Summit1g is a competitive game known for its competitive CS streams.
He is a trend-setting old-school variety streamer from before the likes of Shroud and other popular streamers.
He's been entertaining the world on streams since 2011 on Justin.tv.
He has come far to signing with Twitch.tv to stream on their platform full-time.
Recently, revisiting his streams Twitch made me wonder how much have his game settings, system performance requirements, and aesthetic tastes have differed, if at all?
After research, I've compiled below a complete list of Summit1g's PC, gaming, and streaming gear.
Let's take a look!
For the speedy & up-to-date Setup, any% run!
Summit1g's streaming gear has the following equipment.
Summit1g uses the following components on his desk.
The following hardware completes the Summit1g setup! Summit has two Gaming PC.
Some prefer DSLMs and DSLRs, but Summit1g and Nickmercs prefer the plug-n-play of a Logitech C922 webcam.
It is a simple clip-on-style webcam that records and streams in 720p at 60fps and 1080p at 30fps.
The cam has a convenient effect that lets users use images as background without a green screen.
It also comes with a tripod and a free three-month subscription to Xsplit.
While his headset has a microphone, Summit uses a mic that services critical projects, professional studios, and live performances.
The side-address condenser cardioid delivers modern, crisp details with low noise that is most sensitive at the front and least at the back.
Thus it isolates unwanted background noise.
It has a switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter and 10 dB pad; it easily handles high sound pressures.
It gives high levels of resistance to feedback when compared to others.
Due to these aspects, a cardioid mic is ideal for loud stages where you need to be heard without getting distorted.
Summit1g is seen sporting a studio boom arm for radio, broadcast, and studio use by Rode.
The Rode PSA1 is a side microphone arm that offers a horizontal and vertical reach of 820mmx 840mm.
It has touch-fastener cable wraps with desk-clamps and desk-insert hardware bundled.
Summit is showed off his Behringer Xenyx 1204US on Twitter. The ultra-low noise, high headroom analog mixer has four phantom-powered Mic Preamps and studio-grade compressors with simple one-knob functionality.
It has neo-classic British 3-band EQs for warm and musical sound Rock and Roll sounds.
The two USB out built-in stereo USB/Audio Interface connects directly to your computer for the highest level of tuning.
Summmit1g records with the HD60 PRO at 1080p at 60Hz passthrough for high definition recording and can preview while live streaming and flashback recording.
It allows to record directly onto a drive and works with nearly all streaming apps out of the box.
For quick maneuvering between applications in a Livestream, Summit1g uses an Elgato stream deck.
The deck has 15 programmable tactile keys to quick switch between applications for any professional gamer/streamer needs.
Summit1g illuminates his room using an Elgato Key Lighting to customize his lighting.
He likes the key lighting, so he can operate it from the conveniences of his PC over WiFi to adjust the 2800 lumens of brightness and warm light.
It consumes 45w of power.
Summit is still rocking a Cherry red Air58 Ninja.
The mouse is hand engraved with individualized Haiku Scrolls on the wheel of every mouse.
Its Pixart PMW3360 sensor provides ample precise movements across various materials.
It weighs only 58g.
It looks like cheese has something to do with it being one of the lightest mice in the market.
The only sad thing about this mouse is Final selling their soul to a partnership deal that shot up the sticker price, comically.
Since standard mouse pads get in the way of a competitive gamer with limited travel real estate, the MM200 provides complete control over a wider mat.
The mouse pad is big and soft to touch, whether it is playing Tarkov to quickly track players or a squad wipe in PUBG.
Unlike other mats, its packaging is superb.
This mouse pad glides nicely and has more grip than the competition.
It protects the mouse gliders from damage better than other mats.
Summit1g has two white Corsair K70 RGB MK.2s.
The mechanical keyboard has a durable aluminum frame for reliability and Cherry MX for fast switches with fast 1.2mm actuation.
The K70 MK.2 features a detachable wrist rest for stress-less gaming sessions.
Corsair's iCUE allows backlighting customization to cater to all styles and setups.
The additional USB pass-through port gives convenient mouse or headset access.
We often see Summit with the bulky cans in a honeycomb aluminum casing.
The AD700X are open-backs, thus producing no sense of pressure on the ears.
The large 53 mm drivers with CCAW voice coils deliver superior crashes and vocals.
The self-adjusting headband adjusts to your head for easy-wearing.
A straight cord at the left earpiece terminates to a mini plug with included 6.3mm adapter.
Highly conductive OFC single-sided cord with elastic TPE sheath prevents tangles.
Summit1g uses a 27-inch curved Full HD, 240 Hz Odyssey G7 monitor as his primary.
