1. Features, specifications
Today we have in our labs one of the latest Small form factor PC by Shuttle, based on the P45 Intel chipset. The SP45H7 promises to deliver high performance, stability and quiet operation for users who need more than a standard PC case.
The Shuttle Prima SP45H7 is based on the company's new H7 chassis design. It is designed to provide quality and flexibility to gamers who chase for high end gaming station. The SP45H7 supports the newest Intel Core2 Quad Processors, DDR2 1066(OC), PCI Express Gen 2.0 architecture, 1600Mhz FSB, Serial ATA 3 Gb/s, 80 plus low power consumption . The platform produces less than 28dBs when runs heavy software applications, according to the official specifications.
Supports Intel Core2 Quad / Core2 Duo/ Dual-Core/Celeron 400 series
With four execution cores, the Intel Core2 Quad processor blows through processor-intensive tasks in demanding multitasking environments and makes the most of highly threaded applications.
Intel P45 Express Chipset
Desktop PC platforms based on the Intel P45 Express Chipset, combined with either the Intel Core2 Quad processor or Intel Core2 Duo processor, drive performance and state-of-the-art technology to mainstream and performance platforms.
New Chassis Design
The new Shuttle H7 aluminum chassis structure is designed for light weight and rust proof. The large interior space allows full length graphic card and availability for upgrade. The new H7 chassis enlarges a fan of PSU up to 5cm, which encourages better thermal efficiency for the complete system. The front panel includes a built-in eSATA connector for easy access to a variety of media content and facilitate the connection.
PCI-E 2.0 Interface
PCI Express 2.0 provides greater flexibility and reliability in design and can dynamically manage power and performance through software controls. The improved bandwidth capability enables much higher levels of performance on graphics-intensive applications such as high-end gaming and video rendering.
Dynamic Over-clocking Technology
User friendly Dynamic Over-clocking feature enabling an easy way to over-clock your system to BIOS presets (3%, 5%, 7% and 10%). For more advanced users wanting more options additional voltage and frequency settings are available including the tuning of FSB, NB core, SB core and PCI-E.
Integrated Cooling Engine (ICE)
Integrated Cooling Engine (ICE) uses convection cooling to dissipate heat away from and around the CPU up to 140W. Copper tubes coated in nickel enhances tube hardness and rust-proof protection are filled with distilled water, effectively channels heat away, providing high efficiency processor and chassis cooling.
All Solid Capacitors Motherboard Design
All solid capacitors design is the new trend for Shuttle's motherboard and guaranteed to deliver maximum stability, reliability and longer system lifetime for the ultimate PC gaming and entertainment experience.
80 PLUS Certified Power Supply
The 80 PLUS performance specification is a standard which requires power supplies in computers and servers to be 80% or greater energy-efficient. This makes an 80 PLUS certified power supply at least 33% more efficient than current power supplies. The SP45H7 is guaranteed by 80 PLUS BRONZE certification.

*) Overclocking Warning
Please note there is a certain risk involved with overclocking, including adjusting the setting in the BIOS or using third-party overclocking tools. Overclocking may affect your system stability or even cause damage of the components and devices of your system. It is done at your own risk and expense. Shuttle cannot be held responsible for possible damage caused by overclocking.
**) Dynamic Overclocking Technology (D.O.C.)
This is the overclocking function in the BIOS Setup, which is designed to detect the load balance of CPU while running programs, and to adjust the best CPU frequency automatically. When the mainboard detects CPU is running programs, it will speed up CPU automatically to make the program run smoothly and faster. When the CPU is temporarily suspending or staying in the low load balance, it will restore the default settings instead.
***) Dynamic Energy Saving (D.E.S.)
The Dynamic Energy Saving (D.E.S.) technology helps to improve power efficiency significantly and reduces heat inside the case. A special chip monitors the CPU load by the CPU's Power State Indicator (PSI) signal and switches on/off 3 out of 4 of the MOS power phases depending on stress and load of the system. This hardware-based technology helps to eliminate wasted energy. Lower power consumption also means less noise from cooling systems as a consequence.
