rocks some awesome D-Link cable management boxes to hide his surge protectors and keep it neat.
He also ties them up using velcro cable straps, so they're not just hanging out everywhere.
The Transparent speaker PewDiePie use is a wireless Bluetooth speaker and 3.6 mm wired cable.
The speaker is specifically designed to be an open and minimalist design style.
It has an active 2.1 stereo speaker with full-range drivers and a subwoofer with a built-in amplifier.
PewDiePie has gone for a VA panel curved ultra wide Odyssey G9 49" gaming monitor for a minimalist low clutter workflow.
The QLED has vibrant and accurate colors for a VA panel. at a native resolution of 5120x1440 (32:9), eliminating triple monitor setups.
The monitor works hard and plays hard with fast ~1ms responses at 240Hz, and a smooth interface with GSync and FreeSync.
It has 2xDisplay/USB Port, 1xHDMI/headphone jack.
Following a collaboration with Ghost, PewDiePie got his signature M1 on the markets.
The featherweight M1 mouse is under 65 grams at a fast response time < 1ms.
The PewDiePie-themed honeycomb mouse is made for low latency clicks, adjustable polling, and drag clicks.
The RGB vanity of PewDiePie's signature outer shell theme is perfect for all setups!
PewDiePie's signature Ghost A1 – Wireless Gaming Keyboard includes fast Cherry MX keycaps that are a popular choice among the mechanical keyboard community for their tactility.
The keyboard is a compact 60% layout for minimalists with pre-lubed stabilizers for smooth, satisfying key presses on the larger keys.
There is no mouse without a reliable mouse pad, and the SteelSeries QcK+ is one of those mousepads that have been around for a while.
It's a cloth gaming mouse pad that allows smooth mouse movements and protects your mouse feet.
Coupled with PewDiePie's lightweight 65g Ghost M1, this is an excellent combination if you play games that need accurate mouse movements.
PewDiePie adored the Razer Kraken Pro V2 as his go-to gaming headset, even going as far as buying RGB Kitty Ears for added aesthetics.
Having been a long-time user, PewDiePie has since partnered with Razer to come out with his very own PewDiePie-themed Razer Kraken Pro V2 headset.
The headset includes PewDiePie's signature black and red striped pattern and all the perks you would have from a standard Kraken Pro V2.
The audio is clear and crisp, the headset itself has a nice, sturdy frame, and it is compatible with other consoles like PlayStation and Xbox.
Pewdie has an Oculus Quest 2 Advanced AIO VR Headset to experience the virtual worlds on a 128GB model, you can download and play games from the headset without any need of PC or mobile.
The quest makes sense for Pewd’s minimalist philosophy as it only needs 15 mins to set up and play with his family.
VR sets have a limited Interpupillary Distance (IPD), and Quest 2’s is 68m.
The exact PC components featured in his gaming rig are unknown to Pewdie's himself, but he's happy it has brofist on it.
Given that he is one of the most popular YouTubers on the planet, you know he would have some goodies; heck, even LinusTechTips built him one.
The PC that Linus built PewDiePie isn't the one he's currently using.
The PC build he is currently using is cost-effective and not overkill like what other streamers would typically have.
He has a lighter-weight PC than his larger custom PC, which he had given to Sive to use to do video editing.
Below are the PC parts of his main custom PC based on what we have based on research:
That's his main build components, and he knows that it's all the "good stuff" under the hood.
The fact that he uses an 11GB RTX 2080Ti alongside the entire 64GB of RAM slot is enough to bring down the most demanding applications.
It's not the most "high-end" PC I've ever seen, but Pewdie is no competitive gamer, and the rig is strong enough to run any game on high FPS.
The desktop wallpaper that PewDiePie uses is known as "Gas Station In The Rain."
PewDiePie has since sold the Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro…the behemoth was let go in favour of quality and space, but has now put that on the back burner and is using the more compact Sony A7 III.
He upgraded to a Sony Alpha 7 III to appease the floor gang so they don't complain about camera quality on stream.
The A7 mirrorless excellence speaks versatility on a budget- the 24.2-MP5 Exmor R CMOS sensor captures documentary quality footage.
Pewds can record as per the schedule without worrying about space.
