Now that you know what CourageJD uses, keep reading so you know why he uses what he does and maybe even consider adding some of his gear to your setup.

What Monitor Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses three SAMSUNG Odyssey G7 Curved Monitors. He uses one monitor to game on, one monitor to read chat, and one monitor to do things like browse the web or check Discord.   

These SAMSUNG Odyssey G7 gaming monitors are high end gaming monitors that work very well for PC and console gaming.

The monitor is 27″, which seems to be the sweet spot for gaming, since larger screens are harder to track with your eyes.

The monitor boasts an excellent refresh rate of 240Hz which makes it ideal for performance gaming uses, such as FPS games. It has under 1ms response time, and is G-Sync compatible, which reduces stutter and lag.

The monitor has a sleek, all-black design with a glowing LED design in the back of the monitor.

One cool thing about this monitor is that you can change the color of the LEDs, allowing you to customize the lighting for your setup.

What Mouse Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the Razer DeathAdder Elite Mouse. The Razer DeathAdder Elite is mid-tier, wired gaming mouse. It has 7 programmable buttons and a max DPI of 16,000.

Depending on your style of gaming, this mouse may not have all the specs you’d want. It’s not wireless, and 16,000 DPI isn’t great, especially when competitors like the Logitech G mouses have a limit of 25,000 DPI.

What I like about this mouse though is that its lighting can be controlled by Razer’s Synapse software, which is great if you also have a Razer keyboard.

What Mouse Pad Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the Razer Gigantus: Ultra Large Mouse Pad. The Razer Gigantus: Ultra Large gaming mousepad stands out as a high quality gaming mousepad in a large, square format.

While many streamers these days use oversized mousepads that can fit a keyboard and mouse, this mousepad is a bit more traditional in that it’s meant only for a mouse.

The mousepad is about 17″x17″ and so it’s definitely on the large size, but not quite large enough to fit a keyboard.

The mousepad has a super minimalist design; it’s all black with the Razer logo in one corner. It’s the perfect gaming mousepad for your setup, especially if you have a Razer gaming mouse.

What Keyboard Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the Razer BlackWidow Chroma Keyboard. The Razer BlackWidow Chroma is a well-known gaming keyboard with fantastic specs.

If you weren’t aware, Razer was the first company to use mechanical switches on a gaming keyboard when they released the BlackWidow in 2010.

The keyboard features Razer’s Green Switches, which are known for their pleasant and distinct clicking sound.

The keyboard has n-key rollover, which means the pressing of each key is accurately registered, even if several keys are being pressed at the same time.

I like that this keyboard is a full-sized keyboard, because I tend to use my gaming keyboard for work. Sometimes it comes in handy to have a numpad, since it makes typing numbers much faster.

What Headset Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the Razer BlackShark V2 CourageJD Edition Headset. The Razer BlackShark V2 CourageJD Edition gaming headset is a custom-designed Razer BlackShark V2 headset made in collaboration with CourageJD.

The headset has custom CourageJD colors, a “Take Over” slogan on the outside of the ear cups, and custom insignia on the headband and inside of the ear cups.

This headset is wired, and connects to your PC via a 3.5mm jack or USB interface. Its microphone is removable, so it’s perfect for listening to music, watching movies, or gaming.

What Microphone Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the Shure SM7B Microphone and attaches it to a Road PSA1 Boom Arm. The mic is then connected to a GO XLR Audio Mixer and a Mackie ProFXv3 Series Mixer/Preamp which helps give him more customization and control over his audio.  

The Shure SM7B Microphone is a versatile microphone perfect for streaming, podcasting, or even recording music.

The microphone uses an XLR connection, which allows you to get the best quality possible while recording or streaming.

The microphone is a classic cardioid pattern microphone with uniform capture, so you’ll sound great at all angles.

Although this microphone is on the pricey side, costing hundreds of dollars, it is a very popular choice for professional streamers and broadcasters.