Thanks to its native curved QLED and WQHD resolution, it has a theater-like field of view.
VA panel gives deep blacks! The monitor has G-Sync and FreeSync compatibility with 109 PPI for astonishing text clarity and great-looking media on HDR.
In some cases, Vulcan and HDR aren't compatible with the monitor going blank and starting only after replugging.
Summit has four other Asus monitors, too.
Summit uses a Noblechair's Head custom Summit1G partnership chair.
Every full-time streamer comprehends the significance of an excellent seating experience and how it can affect their back and posture.
The Nobel Hero offers lumbar support, which takes care of his lower back, and it comes with several adjustable features for every body type or size.
Summit1g uses an Intel 9th gen i9 9900k processor's eight cores and 16 threads for superior single-core performance in games to deliver a stellar gaming experience.
With game performance priority.
Intel has built their motherboards using STIM (Solder Thermal Interface Material) to facilitate overclocking and cooling.
Summit1G's rig uses the Corsair's Hydro Series H115i RGB AIO Liquid cooler for CPU cooling.
Corsair had built two 280mm fans w/ radiator and RGB vanity for crucial low CPU temps.
Its 24 individual LEDs offer a wealth of lighting configurations with their iCue software.
The fans run between 400 to 2,000 RPM, cooling cold plate and pump that deliver stellar hydro series cooling.
The system is 'Easy to install and compatible with nearly all CPU sockets.
It is available in 1/2/3 fan offerings.
Summit1G uses ASUS's Republic 0f Gamers STRIX RTX 2080 Ti.
The 2080 Ti is mighty faster than most GPUs available, given the current shortage on the market.
Summit does not overclock it and runs the STRIX 2080 Ti stock.
At stock config it stays below 80 degrees, which is relatively unaffected by the GPU's considerable heat up at higher clocks.
At a load of 85 degrees, the TDP restricts further overclocking with a voltage limitation, but the bottleneck is from power.
The STRIX can support four monitors, VR, and a resolution of up to 8K.
As you can see, Summit likes to use ASUS's ROG line.
The board offers excellent efficiency and software with decent overclocking.
A mid-level feature board aimed at overclocking the i9-9900K, the Z390 board had tough competition from pricier competitors for a more excellent value in features than just a price difference.
Better RGB, a polished software interface, and for performance enthusiasts, it overclocks as well as pricier competitors, and that is where the benefits end.
Summit uses fast DDR4 32 gigs of memory from G.Skill to keep processes running smoothly.
Summit has two of these cases.
CORSAIR's 680X Crystal Series once made a daily appearance on his streams, but now Goku, Vegeta, and the Athena chest(Sea of Thieves) take the spot.
They say, "Beauty lies on the inside"- in this case, the tempered glass door follows this philosophy ardently.
The Omnissiah has blessed the case with looks and high-performance specifications in airflow!
Its form follows the function here with a dual-chamber layout.
One chamber to maximize cooling and the other for drives, cable management, and PSU mounting in the other chamber.
The fans have configurable lighting, so you can keep it lit up like Vegas or turn them individually off!
Summit1g uses 7x large 120mm fans that produce whirlwinds to keep the insides cooler than the RGB! If you count the PSU and GPU, that is 11 fans.
Summit1g uses CORSAIR's AX1200i Modular PSU— The 1200 Watt is 80 PLUS PLATINUM for maximum energy efficiency.
The first to have iCUE and digital (DSP) control for monitoring and customization.
The DSP allows on-the-fly adjustments for incredibly tight voltage regulation and clean, stable power.
Summit uses two NVMe M.2 SSD for fast transfers, editing, recording, and game load times!
Summit has the storage down with Western Digital's reliability and a large 4 TB HDD at 5400 RPM for the glorious stream highlights on YouTube.
Summit1g's real name is Jaryd Lazar.
His PC build comes to roughly $3000 in 2022.
He mainly plays Escape from Tarkov, Grand Theft Auto V, Hearthstone, Sea of Thieves, Valorant, DayZ, and iRacing.
Summit1g's PC is adept at handling any serious application on the market, even at stock.
His streaming and desk equipment is only expensive from the sound mixer, microphone, and mouse.
Overall, his only bottleneck is the GPU with thermal throttle at 85.
It was fun to revisit his gaming and streaming setup to comprehend his gaming and streaming priorities.
That is all about Summit1g's streaming setup in all its detail!
From his peripherals, PC, and streaming gear, I see he prioritizes frames/gameplay over graphics, is critical about audio and is a straight shooter who loves pop-culture collectibles.
All in all, Summit1g has the setup of an experienced, competitive, and endearing Twitch streamer