He also has a Canon Powershot G7 as his overhead camera for branded collab streams.
Would you need cameras like this for YouTube? Perhaps. They’re both great versatile cameras.
While webcams like Nickmercs’ do the job, a Mirrorless delivers uncompromised quality.
PewDiePie uses a Manfrotto 190 Kit Alu 4-Section Tripod for the Sony Alpha 7. The tripod is simply the best available on the market for maximum stability in shooting with four-leg angles.
Bet it flat on the ground, on unstable surfaces; the lightweight tripod has flip leg lock action for easy one-handed adjustability.
As for the overhead desk camera Pewdie has a desk mounted camera rig from ULANZI.
This single-arm load-bearing camera rig can adjust to any setup requirements.
The multidirectional ballhead can handle a weight of 4.4lbs (2KG).
Its swing and arm extensions adjust to any camera position for uncompromised shooting flexibility.
It’s unnecessary but given its minimalist nature Pewdie likes it and may have to use it more often, given his Youtube comeback.
The camera lens of choice for PewDiePie is the Canon EF 16-35mm with an aperture of f/2.8.
The lens itself has a decent range for wide-angle or close-ups.
The aperture is f/2.8 which is very good for low-light situations.
This is an area where Pewdie's setup was different from other streamers.
He now uses an RE320 variable cardioid.
PewDiePie still has the lavalier, but is trying out Electro-Voice’s RE320 Vocal microphone.
The cardioid is ideal for podcasting at a frequency range of 30-18k Hz and recording bass, drums, and low voices at 45-18K Hz.
For auto-tuning and mixing with his Lavalier, PewDiePie uses BEHRINGER U-PHORIA UMC202HD pre-amp 2-Channel that is hooked up to old man Senny's True Diversity Receiver EM 100 Series G3 as his audio interfaces for voice amplification and tuning.
Quite the roundabout, but this way, he does not need to have a mic stand or a condenser always in front of his face while reducing congestion in his setup.
Dare I say; it gives a clean look to his face cam.
PewDiePie has a sound board that he seldom uses but keeps close to him. The MPD218 is a MIDI-over-USB DJ pad feature packed to help Pewd’s realise his inner music enthusiast.
PewDiePie uses an Elgato Game Capture 4K60 Pro MK.2 to capture his Japanese PS4 Pro footage.
It can record at 4K60 HDR10 and at 240Hz passthrough for dual PC setups with Instant Gameview technology to preview while live streaming and flashback recording.
It's a bit pricey, but it allows to record directly onto a drive and works with most streaming apps out of the box.
For quick maneuvering between applications in a Livestream, PewDiePie uses an Elgato stream deck.
The deck has 15 programmable tactile keys to quick switch between applications for any professional gamer/streamer needs.
PewDiePie illuminates his room using an Elgato Key Lighting in his setup tour video.
PewDiePie loves his key lighting by Elgato, so he can operate it from the conveniences of his PC over WiFi to adjust the 2800 lumens of brightness and warm light.
He has two of them instead of a camera ring light.
Each consumes 45w of power.
While it is efficient to consider the PC setup, Pewdie still has to get up to adjust its position.
While PewDiePie does have an Elgato Green Screen, he seldom uses it; it lives now rolled up on the floor behind his setup.
The PewDiePie gaming setup has Nanoleaf Light Panels / LED Light Strip Kit to light up his background.
He can control his lighting panels through WiFi which is also compatible with mobile devices like the Elgato key lights.
The panels are modular with full adjustability over Chroma and other home kit integrations.
They are available in various shapes, panels, and patterns.
Given his pricey and loud internet, they make his setup grossly incandescent and save on the electric bill.
His gaming desk is one of the simplest of all significant streamers.
The stand of choice is the Tilted Nation RGB for his gaming headphones.
Pewdie likes this a lot for the two USB 3.0 ports and cable management system for gaming mice while playing games.
While he does use a gaming PC, primarily, I found PewDiePie from PS3 TLOU walkthroughs.
Let's see how much his console collection has expanded since.
PewDiePie has a Gamecube that he still uses.
An excellent console from Nintendo launched back in 2001 that changed the face of console gaming.
It was more powerful in computing and graphical fidelity than the PS2 with supporting DVD variants.