The Road PSA1 boom arm is also a very popular choice amongst content creators. It is considered the best boom arm out there because of how easy it is to move around and adjust.

Having used several boom arms myself I can say with confidence that it is indeed the best boom arm available today.

Lastly, the GO XLR and Mackie ProFXv3 audio mixers allow Courage to have better control over his audio.

The GO XLR is used mainly used to control the audio coming from different channels such as Discord, the game Courage is playing, and stream alerts that happen while he is streaming.

The Mackie mixer/preamp on the other hand is mainly used to improve the sound quality of his streams.

What Camera Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses a Sony a7R III Mirrorless Camera with a Sony FE 16-35mm Lens. He then pairs his camera with the Elgato Cam Link 4K and a dummy camera battery. The camera captures high quality video, the Cam Link transmits that video to the PC and the dummy battery powers the camera.  

Not only is the Sony a7R capable of capturing 4K video, but it has a very good sensor perfect for capturing video in low-light situations. 

The Sony a7R III Mirrorless Camera is very similar to the camera I use for streaming. In my opinion, mirrorless cameras, and especially Sony cameras, are the best option for capturing video while streaming.

What’s more, you’ll be able to use any e-mount lens with this camera, so you’ll have tons of setup options.

The lens that courage uses is definitely on the pricier side, but you don’t need that expensive of a lens in order to get good quality video while streaming.

What Capture Card Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the Elgato 4K 60 Pro Capture Card. The Elgato 4K 60 Pro capture card is an internal capture card that you must install in your rig via a PCIe slot. Typically, these internal capture cards have superior performance to their USB counterparts.

The capture card is capable of recording gameplay up to 4K 60fps with super-low-latency passthrough so that your gameplay performance will not be affected.

Elgato is one of the most recognized names in capture cards and streaming peripherals, and all of their capture cards come with great software.

At the moment, this is one of the best capture cards available on the market. It’s perfect if you use a dual PC setup or if you are looking to stream console games from your PC.

What PC Case Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the NZXT H700i PC Case. The NZXT H700i PC case is a mid-tower pc case with a compact design. The case comes with 4 fans, 2 RGB strips, and a tempered glass panel. Its minimalist style goes nicely with clean setups that have a black theme.

I like the cable management features on this case, and I think it’s one of the best looking cases I’ve seen. NZXT is also a very well respected brand when it comes to PC gaming.

What Mother Board Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the ASUS TUF Z690-Plus Gaming Motherboard. This ASUS TUF Z690-Plus gaming motherboard is a high-end motherboard that has WiFi 6, 7.1 channel audio, 4 SATA 3.0 ports, ARGB headers, and ASUS Aura RGB lighting management. It is a 12th gen Intel motherboard and it supports overclocking.

This gaming motherboard is perfect for premium rigs and anyone who is serious about gaming.

What CPU Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the intel core i9-12900k CPU. This intel core i9-12900k processor is currently the most powerful CPU on the market. It has a baseline speed of 3.2GHz and can reach up to 5.2GHz unlocked. While this processor technically has 16 physical cores, 8 of those are efficiency cores.

Efficiency cores have lower performance, but they are useful to offload background tasks from the performance cores, as efficiency cores consume less energy.

This architecture helps the processor use less power and achieve better resource management.

Despite its relatively high power consumption (and heat), this processor consistently benchmarks as one of the top processors on the market.

If you are planning on using your PC for CPU-intensive tasks, such as video encoding, then this processor is a wonderful choice.

What GPU Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 GPU. The EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 is EVGA’s graphics card release for the RTX 3090 GPU chipset. It has a whopping 24GB of GDDR6X VRAM with iCX3 Technology, and can handle all of the latest titles at max settings.

At the moment, the RTX 3090 chipset is the most powerful GPU on the market. Including this graphics card in your setup will give you the best gaming experience out there, including the potential for 8K gameplay.

