For Sale – i5 3470 CPU, Asus P8 H77-M Pro Mobo & 8GB G.Skill 1600 RAM

My previous PC base is ready for sale.
It comes with all the boxes and manuals and I think the leads that it was supplied with.
You get

  • Asus P8 H77-M Pro motherboard
  • Intel Core i5 3460 CPU with Intel cooler (Cooler never used)
  • 8GB (2 x 4GB) G.Skill DDR 1600 RAM (F3-1600C9D-8GAO CL9-9-9-24 1.50v_

I’ve been running this for several years first as my gaming PC then moved it to a more general use/gaming PC, and was running PUBG, Overwatch and other games on it just fine when coupled with a 980Ti. It’s been a really solid base and would make an ideal start for a gaming PC for someone.

I’ll send it RMSD, included in price.

For Sale :

HP 860-008na VR Ready GTX980Ti i7 Gaming Pc

Due to news of a new arrival on the way I now have to clear the mancave to make way for a nursery. This PC was purchased end of December 2015. Its been used for about a year and then once I purchased my Xbox one it just got left unused. The Motherboard was replaced in October 2106 under warranty. At which point I purchased and extended warranty (that is transferable to the new owner) Which expires December 2018.
There are a few minor points of damage that have been pictured but other than those its a beautiful chassis and fast and future proof gaming setup that’s a very reluctant sale. The Pc is on windows 10.

A face to face meeting would be preferred so we can power up and have a visual inspection as its quite delicate to post. I do have the box in the loft aswell. Shipping isnt out of the question but due to its nature and value i would prefer to meet up.

(please note the picture showing the bang and olufson logo … that whole black part still has the protective plastic factory wrapping on it.)

So basically the pc comes with full 12 month warranty.

Any questions then please feel free to ask.

The future of networking technology is playing out right now

In the 2011 novel Ready Player One, author Ernest Cline offers his take on the future of networking technology: a dystopian United States in 2044, where everyone is plugged into a virtual world dubbed Oasis.

The protagonist, Wade Watts, is a network-savvy teen who discusses data center stacks, servers, bandwidth and security with the air of a wizened IT pro as he stays a step ahead of forces who are out to stop him (spoiler alert). The book also offers some hardcore ’80s pop culture nostalgia, for anyone into things like John Hughes movies and new wave music.

In this story, the only way to escape the dreary real world is to have a thorough understanding of the networked, virtual world. Today’s infrastructure is not to the point of plugging people in — at least not yet. But the future of networking technology is already underway, and, like Watts, IT managers must understand how all these evolving concepts will work together.

Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI), for one, is an intriguing peek into the future of networking technology. While still a small segment of the overall market, HCI brings together compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources in a single integrated platform. Storage management has fueled much of the rise in HCI, but today, IT managers are examining how it fits in with their overall cloud strategies.

Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN), meantime, continues to gain traction as enterprises examine new tools to connect their remote offices. But as WAN traffic grows, so do threats, and IT managers must determine the role SD-WAN security tools will play in helping them protect their WANs. New features like microsegmentation are promising, but more work needs to be done, analysts say.

Finally, enterprises might soon have the option of telling the network to fix itself through the use of intent-based networking (IBN). Using automation and policies, IBN could redefine how applications and services are delivered across networks, even as it ushers in evolutionary technologies.

How all of these developments combine to create the future of networking technology remains to be seen. But it’s certainly fun to read about.

In the meantime, network managers continue to find the best ways to manage their expanding networks and ensure enterprise users have the bandwidth and tools they need to get their jobs done. Read one IT pro’s story on how his company upgraded communications and bandwidth so it had the best network uptime possible.

GDPR requirements loom for Windows Server admins

The clock is ticking to get your Windows systems ready for the General Data Protection Regulation. To assist with…

these compliance efforts, Microsoft offers several resources to help systems administrators.

