5 out of 5 eggsThe Space You Need

Pros: An intelligent layout provides no more space than required while providing space enough to comfortably build the machine, mostly thanks to the removable drive tray. Though not immediately apparent, the drive tray does accommodate the narrow downward SSD mounting screws by way of four large perfectly spaced circular cut outs.

BIOS options were a pleasant surprise. Memory voltage, frequency, and timings were fully customizable. Video memory can be custom selected from 64MB to 1024MB. CPU modifications are unsurprisingly locked save for the toggle of power saving features.

Heat dissipation is more than adequate for my 4130 i3. The heatsink fan will throttle up for Prime95 but only just. There's plenty of head room for the up-line processors. The PC draws a very impressive 15 watts while idling and a mere 70 watts at full clip in Prime95. This leaves plenty of head room for a dedicated budget video card. The PSU only provides one 6-pin video connector so you would need to make sure a molex to 6-pin adapter was included with your video card of choice.

Cons: My shuttle shipped with a dead CMOS battery. The BIOS would be restored to defaults each time it was unplugged. A $6 replacement was needed.

The heatsink fan emits the sound of a motor. You hear more than the woosh of air. It's hard to get upset about the noise as the fan only emits around 15 db of noise on the low idle but the noise is undesirable (I estimate based on comparison to my noctua filled mid-tower). I can't confirm for you that the fan is 92mm, but that is my best guess based on the gap to the 80mm fan I tried to fit.

A space for a forward intake fan would have been nice. And the air holes running the length of the case will welcome dust over time. I've become accustomed to mid-towers with fan grilles.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent chassis for a Haswell Core i5 or i7

Pros: Constantly improving build standards over previous generations of Shuttle XPC barebones chassis.
Offers maximum RAM installation at 32GiB of DDR3 via 4 slots.
Includes plenty of USB3 ports as well as more SATA/eSATA ports than I'd ever be able to make use of in that chassis.
mPCI-Ex and mSATA slots/connectors will get used for an SSD without need of data or power cables.
HDMI/DVI ports for builtin video are good choices.
BIOS is a no-nonsense UEFI which I appreciate. Gives you all the advantages of UEFI without all the nonsense (graphical mouse mandatory or flashy words instead of technical terms).
Quality built internals, 3rd Shuttle XPC I've purchased since 2006. Excellent value at price point below $300 compared to other do it yourself options.
Oh and did I mention it boots Linux (Fedora 20) from cold boot to login screen in under 20 seconds including 5 seconds of grub menu (that's paired with a Core i7-4770 and an OCZ Vertex 3).

Cons: If this can be considered a con, it's a bit larger than my previous Shuttle, which was also a tiny bit larger than the one prior, so now it barely fits on my admittedly small desk.
That's the only complaint I have. Everything else works, subdued (not flashy) styling and good choices of features.
Oh I would have preferred an Intel gigabit NIC or even a Broadcom or Marvell over Realtek, but whatever.

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd Shuttle XPC I've purchased since 2006. First being a white AMD Athlon XP based unit that did have a somewhat poor set of choices for internals. Via chipset that had poor performance (did not support 400MHz DDR or dual channel, SATA ports that only ran at 1.5Gbps and 3Gbps drives would not even work).

Second was much better black Intel based unit I put a Core 2 Quad Q6600 in and maxed out at 4GiB of RAM back in 2009. This unit's only real complaint was that the front firewire port broke upon first use (too flimsy but this was before I started using the eSATA port on the back), and the BIOS was majorly buggy, sometimes the machine would either hang posting or take really long to get to grub. After a BIOS upgrade 3 years after I bought it, that problem went away. But I did have to buy an external video card because the heatsink on the builtin GPU was falling off and causing it to overheat and the video would cut out roughly 10 or 20 minutes of use. But that machine is still going strong to this day.

The 4GiB maximum RAM of my previous Shuttle got me to wanting to build a new unit (CPU performance was not really a problem yet as the Q6600 is still a good CPU despite its age. This unit is definitely even better than the last, better internal chipset choices (except for the Realtek GigE NIC). Lots of SATA/eSATA ports, USB3 ports choice of 4 RAM slots to max out the chassis with the maximum supported by Haswell at 32GiB. mPCI-Ex and mSATA ports are a definitely nice touch I plan to use for an mSATA SSD. BIOS v2.01 (latest offered at time of purchase) works flawlessly and boots fast.

3 out of 5 eggsReasonably OK

Pros: Well made little box - nice and tidy inside - comes with a liquid cooler for the CPU, so I have yet another Intel-supplied CPU fan to decorate my office with. Plenty of USB ports front and back.

Cons: There is something fishy going on with the keyboard input. I've set this up as a dual-boot Linux/Win 8.1 box, and no matter which O/S is running, keyboard input frequently "buffers up", so to speak. It's almost like typing on an old mechanical TTY terminal (yes, I've done that) except it will sometimes sit there for 30 seconds after you've pressed the keys before anything shows up on the screen. I swapped my wireless keyboard for a hardwired mechanical one - same problem. The only thing left that could be causing this is the mobo.

