    Shuttle Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of multi-form-factor solutions such as the world-famous XPC Mini-PC Barebones, showcases two models for Intel's new 32 nm-technology processor generation (code name: Sandy Bridge) at CeBIT 2011.

    Shuttle, as the Mini-PC pioneer, is set to launch the XPC Barebone SH67H3 and SH67H7 at the end of March 2011. Both are based on the Intel H67 Express chipset and boast extremely impressive technical features to support all Intel Core 2nd generation i3, i5 and i7 processors with LGA1155. There are four DIMM slots that enable DDR3 memory support with a maximum capacity of 16 GB.

    Furthermore, these Mini-PCs are able to accommodate two 3.5" drives and one 5.35" drive with the motherboard offering 2x SATA 6 Gbit/s and 2x SATA 3 Gbit/s. Additional drives can be connected externally via eSATA or via an array of USB ports. On the front and rear of the SH67H3 and SH67H7 models there are for the first time 4x USB 3.0 and 4x USB 2.0 ports as well as 2x eSATA/USB combo ports. A Gigabit-LAN interface is also provided for fast network access and data transfer.

    All second-generation Intel Core processors have a built-in graphics function. At the rear of both SH67 models are two digital monitor outputs. With both HDMI and DVI-I connections, the user can run two monitors and enjoy seamless playback of HD content. The Mini-PCs deliver audio signals via S/PDIF or HDMI.

    Additional graphics performance is provided by the PCI-Express 2.0 x16 port which is compatible with the latest dual-slot graphics cards. If a single-slot graphics card is used, one PCI-Express 2.0 x1 port is then available for expansion cards. The third expansion option is the Mini-PCIe port, which can be used for various applications, e.g. a WLAN module.

    A 300 W, 80-PLUS-certified power supply unit ensures the compact PC is able to deliver high performance. The overall system is cooled by means of a heatpipe with a large speed-regulated fan.

    "With one machine available in two different designs, consumers are able to choose their preferred option. The H3 design is more traditional and all connectors are directly available. The H7 on the other hand has a more elegant look and all connectors are elegantly hidden from view behind drive doors," states Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "With these new models, we are responding to the commonly expressed wish of our customers to go back to aluminium as the material for the chassis and
    case cover."

    Shuttle's recommended retail price for the Barebone SH67H3 is EUR 239.00. For the XPC Barebone SH67H7 the recommended retail price is set to EUR 251.00 (both prices ex VAT).

    Actually, I returned lga 1156 Shuttle because its front I/O was covered with weak plastic. Personally, I welcome their revised front design.

    Yeah, all these PR releases have been confusing to me also, the way I see it, it's more like the fourth gen actually, first there was the Core Duo, then Core 2 Duo and Quad, then the original i3, i5 and i7 series, and now the iX 2XXX series :p

    Interesting. I was thinking on more cosmetically than functionality.

    Yeah, cosmetically it's better to be covered, but Shuttle used really cheap and weak plastic cover for front I/O. If they had used metal, perhaps aluminum, cover, I wouldn't have returned it. The plastic cover was going to break sooner or later with some usage. It was that weak.

    i'm actually quite impressed by that system setup.

    300W PSU should be enough to slap in some big boy video cards too.

    looking at the panel i bet this bugger is all kinds of overly integrated i will build my own again :/

    also for the 300w i had one in my rig i3(oc'd)+9800GT is about were it tops out you could pull off an i7 with a very light oc and a mid range card

    300w is (or was) fine for a 95w cpu, 8gb ram, and HD5850. I personally had such a setup for few months. As long as OC isn't involved, you can do surprisingly much with just 300w.
