For Sale – Gaming PC Ryzen 5 2600 / MSI VEGA 56 8GB / 16GB DDR 4 / 240GB SSD £435.00

HI Mat,
I’ll get some pics up when I get home.
Bit of an open ended question, if you want to play it in 4k @ Ultra settings then no, but at 1080 i would say easily yes. The Vega 56 is equivalent of a 1070 and recommended spec for smooth settings is a 970 with 8gb memory. this has very decent 16gb of memory and a Ryzen 5 processor so “should” easily be capable at high settings in 1080. Probably best to do your own research to ensure you are going to be happy but as with all games if you want 4k at monster settings you need to spend considerably more than this PC just on the GPU.

For Sale – Various Computer Bits – MoBo, CPU, PSU, Cases

I’m having a restructure and I’m clearing out some PC bits.

Corsair CX750M PSU
Comes with at least the motherboard connector, 2×6+2 PCI connectors, 1 x 8 CPU connector, 1 SATA cable with four power connectors on. I’ll have a look in the loft tomorrow for the box and other accessories.
£50 + postage

Coolermaster Stacker 832 case
Power button is misaligned, so it works but not well, you kind of have to wiggle it. That’s what sparked this whole upgrade. I’ve also put tape on one of the side panels to stop it vibrating, that’ll likely need removing.
Not mine, but it looks like this: NEW Cooler Master Stacker 832 Alu Black ATX Full Tower Computer Case | eBay
Comes with 2 x four in three cages, 2 x 5.25″ – 3.5″ drive converters, four blue lED 120mm fans in the door, I think there’s a couple of other 120mm noctua fans in there too.
£FREE collected.

Sold items

GameMax Silent PC Gaming Case – Unused
Comes with spare lid and a fan. No box, collection only.
Now Free to anyone that wants to collect it.

Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe ITX LGA1155 motherboard
Comes with backplate and box but no wifi antenna

£50 + postage

Asus Q87M-E Socket 1150 motherboard


£25 + postage

Noctua CPU Cooler


I think it’s this one: NH-U9S
It comes with the securefit mounting plate, but not the accessories. It’ll definitely fit a 1150 socket, or compatible (1151 etc.) It has both 92mm fans.

£15 + postage

Intel Core i7 3770K LGA1155 CPU – never overclocked but apparently is great for it.

£100 + postage

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Shift X Case

Has damage to the reset/power button assembly (photo attached). I’m currently talking with Phanteks about a replacement. Also the PSU shroud is pretty mangled but doesn’t affect usage and isn’t visible at all once the sides and base are on. Comes with the vertical GPU mount and three LED strips. I have the box and some spares. I can post but it’s going to be expensive as it’s very heavy. Collection definitely preferred on this one.
£60

eVGA Supernova 750B2 Semi modular PSU

Comes with Box and modular leads
£30

This is all surplus to requirements and I could do with it gone so I’m open to offers.

The rest of the case is immaculate on the outside. Internally there are some small signs of use. There’s a sticker on the inside top, that’ll probably come off with some alcohol. The phantek logo has some wear, and the PSU guard has some bent edges, as mentioned ealrlier.

the sides, bottom and top are completely mark free. The mesh in the sides is also flat and complete. I’ll attach some pics in a second.

it comes with the accessory box which has screws and zip ties in it, along with the gpu extension cable. I can’t guarantee it has everything it should in it, but it has a good selection of black screws.

The buttons, the only thing I can think happened was that when I was stripping it down I had it stood on its end and must have caught the metal between the two desks. As I’ve lifted the PC it’s bent the metal. Prior to me taking it apart for selling the buttons were perfect.

SAP, HR vendors turn inward, work to increase Black employees

The nationwide Black Lives Matter protests are prompting some HR vendors to look anew at their own workforces. One of the most specific actions comes from SAP America, which also includes HR software SuccessFactors.

Last month, SAP America, which employs more than 19,000 in the U.S. and is based in Newtown Square, Penn., released a little-noticed statement, “Taking Action Toward Social Justice,” that set “a new goal to double the representation of African American talent in the U.S. over the next three years.”

Black employees at the firm make up 3% of its U.S. workforce, below the 4.4% average for technology firms in Silicon Valley, according to a study by the Center for Employment Equity at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. SAP America’s pledge means the firm will increase that percentage to 6% by 2023. SAP America represents its German parent, SAP, in the U.S. 

