Shuttle SB77G5 XPC - Socket 775 through Intel Canterwood

We've got yet another Shuttle small form factor system under the spotlight today, this time it's the SB77G5 XPC. It makes use of the Intel Canterwood chipset supporting AGP and DDR memory but supports the newer Socket 775 Intel Pentium 4 processors. Today we take a look at the XPC and what has changed (if any) as well as see what type of overclocking performance we can get from the unit.

It's been a while since we have had a look at anything from Shuttle and with word just let out of their new XPC unit designed for home theater systems it looks like we can start to see some new and exciting products coming from Shuttle in the near future.


Today however we will be looking at one of their most recent XPC's which takes advantage of the latest Socket 775 processor from Intel yet is still able to run with normal DDR memory and an AGP graphics card.


We will also be seeing if we have any luck with overclocking the SB77G5 XPC here today as it is quite a common fact that the new Prescott processors are hindered with terrible heat issues which have prevented overclocking and while Shuttle have always done an excellent job with their cooling technology in XPC units, it will be interesting to see just how it holds up against the latest processor and if they do anything to compensate for the excess heat bought on by the new generation processor.


Let's begin and take a look at one of the latest XPC small form factor units to come from Shuttle.
