  1. Every case I've worked with used #6-32 screws everywhere. Certain components use different screws, like 2.5" drives use M3 screws, and case fans are often mounted with some course self-tapping screws. Some motherboard standoffs also use M3 screws. But other than that pretty much everything is usually #6-32.
  2. Please refer to the product recommendations in the pinned thread: https://linustechtips.com/topic/729232-guide-to-display-cables-adapters-v2/?output=DP&input=HDMI
  3. Pinned thread: https://linustechtips.com/topic/729232-guide-to-display-cables-adapters-v2/?output=DP Read the "Compatibility" section.
  4. No, for the same reason that changing the font size in a word document from 12 pt to 15 pt doesn't cause blur. Windows scaling changes the resolution that things are rendered at, it doesn't render at a lower resolution and then scale the image up to to a higher resolution.
  5. You're replying to a post from 5 years ago.
  6. i7-6700 is 6th gen. Intel HD graphics are limited to 120 Hz at 1080p over HDMI. Any configuration up to 7.2 Gbit/s here: https://linustechtips.com/topic/729232-guide-to-display-cables-adapters-v2/?section=calc&H=1920&V=1080&F=120
  7. Well firstly, brightness is specified in candelas per square metre, that is light output per unit area. Don't confuse light output with brightness; if you halve the light output of each pixel, but also halve the size, yes the brightness will remain the same. If you halve the brightness, and double the number of pixels, the brightness will still be half because you halved the brightess. The total light output has increased but the area has also increased by the same amount. There is no "total brightness" since multiple lights don't add their brightnesses. Just like if you have an object at a te
  8. Right. Certain things in computers are designed to be multiples of powers of 2, so if you use groups based on powers of 2, they will come out as nice round numbers that way. So, we should use groups based on powers of 2 to count bits and bytes. There's no debate there. The question is, what should we call those groups? Should we call them KB, MB, GB? Or should we use those to refer to 1000, and come up with a different name for the groups of 1024? I know a lot of people think "well everything in computers uses 1024, so we don't need prefixes for 1000 in the first place.
  9. There is no such limit. There are certified DP cables up to at least 5 metres (16 feet), and nothing in the standard that limits cables to a particular length.
  10. (US is 120 V and Europe is 230 V actually )
  11. VESA hasn't announced any new certification standards, and there are no Monoprice products listed in the DisplayPort certified product database, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Dead link seems to be a TH forum bug, I'll see what can be done about it.
  12. Yes, sorry. They go in alphabetical order.