SAP is “also committed to removing insensitive language in SuccessFactors products,” said a spokeswoman in an email. This includes, for example, replacing the terms “blacklist” and “whitelist” from products, which some argue are a form of racial stereotyping. 

SAP America’s actions may be some of the most specific steps taken by any HR vendor. But others are also taking action by looking inward, evaluating their own demographics and making changes.  

Workday Inc., often seen as a darling of the HR software market, is developing a strategy to increase its Black employee workforce, currently at 2.4%, and promises future announcements. 

Ultimate Software/Kronos set study

Ultimate Software, which merged with Kronos Inc. earlier this year, has embarked on a multiyear mission to study diversity and inclusion. 

Ultimate may have one of the most diverse workforces in tech. Nearly half of its employees are women. Minority employees make up 44% of the workforce, and, of that, nearly 11% are Black, compared to Kronos, which reports 3.1% Black employees.

Kronos and Ultimate plan to announce a new name for the combined firm in the next several months. This new entity, with about 12,000 employees and around $3 billion in revenue, mirrors Workday both in earnings and combined headcount.

Last November, Kronos and Ultimate formed a new group, the Equity at Work Council, which brings together academic and business experts to study the science behind diversity and inclusion.

Jarik ConradJarik Conrad

The goal is to develop toolkits and best practices for achieving diversity and inclusion, said Jarik Conrad, executive director of the equity council.

HR tools that look at percentages of women and pay equity are plentiful. HR managers can also utilize qualitative measures, such as investigating, “How does it feel to be a person of color working in [a specific] organization? Do you feel engaged, do you feel like you have the same opportunity for growth?” Conrad said. But Ultimate Software and Kronos want to bring this qualitative and quantitative data together.

An organization may have won awards for diversity and inclusion, “but when you interview somebody who works there, they say they feel isolated, they don’t feel necessarily included,” Conrad said. The newly merged HR vendor wants to find ways to close that gap, he said. 

No vendor standards on workforce data

HR vendors vary in the amount of data they report. Some report the representation of minorities in management ranks; others do not. When Ultimate was asked for diversity data, it provided a link to Fortune’s most recent “100 Best Companies to Work For,” an annual ranking that includes a breakout of employee demographics. 

Conrad believes that HR organizations “ought to be as transparent as possible,” but more than that, they need to show how they are making progress, he said. 

On its website, Oracle reports its workforce at 31% female and 3.7% Black. Earlier this month, R. Andre Klein, a shareholder, filed a lawsuit over the diversity of its board.

“The Board, as well as the Company’s executive officers, remain devoid of Black people and other minorities,” the lawsuit states. It seeks several changes, including the resignations of several Oracle board members prior to the firm’s November annual meeting. Oracle declined to comment. 

ADP is evaluating its disclosures

ADP LLC publishes workforce demographics but doesn’t break them out by race. It reported a U.S. minority workforce at 37% in 2018. The way it reports its data could change, the firm said.

“We fully agree that transparency in reporting is critical to an organization’s diversity and inclusion programs, in addition to utilizing HCM solutions to drive successful implementation of these programs,” said Dana Casalino, a spokeswoman, in a statement. The company continues to assess its “Corporate Social Responsibility” report. “We are currently in the process of evaluating the evolution of our disclosure,” she said. A new report is due this fall. 

Even HR vendors that cite a need to improve their Black employee representation can still make Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list as well as its “100 Best Places Workplaces for Diversity.” Workday and SAP America are two examples of that.

Michael BushMichael Bush

Data analysis for both lists is done by the Great Place to Work Institute, Inc. In April, Michael Bush, CEO of the people analytics firm, was appointed to Workday’s board of directors. Workday is ranked fifth in Fortune’s “Best Companies to Work For” list, but the firm said, at the time of Bush’s appointment, it will no longer participate in the Fortune rankings. 

The representation of minority and gender is only one factor in the Great Place to Work Institute’s measures. The firm analyzes the experiences employees are having, including financial performance, leadership effectiveness and other metrics. 

We measure whether you enjoy the people that you work with.
Michael BushCEO, Great Place to Work Institute, Inc.

“We measure whether you enjoy the people that you work with,” Bush said. “Whether you have pride in the workplace, which comes from whether the people that you work with care about you and you care about them.” 

Bush sees its metrics as a catalyst for change that continues to evolve. It changed its methodology in 2016 to consider whether all demographic groups at a firm had the same experience. That change prompted some firms to exit the “Best Places” ranking process due to issues around promotions and salary, mainly among female employees, he said.
