      How much is the ISU130 worth these days?

      0 anything and a lot of pain

      I woulda put it at like $200 USD myself, until they sold it on SEA server...

      might be still worth similar on NA but not on sea

    SEA CW is ded

    What's interesting is that WoT is still one of the most played games (although it's obviously on the EU/RU server). Here's an interesting stat that I found the other day: WoT was actually played more last year than CSGO, which is actually a huge surprise there- I'm not sure where they get their numbers from as it comes off as almost unbelievable, but if it's true it shows that the game after all the years of fuck ups STILL has a chance of coming back if the company pulled a full 180 and started doing things correctly, and that means finding a way to boost the amount of players who play in NA/SEA (in which they tried that at one point by sponsoring bigger streamers for a day or two (like DrDisrespect) but it had 0 effect in reality). But we all know that's never going to happen, so gg. EDIT: I cannot read as the website seems to show who's actually signed up/bought the game, which would explain why it's over other games seeing as WoT is free and all, but 12.3 million players is still immense.

    I miss CW, it was still fun fighting top clans even after 2.0 but I do regret not being good enough at the time to participate in the huge old wars that happened in Europe/early North America. Honestly though, can anyone else name a game that's been run into the ground harder than WoT? And no, WoW and AW do not count.

    The fact that fabunil was able to ride that for more than a single post deserves some kind of award.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Would definitely disagree with the 340 pen. HEAT claim. You do not need that much pen to be able to bully scrubs in corridors, and there's not many heavies with that much HEAT pen to begin with, even at tier 10- that's one thing I remember, and if there's anything I know and can discuss about this game still, it's brawling. Not only that, but something you have to realize with heavy play/carrying is that you don't necessarily need mobility to carry, just smart positioning. I could play the Maus 100 times and lose only 5-6 games max. because I was simply too slow to do something. Same goes with the Type 4/5 or the old VK B (before the stupid nerf); Also, if anyone is HE'ing your sides while you're in a super heavy and you're losing brawls (even as the old VK which had poor side armor) and you're not facing a Type 4/5 or TD with a high caliber gun, you're angling terribly.

Very interesting, and I won't continue contributing to the list seeing as I'm outdated.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Damn, I’m actually sad the VK B had to get nerfed. Tank truly was good after the initial buffs, but I never thought of it as over powered or even close to deserving of a nerf. Now the braindead Jap heavies? Yes. That’s something that needs a nerf.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Even before this list gets finished it's already clear how the meta has shifted even for tier 9. Heavies seem to take priority over meds but at the same time some heavies that I feel dominated meta last time I actually bothered playing more than 10 games a month (that isn't in a shitty tier 6/7) aren't favored. Regardless, I'll give my input but I'm probably outdated here.

Unless this tank was nerfed last time I played it, this tank is a real hidden gem.