A European Union privacy law, GDPR goes into effect in May 2018 and signifies more wide-reaching ramifications for IT than other regulations. For example, while the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is relevant only to healthcare providers, most organizations must adhere to GDPR requirements. The regulation applies to any organization — including those based outside Europe — that processes, collects or stores data of EU citizens.

This sweeping data privacy regulation presents a compliance challenge for even the smallest companies. For example, if a U.S. company sells items from its website to an EU citizen, GDPR applies to that business. Even something minor, such as storing an EU citizen’s phone number on digital media, forces a company to either observe the rules or delete the data.

What is GDPR?

GDPR imposes stringent requirements on how businesses handle the personal data of EU citizens. GDPR will replace the EU’s Data Protection Directive, which only affected organizations with a physical presence in Europe.

The GDPR requirements state that “personal data is any information relating to an individual, whether it relates to his or her private, professional or public life. It can be anything from a name, a home address, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information or a computer’s IP address.”

Organizations subject to GDPR compliance rules will need to retain data processing records that show a strong effort has been made to observe the more than 100 GDPR requirements. Penalties for noncompliance go up to 20 million euros — about $24 million — or up to 4% of a company’s annual revenue, whichever is more.

How does Windows Server help with GDPR?

Although Windows Server 2016 does not have specific features related to GDPR, the OS has other functionality to protect organizations from a data breach.

For example, the Just Enough Admin and the Just in Time Admin features protect against overprivileged administrative accounts. If a business has one administrator whose main responsibility is Active Directory management, then this person usually gets full administrative privileges, even though they just need to perform one specific type of administrative task. The Just in Time Admin and Just Enough Admin features grant the permissions required for a specific task for a limited period of time. The IT department can add an additional layer of security by configuring Windows to validate the administrator’s identity through multifactor authentication before the request is granted.

Another security feature that can help with GDPR compliance initiatives is Windows Defender Credential Guard. New to Windows Server 2016, this feature uses a hypervisor to isolate authentication credentials to restrict access to privileged system software. A similar tool called Windows Defender Remote Credential Guard protects the credentials used for remote desktop sessions.

Windows Defender Device Guard is an application whitelisting tool in Windows Server 2016 that an admin uses to specify which binaries can run on the system to prevent malware attacks. If there is an attempt to execute unauthorized code, Windows Server will block it and log the activity.

Microsoft updated Windows Server’s security auditing capabilities, which is useful for GDPR compliance. The company designed Windows Server 2016 to integrate with security information and event management systems and extended the server OS to support two new types of auditing. For the first time, Windows Server can natively audit group memberships and Plug and Play (PnP) activity. PnP auditing helps admins detect the use of external storage devices.

What else does Microsoft offer?

Microsoft promotes its cloud service as a method to accelerate GDPR compliance. For companies that do not have that option, there are other Microsoft services and tools that can help.

The GDPR Benchmark is a questionnaire that asks about two dozen questions and offers a series of recommendations based on the answers. Figure 1 shows an excerpt from the site.

GDPR survey
Figure 1. Microsoft’s GDPR assessment site provides recommendations based on the answers to a series of questions.

The site asks for the company’s location, size and whether it is a Microsoft partner and then proceeds with a number of GDPR-specific questions. The GDPR Benchmark tool is essentially a Microsoft sales utility, but it has merit to highlight the areas the admin needs to address to meet GDPR requirements.

A Microsoft site dedicated to GDPR offers guidance through a series of documents and videos that can assist organizations though the compliance process.

GDPR Detailed Assessment
Figure 2. The GDPR Detailed Assessment package includes an Excel spreadsheet to measure a company’s level of GDPR compliance.

Figure 2 shows an Excel spreadsheet that is part of the GDPR Detailed Assessment package on the site. The spreadsheet contains more than 100 questions related to how the organization stores, maintains, secures and processes data. Complete the spreadsheet to assess the overall compliance readiness of the organization and which areas require improvement.