Although this graphics card probably costs more than your PC, it can handle just about anything you throw at it.

This EVGA RTX 3090 ships with 3 DisplayPort interfaces and an HDMI port. If you are looking for the best GPU when you game, this is it.

What RAM Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series RAM. This GSKILL TridentZ RGB Series RAM is a popular choice for blazing fast DDR4 RAM. This particular set consists of 32GB of RAM capable of 3200MHz memory speed.

Since it has RGB lighting, you can customize the glow of the RAM sticks to match the appearance of your PC/gaming setup.

If you go with this RAM, make sure you have the right processor to get the most out of it. This RAM is optimized for Ryzen 2 and Intel Z270 and newer CPUs.

What Cooling Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the NZXT Kraken X62 280MM Cooling. This NZXT Kraken X62 280MM cooling system is a liquid CPU cooler with dual fans and some awesome visual features.

The cooler works by sending cool liquid into the cooler cap, which sits on top of the CPU. As the liquid over the CPU absorbs heat from the CPU, it is recycled out of the cap and cooled by the fans.

My favorite thing about the NZXT Kraken coolers is the LCD display on the cooling cap.

You can program the cap to display an image or a GIF in full-color, which makes for a nice effect if your rig has a glass panel on the side.

What Chair Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses the Herman Miller X G Embody Chair. This Herman Miller X G Embody Chair is as luxurious as gaming/office chairs come. In fact, this chair is so premium that, at around $1,900, it probably costs more than your entire gaming PC setup.

So, is it worth it? If you’re a professional streamer, then the answer may be yes. The chair is customizable in nearly every way, allowing you to adjust the seat depth, arms, chair height, backrest, and more.

If you can’t find a comfortable chair for gaming, then you may want to give this chair a try. You can customize it to fit your back perfectly, and potentially save yourself from back pain.

What Desk Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses a BEKANT 63″x31″ sit stand desk from IKEA. This desk is adjustable and has tons of room making it perfect for streamers who use lots of equipment when they stream.

I use this desk myself and I love it. It has a ton of room and adjusts up and down with ease. The down side is that this desk is only available at IKEA.

What Lights Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses two Elgato Key Lights, one on each side of his camera. The Elgato Key Lights are a popular choice amongst streamers not only because of their quality, but also because of how easily they pair with an Elgato Stream Deck.

If you have watched any of Courage’s streams recently then you know how well lit he is. No shadows or anything on his face and that is all because of these key lights.

Elgato creates some of the best equipment in the entire streaming industry. I use several of their products for my stream and I can attest, they are fantastic.

And given that most of their products can pair with the Stream Deck it makes controlling the equipment much easier.

If you are a streamer then you should definitely check out their lighting options as well as their Stream Deck.

What Software Does CourageJD Use To Stream?

CourageJD streams using the OBS software. He then uses the StreamElements bot to help him moderate his chat.

Other Gear Used By CourageJD?

The 50″ monitor hangs on the wall in front of Courage. He uses it more for watching things online than he does for things like gaming or reading chat.

What PC Does CourageJD Use?

CourageJD uses a custom built PC which includes a NZXT H700i PC Case, ASUS TUF Z690-Plus Gaming Motherboard, intel core i9-12900k CPU, EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 GPU, G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series RAM, and NZXT Kraken X62 280MM Cooling.

As you can tell, Courage’s PC is about as top of the line as you can get.

How Much Is CourageJD’s PC & Setup Worth?

CourageJD’s PC alone is worth an estimated $3,100. His entire streaming/gaming setup, including his PC, is worth an estimated $16,000. Lastly, his entire streaming/gaming room is worth an estimated $25,000 when you consider things like decorations and furniture in the room.

However, lucky for him, all these things were gifted to him by 100 Thieves and so he didn’t have to spend anything.

You can check out the video below if you want to see a tour of Courage’s setup. It is definitely one of the nicer setups in the streaming industry.
