Shuttle XPCs any good?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have been thinking about making my next computer a SFF PC. Shuttle seems like a good brand for SFFs, but I have never read a review of there motherboards. Are they any good? Can they be overclocked?

I'm not shure about the Oc, but I've seen people build in Watercooling insode these small shuttles, so I gues oc is a possibility.

Don't know about overclocking, but they're suppossed to be pretty good otherwise. Also, you'll be able to find SLI on one of their models.

Some of them can get pretty good overclocks... anandtech had a good review about them. The ATI Shuttle coud only get to 205, so you have to do your research. the BIOSTAR 330P was what I was about to get before I realized I could afford it.

Also, a lot of them (e.g. the 330P) have proprietary air cooling with heatpipes, etc. The 330P, you'll have to worry more about video card heat than CPU heat. It's also $360, as opposed to a good mATX build for $200 (Case, PSU, Mobo)

Might as well get a micro ATX case, it's cheaper and pretty small. That's what I ended up doing. Trust me, I did a LOT of research. I even looked into intell SFFs... just not enough PCI slots for what I need, and too much $$$.

Personally, if I got a SFF case I would aim more for silent and just have it run at stock speed and be happy with it, to that end Shuttles are about as good as it gets in the SFF arena.

Thats what I plan to do, although it would be nice if I could get a small overclock out of it.
