I've had about 6 Shuttle computers, now. I was using this miniature form long before any of my associates or family knew about them. I like them so much, I even use one at work. But there have been some disturbing results, the last few years.

I've had two previous Shuttles develop motherboard issues, and when my latest one (about 3 years old) started acting whacky, I quickly backed everything up and started troubleshooting. Power Supply and all the different add-ons tested fine. It was yet another bad Shuttle motherboard. That makes 3 out of 6 -- not good news.

So I really hesitated on buying the Z77R5. Only time will tell if I made the right decision, but part of my reason was I needed to get up and running quickly -- and I know my way around the Shuttle design. I did a lot of research and weighed the Pros and Cons -- and here are my observations...

1) The box is not any more-cheaply made than any of the previous Shuttles. They have never been cast iron. The covers have always been adequate -- as is this one. This one has the added benefit of a brushed finish which helps hide fingerprints.

2) I do not like the cable layout and routing schemes on this design. There are none. Everything is just kind of laying there, and you have to find a way to manipulate them to wherever they need to go. Granted, it isn't far to go, but some are tight or barely reach.

3) The Gigabyte 660 GTX Ti Video Card will fit, but the CD/DVD Drive Cage is in the way of the connectors for power. So any cards with top edge-mounted Power Connectors are a problem. If you desire this card, you'll need to look for "90 degree PCI Power Connector Extender" and buy two. Even then, you'll need to be careful on routing them.

This is not my first shuttle build, and while I like the combination of features, the compact form factor, and the fit and finish of everything in one...I think Shuttle has missed the mark just a bit with the R5 chassis. 99% of the design is great...but seriously...the door and button for the ODD is very third rate. If it were possible to remove the fold down door and just have the ODD there, I wouldn't have deducted a star, as it is, I am stuck with something that I believe a third grader could have done better with.

The ODD screw-up behind me, the rest of the build quality is great. As far as included accessories...I would have preferred that they included right angle SATA cables as opposed to the straight connectors that are included. The only other issue is the USB 3.0 internal connector/header is directly under the drive cage. The header on the MB doesn't have a socket, only bare pins, so the cable flexes and I'm worried the strain of the cable might bend the pins on the MB.

On another thought, it's nice to have the Mini PCI-E and M-SATA sockets, but it would be nice if Shuttle offered a solution for adding WI-FI antennas. They left knockouts in the back of the case for antenna jacks (three of them)...but they don't offer a kit to wire it. According to my measurements, you would need about 12" to 14" of internal cabling so as not to interfere with components and leave just enough slack on the cables (especially if you intend to use a dedicated graphics card). Problem is, try finding headers in that length (most I find on here are 3" to 9" long).

I am happy with the purchase.
No issues, no problems, no hack required.
Takes little space, yet powerful and quiet.

Here are the parts:
- Intel Core i7-3770 Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz 4 Core LGA 1155 - BX80637I73770
- Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10)
- EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti SSC 1024MB GDDR5 128bit, Dual Dual-Link DVI, Mini HDMI, Graphics Card (01G-P4-3652-KR) Graphics Cards 01G-P4-3652-KR
- WD Blue 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive: 3.5 Inch, 7200 RPM, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache - WD10EZEX
- Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit (OEM) System Builder DVD 1 Pack
- Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750
All ordered from Amazon.

Two remarks:
(1) Logitech keyboard's receiver when plugged into USB port on backside panel behaved erratically.
Plugged at front panel USB fixed the issue.
(2) I found information about software updates at Shuttle web site somewhat confusing.

If you've done your research on this box, you'll know that if you've got an Ivy Bridge processor you'll need to have BIOS version 107 or higher installed just to boot the machine.

Some of these boxes have been shipping with older BIOS versions, meaning that anyone with a newer processor is basically screwed unless they request a new BIOS chip from Shuttle. (They'll Fedex you the chip at no charge, and swapping it out takes literally 5 seconds.)

I purchased through Amazon seller "Platinum Micro". A sticker on the motherboard indicated it came from the factory with 106, but when I booted up with my Ivy Bridge chip in there, I was happy to see that 107 was already loaded. So no worries there.

This is a great little box. Not the quietest thing in the world, but the included heatpipe system seems to work well enough. Once you install the drive cage things get really tight, so routing cables becomes a bit of an art.

So far no complaints. Been running Win7 on here for a few weeks and no problems at all!
