    Really new at custom built laptops and was hoping to get some insight.

    Current build:
    Evoc P775DM3-G 17.3"
    17.3" 4K QFHD AUO LED Matte Type Display
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
    Silicon Lottery Delidded i7-6700k

    I'm currently in the market to change out my display. However, through trial and error, I realized my current 4K display utlizes a 40-pin connector and I was told there were no other 40-pin 1080p displays that are compatible with my current build. If that is the case, I was hoping the community can assist me in looking for either a display or a type of 40-pin to 30-pin converter.

    Please and thank you in advance and please let me know if you require more information!

    Probably needs a different eDP cable only, ask your reseller

    Question is why you would WANT to downgrade, other than swapping to a 120hz TN because you like twitch shooters & action games (which is not offered on the P775DM, only a 1080p60 IPS?), the AUO QFHD is an excellent panel

    Have you tried DPI scaling and the cleartype wizard to get the desktop useable in 4K?

    Down sampling to 1080p from 4K gives you perfect 2:1 scaling with no aliasing artifacts, so if Windows scaling is getting in the way there is no need to swap the panel.

    If you do want 120Hz it's a different story.
