Shuttle's nforce2 cube?

Postposted on Tue Aug 27, 2002 10:24 pm

Is there a projected release date out for Shuttle's nforce 2 cube? An Athlon based Shuttle designed cube with a AGP slot seems very good. I've just heard that it being made but I'm wondering when we could see it in the stores.

This is a one man thread! :D Am I the only one interested in this system?

After some searching, I found a thread where someone speculating that it will be out in October, however Nvidia's possible delay of the Nforce2 could push the relese date further back.

Apparently it will be named the SN40 or SN41 I'm not sure which is correct, or if there are going to be two models. If there are going to be two models I have no idea what the difference will be.

In any event, I'm sure it will be hell cool. Probably it will be priced around $500US. I've seen SS51s priced here for about $450 in stores.

Do I need such a system? No. Can I afford one? No. Will I buy one? Probably yes. 8)

Because they are small and have poor cooling, Shuttle's cubes, or other cube comptuers for that matter, don't overclock well. Shuttle will probably not put in a lot of bios options for the FSB or voltages, like they limited options in the SS51. We'll just have to be satisfied with stock speeds.

Actually the Shuttle runs pretty cool. Check out how they use the heat riser tubes to go to a powered radiator.
The problem with overclocking the shuttle lies in the BIOS. You can up the speeds but you cannot add Voltage. This will limit you choices on overclocking

Replacing parts

Postposted on Sun Dec 29, 2002 11:49 pm

Off hand does anyone know what the story is with spare parts.Since the shuttles are so small and queit-ish I was considering having one in the kitchen and leaving it running 24/7/365 for a community wan that we have.As you can imagine the power supply is bound to pack in at some stage and since it is probally not a normal one how handy are they to pick up.Also the fan used to cool the rad type heat sink for the cpu is that a normal 80m fan?
Thanks

Normal 80mm fan, funky proprietary PSU, might be hard to replace...

Why not get a full sized PSU, tape it to the side, run the wires in though the old PSU hole (assuming the current PSU packs in, which isn't a given).
