NICKMERCS SETUP [2022] | Streaming, Gaming, And PC Build

Nickmercs is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch. He’s also considered one of the best Battle Royale Players in the world having dominated in games like Fortnite and Warzone.

Below I go over Nickmercs’s latest gaming/streaming setup, from monitors to chairs, so you can see what makes him such a legend in the industry.

What Is Nickmercs Setup?

Here is the list of Nickmercs latest setup for both streaming and gaming:

Now let’s dive into each of these items a bit more so you can better understand why Nickmercs uses what he does.

What Monitor(s) Does Nickmercs Use?

NICKMERCS uses 4 monitors for his setup. For gaming and desktop use he uses 2, Alienware 25 Gaming Monitors – AW2518Hf. For chat and other programs he uses an Alienware AW3420DW and a Dell UltraSharp U4919DW 49 inch Dual QHD Curved Monitor.

This monitor is one of the most popular among competitive gamers because of its high refresh rate (240 Hz) and low response time (1m or less).

Having higher refresh rates helps to reduce screen tearing and a low response time means your game will feel much smoother and more responsive to the moves you make.

Alienware is one of the most recognized brands when it comes to gaming and it’s no wonder a competitive gamer like Nickmercs uses them. It’s the perfect monitor for anyone who is serious about gaming.

The other wide screen monitors are used for reading chat. If you have seen Nickmercs stream then you know he gets a TON of chatters and so it makes sense to have wide screen monitors to help him keep up.

What Headset Does Nickmercs Use?

Nickmercs uses the Astro A50 Wireless Gaming Headset paired with the MixAmp Pro to help improve the sound quality of the headset.

Nick has talked several times on his stream how much he likes Astro headsets and how he has been using them ever since he can remember. In fact, he likes them so much that he decided to partner with them in 2019 and use their headsets exclusively.

As far as the headsets themselves, they are some of the best out there, especially for gaming. Many competitive gamers who use headsets choose Astro because of the amazing quality.

And last but not least, if you are into content creation like Nickmercs, the MixAmp Pro pairs perfectly with the A50s.

The MixAmp Pro allows you to even further customize the sound from your headset giving you a smoother, more crisp sound when you are streaming or creating a Youtube video. That is one of the reasons why Nickmercs uses it.

What Controller Does Nickmercs Use?

NICKMERCS uses the SCUF Infinity 4PS Pro MFAM controller with two paddles in the back and a wired connection. Although Nickmercs has been using Scuf controllers for close to 10 years, he only became a partner in 2019 when they released a special controller dedicated to the MFAM.

Scuf controllers are a great choice for anyone who plays on controller because they allow you to easily customize the controller to your liking. You can add extra paddles, add grips, adjust thumbstick size, etc., etc.       

The special MFAM controller is only available on Scuf’s website, but you can check out more items from Scufgaming here on Amazon. If you are on controller then you should definitely look into them.

What Camera Does Nickmercs Use?

NICKMERCS uses Logitech Brio 4K Webcam featuring Ultra 4K HD Video, HD Light Correction, Wide Field View and much more.

For several years Nickmercs used the Logitech C922 Pro (view here on Amazon), but as his stream has grown his equipment has improved greatly and he no longer uses the Logitech C922 Pro for streaming.

Although the Logitech C922 webcam is still a quality webcam, the Brio is wildly considered the best webcam on the market today and is much cheaper than a regular DSLR camera. It’s perfect for anyone interested in streaming.

What Mic Does Nickmercs Use?

Nickmercs does not use a typical microphone when he streams. Instead, he uses the Astro A50 Wireless Gaming Headset paired with the MixAmp Pro as a mic.

What Mouse Does Nickmercs Use?

NICKMERCS uses the Logitech G Pro wireless mouse. Although Nickmercs games primarily on controller, if he ever does game with a mouse, or if he is making adjustments to his stream, the Logitech G Pro wireless mouse is the mouse he uses.

It has an ergonomic ambidextrous design for comfortable control and several extra buttons that you can map controls to. It’s a great option for those who game on mouse and keyboard.

What Mouse Pad Does Nickmercs Use?

Nickmercs uses the Logitech G640 Cloth Gaming Mousepad. Although Nickmercs games primarily on controller, if he ever does game with a mouse, or if he is using a mousepad to adjust things on his stream, the Logitech G640 Cloth Gaming Mousepad is the mousepad he uses.

Logitech G640 Cloth Gaming Mousepad

This mousepad is great for gamers because it is soft, reducing friction when flicking your mouse, and it has a large surface area for those large mouse movements that can occur in gaming.

What Keyboard Does Nickmercs Use              

NICKMETRCS uses Logitech G PRO Mechanical Keyboard. Although Nickmercs games primarily on controller, if he ever does game with a keyboard, or if he is making adjustments to his stream, the Logitech G Pro Mechanical Keyboard is the keyboard he uses.

This keyboard was built specifically for gamers, but it is also aesthetically pleasing. With the ability to change key colors, as well as what keys light up and which ones will not, it pairs nicely with any gaming/streaming setup.

What Capture Card Does Nickmercs Use?

NICKMERCS uses the AVerMedia Live Gamer 4K – 4Kp60 HDR Capture Card. This capture card is one of the best in the streaming industry and works well for streamers who use a dual PC setup like Nickmercs uses.

This capture card is a monster as it is capable of capturing up to 240 frames per second (fps) and can record in 4k too. Not to mention the customizable RGB lights that come along with it.

This is one of the best capture cards for anyone who streams or records gameplay on consoles or for anyone who utilizes a dual PC setup while they stream and record.

