I discovered TimTheTatman from his Overwatch streams when he became a certified Twitch partner.

Recently, watching streams on his YouTube channel made me wonder.

What setup does he use to play games?

How do his system performance and aesthetic differ?

What kind of a gaming pc would a full-time creator for a variety channel need?

A modest gaming pc or an overkill system?

A lot of the articles that describe TimTheTatman's setup have outdated information.

So we went directly to the source (his Discord server) and asked the mods directly.

Below is a complete list of TimTheTatman's PC, gaming, and streaming gear.

Let's dive in!

⚠️ The gear listed below came directly from the mods from Timthetatman's discord server, and wasn't just regurgitated (outdated) information. If you'd like to join his discord server, click here.

Instead of a wireless mouse, TimTheTatman prefers the no-hassle ease of use of HyperX's Pulsefire Haste braided ambidextrous palm grip gaming mouse.

It has two programmable buttons on both sides. Pixart's PAW3335 optical sensor is on par with 3389, and a power-efficient variant, designed for wireless, makes a wired appearance here.

DPI ranges up to 16000 in increments of 50 through its software. Presets are available in 100, 800, 1600, and 3200 DPI with the DPI button. The RGB can be tweaked using the HyperX NGENUITY software.

It is a lightweight gaming mouse with a tracking speed of up to 450ips, perfect for fast reflexes.

TimTheTatman prefers HyperX Fury S Pro XL Mouse Pad. 

Standard mouse pads get in the way with their limited travel real estate. The Fury S pro provides complete control over a wider 900mm x 420 mm mat.

Be it playing as a tank in World of Warcraft to quickly track 'taunts' or a squad wipe in Warzone, the mouse pad is big and soft to touch. Unlike other mats, its packaging is superb.

This mouse pad glides like silk and has more grip than bird stains on a car. It protects the mouse gliders from damage better than other mats.

Tim uses an Audio-Technica BP40 microphone. The BP40 costs about as much as a new PS4. It's a unidirectional dynamic hyper-cardioid microphone design with a built-in pop-filter.

In simple terms, it can cancel out background noises that may interfere with the audio output quality. Musicians and sound engineers use this microphone for live studio recordings. The narrower frequency range of 50-16,000 Hz focuses on vocals.

It needs a mic holding armature, XLR cable, and mixer also.

TimTheTatman uses a Panasonic Lumix G7KS 4K Mirrorless as a webcam.

A DSLM as a webcam ensures that he gets a high-quality video to broadcast to his viewers, even in low-light settings.

Tim's camera records at 4K, and the integrated WiFi quickly sends the video to the streaming software.

The DSLM requires a capture card + cam adapter to work.

While certainly overkill for the job, it allows the TimTheTatman setup to give the audience better cam quality that is easy on the eyes.

Mixer

You will see him sport a TC Helicon GoXLR mixer if you are on his streams. The GoXLR is multi-channel, allowing him to easily control the loudness and sound of the stream’s audio.

GLXLR allows for four-channel mixing.

This is necessary as his microphone requires tuning to function at its best!

The mixer is constructed with streamers in mind for fast sample recording to make those perfectly timed stream moments. It also allows Tim to adjust, fine-tune his microphone output and add effects to augment and distort his voice.

TimTheTatman uses the Herman Miller x Logitech Embody; the American chair brand signed him as their first global brand ambassador for their gaming division.
