    Shuttle unveiled the XPC Z77R5 mini-PC barebone at CeBIT. It is built into a familiar-looking XPC chassis, but with a new motherboard based on the Intel Z77 chipset, which lends it support for "Ivy Bridge" Core i7/i5/i3 processors out of the box, apart from support for LGA1155 "Sandy Bridge" processors. Connectors include six USB 2.0, four USB 3.0, HDMI, DVI, RJ-45 (gigabit Ethernet), 2x SATA 6 Gb/s, eSATA, and 8-ch HD audio. There are four expansion slots, one PCI-Express 3.0 x16, one PCI-Express 2.0 x4, and two mini-PCIe.

    The chassis includes drive bays for 1 5.25" drive (such as optical drives), two internal+exposed 3.5" bays, for gadgets such as card readers. The power supply is rated at 500W, with 80 Plus Bronze efficiency rating. The XPC Z77R5 chassis measures 32.5 x 21.5 x 19.8 cm (DxWxH). Pricing and availability information was not given out.

    IIRC it will fit a 11.5 inch card. these cases are quite long and have room for GPU

    I've been wanting to go to a SFF case like this for portability... however what about the PSU? Are they worthy enough to run an i7, gtx570 and whatever else? seems like they would be wimpy.

    I would think you probably could get away with a 570, but you'd be VERY close to the top of that PSU. OCing would be out of the question. I'd say stop at the 560Ti. Then you're not running that PSU full bore, and you might be able to enjoy that 80+ bronze efficency.

    You would pretty much be dependent on the quality of the PSU - i have seen an OC'ed i5 750 at 4.2 and GTX 480 OC'ed on a 450W PSU, but it was a nice unit made by FSP.

    If its a joker 500W unit you will be out of luck - but if it is a decent brand you would be able to throw pretty much anything you want in there.

    The noise is what kills these boxes in the end. They are LOUD.
