Sometimes, putting something like 


in ~/.Xdefaults
made all fonts usuable for me on most systems.  I have a page about my
adventures with the yoga2 (though not about CentOS on it.)

What I have found is that the default Fedora workstation auto scales fonts
(and everything else for me). 
There are a few other ways to deal with fonts, such as using xrandr to
scale, but in Fedora 24 and up, (you mentioned you were using F23), if
you're using Gnome, it may be just automatically work. I tend to use more
minimalist window managers but even so, with Fedora (and Arch) at least,
the Xft.dpi:180 entry made most things readable.
