FaZe Jarvis’ gaming setup: Headset, mouse, keyboard, and more

What does FaZe Jarvis use for gaming?

Jarvis “FaZe Jarvis” Khattri is a British YouTuber and streamer who started out playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 before moving to Fortnite.

During his career, FaZe Jarvis has had several controversies, including a lifetime ban from Fortnite. The ban resulted from FaZe Jarvis using aimbot cheats during a live Twitch stream, which violated Epic Games terms of service. 

Despite his Fortnite and Twitch ban, FaZe Jarvis is still a prolific YouTuber with over 4.8 million subscribers. He also has a channel with his older brother and participates in events like the YouTubers vs. Tiktokers boxing match.

This is FaZe Jarvis streaming setup. 

Headset

SteelSeries Arctis 5

The SteelSeries Arctis 5 is a virtual 7.1 surround headset compatible with many devices, including PCs, consoles, and mobile phones. The virtual 7.1 surround sound requires a USB-A soundcard and only works on PC, so console and mobile users have to use a 3.5-millimeter cable and make do with stereo sound.

SteelSeries headsets have a simple design, and the Arctis 5 is no different with large plastic ear cups featuring an oval lighting strip. Theres a retractable Discord-certified microphone built into the left ear cup, and it also houses the volume dial and mute button. To get the best out of this headset, PC users should install the SteelSeries Engine 3 app, which allows multiple profiles and advanced sound settings. 

Mouse

Endgame Gear XM1

Endgame Gears XM1 is a lightweight mouse designed for competitive gaming. Instead of having a honeycomb exterior like many lightweight rivals, it has a conventional look and still weighs in at 70 grams. One of the ways it achieves its light weight is by having a basic five-button design. The XM1 only has the usual left and right-click buttons with two side buttons on the left side and a scroll wheel.

Despite its basic design, the XM1 has high-quality components. It has a Pixart PMW3389 sensor that goes up to 16,000 CPI. The Omron switches are responsive and have an estimated lifespan of around 50 million clicks. 

Keyboard

Many pros use tenkeyless (TKL) keyboards for their compact size and mechanical switches. Razers Huntsman Tournament Edition TKL goes a step further by including optical switches. Optical switches have fewer moving parts than mechanical switches and actuate by a beam of light passing through them when the key is pressed. The main advantages of optical switches are faster response times and a longer lifespan compared to conventional mechanical switches.

Apart from the innovative switches, the Huntsman Tournament Edition TKL has outstanding build quality. It has a sturdy aluminum top plate and a detachable USB-C cable. The keys are made from double-shot PBT plastic, which is resistant to fading and has better durability than ABS plastic. 

Monitor

Alienware AW2518H

FaZe Jarvis uses the Alienware 25 AW2518H. This monitor is no longer the fastest, but it can still compete with many current monitors. It features a 25-inch twisted nematic (TN) panel with 1080p resolution and a 240Hz refresh rate. The AW2518H also has a one-millisecond response time and built-in G-Sync compatibility. 

Like most Alienware products, the AW2518H uses the companys Legend design language. It has a two-tone finish, with the front having a matte black finish and the back boasting a gray finish with discrete RGB lighting. Connectivity options include a DisplayPort 1.2, an HDMI 1.4 port, and a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack. Theres also one upstream USB port going to the PC and three downstream USB ports to connect other devices.

As its name suggests, the Xbox Elite Wireless is a top-of-the-range controller that works on many devices, including Xbox consoles, Android devices, as well as iOS and Windows operating systems. While it resembles the regular Xbox controllers, the Elite differentiates itself by having blacked-out buttons and silver trim. 

One of the standout features of the Elite Wireless is its swappable parts. Many parts on the controller are interchangeable, and it comes with six spare thumbsticks, two D-pads, and four paddles. Users can also remap the buttons and set different profiles using the Elite app. While some suppliers might have the Xbox Elite Wireless in stock, most are already selling the newer Series 2 version. 

Webcam

Logitech Brio Ultra HD

FaZe Jarvis uses the Logitech Brio Ultra HD to record his videos. This webcam can record up to 4K UHD at 30 frames per second (fps). Users can also record at full HD 1080p at 30 or 60fps or at 720p in 90, 60, and 30fps. The Brio Ultra HD also offers three fields of view, including 65, 78, and 90 degrees diagonal, and it has a five times HD zoom function.

Sound quality is just as important as picture quality when recording, and the Brio Ultra HD features two noise-canceling omnidirectional microphones to keep voices sounding clear. 

One of the more advanced features of the Brio Ultra HD is the facial recognition technology that works with Windows Hello to add another level of security.

GPU

Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080TI-O11G

The Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080TI-O11G was one of the top-of-the-range GPUs until the newer 30 series came out. Despite using Nvidias older Turing architecture, the RTX 2080TI-O11G is still powerful enough to run demanding games and handle 4K resolution and ray tracing.

To handle the intensive graphics of modern games, the RTX 2080TI-O11G has 11GB of GDDR6 memory and a base clock speed of 1,350MHz that reaches 1,665MHz when overclocked. Theres also no shortage of connectivity options with two DisplayPort 1.4 ports, two HDMI 2.0 ports, and a USB-C port. 

CPU

Intel Core i9-9900K

Like the RTX 2080TI-O11G, the i9-9900K is a top-of-the-range component from an older generation. Intel processors may be on the 11th generation now, but the ninth generation i9-9900K still has what it takes to push plenty of games with ease. 

This CPU operates at 3.60GHz and can overclock to 5.00GHz. It also has an eight-core processor with 16 threads. While the Core i9-9900K is still available, it uses the older LGA 1151 socket, so its not compatible with the latest LGA 1200 motherboards. 

Microphone

Audio-Technica AT2020USB+

Audio-Technicas AT2020USB+ is a popular microphone used by streamers like FaZe Jarvis, Dubs, and ImperialHal. As a cardioid condenser microphone, the AT2020USB+ is designed for voice capture and filtering out background noise. The mic does this by picking up the sound directly in front of the microphone and disregarding the other directions. Another advantage of the AT2020USB+ is its steel construction that increases its durability.

Unlike some microphones that work with an XLR connection, the AT2020USB+ has a USB connection that works better with PCs. Its easy to connect and works with a wide range of audio programs.
