New shuttle ST61G4 owner

Discussion in 'Shuttle' started by LAWAYSHA THOMAS, Aug 28, 2004.

  1. I just got a ST61G4 delivered yesterday, and it is the coolest pc I have
    ever seen. It looks like a toy compared to a mid-tower. I can't wait to get
    it up and running. I'll be using mine as a Home Theater PC with a satellite
    pci card to recieve free to air satellite. My question is: will I have any
    problems running a Intel Prescott P4 3.0 Ghz cpu? I hear that they do run
    hot and was thinking on getting a northwood instead. I can hold my xpc in
    the palm of my hand, that's how small it is, which you guys already know
    being owners of xpc's. I just can't stop thinking how small and cool they

    Welcome to the club. The cooling is quite good but you need to ensure
    you leave plenty of clearance around the sides/rear. I relocated mine
    recently and there's only an inch of clearance around the sides of the
    case to the desk and it made a fair bit of difference to the temps.
    Still works fine but is a bit hotter than before.

    There is a new BIOS, FT61S02B, that fixes some issues that may arrise when
    running with Prescott P4 and WinXP SP2 .... check out readmeft61.htm at for more info.
