An In-Depth Look At GiantWaffle’s Gaming Setup

GiantWaffle started his Twitch channel in 2011 and has made a name for itself through his consistent stream and his ability to entertain. While he streams Minecraft content, he also frequently ventures out into other gaming, particularly when collaborating with Lirik or shortyyguy. His content is usually clean but he can swear at times during co-streams. However, viewers are often warned when this happens.

GiantWaffle has a very professional gaming setup. Some of this equipment is too expensive for a new streamer. We have included a list of his basic equipment, so you can upgrade if you wish.


GiantWaffle is using an ASUS ROG Swift PGL279Q monitor. The 27-inch monitor is also used in B0aty’s gaming setup as well as those of Danucds and many other streamers. The maximum resolution is 2560x1440p, with a 4ms response time and a refresh speed of 165Hz. NVIDIA G Sync technology, which is integrated in the screen, ensures that the refresh rate of the computer’s GPU is synchronized. This helps to minimize stuttering and lagging. ASUS Eye Care Technology is also integrated into the screen. This technology provides four settings for blue light to help reduce eye strain during long gaming sessions.

With a push of a button, the screen will pop out from the stand to enable VESA wall mount. It can also be mounted on a stand and adjusted in height between 0 to 12 cm (0.73″ to 4.73″); it can rotate between +60deg -60deg, pivot 90deg counterclockwise, and tilt between +20deg -5deg. The viewing angle of the screen is 178deg(H),/178deg (V).

The dimensions include the stand and measure 61.8×55.3×23.8cm (9.4×24.4×21.8 inches).

Corsair Sabre, a wired gaming mouse weighing 100g (0.22 lbs), has been created for right-handed gamers who hold a palm grip. The Pixart S3989 optical sensor can provide a maximum range of 10,000 DPI. It is also possible to set increments of 50, starting at 50 DPI. You can also choose from 125Hz to 250Hz, 500Hz, 1000Hz or 1000Hz report rates.

The buttons can be programmed with eight clickers, with right and left clickers set up with Omron switches. These Omron switches are designed to last 20 million clicks. You can program the buttons and the 4-zone RGB lighting through the iCUE Software.

The dimensions of the device are 124mmx80mmx38mm (5.88×3.14×1.5”). Its chassis is made out of hard plastic, while its clickable scroll wheel and rubber wheels are constructed from rubber. To aid in gripping, it has thumb and pinky rests that protrude slightly from each side. The braided fibre cable measures 1.8mm in length. This cable is compatible with Windows 7 and higher.

GiantWaffle has both the Corsair K70 keyboard and the Corsair K65. He states that he uses the K65 as well as the K70 keyboards, but a picture of the setup shows that the K70 is the primary one. This is why we’ll be discussing it here. You can also get the K70 as part of HusKerr’s gaming set. There are many switches available for on Corsair’s website. Amazon only offers red and brown Cherry MX. GiantWaffle didn’t specify which switches he chose, so we’ve linked the Cherry MX Brown & Quiet version. They have a 1.2mm actuation and a 1,000Hz report rate. These can also be replaced with other cherry switches using the included switch removal tool. However, these must be bought separately.

The frame of the device is made of aircraft-grade anodized aluminum brushed aluminum. Keycaps and switches, however, are also made out plastic. The extra set includes a MOBA/FPS keycap that is textured to aid grip and a soft-touch, detachable wrist-rest. They are 100% anti-ghosting and have full-key rollover. The media control button and buttons are located in the upper right corner. A Windows and Context Menu lock button is found towards the bottom left corner.

There are not dedicated macro keys. However, per-key RGB lighting can easily be adjusted through the iCUE Software, which offers full, custom, and non-dedicated options.

GiantWaffle uses Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones. GiantWaffle is using the wired black version of Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones. These are closed-back, over-ear, and closed-backed.

It has a sensitivity level of 32mV/PA, a nominal impedance at 200 Ohms and a frequency response of 20 to 18,000Hz. You also get a high pass filter and a -10dB pad.

It comes with a HM2 zipper case and HM2 hard mounting, but you’ll need an XLR cable as well as an audio interface that has 48V phantom powers.

The Audio Technica BPHS1 boom mic can be purchased only with the BPHS1 headset. If the specs of the BPHS1 look good to you, it is best to either buy the ATH-50x or the BPHS1.

GiantWaffle has a Sony A7R II as well as a Sony A6000. GiantWaffle doesn’t specify which camera he uses, so we won’t go into detail about either. The mirrorless cameras can accept interchangeable lenses. GiantWaffle also used them with the Sony FL 28mm and Sony LX-70mm f/4 lenses. Both cameras have a 100–25600 ISO base range, while the Sony a6000 has a maximum of 101-51,200. The Sony a7R II, on the other hand, can expand to 50-102,400.

The a6000 uses an APS-C sensor, which provides a resolution up to 24mp. While the A7ZR is based upon a full frame sensor with 42.2mp, it has a full frame sensor. The a6000 records at Full HD 1920 x 1080 at 24-p, or at fast-paced action scenes at 60p, 60, and 60i framesrates. While the a7R can capture 4K footage at 30p, it can’t record full HD at Full HD. Sony7R II weighs in at 625g and 127x96mm respectively. The a6000 measures at 120x67x45mm, while the sony7R II weighs 344.73 (0.76lbs). Other differences exist as well.

These cameras are both high-end and will cost extra for connectors and stands, capture cards and other accessories. They also have additional features that may not be necessary to meet the needs of an amateur streamer. provides a better understanding of the differences between webcams and’real’ cameras.

GiantWaffle employs an Allen & Heath ZED-14 mixer with a Behringer MDX4600 4-Channel compressor mixer mixer. It is another useless tablehog measuring 464.8x386x98mm (18.30x 15.2×3.86″) but it can be very helpful if you really need it. It has 6 stereo inputs and 4 mono inputs. There are also left and right inputs. Except for the right and left inputs, each of them has a row of controls knobs and sliders. The controls consist of a standard gain knob and a low cut-of butler, 3-band EQ, with a sweepable middle, four auxiliary knobs, as well as a pan knob, mutes button and a PFL.

It has USB 2-chanel return and send in the upper right-hand corner. It has six XLR input ports at the top and a row with TPRS 3/4″ inputs. You will also find routing knobs and buttons above the right and left inputs. This is better if you plan to host in-house podcasts that have multiple hosts than a dual or single stream setup.

This extra feature is not available to many streamers. It reduces the volume of the sound input so the lighter sounds are more audible.
