    3. The size and shape of motherboards or computer case. What is a form factor? Motherboard100

    4. Two types of the common form factors used for building computers. What are ATX, Mini-ATX, Micro-ATX, NLX, LPX, BTX? (Only two required for answer) Motherboard200

    5. The 24-pin connector serves this purpose for the mother board… What is deliver power? Motherboard300

    6. What does the chipset (Northbridge & Southbridge) do? What is communicate between the CPU and the rest of the motherboard? Motherboard400

    7. The Northbridge chip set controls these items. The speed and access at which the CPU can communicate with RAM and the videocard? Motherboard500

    8. Before buying this component, a technician should consider the case form factor and the total power requirement for the system components. What is a power supply? Main System100

    9. Power supplies often have this to allow PCs to be sold in different countries. What are voltage switches from 110v to 220v? Main System200

    10. Cache uses this type of memory to store data frequently needed by the CPU. What is SRAM? Main System300

    11. These are very important to consider when building a system to run virtual machines. What are RAM and number of CPU cores? Main System400

    12. How does the speed of the front side bus relate to the speed of DDR memory? What is the memory is generally two times faster (Double Data Rate) than the bus speed? Main System500

    13. This type of magnetic storage device for large files and operating systems is less reliable because it has moving parts and consumes more electricity. What is a HDD (Hard Disk Drive)? Storage100

    14. Two types of magnetic storage devices. What are Hard Disk Drives (HDD), Floppy Disk Drives (FDD), and Tape drives? Storage200

    15. Two reasons for upgrading to an SSD? What are reliability, performance and ability to withstand high g forces? Storage300

    16. Stacks of hard disk drives programmed to act as a single disk and protect against failure. What is a RAID?(Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) Storage400

    17. Hard drives and motors use this measurement for speed. What is RPM(Revolutions per Minute)? Storage500

    18. This type of memory retains its contents even when the computer is powered down (non-volatile). What is ROM? Components100

    19. Identify the following components: What are NIC, Wireless NIC, Graphics Adapter Card and CPU? Components200

    20. Name two of the pictured expansion slots. What are AGP, PCI and PCI-Express? Components300

    21. Upgrade this component to get the best performance boost for your system. What is RAM? Components400

    22. Type of adaptor card used to transfer a video signal to a computer. What is a video capture card? Components500

    23. Term used when measuring the number of pixels(width & length) on a computer monitor. What is resolution? e.g.: 1280x1024 Input/Output100

    24. Two most common output devices. What are the monitor and printer? Input/Output200

    25. Two most common input devices. What are keyboard and mouse (pointing device)? Input/Output300 Daily Double

    26. Input device often used to create images of families and pets. What are digital cameras? Input/Output400

    27. Output device that employs the use of polarizing filters with a liquid crystal solution between them. What is an LCD Monitor? Input/Output500

    28. SATA data cables have this many conductors. What is 7? Cables & More100 Daily Double

    29. This peripheral port uses the IEEE 1284 Standard and is often used to send data 8 bits at a time to printers. What is a parallel port? Cables & More200

    30. The legacy port pictured here is used for communications and sends one bit of data at a time. What is a serial port? (Also comes in 25-pin configuration) Cables & More300

    31. Feature for a USB cable not found in a serial cable. What is power to run external devices? Cables & More400

    32. The types of connectors for IEEE 1394a and IEEE 1394b. What are 6-pin or 4-pin for 1394a and 9-pin for 1394b? Cables & More500

    33. Features of RAID Levels 1, 5, & 0/1 Question: What are 1: Disk Mirroring, high performance, high cost 0/1: Combo of striping and mirroring, high performance and data protection, high cost 5: Combo of striping and parity, supports simultaneous requests, slower than 0 or 1 Final Jeopardy

    34. Input/Output 300Daily Double • Name of three additional input devices. • What are smart board, touchpad, scanner, web cam, microphone, etc.?

    35. Cables & More 100Daily Double • Number of pins for a SATA power connector. • What is 15?
