For Trade – i7 5960X Workstation / Gaming PC

I was recently debating some upgrades and locally someone was trading a full system for a MacBook so now I have 2 x 8 core builds and decided to just stick with the Ryzen build instead of swapping things around. I was going to try build a hackintosh but with the Nvidia card and no longer owning a MacBook I think this is a non starter.

i7 5960X Extreme Edition
ASUS X99 Deluxe II
32GB Dominator Platinum 2666
Asus GTX 980 GB OC
1 x 500GB Kingston M.2 (Vertical M.2 Slot)
1 x 1TB Toshiba M.2 (PCE-E X4 Card)
1 x Seagate 3TB
Corsair Obsidian 500D
H100 AIO with SP120 fans.

Accessories

Corsair M65 RGB
Corsair K70 Cherry MX Red
Corsair Void wireless
Corsair extended mouse mat M200

BenQ XL2410 120Hz Gaming monitor

I have absolutely no idea on value but I am open to trades and offers, I will have to do some research and maybe offer parts in bundles as it may be difficult to find interest on the full system.

Not currently advertised elsewhere.

Interested in Apple products, VR laptop or Laptop with TB3.

For Sale – EVGA GTX 1080 SC

Hi all, on behalf of a friend, I am selling some components from his old PC after an upgrade. These parts have all been tested by myself and it has all checked out well with no issues found. These are all parts from a Chillblast pre built (sorry lol) as he doesn’t feel comfortable building his own, so the Motherboard splash screen is a Chillblast splash screen, I could probably change this, but I have no real reason to do so as it works fine as is and I don’t want to mess anything up. The comonents and prices are as follows;

Intel Core i7 6700k CPU – £SOLD (I will do my best to clear the thermal paste from around the edges of the CPU, Chillblast were pretty generous)
Gigabyte Z170XP-SLI Motherboard with IO Shield – £SOLD
2 x 8GB Goldkey 2133Mhz DDR4 Ram – £SOLD
EVGA GTX 1080 SC (There is a small, lets say dint on the GPU back plate, was there when removed from the PC so my assumption is there was a minor mishap during the build, doesn’t effect use in any way) – £300 (warranty for 106 days checked on 05/06/2020)
Integral M Series 256GB NVMe SSD (M.2 2280) Brand New – £SOLD
Corsair CX750 80+ Bronze PSU (Non Modular) – £SOLD
Noctua NH-D15 Air Cooler (Intel attachments only due to being a pre built) – £SOLD

All prices are negotiable and include the cost of shipping (I’m dreading the PSU and that behemoth of a cooler ). Please do note, that I have none of the original boxes, but each item will arrive in some form of box with adequate packaging (this will likely be old component boxes of mine, so nothing will be packaged badly).

I would like to see this go as a bundle and will be shipped via DPD insured delivery and packaged as boxes within a box for the maximum protection fo the components I can get should it go all together.

This would make an ideal PC for those looking to get in to PC gaming at just about any resolution (pretty sure the 1080 can handle 4k with some reduced settings on a good majority of games).

I do have a boxed 1080p AOC IPS 21.5 inch monitor (I2267FWH) I can include in the sale, brilliant condition other than a small white dot on the screen, the screen still works great, it just has a white dot at the top of the display, some people wont mind it, otherwise will be driven crazy by it. Pictures will be uploaded of this later when I get it out. I was after £40 on this due to the screen issue, but I’m again, open to offers.

Sorry for the lengthy post, and if you have any questions please do ask.

Payment would have to be via Bank Transfer please.

Wanted – Computer speakers 3.5mm wanted

Hey looking for some computer speakers. (2 speakers, ideally no subwoofer) Not looking to spend to much but they must look nice and perform reasonably. I remember seeing a pair of creative labs speakers a few months back that peaked my interest but I sat on it for too long.

Making it easier to stay caught up with Cortana in Microsoft 365

With recent events leading to the world’s largest work-from-home shift, we could all use some assistance to stay caught up with work while juggling personal responsibilities. We’re featuring updates available starting today with Cortana, your personal productivity assistant in Microsoft 365, to make it easier to get time back on your busy schedule and focus on what matters.

Stay on track with Cortana in Windows 10—To help you save time finding what you need and stay focused, we’re releasing a new chat-based Cortana experience in Windows 10 focused on enhancing your productivity. With this, you can ask Cortana using natural language to quickly check your schedule, connect with people, set reminders, or add tasks in Microsoft To Do. You can also find local information, get definitions, and keep track of the latest news, weather, and finance updates with Bing as a Cortana optional connected service. Simply type or click on the microphone button and speak commands such as “Am I free at 9?”, “Find time with Nestor to talk about the budget,” “Join my meeting,” “Remind me to review expenses every Friday at 3 PM,” and more. This productivity focused experience is now generally available in English for customers in the United States with the Windows 10 May 2020 update. In the coming months, with regular app updates through the Microsoft Store, we’ll enhance this experience to support wake word invocation and enable listening when you say “Cortana,” offer more productivity capabilities such as surfacing relevant emails and documents to help you prepare for meetings, and expand supported capabilities for international users.

Stay organized and connected with Play My Emails—To help you manage your time and tasks while listening to new emails and changes to your day, we’re rolling out updates to the Play My Emails experience in Outlook for iOS. You will now be able to ask Cortana to schedule a meeting in response to an email and add an email to your tasks list, making it easier to get things done while you are away from your computer. We have also introduced voice commands and touch targets for sending responses to meeting invitations as well as an option to quickly join an active online meeting or send an “I’m running late” message to the participants. These new task and time management updates are now generally available for customers in the United States with Play My Emails in Outlook for iOS. And, we are excited to confirm that Play My Emails will start to roll out in Outlook for Android in the coming weeks.

Start your day on track with the Briefing email—To help you be well prepared for upcoming meetings and stay on top of commitments, we’re introducing the new Briefing email from Cortana. This personalized brief will appear automatically in your Outlook inbox near the start of your workday, providing intelligent, actionable recommendations of documents for you to review ahead of the day’s meetings and drawing your attention to pending requests or commitments from prior emails that you may want to follow up on. This email will also make it easy for you to reserve “focus time” during your workday for uninterrupted focused work with Microsoft Teams notifications silenced. Briefing is currently rolling out in First Release for Microsoft 365 Enterprise users with Exchange Online mailboxes in English.

Animated image of Cortana Daily Briefings in Outlook Mobile. The user opens a daily briefing, marks a quality report complete, a task complete, and books focus time before checking their calendar.

As a personal productivity assistant that is a natural part of Microsoft 365, Cortana processes data safely and securely to fulfill your requests. Protecting your data and privacy is our highest priority, and we give you control over your data. These new Cortana experiences are delivered using services that fully comply with Office 365’s enterprise-level privacy, security and compliance promises as laid out in the Online Services Terms, and are enabled by default. For a closer look at the user experience and information on admin configurations, watch this Microsoft Mechanics demo. Try these experiences for yourself today and stay tuned for more innovations coming with Cortana in Microsoft 365 to help you make the most of your time.
