[1] Overclocking Warning
Please note there is a certain risk involved with overclocking, including adjusting the settings in the BIOS or using overclocking tools. Overclocking may affect your system stability or even cause damage of the components and devices of your system. It is done at your own risk and expense. Shuttle cannot be held responsible for possible damage caused by overclocking.
[2] Supports additional displays in combination with a discrete graphics card
The integrated graphics function already supports three independent displays via its digital video outputs. This PC even supports more displays in combination with a discrete PCI-Express graphics card. This function is based on the Switchable Graphics feature introduced with the 2nd Generation of Intel® Core™ processors. To enable this, please enter the BIOS Setup Utility by pressing the "Delete" key after powering on the PC, then go to the "Advanced" tab and change the "Initiate Graphics Adapter" setting to "Switchable".
[3] 4K Ultra-HD resolution
A 4K-display with Ultra-HD resolution (3840 x 2160) should be connected via DisplayPort, as only this port supports a higher refresh rate of 60Hz. The video playback performance depends on the video format, bitrate and the processor used. Daily office applications usually won't require the system to run under full load, however for smooth 4K (2160p) video playback requirements are different. An Intel Core i3 processor or higher and dual channel memory (2 or 4 modules) is recommended here.
[4] How to convert DisplayPort to HDMI/DVI
The DisplayPort outputs can be converted to HDMI or DVI by an additional, passive adapter cable. For example:
DELOCK 82590: 1m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to HDMI-A (male, 19p)
DELOCK 82435: 5m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to DVI-D (male, 24p)
The integrated graphics automatically detects the connected display and puts out the appropriate electric signal - either via DisplayPort (without an adapter) or HDMI/DVI (with an adapter).
However, a monitor with a DisplayPort connector cannot be connected to the HDMI port with a simple, passive adapter.
[5] Three independent displays simultaneously
The Shuttle XPC cube Barebone SZ270R9 supports a maximum of two displays with a DVI or HDMI input. A third digital display, if required, must be connected directly to the DisplayPort output (without an adapter).
[6] Optional Wireless LAN module (WLN-M): This XPC cube Barebone supports the optional Shuttle XPC Accessory WLN-M which consists of a M.2-2230 card with IEEE 802.11ac and BT4.0 functionality and two external antennas with appropriate antenna cables.
[7] Installation of Windows 7
The Intel® 100/200 chipset series has no support for the Enhanced Host Controller Interface (EHCI) which is the driver software for the USB 2.0 ports. The new chipset only supports the Extensible Host Controller Interface (xHCI for USB 3.0) which is not supported by the original Windows 7 installation disk. This means, that peripheral devices connected by USB (like keyboard, mouse and external optical drive) will not work during Windows 7 installation. Please therefore add the required USB 3.0 drivers to the Windows 7 installation files. This is also explained in the Shuttle FAQ section at faq.shuttle.eu.
Note: Windows 7 is only supported if a 6th generation Intel Core processor ("Skylake") is used.
[8] Turbo Button
Please make sure the following requirements are met to the Turbo Button:
1) Operating system: Windows 10
2) Intel Core processor of the K series (with unlocked multiplier)
3) Install and run the Shuttle OC-Tool. You will find the latest version of this software here.
