  1. How long ago did cowboyofbebop sell his account?  I saw him in battle recently and it wasn't him from the playstyle. Also his recent stats took a nosedive.

      A stats nosedive doesn't mean it's not him. Zeven is also playing WAAAAY below his level

  2. New build

    I delidded my overclocked 6700K with the rockit 88 kit. It was pretty easy and dropped temps by 10-20 degrees C depending on the test. What is the warranty on the 8700K? Some of my old Intel CPUs had 10 year warranties, but it seems that newer Intel CPUs have shorter warranties. If you don't overclock the 8700K should easily last 5+ years. However the temps may increase at the TIM dries up. If you plan to keep it much longer than the warranty period, delidding it may help.
  3. AMD (Ry)Zen

    I remember seeing one of the popular US or Canada computer hardware Youtubers doing a NVMe vs NVMe RAID array comparison with 4K video editing on a high end i9/x299 water cooled system. The end result was a minimal difference on 10+ minute 4K videos. I personally haven't seen a huge difference in working with 1440p and 4K video on my system when going from a SATA 6 GB/s SSD to a NVMe SSD. The only difference is moving files around. I may be limited by having a 4 core 8 thread CPU and maybe a 10+ core CPU would show a difference.

    I thought Anandtech and Tom's Hardware were owned by the same company now.

    I noticed some reviews were heavily slanted to AMD and using mostly games that do well with Ryzen. Both of these reviews seem to give similar results in their average over multiple games and don't seem biased to one processor or another. If your main purpose is gaming, you can't go wrong with an 8700K
  6. Sadly, if you have a player named duane101 on your team he will be less useful than a bot. He said he is, "mad at Wargaming for messing something up on his account" so he goes and parks in a useless spot and doesn't shoot the entire battle to ruin the game for others instead of getting the issue resolved with Wargaming support. https://worldoftanks.com/en/community/accounts/1006811056-duane101/

    I have a feeling that test wasn't done with similar or identical systems. In some of their charts the results are obviously GPU limited. Many results are within the margin of error for testing. Also there were several charts missing the 8700K results. Why is that? Was it not tested or did it win by a large margin and was not included? Most modern game engines still show diminishing returns past 4 or 6 threads. It will be a few years until they can take full advantage of the 8 cores/16 threads of Ryzen over the clock speed of Intel CPUs with less cores. The R7-1800x had about the same performance as the i7-3770K in most games when it was released. I wonder how much of an improvement the 2700x is since its mostly a clock speed increase and not a major design change. I'm guessing in the games that can't take advantage of the 8 cores/16 threads it will be about the same as an i7-6700K.
  8. The player named ConfirmedSerialTKer lives up to his name. He was in a M103 and he intentionally pushed my RRU 251 out form behind cover so the enemy TD's could kill me. Then he laughed about it in chat. His platoon mate in a T95 said he name comes with a warning and I should have known better when he drove up behind me.
  9. I played a bunch of battle in the Rhm with the 150mm recently.  18 of my 24 shots were low rolls not counting shots that killed enemy tanks.  A large percentage of them were extremely low rolls below 675 HP of damage.  RNG definitely seems broken.  I use to enjoy the Rhm, but not much any more.

    Its probably not "any day now" because that was very hopeful speculation. Nvidia can't release the next gen GPUs for retails ale until DDR6 reaches full scale production this summer. Nvidia supposedly stopped production of the 10X0 GPUs already to start production of the next generation GPUs.

    I've had many bad experiences with Gigabyte's RMA and warranty process over the years so I stopped buying their products. I made the mistake of giving them another chance a couple years ago and lost about $190+shipping because of it. I'd stick with EVGA, ASUS, and MSI for Nvidia GPUs. Stay away from the MSI Armor series though. Most of them have inadequate cooling. The good news is GPU prices are dropping again due to the drop in cryptocurrency pricing. GTC 1060's are $330-$350 new. They were $400-$500 a couple months ago. If you find something used to hold you over for a few months, Nvidia is supposedly announcing their new GPUs that use DDR6 this summer. There are some good resources on used GPUs
  12. I hate the days when RNG doesn't seem random at all.  I fired 9 shots with my tier 8 rhm using the 150mm  in a two battles today.  None were shots that killed a vehicle.  7 of the 9 shots were low rolls.  Not a little bit low, but really low.  7 of the 9 shots were 674 damage or less.  WTF RNG?  The other two weren't great high rolls to make up for it.  They were 767 and 764.  WTF RNG?  Way to fuck me over.

      Just did another battle.  I had one shot that was a kill shot for 88 HP.  My other two shots did less than 650 HP of damage each. WTF RNG???

      RNG doesn't work like that. The damage has to be average for all players. You may be a very unlucky outlier where 90% of your shots are low rolls. 

  13. I've only heard good things about them. Most of them seem overbuilt, but they are marketed toward overclockers and enthusiast. Gamers Nexus reviewed a few of their boards aimed at overclockers and said the components are beyond what anyone would need for air or liquid cooling. Also, most EVGA boards support Intel engineering sample CPUs without BIOS hacks. THey were popular among the people who would buy ES Xeon CPUs off of eBay. The main disadvantage to them is their are priced a little higher compared to a MSI or ASUS board with the same features.
  14. Watch out for a player named D3vilNBlue. I was on Fjords in my light tank spotting form a bush. He drive up right next to me, gets lit, gets me shot, blocked me from moving back, and gets me shot again. When I called him out on it he told me to get over myself. Then made some personal threats. He also told me he would put me on his "hitlist." His clan's profile says, "Be willing to learn, not be a jerk, have a good attitude, and team play." I'm shaking in my boots now with hsi 1000 WN8 recents. He can kill everyone on his hit list easily!
  15. I guess that's why I haven't seen him stream recently.
