Summary: really really a good case. campact, boot without problem, sleek, support E5 cpu and gtx 780 with ease. So good, that i can cry. it is a pain to install all components, but it totally worth it!!! Love it!!!
Summary: Believe it or not I am using this machine with 32 GB of RAM as a cheap way to provision virtual machines that I use for development, builds, QA, product configuration and installation testing. These are all low-CPU demand, non-production virtual machines.
Summary: I have been using the Shuttle computers as servers in a Linux cluster for many years. I have bought/built at least a dozen of them with very positive experience. However I had some trouble with this one, SX79R5 with an Intel Core i7-3930K Hexa-Core Processor.
Summary: Found it very easy to install components. At first it would not POST. I submitted a case with Shuttle the day after Thanksgiving and received a response on the following Tuesday. This was great response considering it was over a holiday and weekend. Shuttle offered to RMA and replace the box.
Summary: Intel 3930, Revo 3x2 hard drive, 7750 Radeon, blu ray, 2x4TB hard drives... Setup Windows 7 pro 64. Having a heck of a time trying to get the usb 3 ports working properly. They will work for a bit and then crash the system. I contacted the seller and they suggested updating the drivers & bios.
Summary: Got this item and bought all compatible components per Shuttle website. Computer doesn't turn on and their support is irresponsive. Do yourself a favor. Buy a brand with a better customer support.
Summary: So far so good, Win 7 CableCard Media Center. (USB Ceton tuners) I've been running this a few days, and it seems solid. The SX58J3 Shuttle PC I had before this one lasted a couple years, but died. I like the form factor so I'm willing to give the next gen cube case a shot.
Summary: This is a very nicely laid out system. Unfortunately it's also pretty unreliable. Mine died in the first week of use - won't post, it seems the motherboard died. Hopefully Shuttle will improve their quality; I have one of their older XPC systems from several years ago and its still going strong.
