    Hmm........

    Anyway, now we've had a couple of humorous pictures, I got the machine built up.

    This Shuttle form factor is quite nice to work on. Everything seems to be accessible, and everything fits together nicely.

    I installed the HDD from the old machine, the Samsung SSD, and a SATA DVDRW drive. I installed Debian 9 on the SSD. My first impressions of the Intel UHD graphics weren't too good. It would play HD video fine, but it barely managed 5 fps in Super Tux Kart. I'm wondering if it might be some Linux driver weirdness. So, I put the Radeon HD7770 in from my old PC and now I can easily get 60 fps in Super Tux Kart .

    The machine does overall seem nice and speedy.

    The CPU fan is quiet, as is the little PSU fan. Definitely quieter than the 80mm fans I have in my Lian Li case. The blue power LED on the front panel was annoying though, so I swapped it out for a green one. It also lacks a reset switch. Why do so many modern machines not bother with a reset switch? Shuttle went to the effort of putting a Clear CMOS switch on the back of the case so I'd have thought they'd have put a reset switch in as well.

    I also tried to boot Windows XP from the Hirens boot CD but it just gave me a BSOD.

    Those Shuttles were snappy little Puppies on Intel PIV.

    Nice looking case, tidy. Dust magnet exterior though.

    Are those hard drive innards there up on the side of your filing cabinet?

    Yes, its a couple of magnets from a 3.5" HDD. I also have a load of magnets from 2.5" HDDs at the other side on my desk . They come in handy.

    And here's some DP specially for JT .
