Pics are finally up! Take a look!

img0008p.th.jpg

This is a standard front on shot of the shuttle. I put a DVD drive in and don't have the silver fan controller but ah well, looks OK.

img0009r.th.jpg

Side view. Was thinking of cutting out a window but can't be bothered now and I like the "Shuttle" written on the side.

img0010v.th.jpg

Rear view. You can see that I have cut the fan grille out and also mounted the fan to the outside of the case. It is powered on but you can't see the blue LEDs because of the light. Look at my other pics to see the LEDs! Not a massive amount of ports but its got firewire and I can put an ESATA bracket in the PCI slot next to the video card so I'm pretty set.

img0011j.th.jpg

Here's the video card, the HD 4670 with a passive Zalman cooler. You can't really see but I have cut part of the drive cage out to allow the third heatpipe to fit. The card has not exceeded 50C at idle all day which is slightly better than my old X1950pro did with a fan running at 35%.

img0012kp.th.jpg

The PSU side. Nothing much to say, looks all neat and tidy enough.

img0013ox.th.jpg

This is where the HDD, optical drive, fans, and fan controller all connect so it's pretty messy. Under the cables is where the fan would normally mount in front of the heatsink. You can also see part of the passive GPU cooler which takes up the PCI slot behind it.

img0016y.th.jpg

Let there be light! Sorry for blurry photo, it's hard with a disco ball!

img0017k.th.jpg

Better photo of the fan. Note the Champion System sticker. Got that at a mountain bike race but it goes well with PC's too :P

img0019dp.th.jpg

Going cross-country.

So yeah, other pics I did have somehow were lost off ImageShack or something, but anyway :lol:

You made that picture with the axle in your hand? :sneaky:

Small system, not the newest one but those shuttles do look good indeed. Digeratiprime is a HUGE fan of those too by the way.

Haha I should have put the axe leaning up against it to showcase how tough these little things are. It gets bits cut out of it, carried around outside to take that photo, a way better graphics card and HDD than it should have, I reckon it would withstand an axe no probs :whistle:

Yeah its pretty old but I got the mobo, case, PSU, optical drive and CPU second hand so all those things cost me under $200. Then just got the RAM, HDD and graphics card as well as the main fan, one PSU fan and fan controller all new. Its pretty quiet too but I still have to replace the other PSU fan with a slightly quieter one and maybe put a Noctua fan in for a push/pull CPU heatsink configuration.

Thanks for the tip on image hosting, I will check it out.

Not a bad little machine, I sold off my Shuttle above, but am eventually planning on building a miniITX system based around a Silverstone SG06 case. Probably be a Core i5 750, Gigabyte's new M-IXT mobo, 4GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM, 1TB drive, and one of the awesome new GTX 460's.

Just loved how small Shuttles and ITX systems are! My Lian-Li K62 is about five times bigger than my Shuttle was :lol:

Thanks. That's what I love about them. You can't beat the size and they're powerful. I could only dream of the system you're planing on building. That's gonna be sweet! You current machine is huge compared to anything shuttle makes. That reminds me of My Dell Inspiron 537. That thing was all case and no parts LOL!

... I sold off my Shuttle above, ...

No you didn't, YOU AXED IT! :lol:

The new 460 from nVidia is indeed a nice card, just in between the 5830 and 5850 from ATI, but at the price of an 5830 (for now).

Ha I have a lot of room in my PC, especially with the HDD cage out and the HDD in a 5.25" bay using an adapter.

LOL yes I axed it, a friend of mine owns it so I still get to see it sometimes.

Over here the 460 cost about $40 less than a 5830 yet beats it in every test. Plus uses less power, runs cooler and overclocks enough that it BEATS a 5850! Mad card, finally NVIDIA came up with a good GTX 4xx card!

Was originally going to get a 5850 when I build a M-ITX system but now a 460 would suit me better. They are smaller too which is a plus for when building a system so tiny.

Actually I think it's Palit that make a non-reference 460 which is just 190mm long yet comes overclocked to be as fast as a 5850! But don't like the look of the cooler so was going to get a Galaxy GTX 460 Super OC.

In fact here's the Galaxy card review: http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/3405/galaxy_geforce_gtx_460_super_oc_1gb_video_card/index.html

It also compares the Palit card plus a GTX 470, 5830 and 5850. On average the Galaxy 460 beats the 5850 which is about $100 more expensive! Also SLI scales awesome on these things, two 460's are pretty insane for the price usually beating a 5970. But I'm restricted to one card in a ITX system :lol:

I should probably take some pics of my main rig to show you guys, but first it need a dust clean :whistle:

Must be the other side of the world ;). Here in the Americas they are the same price. I must say that I look more at the DX11 benchmarks myself but you are right about that card; nVidia puts on some aggressive marketing that could save their behinds.

Yes indeed, the 460 is great value for the price and SLI works wonders. Am actually contemplating not building an ITX system, but instead upgrading to an i5/i7 rig with a GTX 460, full sized mobo etc and keeping my current case. Then I could always get another 460 to SLI if I wanted for performance far better than a 480 or 5870 at a similar price.

In the end I did not build a M-ITX rig, I just kept mine and did some minor changes:

Thanks!

It's even better now, got black sata cables that are harder to see behind the HDD's.

I also routed the front power cable under the mobo and straight out into the front headers on the mobo which hides them a little bit more.

Then I zip-tied the two little white cables down in the far bottom right, not that you could see them once the side panel/window was on.

Lastly I unplugged one more cable from the PSU (sata power) and instead used the last molex available on the single molex modular cable that is connected to the PSU and plugged in a molex to dual sata power adapter. So there is now one less cable coming from the PSU. There is only the hardwired 24 pin, 8 pin and 4 pins, as well as one modular cable with three molex connectors on the end, and two 6 pin modular cables to the GPU.

All case fans connect to a front fan controller in case you didn't realize, and all hidden very well as they do not enter from the inside front of the 5.25" bays as you would normally expect ;)

Recently I have built a new gaming box just for taking to LAN parties so this gaming case with flashy lights etc will be sold and replaced with a Fractal Design Define R3 black :D

Haven't really upgraded my PC as such, just had a new monitor and smaller speakers to tidy up the desk:

Got the Dell UltraSharp U2410 24".

Needed a more precise monitor with 110% Gamut level for my photography.

Those are nice screens indeed with a IPS panel in it. Set the screen as much in height as you can, try to get used to it. I see that you have it set low on your pictures.

Yep an 80mm Noctua, there is also an 80mm Noctua in the PSU. The two white fans are enermax clusters and look awesome with their white LED's turned on:

The whole thing started as a budget project meant to create a decent "sleeper" PC for gaming, and it turned into my main rig :P

More pictures of it's current state are on page 9 of that thread :)