Tall(and stupid tumor), mediocre gun handling, made of paper and yet it has mediocre mobility, and honestly- just fuck this line in general - only redeeming quality was STB. WZ-111G FT: 14Emil II: 8AMX 50 120: 8 M103: 5 If I really am outdated in what I said, the next to do their list can void my votes. I don't feel like the tanks have changed, but I like these threads and I'm too lazy to get on WoT and actually check to see where I'm at with these tanks.
  8. I did that, and sadly I do have to remove every screw from the side/bottom of that board. It refuses to let me take it off without them all unscrewed, and all but 2 were able to be unscrewed. I haven't had the time the past week to mess with it, but hopefully within a day or two I can try again. Also yeah I love EVGA and I wouldn't mind another card from them. I had a 970 before I won the 980Ti and the 970 still has its warranty even though I sold it to my friend who already has sold it to someone else. If only WG gave me a warranty for this card.
  9. Update: So for right now I have a decent temporary fix, but I'm definitely going to try getting into that GPU again one more time before I say screw it (get it?) and buy another card. Keeping my room ice-cold with MSI Afterburner on keeps idling temps at a stable 50 c and at a max of 60-65 c in-game (so hey, no throttling but it's not the fix I want and keeping my room this cold blows). When it comes to the screws for the GPU- there's no way to get a pair of pliers to grip them, as the one near the DVI is level with the metal it's screwed into and the one directly on the board is so tight to the board that I don't even have a millimeter of screw to grab onto. I'll try getting a flathead and messing with the screw with that (I tried the rubberband trick the other day but I had no success with it). I'll update this thread again for anyone interested after I've tried getting the card open again. Picture was an hour or two outdated- the screw directly no the board is almost entirely stripped, but I'll keep at it. Good advice and I'll definitely look into it. Even if I get the board open and fixed I'll most likely still sell it/give it to a friend, so I'll keep this in mind.
  10. hopefully that works. There’s actually two screws that are stripped, the main small one in the picture and another near the DVI slot. I’ve contacted EVGA about a possible fix but I doubt it will happen, and I tried for an hour to get it out and it’s simply fucked at this point (picture is before I spent an hour trying to get it out and fucked it entirely). Out of utter frustration, I’m just going to buy a new card and give this one to a friend. Any one have a card they’d recommend? Was thinking a 1080 8GB Strix GPU by ASUS boosted to 1835 MHz.
  11. It’s the one I got from the Vegas Finals so I don’t think it was touched but it’s possible. I stripped the screw myself like a dickhead, but in all fairness, it is quite literally the only screw that wouldn’t come out and now I’m pretty boned. $600 screw ftw?
  12. Well as much as I would love to try out this solution, unless someone has a way for me to unscrew this stripped dot-sized screw I’m kinda fucked. EDIT: not sure if the picture is showing because I’m on mobile but basically one of the screws in the board has been completely stripped and I have no way of actually taking it out and changing the paste
  13. I haven't really used CPU Z that much, but I believe that's just the way it tracks it. If not that would be interesting, but from the website it seems like it just records it as a single channel. As for the seating they are seated in the 1/3 slot. Also trust me I value the help and nothing is stupid here, this stuff furthers my knowledge on PCs which in itself makes this pain in the ass worth it. Now I honestly didn't know I could do this. How would I go about actually doing something like this? This is the benchmark on Ultra for Heaven with both monitors, Discord, Spotify (nothing playing but I doubt it makes a difference), and Steam running. The results without the secondary monitor hardly make a difference, with the score being a little higher at 3919 but with the Min. and Max. FPS both being 1-2 FPS lower. At this point my mind is heading towards the GPU being the problem here. My idle temps without MSi Afterburner's custom fan speeds are terrible being around 70-75 degrees Celsius and 80-85 when I'm in a game, which shows why I would be dropping. With the modified fan speeds it idles at 50-55 and maxes out at 70-75 in-game. I'm going to heavy-dust the GPU later tonight and see if anything changes, but right now I'm almost positive it's the GPU causing the problems, which is definitely frustrating. EDIT: Also the benchmark says that the GPU has only 4GB of memory (unless I'm reading that incorrectly?) which is lower than what it reads in CPU Z. At this point I am confuse.
  14. Both monitors: (primary) (secondary) The primary monitor is able to scale to 2715 x 1527 but I keep it at its native resolution of 1920 x 1080. Speaking of resolutions, whenever I downscale (have only really done it with CS) I seem to get even worse performance, which honestly boggles my mind. I've even tried setting the native to whatever resolution I have set in CS and it just refuses to cooperate, so I force myself to play 1920 x 1080. I'll write more about the RAM in response to Folter's post Couple things, as I knew I would mess up in the information somewhere: 1) Yeah the PC is a tad bit random, some parts I moved over from the build you helped me with a couple years back along with some parts that I got for free (like the 980Ti two years ago), but I figured there shouldn't be any problems with the way that it's set up. 2) I very recently did a fresh reinstall of Windows 10 with no positive results, but that being said, I have not manually updated my BiOS since I built the PC and if it hasn't updated itself then that could be a huge thing there- simple yet obvious possibility for problems that I didn't think of (guess I didn't try EVERYTHING :P) 3) The RAM. I made a mistake in not saying that it's actually two sticks of 4GB, I actually tried to get an 8GB stick (Corsair vengeance series) and the motherboard refused to register it, and after looking it up I believe the motherboard will not accept anything over 4GB of RAM in a single slot (16GB max. with 4 slots, I'm obviously only filling 2 though). Not only that, but I definitely forgot to mention that when I last moved my PC I had a problem with one of the sticks unseating itself and causing an immense amount of problems such as the PC going into auto repair mode, automatically shutting on and off, etc. This could easily be another problem that is degrading my performance. I'll try the benchmarks later tonight when I get the chance. As I said to Assassin, my GPU is running extremely hot when idle for some odd reason, but using MSI Afterburner with a custom scale for the fans seems to keep it at a decent temperature (it sits at 70 when only running chrome and a few other minor programs, but at 50 or lower when I have the fans scaled correctly). I figure this might be my biggest problem seeing as the 980Ti will throttle itself when it gets to one of those higher temps. Also mandatory thank you to all the dudes who've posted in this thread thus far. I definitely appreciate all the help and hopefully we can get this all figured out soon.
  15. You see that's what I'm saying. I have a pretty decent understanding of PCs at this point and I honestly can't see where I would be bottlenecking here. CPU temps are perfect when I play games, as it never goes above 40 degrees Celsius when I'm playing my most demanding games. Now that you've mentioned it though, I realized my GPU is sitting at a nasty 72 when I'm on Chrome and that's it. Could this be because of my monitors, or would it be something as simple as dusting it out as much as possible (although it's not that dusty to begin with)? Yeah it is poorly optimized, but I have a friend who has computer parts that are legitimately 4+ years old and my PC should out-perform him in every scenario and yet he runs the game at a playable level. I mean fuck, I don't think the game is so poorly optimized to the point where I can't get into a gun fight for more than 2 seconds without dropping down to a staggering 40 frames. Like, what the fuck? I've already refunded the game, but it was one of the best examples I had. In all honestly those new cards look juice as fuck, but I REALLY did not want to spend money upgrading here, especially when I'm running a 980 Ti- and unless I'm completely wrong about this (which I could be), this card should run every game I play without a problem. I always had in mind that the CPU and MoBo (as well as the RAM soon enough, as I'm starting to see more and more games suggesting you have it and builds consisting of it) would be first in line to require upgrading- and unless I have to spend the money to get a playable performance, I rather not.
