Without overclocking you should be able to stream at 720p, no issues at all. Put your bitrate to 1.5-2k, and set the buffer to 1/4th of what you have bitrate at. Get another speedtest from when you have 90 ms while streaming, just after turning the stream off and then testing. Remember to actual bitrate used will sometimes spike over the setting, making it higher than you'd expect sometimes.
@the guide, decent guide, some parts are decent, some are just blatantly wrong and misleading. For example, bitrate/buffer settings @ different connectionspeeds are just plain shit. If you have 2 mb/s set to bitrage, and 2.5 mb/s up as connection, if you get into a crowded situation with alot of effects it WILL spike over 2k, sometimes up to even 2.4-2.5 mb/s, fucking your connection over. You should always leave room for ~20% spikes while still having atleast ~500 up accounting to the spikes, e.g if you have 3 mb/s upload, you want it to be at ~2100 bitrate or so or lower to account for this.
"For example, my system has a Quad Core clocked at 2.7Ghz, 2.5mb/s upload rate, and 16:9 resolution, so I use 768x432 (16:9)."
If you set that up correctly, you could be streaming a fine 720p stream without lag, instead of a shitty 432p. My other computer has a quad core at 2.7 Ghz stock and I was running a smooth 720p stream on that one. With 1.8 upload.
System requirements are very bad, even if the suggestions are vague. 29 fps is the optimal setting to use. You also haven't mentioned that instead of lowering bitrate/resolution/quality if you start to lag, you can reduce fps to reduce the amount required by the system by the same %, 100>80 fps will mean it takes 20% less of your computer.
Sorry to say, but mediocre guide at it's best, falseleading people who doesn't know much about this in a few ways.
@the people saying it's a very good guide, please get a clue instead of tricking people this is actually a good guide, when it requires a substantial amount of changes to actually be a very good guide.
Thank you for the "correction" this is my first tutorial and it's really motivating to see people tryin to make it better.
As I said I based it on my friend configuration and mine (basic am3 one), with these settings it's actually work very good (i didn't get lag and it's smooth). I don't mentioned these things because when i read a tutorial i try on my way some others configuration and make the pros and cons about each of them to make what i am tryin to do better.
I take care about what you said and i'm gonna change/perfect these things when i get more time (actually send this message with my phone)