Other Thoughts: I'd happily give this 5 eggs if it weren't for the keyboard input issues. While I can't be 100% sure it's the mobo, I've swapped out everything else and the problem persists. It's intermittent enough that the machine is still usable, but still happens several times an hour.

5 out of 5 eggsnice, but don't upgrade the bios

Pros: Nicely put together. With 4 GB of 1.35V memory and a Core i3, idles at 19-20 W with all the components (hard drive, etc.). Hits 50W when running memtest (which uses only 1 core).

Cons: Don't upgrade the firmware. It came with 1.02, and I installed 2.00. However, 2.00 is missing the "hit the <DEL> key" to enter bios... so you can't change any settings, like boot priority. Ridiculous! I had to go back to 1.02.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, Sleak, & Fast

Pros: High quality components
Easy build
Fast & Quiet

Cons: Would be nice if they included the RF cables for WiFi, since they are a bit hard to find in the size required. (about 16")

Other Thoughts: Easy install of Windows 7 Pro. The included Drivers disc included everything except the WiFi adapter I added.

A couple things I learned that weren't obvious before having it in front of me:

The one pcie slot is mSata, and an mSata SSD can be used.

You can expose one of the drive bays should you want a card reader, or other such accessory.

There are three pre-cut antenna mounting holes if you wish to add WiFi antennas. But they do But you need a pretty long cable - like 16". I didn't find at newegg or amzn, but did find a pair at . Shuttle sells a WLAN kit, but it includes the wireless adapter itself, which is single band and no bluetooth, and old. Better to get own WiFi and antenna.

Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
Western Digital WD Blue WD7500AZEX 750GB
Intel 7260HMW IEEE 802.11AC, dual-band, 2x2 Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth 4.0
LG Blu-ray Burner WH16NS40

btw, two SATA cables are included, as is some thermal paste.

Mounting screws are in place already for the pcie slots - nice.

5 out of 5 eggsmy second HTPC, first Shuttle and I like it

Pros: I was excited to get this little machine and so far it doesn't disappoint. It was easy to assemble and started right up. The BIOS is old school but how often you do boot into the BIOS? I very rarely do and navigating the menus with a keyboard was no problem for me on initial setup. I installed my dual channel ram in the yellow sockets and had no issues what so ever. I am using two 4GB Ripjaw X Series sticks. I loaded Windows 7 from a USB thumb drive plugged into the front USB 3.0. Worked flawlessly.

It runs nice and cool which is why I bought it. My old machine was too hot for my Ceton cable card tuner. I was happy that it had two PCI slots one of which I used for a Centon InvinTV4 card. It works no problem and is running much cooler than before. I plan on switching it over to the other PCI slot and adding an Intel NIC and turning off the Realtek NIC.

I like the size, I like the look and I like the performance so far.

connected to a 47" Vizio via HDMI
(TV is hooked via Toslink to sound bar but the Shuttle has Toslink out too)

Intel Core i3-4130 Haswell 3.4GHz (HD 4400 Graphics)

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory

Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Hitachi GST Deskstar 5K3000 HDS5C3020ALA632 (0F12117) 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Cons: My only complaint is the fan is louder than any fan that was in my old Dell which this replaced and the primary HTPC in the home. Its not so terrible that I hate it and can easily be replaced.

4 out of 5 eggsQuick & Easy Build

Pros: Very quick & Easy build.
Typical Shuttle Quality.

Cons: Manual & Quick Start Guide give bad info.
lower (USB port) Door warped.

Other Thoughts: If you follow the instructions in the manual or Quick start guide, and are installing only two sticks of RAM, your Shuttle will NOT boot, so ignore the instructions and install your two sticks of RAM in the RED slots (not yellow, as instructed).
I have seen this issue a number of times, so I knew what to do after the 2nd failed boot attempt. But shame on you Shuttle. I wonder how many DOA returns they have gotten because of this.

I have built 6-8 Shuttle PCs since 2004, so this was a familiar build for me, took about 15 minutes.
This was a last minute build for a friend who was shipping it to his father for X-mas (is why review doesn't show "Verified Owner"), so the fast build time was welcome.

The bottom (USB port) door latches on the right, and is warped, so that the left side is about 2mm more open, which looks bad, but not a deal breaker. I have seen this on other Shuttle builds.

Fairly quiet. I used a low power "S" Haswell, (i5-4570S), which keeps the heat (and thus fan noise) low, but can still kick into high gear when needed.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty easy build

Pros: Very easy build. This machine went together really quickly and with few headaches. Great size and enough room to upgrade with a full size graphics card. Others have mentioned the fan, but I haven't really noticed it being that loud. I was nervous about the shuttle's heat sink design but it works really well, I was troubleshooting (see below) and ran Prime 95 torture test on the CPU for around 15 hours. The CPU temp never got over 49C (no overclock). Loving this machine!

