    What causes tempered glass panel to explode?!

    That's why some manufacturers don't put screws through tempered glass, or even use them to hold the panel down by some other mechanical means. Instead they use magnets, or glued on plastic clips, which pull the panel against the case instead of pressing it against the case.

    What causes tempered glass panel to explode?!

    A crack, chip or scratch, and uneven pressure (or extremely uneven heat) on the panel. For instance, if you had a screw point pressed against a panel, and you bumped it (creating a large uneven force), it would likely shatter. if there was a crack or scratch, and you had a screw a bit too...

    Output DTS to analogue speakers

    Assuming you have the requisite audio ports, it should be easy -- your movie player (vlc, for example) and audio codec (realtek) should handle it. If you have only line-in/mic, line-out, and phones (three ports), you'll need to either get a sound card with the rear, center, front, and sub...

    Corsair 5000D new build not turning on

    It might just work, but if not you can usually hit f11 or something to select the boot device, or select it from the bios directly if you think you'll only need it once.

    Corsair 5000D new build not turning on

    Issue is the vidyo card checks for presence of all the pins (or at least the ground pins). If any aren't present, the card either boots in a low power state or doesn't boot at all.

    Now that you mention it... Yeah, that's janky. Email cablemod and ask'em what's the dealio, 'cause that shit don't fly. :/

    Monitor frequency

    There are other things which might make 60hz (and other lower frequencies) more or less tolerable. Display technology, image processing/filters applied by the display itself, backlight brightness and dimming type, room lighting, your own eyes and brain, probably some other things as well. Edit...

    big jump in price from 4k to 5k. why?

    It's a 27% increase in pixels per inch (given the same phisical display size), and 66% increase in total pixels, regardless. It's a pretty huge jump, and they probably have a similar yield to what 4k displays had when they were new -- not very good, in other words. https://www.sven.de/dpi/

    Can someone fluent in Linux help me with this?

    Looks like there's a PKGBUILD on the aur, too, if you're on archlinux. There may be some issues with how it's set up, though, so might actually be easier to follow the projects own build instructions.

    Also, it may be the case that the speech is not protected, but the actions of the government are illegal for other reasons.

    Good case for "Pedestal Server" style testbench machine

    ...I guess it won't fit if you rotate the noctua 30 or 90 degrees? Ugh, I hate that.
