Shuttle XPC ST20G5


I've been in the middle of testing a quartet of Shuttle XPCs in recent weeks, and they've been representative of pretty much everything Shuttle has to offer the enthusiast or power user. Supporting Intel or AMD CPUs, sporting Intel, NVIDIA and ATI core...

I didn't specifically look at the performance of the integrated graphics, despite them being an important feature of the XPC, for brevity. It's not a high-performance graphics core compared to anything above £30 spent on a discrete graphics board. A...

Shuttle's XPC ST20G5 mini-barebones system


ALTHOUGH ATHLON 64 processors undoubtedly deliver an attractive price/performance ratio, the platform's lack...

With an expected MSRP of $350, the ST20G5 looks like a pretty sweet deal. $350 is relatively inexpensive for an XPC with this many features, and you won't find another Athlon 64 cube with DirectX 9-class integrated graphics, a DVI output, and...

XPC ST20G5 mini-barebones system

Good Machine


Thise model does support higher resolution but you must first flash the bios with the latest bios update and then clear the CMOS (back in the back of the PC). After that the grahpics worked great!

This is a fast machine with a small footprint. It is very quiet and quite capable of running just about any application

Had to do a bios update and troubleshoot the screen flickering

Good Shuttle


Awesome product. Newegg got it here a day ahead of schedule.

Amazing design - super sleek and ultra compact makes it quite the eye candy on any desk. Already came pre-wired which made installing super quick and easy

Supplied RAID disk did not have proper drivers. Resolution could not go higher than 1024 by 768 without viewing problems (jittering, stuttering) even after newer drivers were installed

Good... for a month


This computer is AMAZING! when it works. Tragically it didn't work. If yours works treasure it, else, give it the boot.

Very fast! Very small. Stayed cool (surprisingly)

Compactness made it difficult to change hardware. And after working for about a month, died. After dozens of hours investigating and trouple shooting by myself and several other A+ certified technicians, the cause of the death if unknown. Died without...

Shuttle ST20G5 AMD Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 / Sempron AMD Socket 939 ATI XPRESS 200 ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Barebone


Extremely fast when paired with an Opteron processor. Plenty of room to upgrade to a certain degree, even for intense gaming ; The brushed aluminum looks great, and all the ports and drives on the front look much better than my old Shuttle XPC that...

Cool n Quiet actually makes the fan run much louder, I set mine on the lowest setting and thats where I keep it, even when gaming and editing, it keeps it cool enough ; I wish there were more USB 2.0 ports on the back though, I filled both of mine the...

Great little box


I'm glad I went with this case. I had it all together in just a few minutes. I think I spent more time making sure the DVD eject worked then I did actually putting everything else together.

This Shuttle is small, quiet, and well built. The brushed aluminium finish is nice. The fact all needed wires were pre-run was a plus. I ended up going with an SATA drive and an IDE CD. The CD-ROM eject button on the case requires a little finesse. I...

The SATA drive will require either a floppy or you to create a modified XP install to get the drivers. I bought a silver floppy, and used that. It worked fine