Cons: Very little documentation. If you know how to build a computer already shouldn't be a problem but the quick guide was not overly descriptive. Had some trouble with the DVD drive bay lining up, as said before use slot three to get it to work properly. Also display driver is out of date even though windows will say its good. Went to Intel's site and used their driver update utility to get correct driver now having no hiccups.

Other Thoughts: Would have given this 5 stars if I wouldn't have had so many problems with the display driver. This was my first build so I didn't listen to my gut and wound up trouble shooting every piece of hardware trying to find the problem.

I'm using this with the Intel G3220 pentium dual core Haswell and it runs amazingly well. I'm not gaming on this machine but don't ignore this CPU just based on price, it runs great in the shuttle.

2 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.0 ports don't work

Pros: Added mSATA port, USB 3.0 support. No other changes over last 5 years. Same everything.

Cons: Upgraded to SH87R6 from my old SX58J3 mostly to get USB 3.0 and it DOES NOT work. Enabling USB 3.0 support option in BIOS settings disables all USB ports at all under Windows 7 x64. Tried most updated Intel drivers. Will try to install Windows 8.1 as there is native Microsoft driver for Intel USB 3.0 controller (since Intel coultn't provide one for more than a year).

Also same noisy FAN as in old model. Installed my Noctura instead and got less 20dB noise.

Other Thoughts: Switching to MAC platform this XMAS. Tired of this upgrades. Wanna computer that just works.

5 out of 5 eggsLove the system

Pros: Overall, I am very pleased with the system. I have built several desktops over the years -- maybe 15 or so -- but this is my first Shuttle experience. My needs for this box are to support software development. In particular, to help support the development of cloud-based web apps. So, I needed compute power and memory space. No special peripherals or graphics muscle. I chose this box over the smaller Shuttle boxes because of its four memory slots. I'm running VMware Workstation 10 on it with several Linux and Windows partitions and wanted to populate the system with 32 gig of ram.

Several nice features:

- Almost tool-less design..thumb screws and a few phillips head screws
- Heat pipe heat sink. I have to say I've never been a big overclocker so I don't know that this has a big thermal impact, but the design definitely keeps the clutter away from the center of the motherboard so that it's easier to install the RAM and the SATA cables. Maybe that's the point.
- Simple, large one page quick installation sheet. Good enough to get the job done.
- Lots of I/O -- front and back. See the details on the specifications tab. Supports two monitors without graphics hardware. Perfect for my development box needs.
- ease of access for SATA and RAM slots. In fact, these RAM modules seemed to snap in more easily that many others I've tried.

I installed Windows 8.1 and it came up with minimal problems. Had to install the drivers that came on the Shuttle disk to get Ethernet working. The only problem I had was that the Intel display manager wouldn't run. To fix that, I had to go to Shuttle site and load their latest VGA driver. Oddly, the installation complained that I was installing an older version than was already present. I didn't it anyway and all worked fine. I suspect that I either did something wrong during the installation from the Shuttle disk or the Shuttle installation incorrectly selects drivers (32- or 64-bit, e.g.). No matter - install the latest from the Shuttle site and you will be fine. I usually do that anyway but this time I needed the disk to get to the Internet so I did the whole install at the same time.

After installing Windows, I put on a trial version of VMware Workstation 10. That installed fine but I had trouble putting guest Linux partitions up. So, I wiped the SSD and put Ubuntu 13.10 on. Installs fine. Put on the VMware load for Linux and everything was fine. I now have several OS partitions running as guest with no problems.

With an i7 4770 and an SSD, this thing screams. after POST, Ubuntu boots in under 5 seconds. I have a large (~80TB) farm of NAS storage available, so my strategy with this box is to use SSD and a lot of RAM for the guest OSes and use remote mounts for my larger storage needs.

It has only been a few days, but it is all working well so far. I love the box.

Cons: I know it's common with Shuttle products, but I'm not a fan of the hidden DVD drive thing. To me it seems like mechanical foofaraw that not only doesn't improve the aesthetics but also represents a potential reliability issue. But, it works and people must love it as Shuttle continues to do it. Just remember to use "hole set #3" when you are installing your optical drive so that the external Shuttle eject button will actuate the eject button on the DVD's front bezel. I didn't do that the first time around and had to do some disassembly to correct my mistake.

The only other con I would mention is that I would prefer a quieter fan. The fan in this unit isn't bad, but I love quiet and under high loads, the high revs get a bit noisy. My other builds are much quieter but they have bigger fans -- not a fair comparison because they can move more air at a lower speed. I may play with this in the future to see if something can be done.

Other Thoughts: One thing I didn't notice is the "packaging" section on the specification tab for this listing. So, I ended up buying SATA cables and heat sink compound that I didn't need. You might check that out before completing your order. By the way, it appears that they say the device comes with one SATA cable. Mine came with two.

Here's my configuration, by the way.

Shuttle SH87R6
