Barebone
Ideal Mini-PC for the more demanding
home user
SH55J2
The revolutionary Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 processors based on Socket
1156 with high computing power and relatively low power
consumption are outstandingly suitable for Mini-PCs. With the XPC
Barebone SH55J2, Shuttle's product range now includes a model
for this processor platform. Despite its compact dimensions it still
manages to find space for a PCI-Express slot, DDR3 memory, HDMI
interface, Gigabit LAN, 8-channel audio with S/PDIF out and an
array of interfaces. With an 80-PLUS-certified 300W power supply
and effective Heatpipe cooling system, the SH55J2 keeps cool
under the toughest conditions.

Shuttle XPC Barebone SH55J2 – Special Product Features
The new J-Chassis: a clean and modern look
Shuttle has always placed great emphasis on the interior and exterior
aesthetics of the XPC, with the belief that a good blend of style and
form factor allows the XPC to be attractive, versatile, and work well in
almost any environment - whether the living room, bedroom, or office.
With the new J Series, Shuttle retains its trademark appearance and
adds a clean, modern look to the front of the XPC. The new J Series will
also be the first to bear the new XPC logo, featuring a striking "X" mark
to signify the evolution of the XPC product line.

Small, but easy to install

Shuttle's XPCs offer the power of a desktop PC in a form factor onethird the size while using standard desktop components. Shuttle kept
the concept of "future proofing" in mind when it designed the new J
Series. The meticulously designed layout features an interior cable
management system with pre-installed cables that are routed and tied
down at factory to reduce clutter, increase airflow, and ease
component installation. Shuttle has developed the ease of installation
to an Art of Perfection.
"Clarkdale" is the codename for Intel's dual-core processors derived
from the Nehalem/Westmere architecture. The processor package
contains two dies, the actual 32 nm processor with the I/O connections
and the 45 nm graphics controller with the memory interface. This
means, that the platform's northbridge component was relocated to
the CPU package. Thanks to Hyper-Threading the Dual Core i3/i5
(except i5-750) shows four threads in the Task Manager. Core i5-6xx
CPU’s feature the ability to Turbo Boost two multiplier levels above their
rated speed in certain scenarios. The Core i7 processor (45nm
Lynnfield, without graphics core) is also supported. Please refer to the
support list for detailed processor support information.

Integrated Cooling Engine (I.C.E.)
Shuttle's XPCs offer the power of a desktop PC in a form factor onethird the size. In order to ensure proper airflow inside a smaller unit,
more advanced cooling technologies have been developed and
implemented in the Shuttle XPC. Shuttle's industry-leading I.C.E.
heatpipe technology delivers efficient cooling and is exceptionally
quiet.

Product Specification
What does Barebone mean?
The Shuttle XPC Barebone SH55J2 consists of a stylish case with preinstalled mainboard, power supply unit (PSU) and cables. Despite its
small form factor it offers outstanding connectivity, functionality and
performance. For a complete PC system you still need a few
components. The XPC is completely customizable, users can pick the
processor, memory, storage and expansion options that fit their needs.
Sometimes a discrete graphics card is needed.
Supports Dual-Slot Graphics Cards
Despite the small housing, the SH55J2 is capable of running dual-slot
(double-width) PCI Express graphics cards. Please refer to the support
list for detailed support information. Note, that the integrated graphics
will be disabled, while using a discrete graphics card.
Supports one optical drive and two hard disks
Furthermore, users can install one optical drive and up to two hard
disks into the SH55J2. But what about heat? Many of the clever design
elements of the XPC get little attention. For example, the drive rack
built into the SH55J2 leaves space between the hard disks to improve
air flow. Intelligently-engineered airflow mechanics channels cool air
to where it's needed most - protecting components and providing
optimal performance.
The Intel Core i3/i5 processors integrate the Intel® HD Graphics engine
which supports full 1080p high-definition video playback, including Bluray disc movies. This powerful video engine provides users with a rich,
new media experience to deliver smooth HD playback without the
need for add-in video cards or decoders. It features Intel® Clear Video
Technology, a combination of video processing hardware and
software technologies designed to enhance the visual experience. In
addition to video, the optimized 3D graphics engine supports DirectX
10, Shader Model 4.0 and OpenGL 2.1 and delivers the performance
and compatibility you need for entertaining, everyday gameplay for
the most popular game titles.
Dual View Technology with HDMI (DVI) and VGA
Dual View technology offers multiple display support on up to two
separate monitors. This improves the capabilities and productivity of
the user by allowing them to spread multiple windows over two
monitors and view them simultaneously. The integrated Intel graphics
processor delivers best-in-class 3D performance and leading graphics
compatibility to play top games the way they are meant to be played.

Built-in Intel® HD Graphics Engine
Product Specification
PCI-Express V2.0 for high-performance graphics cards
The Shuttle XPC Barebone SH55J2 is equipped with one PCI-Express x16
Version 2.0 slot delivering a bandwidth of up to 16GB/s, twice the
speed of PCI-E 1.0, thus providing plenty of potential for the newest
graphics cards. It is downward compatible, allowing use for most of the
present graphics cards as well.
80 PLUS® Certified Power Supplies
The 80 PLUS® performance specification requires power supplies in
computers and servers to be 80% or greater energy-efficient. The
Shuttle XPC Barebone SH55J2 features a powerful 300W power supply
with 80 PLUS® validation as standard. The power supplies of the J
chassis series use a 50mm cooling fan providing the same airflow, but
spins slower than previous 40mm models to make the system run even
more quietly.
Supports up to 16GB of memory
This Shuttle XPC supports up to 16GB DDR3-1333 memory which is ideal
for workstations powered by 64-bit operating systems, enabling users to
take full advantage of high-performance configurations.
Mini-ITX Mainboard Support
©2006 by Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH (Germany). All Information subject to change without notice. Pictures for illustration puposes only.
Shuttle expands the capabilities of its chassis, adding support for MiniITX mainboards (17 x 17cm or 6.7 x 6.7 inches). Now, for the first time,
the Shuttle chassis can go beyond the Shuttle mainboard, so you can
easily upgrade or downgrade the mainboard to your desire, without
any modifications to the chassis.
