I Like it..


I built a Shuttle sn41g2v2 computer several years ago and it still is going strong today. I got a Refurb from newegg. (So I am assuming I have a former DOA from one of you unlucky people) It works great, haven't had a single problem with it. Using Dual...

Limited Overclocking abilities ; Seems to be lower quality that older shuttles

Need to say it....


i7-870 Slightly OCed' GTX 460 16GB DDR3 160GB SSD 2TB HD DVD Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Works great, temps a within reason for such a cramped environment. Games like a champ! Thinking about getting the 500watt pc93 and upgrading to a 560 or a 6950.

Works with everything I purchased to put in this computer

Limited expansion ; Setting up usb was a pain

No Post


Have built several Shuttles in the past, but this is my last Shuttle Project. There are some serious issues with this product.

If it worked at all, I could say something here

Tried two of these neither would post with i3 processor. Sent the first back, same result with second unit. Even bought new RAM but same issue ; Got tired of spending my weekends (and money) trying to get it to work. sent it back again
