Having Fun w/ (Taking Apart) a Gigabyte (GB-BXA8-5557) Mini PC

These photos were taken in my garage when I decided to take the mini-pc apart and apply a different thermal compound (arctic ceramic). Also I wasn’t sure if this unit used a GPU on the processor or if it had a dedicated GPU. It looks, as you can see, like this unit does have a separate GPU board connected by a mini PCI Express connector card (seen on the side of the motherboard in the motherboard & heatsink pictures).
