    The OFFICIAL post pics of your SFF thread...

    I would have bought a 6990, but unfortunately it will not fit in the Shuttle. (as mentioned it is about 1" too long) :(

    The OFFICIAL post pics of your SFF thread...

    Thanks for the compliments! Even with the internal 500W PSU powering only 1 8-pin power connector on the 590 - the tiny PSU fan is the loudest thing in the system as it is working full bore when I fire it up for gaming. The only changes that I made to this system from when I was running the...

    ASUS GeForce GTX 590 Video Card Review @ [H]

    I had that cover originally modded for my GTX 295 and it's a bit tight at the front as you pointed out for the 590 - I'll definitely keep an eye on it and will likely open it up some more to allow better air flow - Thanks! I have modded all of my Shuttle PC's over the past several years for...

    ASUS GeForce GTX 590 Video Card Review @ [H]

    Is this [H]ard enough? :cool: I had a GTX 295 in this PC previously and doubled my FPS in Crisis 2 from 50 - 100 with the GTX 590. (Primarily use is for my multi monitor racing cockpit setup for Shift2 and F1 2010) Shuttle 500W PSU + 250W Drive bay PSU installed

    New SFF gamers case: presentation and advices

    WOW, very nice looking SFF case! I have always liked the Lian Li styling of their V1000 cases with the rounded edges and brushed aluminum (but dislike their boxey SFF cases). You guys have nailed the styling and internal layout to allow for optimal cooling - I'm very interested to see the...

    X58 Shuttle - SX58H7 First Impressions!

    I still have the SX58H7 as my main gaming rig, but only fire it up occasionally as I don't seem to have the time any more. I played through the last COH expansion pack and more recently some Dawn of War II on it and have not had any issues. Video card temps peak between 80--85C with my modded...

    Asus P5E-VM HDMI: best matx ever?

    I'm having a weird issue with my P5E-VM HDMI - It won't boot into Windows when I have a Q9400 CPU with an 8800GTX or 8800GTS + X-Fi (It works with either the video card and no X-fi or X-fi and onboard video). I just get a flashindg cursor after post. Strange thing is that if I use my C2D E6400...

    Washed my hands of Shuttle due to thier problems. How many others?

    There are a few Shuttle models that caused me some major headaches - ST20G5 was the worst and I know there were like 3 different revisions of SN95G5, depending on which one you had I can sympathize! I have tried just about every high end mATX case and the best performing MB's and find that I...

    X58 Shuttle - SX58H7 First Impressions!

    The Shuttle SX58H7 is based on intel X58 chipset and has (2) PCI-E x16 slots that support SLI and X-Fire. It is the smallest SLI / X-Fire system available and can fit 10.5" length video cards. The only downside is you are limited to single slot cards in a dual GPU configuration. I was able to...
