  1. AMD is offering a 16 core Threadripper to a few of Intel's 40th Anniversary winners https://www.tomshardware.com/news/intel-amd-sweepstakes-8086k-threadripper-1950x,37320.html If I won an i7-8086K I'd take the Threadripper swap deal, then resell the Threadripper to buy other hardware.
  2. Some asshole from argentina named immergefickt989809 spent the entire battle following me around and trying to push me out into enemy fire in my heavy tank and shot me with his TYpe 4. I have no idea who the player is. They weren't in any of my previous battles today. I have no idea why this asshole singled me out and had a hard on for me for the entire battle. http://wotlabs.net/na/player/immergefickt989809 Filing a ticket with Wargaming support will be 100% useless I'm sure.
  3. I was in the same situation. I was waiting for the white TG R6 or the white PC-011 Dynamic. I thought both would look good with my Asus motherboard which is white and grey digi camo. Then Newegg put the black TG R6 on sale for $119.99 with free shipping. The glass is so dark on my R6 that having a white case wouldn't matter unless I added a more lights than what comes with the AIO cooler and graphics card.
  4. I haven't see anything on the various hardware forums I go to mentioning this. What is the sample size? People I've seen on the forums who recently bought 8700K's are getting good overclocking results. No different than before.
  5. Depending on what source you go by, 80-85% of 8700K's can hit 5.0 GHz on all cores. I'm not sure if binning is required for a 1 or 2 core 5.0 GHz overclock.
  6. The i7-8086K is now on sale. Its an 8700K that has a 5 GHz single core bosot speed. MSRP is about $425 US. However for less than $425 US you can buy a delidded and binned i7-8700K that does 5 GHz on all cores. https://ark.intel.com/products/148263/Intel-Core-i7-8086K-Processor-12M-Cache-up-to-5_00-GHz https://www.anandtech.com/show/12940/intels-core-i78086k-cpu-now-on-sale 8700K delidded and guaranteed tod o 5 GHz: https://siliconlottery.com/collections/all/products/8700k50g I'd like to see how well the 8086K overclocks on all cores. A representative from Intel claimed
  7. I'd say its a lot more than a minimal number of users. Depending on who's sales stats you believe, Premiere has 50-75% of the professional and semi pro video editing market. Premiere also is the most pirated video editing programs on torrent sites. So its going to have a major effect on many people. The update also probably made the 8700K one of the best bang for the buck CPUs when it comes to video editing.
  8. I've been keeping track of tank and battle stats since 1.01.  So far 75% of my tier 8 tank battles have been tier 10(bottom tier) 3/5/7 battles.  Tier 8 really is getting fucked over by the low server population.

    1. hiipanda


      is it because of frontline?

    2. Bavor


      It started before frontline mode was available.

    3. Deliberate


      I don't know, I've seen more top tier games in tier 8s since Frontline was introduced. 

      Tier 10 3-5-7 games are a lot more tier 8 demanding than Tier 8 top tier games and with the absence of many Tier 8s they can only really make Tier 8 top tier games.

  9. I get it for $40/year through a vendor on reddit /r/microsoftsoftwareswap/ Its not the clock speed that is giving Intel CPUs the big increase in performance with the latest update.
  10. ...with Adobe Premiere after the latest update that uses the iGPU on the processor for hardware acceleration. I wonder if other video encoding software will get a similar update? I updated Premiere CC today to the latest version, but I don't have any big projects to test with and without the iGPU hardware acceleration yet. I'd like to see an 8700K vs a 12700x.
  11. This was the easiest three mark. I played one battle a while ago after not playing the tank for a very long time. I guess nobody plays the Tiger any more?
  12. Watch out for a player named frankieV702. He is using an illegal reload mods and even said it in chat. If he is using that illegal mod, he probably is using other illegal mods also. Obviously those mods help him so much and turn him into a unicum!
  13. 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

  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. I thought Anandtech and Tom's Hardware were owned by the same company now.
  17. 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
  18. 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/
  19. 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 th
  20. 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.
  21. 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.

  22. 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.
  23. 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 f
  24. 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.

    1. Bavor


      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???

    2. hazzgar


      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.
