HP Pavilion Media Center m8430f to DeepCool MATREXX 30


In the proceeding 3 part video series, I talk about the viability of using the older Socket 775 Core 2 Quad CPU in 2019. And modernizing an older board into a newer case with more modern features, and how to get older features like the ASUS Combo-210E TV tuner to work on Windows 10. System used is an HP Pavilion Media Center m8000 m8430f System Number: KJ376AA#ABA