What PC Case Does Nickmercs Use?

NICKMERCS uses a custom NZXT H510 ATX Mid-Towe PC Gaming Case. His custom PC case also has RGB lights surrounding the case and his Spartan logo (MFAM logo) printed on the side of the case.

Nickmercs Custom PC

NZXT makes some of the best PC parts and so it’s no surprise this PC case is widely considered one of the best. It’s compact and has its own RGB lights built in.

Of course, if you want the MFAM logo printed on the side, or if you want those extra RGB lights that he has outlining his case, you will have to pay for those things separately.

What Motherboard Does Nickmercs Use?

NICKMERCS uses the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro Motherboard. When you have a powerful PC build like Nickmercs, it is important to have a powerful motherboard to go along with it.

Having a good motherboard will make your game play more responsive and helps to load games faster as well. And the Auros Pro is a very good motherboard if you are into both gaming and streaming.

Choosing the right motherboard will help you get the most out of your processor and GPU. The Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro Motherboard supports Ryzen 9, Ryzen 7, and Ryzen 5 processors.

The motherboard’s emphasis on heat management means your system will stay cool, even when playing demanding games.

What Processor Does Nickmercs Use?

NICKMERCS uses an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X for his streaming PC and an Intel Core i9-9900K Desktop Processor for his gaming PC.

Both the Ryzen 9 and the Intel i9 are two of the top processors when it comes to PCs. If you are using your PC for multiple things such as streaming, gaming, Discord, and more then it is important to have a fast processor.

A processor is basically the brain of the computer and a slow processor could cause your PC to lag or even shut down if it is unable to keep up with the tasks you are asking it to do.

And given how much the processor is asked to compute, it’s important to have a quality cooling system as well so that way it does not overheat.

What Graphics Card Does Nickmercs Use?

NICKMERCS uses the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Graphics Card. This graphics card is the best graphics today when it comes to PC gaming.

With this graphics cards you will be able to play any game without having to worry about adjusting your settings to meet what your PC is capable of.

With that being said, this graphics card is very expensive and is very difficult to find. Many top streamers, such as Nickmercs, were able to obtain this graphics card because of the connections they have.

However, for the casual gamer/streamer, it may be hard to come by and even afford.

What RAM Does Nickmercs Use?

NICKMERCS uses T-Force Delta RGB DDR4 32GB RAM for his streaming PC and T-Force Delta RGB DDR4 16GB for his gaming PC. Given the amount of gaming that Nickmercs does it is important to have a sufficient amount of RAM in order for the games to run smoothly.

Not only is T-Force high quality RAM, they also come with customizable RGB lighting to match any look that you are trying to achieve. Oh, I did I mention they also come with a life time warranty? You can’t go wrong with T-Force.

What PC Cooling Does Nickmercs Use?

Nickmercs uses the NZXT Kraken Liquid Cooler and NZXT RGB Fans in order to cool both his streaming and gaming PCs. With so many high performing components in his PC it is important to have a high quality cooling unit.

If you are using a standard gaming PC then cooling it with fans should work just fine. But if you plan on using some of the high quality tech that we have touched on above then a good cooling unit is crucial.

If your computer overheats it will not work properly and could possibly be damaged if it gets hot enough.

What Power Supply Does Nickmercs Use?

Nickmercs uses the Seasonic FOCUS Plus 850 Gold Power Supply.

What Soundproofing Does Nickmercs Use?

In Nickmercs streaming room in Michigan he uses custom made, hexagon shaped sound proofing panels. In his streaming room in Florida he does not use any kind of sound proofing, although he does have have nicely designed 3D panels in the background.

In Michigan, his custom made hexagon shaped panels look similar to these sound proofing panels on Amazon, but instead they are custom made and designed.

What Chair Does Nickmercs Use?

NICKMERCS uses a Steelcase Gesture Office Chair. The chair is not built for gamers necessarily, but it still provides excellent support for those who are seated for long hours at a time.

This chair is built for long hours of use and so if you intend to be seated while streaming or gaming for long periods of time then you may want to give this chair a look.

What Desk Does Nickmercs Use?

Nickmercs uses a custom built desk in his gaming studio in Michigan; however, in Nickmerc’s Florida streaming room he uses a large, normal looking office desk.

What Lights Does Nickmercs Use?

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

El Gato 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 Nickmercs Use To Stream?

Nickmercs uses Streamlabs Prime to stream. Not only was Nickmercs featured on the Streamlabs website at one point, you can also see Cloudbot (Streamlabs chat bot) engaging with viewers on his stream.

Streamlabs Prime is my preferred streaming software as well. It is so easy to use and offers amazing features such as multi-streaming and free overlays. If you want to learn more about Streamlabs Prime then check out my article here.

Besides the equipment listed above, here are some other things that Nickmercs uses on his streams:

Nickmercs uses a custom made NZXT PC. Rather than purchasing a pre-built PC, Nickmercs prefers to have his PCs custom made since he is constantly changing and upgrading both his stream and gaming PCs.

How Much Is Nickmercs PC Worth?

Both Nickmercs’s gaming PC and streaming PC are worth over $8,000 a piece. That means that both his gaming PC and his streaming PC are worth over $16,000 combined.

However, although his gaming/streaming setup is pricey, it does not even compare to the cost of his gaming/streaming studio in Michigan.

Nickmercs’s custom made gaming/streaming studio in Michigan cost over $300,000 to build. This included parts, construction, materials, and labor.

What Org Is Nickmercs A Part Of?
