5 out of 5 eggsGreat shuttle, couldnt be happier

Pros: quiet, GREAT OC'r, pci-e 16x, bigger psu compared to similar priced shuttles.

Cons: only thing i can really think of is the floppy place (dont have a floppy) so it looks wierd when open. another minor thing is when installing XP-pro the os recognizes the 6-in-1 reader as drives and named my drive F:, just dont plug in the card reader til xp is setup.

Other Thoughts: this system is a great little setup. Currently running:
Intel P4D 2.8 @ 3.41
x850 Pro
1gb corsair value select
SB audigy (the twenty seven dollar one)
2x 80gb WD hdd's in raid 0

this system is QUICK, even coming from a athlon FX-60 system it even seems quick. OC's great w/ the fans set to 60% in the bios (barely audible) the exit air feels like room temperature even after playing wow for 6+ hours. couldnt be happier with my purchase paired this system with a mx518 and a wolf claw 2 keyboard and a 19" hanns-g widescreen and still only spent eight hundred sixty some odd dollars. couldnt be happier and much cheaper than my other system with identical performance in wow.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Runs quiet, looks great. High quality, well-made case. The 3.5 bays aren't setup that great, but what can you expect from such a compact system, right?

Cons: The 3.5 bay setup is horrible. Don't ever put any harddrives on the top bays above the CD/DVD drive. The setup caused my harddrive to screw up a few times (magnetic interference?). The system is great if you only have one harddrive and keep it in the bay below the CD/DVD drive.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat for 3 months

Pros: Worked well for 3 months.

Cons: After 3 months, it stopped working. The Shuttle customer help was very poor. They have had the machine back there twice and it still does not work. Now they will not answer e-mails or phone calls.

Other Thoughts: If I had it to do over again I would have bought another machine, anything else

5 out of 5 eggsThis system will knock you off your feet!

Pros: This system runs extreemely quiet, only running higher fan speeds when necessary.
The compact design is excellent for the GLANer that I am, since it weighs (with all my original hardware installed) as much as my old case without a power supply did.
It's a breeze to set up if you RTM, or know how to build systems effortlessly. :)

Cons: I have owned this system for quite some time and the only problems I've had with it were either from human error or old devices giving out. Many of my older CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives were giving problems, but a brand-new SATA DVD-RW drive solved all that. :)

Other Thoughts: The computer starts up with the fans at full blast. If you hold the reset button, you can cool it down in an emergency situation, but it is nifty, expecially if a fan was ever to go out.

I have an X800XL installed in my system, and I cut and reconnected the PCI-E power connector to the 6-pin power connector (for Processor, I assume), and I was amazed that it worked.

The two molex power connector issue isn't a problem when you figure out that a floppy power adapter (included) also functions as a molex adapter when used in conjunction with the motherboard connector fitting one. :)

5 out of 5 eggsSo fast and so quiet!

Pros: Runs Silet
Runs Fast
Runs Cool
Easy to Assemble

Cons: I haven't found anything bad about this system yet!

Other Thoughts: Just got this system Monday and it runs great! Easy to put together and talk about quiet! This thing has more fans than my tower and it is quieter!

P4 3.2GHz Prescott Proc
Sapphire X800 GTO2 25MB
1 GB DDR400(PC 3200) RAM
Shuttle DVD+RW
Hitachi Deskstar 7200RPM 150 GB SATA HD(Real quiet drive!)

This little machine will be replacing my old 2.8 GHz tower and the change is well worth it.

Thanks NewEgg!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat System

Comments: Just got one of these and man am I happy. Put a P4 3.2 with some Corsair PC3200 Memory (1gig) and it its flying. I had a small noise issue when I put my WD 250gig SATA near the back where the fans are but it went away when I moved it up near the CDROM. I think the fans where making the IDLE noise much louder than they actually are. Buy the by this is a top notch system and really saves you lots of space. I also put in a Rosewill X800 without the power adapter and havent had a problem yet.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent case ... kinda noisy

Comments: I bought this case to replace my current tower. I'm very happy with it - love the look and the features and was pretty easy to get up and running.
My only complaint is the noise level - this is just as noisy as my tower (so I'm not complaining much). I would NOT use this as an HTPC. My work machine is a Shuttle ST61G4 which is almost silent comparatively.

4 out of 5 eggsHighly recommended

Comments: <a href='' target=_blank></a>

Overall I'm quite happy with this system and have no problem recommending it to others. Newegg's shipment was characteristically quick with all of the parts arriving in just a couple of days. The interior is very well designed and the cable layout is very clean. The instruction manuals with Shuttle PCs are never great, but these were actually pretty decent (except for some important omissions noted below).

My only complaints are that the system is not quite as quiet as I had hoped although it's acceptable. I suppose that it's actually pretty quiet for having five fans (six with the video card), just don't expect silence. Also, for a system with so many fans, there is very little airflow for the hard drive mounted at the top and toward the front of the case. The disk I have mounted there runs quite hot. The other top-mounted drive has more open space around it and is closer to the case fans and seems to run cooler.

There are two important things to know which are not documented with the product, but are documented on Shuttle's website. These are:

(1) If you are planning on using a PCI Express video card, there is a special connector on the motherboard which must be connected to power with a supplied cable or you risk dammaging your video card!!!! I'm docking them a star for this omission.

(2) Shuttle has a list of optical drives that have been tested to ensure the disc tray will fit through the opening in the case. I had to pop the front bezel off of my Plextor drive and shave about 1mm off of the top of it in order to get it to fit. I've read reviews that indicated problems getting the eject button linkage lined properly, but in my case this was easy.

4 out of 5 eggsShuttle XPC Barebone System

Comments: I am running a Pentium 4 LGA, 775 3.2 processor. One thing that I recommend is to have patients to put this little puppy together. First I would recommend to install a SATA HD and not a ATA 133 HD. Using the SATA will make much easier to run cable. One of the problems with the XPC is that it only has two power cables and they are not long enough.
Other than that it runs great.
