  1. Thanks guys. Been really pissed with this development. Not sure if office would reimburse the repairs in any case (sigh). What qualifies as an external sound card though? Will this work *link posted below* ? Was hoping there would be one on the cheap (like 10 USD or below) http://www.lazada.com.ph/usb-sound-card-71-1227870.html?ff=1
  2. Damn then Do you have any suggestions on what I can get? (Also, can you just ask a repair shop to replace the souncard itself for a fee?)
  3. Hello. I recently plugged in my laptop to a sound system in a hotel. My laptop suddenly made continuous popping sounds through the audio device. When I unplugged the speakers, the laptop kept making the continuous popping sound. When I plug in other devices, the poping sound transfers there. The sound starts when windows fully loads up and doesn't stop even if I mute the audio device. It only stops when I disable the audio driver (realtek) in device managers or boot in safe mode.I have tried everything from DPC latency checker to see if there's any interference (nothing shows up), updating and reinstalling sound driver (REALTEK) and the sound remains. Does anyone have suggestions for this issue? Thank you. Update: DPC Latency Checker is currently measuring a latency of 1000 us (yellow bars) Laptop is an Asus TP300L btw.
  4. KV-5 is jealous.
  5. That would actually be quite an interesting option. The base AP round already has an absurd amount of pen. Sacrificing a bit of that for improved damage seems like a great tradeoff but I fear that would take the DPM of this thing to dangerously high levels.
  6. Well, for one the thing still has decent DPM (roughly 2600). Second, it will definitely not be penned by HE rounds with that armor. I found out from SS's blog that the 103 does in fact have a fully rotating turret. The gun is the same 130mm gun on the SU-100Y (but probably fires better ammunition to have this level of pen).
  7. Well gents, it looks like a new Russian premium TD is coming our way. Has disgustingly high penetration and surprisingly decent armor and speed to boot. (Soviet bias anyone?) Still, would reserve judgement until soft stats and other relevant info (like engine power) is shown... At least it's not another clone I guess? EDIT: As per SS's blog, this thing does have a fully rotating turret.

  8. With changes coming to mediums, I'd argue that the safest choice would be the RU HT line. You get: 1) a competitive tier X which is CW compatible 2) the king of T8 heavies (which many argue is actually tier 8.5) 3) a decent SH tank at T6 (RIP OP KV-1S) 4) A pretty fun Tier V. Basically, the entire line is pretty good with the only purely average tank being the IS . if you're looking for something with a higher skill cap then ofc the RU med line is fine (2 tier Xs grindable thru one line)
  9. A new video from WG has come online discussing arty. In it they demonstrate that arty has its damage significantly lowered - it can no longer one-shot full HP vehicles or even deal the killing blow to heavily armored tanks as well. In exchange, their attacks gain a stun effect that renders vehicles inoperable for a certain amount of time depending on a variety of factors. I know this has been implemented before in the first iteration of the sandbox changes but I think they did some refinements. See for yourself: [flash=] [/flash] Personal Comment: While the idea that vehicles won't be one-shot anymore is refreshing... I can see a whole new wave of arty-hate and raging these changes will bring. The ability to disable a tank out in the open without any counterplay (for example. using a repair kit to fix a disabled track or engine) sounds overpowered. You might not one-shot enemies anymore, but you're sure as hell condemning them to death due to being out of position. I think this promotes camping as being disabled while in cover while taking minimal HE damage is a helluvalot safer than being stunned while moving into position. EDIT: So apparently, first aid kits remove stun effects and are reusable... interesting.
  10. if you look VERY closely - the dshk on the turret of the middle T-44 is slightly skewed upwards. That TOTALLY makes it a different tank
  11. Well, it boiled down to getting a XFX RX 480, Sapphire RX 480 or a Palit GTX 1060 Jetstream (which was 20 USD more expensive). I settled with this one because of the advice on the thread and the size of the card (I only belatedly realized that my case could only handle cards with length up to 290mm). As per @folterknecht suggestion, got a good PSU to power the card. (I hope that 520 watts is sufficient...). Thanks for all the help guys. Card is running smoothly and am getting 120 fps on WoT with everything turned up (Time to test other games as well...)
  12. Taken from: https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2016/12/19/new-stats-of-tier-x-lights-partial/ Photos of the tank in the link Apparently, the light tanks of most nations will be extended to Tier 10. French, German, RU and American tier VIII LTs get bumped up a tier. Chinese T8 stays the same. Partial stats below. Initial observation: Accuracy is pretty meh (perhaps indicative of changes in accuracy being tested behind the scenes) and ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?

  13. Thanks for this list. Visited a few accessible stores in my area but they all seem to be out of the RX 480. Only XFX GTR Black was availble (285 USD). In the 1060 front, only Zotac's Mini was in stock. Will have to visit the warehouse of the stores to check availability sometime this week. I am hoping to get the Gigabyte RX 480 in the list (if it remains available). If not, might be stuck with either the Sapphire Nitro or XFX GTR. Leaning towards the XFX as the nitro seems to run hot and loud according to a few reviews... Might still pick up a 1060 if there's a decent model for a good price.
  14. Those are very interesting figures, thanks! I do have a question though. The Phoenix GTX 1060 is priced at roughly 250 USD. The cheapest RX 480 (that doesn't use a blower fan) available here (Sapphire Nitro version) is 273 USD. Is it worth paying 20-25 dollars more for the RX 480 for the differences you mentioned?
  15. Really? The RX 480 8gb is better? I thought it went toe to toe with the GTX 1060 with the latter being cooler and quieter
