    Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH, the European subsidiary of Shuttle Inc., one of the leading developers and manufacturers of compact PC solutions such as the world-renowned XPC Mini-PC Barebones, today launches its 2011 model with Intel X58 Express chipset and support for all Intel Core i7 processors (LGA1366).

    The Shuttle XPC Barebone SX58H7 Pro cuts an elegant figure with a black aluminium chassis, case and front panel. It also boasts two heatpipe cooling systems – ideal for ensuring optimal heat dissipation and high stability.

    Owners of this powerpack have a choice to fit either two single-slot graphics cards or one dual-slot graphics card. Two PCIe-x16-2.0 slots offer an enormous bandwidth and a separate Mini-PCIe-x1 slot allows the installation e.g. of a WLAN module.

    A further important innovation is the provision of external and internal ports to the latest standards. Shuttle's SX58H7 Pro has 2x USB 3.0 (up to 5 Gbit/s) and 2x SATA 6 Gbit/s. External storage media and internal drives (hard disks or SSDs) can now run at maximum speed. In addition, at the front and rear are 8x USB 2.0, 2x eSATA and 1x eSATA/USB 2.0 ports as well as eSATA power supply.

    Two 1000 Mbit network cards on the mainboard of the SX58H7 Pro offer maximum reliability or maximum data transmission speed. The teaming function enables the activation of failover or load balancing.

    With the 80-PLUS-certified 500 W power supply unit, a maximum configuration with 6-core processor, 16 GB DDR3 RAM, one or two modern graphics cards and three drives is possible at any time. A comparable configuration was presented live at CeBIT 2011 and silenced the skeptics.

    "The technical possibilities offered here within a space measuring just 32.6 x 20.8 x 18.9 cm are simply astounding," states Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "Although we'd be hard pushed to win an energy-saving competition with the SX58H7 Pro, in the performance per cm³ category this PC is streets ahead of its rivals."



    The XPC Barebone SX58H7 Pro is available now. Shuttle's recommended retail price is EUR 444.00 (ex VAT). For more information, visit the product page.

    I don't understand why someone would care about the size of the case if they're buying a 980X. :/

    Big things in small packages are appealing to a lot of people.

    I do. I'm using overclocked Core i7 920, 6GB of RAM, 2TB HDD and HD6870 in a microATX case.
    Its just different to have a massive boring case if you can have a nice looking little box. And with the same power as those ugly massive cases.

    Ya know when I first read this I thought they were offering a barebone with a 980X installed for 444 Euro. I was about to punt my AMD rig out the window lol

    That's interesting that the standard USB 3.0 blue isn't used. Leave it to Shuttle to ignore standards.

    I freakin' love Shuttles! I regret moving away from them and going to a full ATX. Maybe I'll return to them one day.

    I love the fact that they're able to incorporate a real psu with decent pecs itno their small builds. we have some dell optiplex 760's at work that have an annoying power brick attached which totally kills their small form factor.

    The PSUs have always been amazing. I really should rebuild my old Socket A Shuttle, love that thing!

    444.00 EUR? that's very expensive just for Bearbones, you could get an itx H67 in a Lian Li Q11 and still have decent change left to complete the build.

    Actually, it seems they are on the concealed front-panel, as seen at 0:28 in the video. Here's a screenshot, they're in between the Audio jacks & eSATA/USB port, within the obvious red circle:

    Sweet rig Whitey.

    I wonder why Shuttle are still advertising this as X58, though? Tis time to move to P67, especially for SFF gaming PCs.

    They're advertising it as an X58 rig because, it is.

    ;)

    They already have H67 based XPCs btw. I'll be interested to see if they do any AMD based rigs once Bulldozer is released.

    I realise - my comment was poorly phrased. I meant to say that I am surprised that they are still advertising and renewing barebones with their X58 motherboard, when they have perfectly good 1155 based barebones in similar cases.

    I too would be interested to see any 990FX based solution by Shuttle.

    I expect they're still trying to flog the remaining X58 parts whilst they prepare for X79 et al.

    I'll be pleased to see a Fusion based XPC as well come to think of it.

    Ya cant get a powerful 6 core anywhere else than X58 :) People who want to shell out a lot of money for their 6 core will find this AWESOME if they want SFF

    I prefer my watercooled ITX case.
