  1. As for the memories, from my brief test a 10th generation processor with a B560 board will support without issue a 3200 memories, run XMP in the BIOS and everything works. As for the 4th generation storage the benefits are mostly on paper, in any case your SSD which seems to support 4th generation even in the most optimistic mode according to the manufacturer statement reaches the maximum speed which even 3rd generation handles without any problem. My recommendation is to stick with the 10600k and maybe upgrade the board a bit to something a little more successful.
  2. This processor consumes over 200w at full load, and it is a board with a very basic power supply (VRM) system and even without a heat sink, it will just overheat and limit the processor to low frequency operation. There is a similar problem with the cooling of the processor that will not be able to dissipate such an amount of heat in continuous operation over time. This is a general problem with recent Intel processors and you will not get it wrong, even with 10600k it will be quite borderline. As for the cases, the NX410 is just good value for money with airflow through a front grid and three fans included in the price, it's not that you can find other cases with similar cooling capacity. Of those you have chosen the CoolerMaster MB311L will probably give similar performance plus a rear fan. In terms of dimensions, the NX410 is a bit taller but less deep, a case of 39 liters compared to 36 liters is not a significant difference (we will not talk about the Draco 10 which is even a little larger in volume than the NX410).
  3. I think you should really compare the dimensions of the cases, some of which are no smaller than the NX410. As for the specification itself, I would reconsider choosing the parts. To combine this processor with the board and cooling you have chosen is to put a gas pool in neutral, a pity about the money. I guess you already have the video card promoted because I would not recommend buying a new 1060 today.
  4. There is a switch in the upper right corner of the keyboard that turns off the lights
  5. All the keyboards I know have a way to turn off and even control the lighting intensity. What is the model of the keyboard?
  6. Such enclosures will indeed suit you, but I would try to choose an enclosure with better airflow and add some fans. It might be better to go for the Q300L which does not have the front power supply which blocks the airflow.
  7. If it is not written in the user manual then it is not certain that it will be possible to find an explicit commitment for any numbers. Basically you can follow what is written in the standards but I would not 100% build on it in all cases. According to the standard: hdmi 1.4 allows 144Hz in 1080p and 75hz in 1440p displayport 1.2 allows 240Hz in 1080p and 165hz in 1440p Of course there are now motherboards that support hdmi 2.0 and displayport 1.4, it gets even more complicated if you try Consider additional parameters like 10 bit color and HDR. Many times it is also limited by the side of the screen and varies according to the type of connection so that this too should be checked.
  8. You do not read correctly what is written there, it only indicates what the refresh rate is at the maximum resolution that the essay supports. With lower resolutions you can achieve higher refresh rates, from experience modern built-in video cards support without a problem high refresh rates. The fact that it says that in a 4K HDMI connection you are limited to 30 Hz does not mean that it is not possible to reach 100 Hz in FHD resolution for example.
  9. A full-size ATX motherboard is not suitable for mini chassis, for a really small chassis you will need to replace a significant portion of your system, however the chassis you have is really huge, you should have no problem switching to a more standard chassis without any damage to cooling or special parts required.
  10. I am not familiar with a device that both receives BT and transmits BT simultaneously. You can always buy several devices and connect them to get the result you want but I really would not be surprised if there are problems of frequency and bandwidth conflicts between the different devices. BT is not intended to be a protocol for a multi-device network at high transmission rates, you seek to use it in a way that is not designed or suited to it. What you want is really not that complicated but for some reason you are stuck on the thought that the solution must be entirely Bluetooth based.
  11. What are the reduced ergonomic capabilities? The only thing I see is that the second model does not rotate 90 degrees to a vertical position
  12. It is perhaps worth noting that in the meantime Gigabyte has managed to release another model M32U with almost identical data only in a different design and a price tag of about a thousand shekels less (if and when it arrives in the country).
  13. Let's start with the questions, what is the source from which you hear the music? Do you want to control all the speakers from a central location? Bluetooth is usually not a good solution to what you are asking for, it is too limited in both distance and quality. Once the transmission needs to go more than two feet and through walls then it just does not work. If all you need are separate speakers and whoever is sitting next to them connects to them with his phone and hears then separate Bluetooth speakers is a simple cheap solution. If you want central control without too many wires and clutter in the installation then there are wifi based speakers that give a good solution. Sonos is the leading company in this field but it is not a cheap solution. Expensive receivers give an option to control different areas and connect to wifi speakers (usually only from the same company) but it is a more complicated installation with wires from the receiver to each speaker and usually the control is not the most friendly in the world. Of course there are smart home solutions that installers will be happy to offer you for a few tens of thousands of shekels, I guess that is not where you are aiming.
  14. The components that should be improved are a higher quality power supply and a more ventilated case
