Shuttle ships XPC Barebone SH55J2 compact desktop

By on
Shuttle has unveiled a new small form factor barebones system which lets customers cram a full-fledged desktop into a shoebox-sized chassis. Measuring 33 x 21.5 x 19 cm (13 x 8.5 x 7.5 inches) the XPC Barebone SH55J2 ships with an H55-based motherboard that supports Intel's Core i3, i5 and i7 LGA-1156 processors, and Clarkdale chips are accommodated with HDMI and VGA-out.

There's room for one PCIe GPU, though heftier dual-slot cards will block the only PCI slot, up to four 4GB RAM modules, two 3.5-inch HDDs and one 5.25-inch optical drive. Connectivity includes four SATA II ports, one eSATA port, various USB 2.0 ports, gigabit Ethernet, a 4-in-1 card reader, S/PDIF output, as well as two fan 3 or 4-pin fan connectors.

The SH55J2 ships with a 300W 80-plus certified PSU, which doesn't leave much headroom for anything special on the graphics front, but it should power most low-end GPUs just fine. It also comes with the accessories you might need to get a build off the ground, such as SATA cables, screws, thermal compound, and a Windows driver disc.

Units are currently shipping on Europe with an MSRP of 251 or about $324, which will probably amount to more than $550 after you factor in a CPU, HDD and RAM.
