(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.
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).Read more ›
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.Read more ›
We're both EE's (WD, BRCM) and am pretty familiar with the hardware.
-bought this box partly b/c of the 500W (overkill/margin) PS
-Intel i7-3770S low voltage/power CPU (65W vs 78)
-2X8GB Crucial Ballistix (would only get Crucial, Sammy... we know how they are screened/binned)
-Crucial 120GB mSATA for a copy of Dell OEM Win 7 Pro (loads/runs great)
-Shuttle 802.11N mini PCIe as backup connection
-2XWD Raptors, mirrored, for data storage
OS install was easy. Boots from cold in less than 20sec.
Jealous of wife's new toy, so I'm probably gonna build another for me.
