The 4 pins around that flat "blade" on the DVI cable is the analog signal. There is a rare spec called DVI-A which uses only them. DVI-D is digital only and lacks the 4 pins. DVI-I has both the digital and analog pins.

I didn't follow your links, but that's the info you asked about. If SR says the cable he linked works, then get that.

Just wanted to say thanks to the mods because i've been looking for something that would fit the 4 pins around the blade now i know thats irrelevant ordering the cables TODAY. also i just built a gaming pc and i havent turned it on yet... everythings in the right spot.. Im just scared because its been sitting for 2 weeks in my room i hope i didnt get a defective part warranty ends thursday whats the chance of getting a defective part?

also how long can thermal paste sit will it dry up??

I've only had 1 motherboard , 1 video card , and a broken case panel in over 15 years of building.

I've spent thousands on Newegg and FROZEN CPU.
