Summary: Just put togeather this yesterday and very happy with how easy it was to build. Everything worked just out of the box, no need to have to run to fry's to pick up anything. I ordered everything from amazon. Playing SC2 with plenty of detail. Very happy camper. System specs below: Intel Core i7 950 3.06GHz 8M L3 Cache LGA1366 Seagate Barracuda 7200 1.5 TB 7200RPM SATA 3Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 LG Electronics 10X Blu-ray SATA Writer Drive with Software WH10LS30K MSI GeForce...
Summary: Major quality control issue, one from amazon, one from frys and one from newegg of same model all result in some issue or another, from no outputs to usb keeps on disconnecting to faulty power supply. Specs are as follows: Intel Core i7 950 3.06GHz 8M L3 Cache LGA1366 Desktop Processor RADEON HD 5870 1GB DDR5 HDMI Graphics Card HD587XZNFC 3 x OCZ Technology OCZ DDR3 PC3-10666 1333MHz Memory Kit OCZ3G1333LV4G (12gb total) OCZ Technology 60 GB Vertex 2 Series SATA II...
Summary: I selected this computer as a replacement for a Dell 8100 which's motherboard & CPU died after just three months of use. Though initially somewhat hesitant on Shuttle, decided to give it a try with those good reviews and awesome specs. It has been already four months of continuous and heavy use (never turned off) and very satisfied with the product.
Summary: I purchased Shuttle SXJ58J3 to replace my q9550 system I had, but it was very disappointing. When I unwrapped everything, I saw top frame next to PSU was bent :( I was going to keep it because case cover would actually cover it, but overall temperature was way too high. It is also bad overclocker, but this isn't for overclocking. Compared to their first i7 barebone system, SX58J3 quality overall wasn't so good.
Summary: Not my first Shuttle SFF build. This is a very well designed unit, good layout and reasonable accessibility. 500W PSU is more than adequate, and provides for about every combination of connectors you could want or need including aux power leads for the graphics card if needed. Good access and easy to build, and get up and running using only the included quick start guide and Driver/Chipset CD.
Summary: This was my first attempt at building out a bare bones system. In the past, I upgraded memory, swapped out video card etc. So, I thought I would take the plunge. Assembly was a breeze. Just enough room to move around within the chassis. Like others had noted, great step by step instructions. Really, the only challenge was understanding how to apply the thermal paste. A quick visit to youtube and I was ready to go.
Summary: This is my second Shuttle. I bought this to build a replacement for a top-of-the line Dell XPS 730 that was so over-engineered it couldn't get out of its own way. This machine, after adding an i7-930 processor, 8GB of ram and the NVIDIA Quadro 580 card, runs rings around a machine that cost 4x as much, with none of the heat, noise, bulk or weight.
Summary: This is my first shuttle and I have to say I am impressed at how easy I put this together. The instructions are straight forward and easy to follow. The ICE CPU cooler is real sweet and goes together real nice. They even include some grease. I flashed the Bios with the latest and installed the drivers with NO issues on win 7 ultimate. Used an Intel I930 2.8Ghz, and OCZ Agility SSD as a primary and a Samsung spinpoint for my main storage.