Its graphics engine was capable of stereoscopic 3D, which the world had not seen before.
It had the most amount of game titles for any console. Some were made for a quick buck by devs.
PewDiePie also has the Switch for the ultimate pocket gaming experience, along with the legendary Gamecube.
It's a breakthrough portable console that scratched all on-the-go gaming needs.
When it was docked, it gave better performance and frames, with controllers away from the screen; it still is innovative today.
The switch had a rough launch but is well supported now and is still the best in portable gaming.
PewDiePie still rocks his Nintendo Wii U.
He likes its mobility and intractability.
While the console is not as powerful as its competitors, I can't picture Pewdie's playthroughs without the Wii U.
PewDiePie still has his base PS4 but now uses a PS4 Pro that he bought in Japan.
The pro nestles next to his PC.
The pro has upgraded graphics, load times, and storage from the base edition but is also beefier in size from the launch edition.
While PewDiePie has a controller for all of his consoles.
He has two PS4 controllers, but the one that stands out is his new signature duo tone red-black psychedelic design with a brofist logo.
Felix has not made it available for sale yet.
Another decade is another new console from team blue, the PlayStation 5.
However, this time, there was a pandemic and mass console shortage.
PewDiePie got the launch version before the scalpers.
The console is an excellent value for money for the technology and exclusives.
But, PS 5 doesn't support accessibility which Xbox offers support for.
It's team green, and all things considered, it's not a huge surprise he owns an Xbox One (White).
His current Xbox One is part of the server rig with other consoles for the best cable management possible.
From Marzia's ever-growing clay pots to meme collectibles, let's look at some memorabilia around his setup.
The Toby 16" Critterbox figurine is probably one of his prized possession.
As a Baseman fan, it's no wonder PewDiePie spared no expense in getting what is probably one of the best pieces of Urban Vinyl, and that too, a Gary Baseman signed collectible.
It had a limited run of only 200 ever made; they now go for thousands of dollars.
Memorabilia for anyone old and new who enjoys Pewd's content.
Nothing shows love more than having a customizable 7" PewDiePie figurine.
Gotta show it! Gotta have it! A fan's mark of support!
Pewdiepie got his figurine to show his love for gundams and wanted to build one himself. He live-streamed his decaling process of the Nu Gundam.
The model that he has is a RX-93 v Nu Gundam Evolve (Ver. Ka) with fin funnels, shield, and a beam rifle in IKEA colours.
The PewDiePie figurine is for every fan, but the Tambourine is for the Floor Gang.
A great way to chime in on big bro's streams!
This one is available only via a secret code for the select few who've supported him on Tier 3.
A certified floor gang moment.
The Gibson Les Paul is one of the most iconic guitar designs to date, and PewDiePie has one in stunning Ebony and gold accents.
While Pewdie can play the guitar and sing simultaneously, he has only done it on his ebony Spanish guitar.
He has only played this one with his teeth.
Yes, people struggle with fingers; Pewdie uses teeth -I mean, what can I say? He's just built differently!
Pewdie wanted to protect himself and his bro army from contracting the simp virus and the corona.
But he found standard masks made in china, so he made this custom mask with a bit of help.
You can see PewDiePie with a couple of tubs of G-Fuel as his energy drink.
G-fuel has been an energy sponsor for many content creators and streamers.
They taste great and rejuvenate with zero added sugars and calories!
PewDiePie has just started using the Thor Hammer fidget spinner in his recent videos while reacting to memes on his youtube channel.
While his PC is a bit expensive at a cool $5,000, the rest of the setup is nearly priceless, with the Toby Critter not available for sale.
Pewdie's equipment is worth a wallet breaking $20,000 without the collectibles.
PewDiePie has been appraised to have a net worth of $40M by the end of 2021.
His real name is Felix Kjellberg.
Well, that is all about Pewdie's setup for streaming and gaming purposes in all its detail!
PewDiePie's PC, peripherals, consoles, and gear is anything that requires him not to move.
A priority for convenience and simple interfaces. He shows that while having the best gear does help, it's not essential to provide the best content on the web.
A convenient straight setup of an endearing, entertaining guy and the undisputed king of YouTube.
