Shuttle is a well-known brand for their barebones and compact systems and they’ve strengthened their portfolio once again with the cube formatted SH81R4 model; a 19 cm tall barebone for the fourth generation of Intel Core processors using the LGA1150 socket.
“With the SH81R4 we now have an entry-level machine in cube format based on Intel’s latest generation of Core processors,” says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle. “The SH81R4 is following in the footsteps of its predecessor, the SH61R4, and offers high performance and flexibility at an attractive price.”
The new barebones system is built around an aluminium case with a customisable front panel. It has a speed-controlled heatpipe cooling system with a 92 mm fan to keep everything running smoothly and the power comes from the built-in 300W bronze certified mini power supply.
The motherboard is based on the Intel H81 chipset and has two 240-pin memory slots that support up to 16 GB dual-channel DDR3-1600 memory. It has two SATA-3 ports for high-speed SSDs and a SATA-2 port for a 5.25″ optical drive or hard disk. It further has a PCI-Express x16 Gen3 slot for dual-slot high-powered graphic cards as well as a PCI-Express x1 slot for additional expansion cards. As additional expansion slots the system provides two Mini-PCI-Express slots, one of which also accepts mSATA-SSDs.
The connectivity on the SH81R4 looks pretty great as well with two USB 3.0 and eight USB 2.0 ports. Network is provided by a RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port and it has HDMI and DVI connections for processors with built-in GPU . It has three 3.5mm audio jacks for a 5.1 channel audio setup as well as S/PDIF. It also has a CMOS button on the back.
Shuttle’s new XPC Barebone SH81R4 is only measuring 32.5 x 21.5 x 19cm (DWH) and has a MSRP of just €179,00 excl. VAT and is now available from specialist retailers around Europe.
