    Hi everyone!

    I've just been told by an official Shuttle reseller(?) that because of a
    combination of heat/size/power consumption issues, it is not possible to
    use anything higher than a X600 (ATI) or a 6600 (NVidia) in a Shuttle
    SB81P. Is this true...??

  2. I don't know about the SB81P but my SN85G4 has a X800XT in it with no
    problems and it only has the standard PSU and cooling. 6800 probably
    wouldn't fit though as the 6800 Ultra I have in my other PC takes 2
    slots and the extra slot is on the wrong side for some if not all

    How do the fans run on that system? Low-speed/noise most of the time, or
    are they all at full-speed to keep the box cooled?
    Do you have some temp. readings/measurements for us?

    Which X800XT do you have in that system?

  4. Fans are on the lowest setting most of the time and then step up just
    a little during gameplay. The only time they have been on full was
    during the summer when I first got the card and the air conditioning
    broke in my house and ambient temperature was around 28 degrees

    Mostly the CPU runs around 35-40 idle and 45-52 under load the most it
    got to during few days with no air-con was 59

    My CPU is an Athlon 64 3200+ and is not overclocked
    It's an Asus AX800 XT PE
