Old timer Q9550 on custom loop

Build Description

Bored really had a entertainment center project with no gpu for an x99 mother board so decided to wake up an old 2009 Acer aspire AX3800 mother board with on board graphic's to play with on a test bench
Upgrades, well everything lol
Also has been installed in a D450 case too in the beginning but got retired for my x299 build.
Pickup a dirt cheap 980ti off ebay works well 980 was in it before being retired so a 980ti is an upgrade but downgrade for x99 so it will stay as is for now.

Favorite Feature

On board graphic's and still alive first real jump into modifying/ upgrading hardware.
