The SZ68R5 also uses intelligent Intel Core processors with LGA1155 socket. Up to 32 GB DDR3 RAM can be spread across four memory sockets. A 500 W power supply with 80-PLUS certification comes pre-installed.
Small, but easy to install The Shuttle XPC Barebone SZ68R5 consists of a stylish case with preinstalled mainboard, power supply unit (PSU) and cables. Despite its small form factor (a third of the size of a standard PC) it offers outstanding connectivity, functionality and performance. Shuttle XPC Barebones are completely customizable meaning users can pick certain components on their own to ideally match their individual needs. The meticulously designed internal layout features pre-routed cables to reduce clutter, increase airflow and make the installation of components easy.
Intel Z68 Express Chipset with Intel Smart Response Technology The Shuttle XPC Barebone SZ68R5 supports the 2nd generation Intel Core i7 / i5 / i3 / Pentium processors in the LGA1155 package, with memory and PCI Express controllers integrated. The Intel Z68 Express Chipset also supports iGPU function, letting users enjoy the latest Intel integrated graphic performance. Z68 chipset’s Intel Smart Response Technology boosts overall system performance by using a fast SSD (min 18.6GB available) as a cache for frequently accessed operations. Key benefits are expedited hard drive speeds, reduced load and wait times and maximized storage utilization.
Dual-slot graphic cards? No problem! A fast X16-PCI-E slot enables the use of modern 3D graphics cards and other expansion cards that have to transfer huge amounts of data at ultra-rapid speeds.
8-channel HD audio The superior high-definition sound with digital SPDIF output not only gives that perfect cinema feeling at home, it also offers optimal sound quality for your Skype VOIP telephone conferencing. Conveniently located ports ensure ultimate user friendliness.
Intelligent cooling Shuttle's exclusive Heatpipe Cooling technology with variable speed control automatically ensures maximum system stability and quiet operation in this aluminium Shuttle Mini-PC. Cleverly arranged components enable themselves to be cooled simultaneously in the air flow. Instead of swirling around the chassis, as is the case with conventional solutions, the warm air is specifically transferred out of the chassis.
Communication in the fast lane The integrated gigabit LAN chipset opens up completely new possibilities for communication with no restriction on the speed of data transfer. Say goodbye to information bottlenecks, whether in the company network or for home Internet access.
