Features of the SN45G XPC
The Shuttle XPC comes in a cool retail packaging which comes with a plastic carry handle on the top. This in very convenient as it can double as a carry bag for the system if you want to transport it to and from LAN parties. This package hasn't changed since the SV25 XPC.
Upon opening the package, we find the system to be neatly packed in foam spacers to prevent transport damage along with a few accessories. These accessories include a Standard Floppy disk cable, one IDE cable, TV Out cable, CPU shim, screws and two user manuals.
Talking a look at unit itself, we see the same style that has made the Shuttle XPC such a hit. Gone are the days of using plastic face plates like with the original XPC. Shuttle has now gone with full aluminum plating, making the case look much better.
Like the front of the original XPCs, the front panel ports have remained the same. These ports include a SPDIF Out, Microphone, Headphones, two USB 2.0 ports and one Firewire port. The LEDs on the case have been moved to directly above the front access ports, as have the buttons for the power and reset functions, essentially the case is identical to the SN41G2.
The back of the case is pretty well standard for the XPC line. Located on the right hand side is a small 40mm port for the vent fan for the 200w PSU. Just off to the left is a 80mm vent for the I.C.E cooling system to vent hot air from the inside the system. Just to the right of that are two full sized expansion slots, one for a PCI card and one for an AGP card.
The interface ports are quite different compared to standard ATX layout, and slightly differ from the SN41G2 we reviewed a while ago. Firstly the two CRT ports have been plugged up as the Ultra 400 nForce2 Northbridge does not support any integrated video controller, this means that you will need an external video controller, aiming it towards the high end users.
