Barebone
High-Performance Mini-PC Barebone
for Intel Core i7 CPUs up to 6 cores
SX58J3
Faster and smaller than probably any other machine on the
market! This has been achieved thanks to the use of Intel Core i7
processors with 4 or 6 cores and up to 16 GB DDR3 memory on an
X58 Express platform. The SX58J3 Barebone also includes two PCIExpress interfaces that support ATI CrossFire and NVIDIA SLI
technologies. For ultra-high speeds, even in network settings, this
model comes supplied with two Gigabit interfaces that can be
combined if need be. Users will also welcome the huge range of
easy-access connection options, with 10x USB and eSATA on front
and back panels. Finally, the 80-PLUS-certified 500W power supply
guarantees reliable performance.

Shuttle XPC Barebone SX58J3 – Special Product Features
The new J chassis series: 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 Shuttle 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 J3
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.

Based on new Intel Nahalem architecture
The Shuttle XPC Barebone SX58J3 is based on the new core
microarchitecture, codenamed Nehalem, which brings some major
changes not only to the the processor architecture but also the system
architecture. These are most significant changes:
• The memory controller has moved from the chipset to the processor
and features a triple channel DDR3 interface.
• The Intel® QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) replaces the legacy front
side bus between processor and chipset.

Supports Intel Core i7 processors with Socket 1366
SX58J3 features Socket 1366 and supports the Intel® Core™ i7
processors which come with a native quad-core or six-core design,
where all CPU cores sit on the same piece of silicon which share a
massive level 3 cache. In addition, each core supports Hyperthreading which enables this processors process eight or twelve
threads simultaneously, making it even more massively parallel and
powerful than the current Core 2 Quad CPUs.

Built-in overclocking "Turbo" mode
Originally introduced on mobile Penryn, Turbo mode simply increases
the operating frequency of the processor if conditions are cool enough
for the CPU to run at the higher frequency. Each Nehalem can run its
four cores at up to 133MHz higher than the stock frequency (e.g.
3.33GHz in the case of the 3.2GHz 965 model), or if only one core is
active then it can run at up to 266MHz higher than stock (3.46GHz up
from 3.2GHz). Benchmarks show an increase of the overall
performance by 2% to 7% if Turbo mode is enabled in the BIOS setup.

Product Specification
Dynamic Overclocking Technology (D.O.C.) *)
This is the overclocking function in the BIOS Setup, which is designed to
detect the load balance of CPU while running programs, and to adjust
the best CPU frequency automatically. When the mainboard detects
CPU is running programs, it will speed up CPU automatically to make
the program run smoothly and faster. When the CPU is temporarily
suspending or staying in the low load balance, it will restore the default
settings instead.
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 Integrated
Cooling Engine (I.C.E.) heatpipe technology delivers efficient cooling
and is exceptionally quiet.
This Shuttle XPC supports up to 16GB DDR3 memory which is ideal for
workstations powered by 64-bit operating systems, enabling users to
take full advantage of high-performance configurations.
500W power supply with 80 PLUS BRONZE logo
The Shuttle XPC Barebone SX58J3 is equipped with a rock stable 500W
power supply which has been tested with the latest graphics cards and
powerful Core i7 processors. Its 80 Plus Bronze logo indicates that it
provides more than 82/85/82% energy efficiency at 20/50/100% of
rated load which reduces energy consumption and increases the
computers reliability.
Relatively low power consumption
Despite the amount of performance on offer, the SX58J3 does a good
job of keeping power draw respectable. With Intel's 6-Core processor
Core i7 980X at 3.33GHz, ATI Radeon HD5870, 6GB DDR3 RAM, DVD
writer, SSD and Windows 7 it only consumes 101W in idle mode and
252W under full load.
New Era of All-Solid Capacitor Shuttle Mainboards
By using all-solid capacitors Shuttle mainboards provide industry
leading stability, reliability and longevity for PC gaming and
entertainment systems. The average lifespan for a solid capacitor is
more than six times greater than the more common and less expensive
electrolytic capacitors.
External Serial ATA ports on front and back panel
In addition to the eSATA port at the back panel, the SX58J3 also comes
with one eSATA at the front panel for plugging in high-speed external
hard-drives. The eSATA interface is up to three times faster than the USB
2.0 standard.

Product Specification
Supports RAID functionality
This Shuttle XPC features several internal and external Serial ATA
connectors which also support the high performance RAID functions
level 0, 1, 5 and 0+1. It is the ideal solution to enhance hard disk
performance and data back up protection without the cost of add-on
cards.
eSATA with External Power
Dual Gigabit LAN with Teaming Support
This XPC features even two high-speed Gigabit LAN ports. The teaming
function allows you to group both available network adapters together
to function as a single adapter - a method of creating a virtual LAN.
The benefit of this approach is that it enables load balancing and
failover.
*) Overclocking Warning: Please note there is a certain risk involved with overclocking, including adjusting the setting in the BIOS or using
third-party 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.

Product Specification
SX58J3 for exceptional graphics performance
Supports dual-slot graphics cards
The Shuttle XPC Barebone SX58J3 surpports large
dual-slot graphics cards which occupy two slots.
Please note, that in this case the second slot for
another expansion cards cannot be used.
Maximum dimensions for graphics cards:
273 x 98 x 38mm
Is the 500W power supply sufficient?
Yes! The highly efficient 500W power supply is
especially designed to meet the requirements of
a fully-equipped SX58J3 including Intel's six core
processor, high-end graphics card, 16GB DDR3
RAM, Blu-ray writer and two hard disks.
Graphics card power connectors
As the processing power of video cards has
increased, so has their demand for electrical
power. Since the PCI-Express connection is
limited to supplying 75 Watts, the power supply
of the SX58J3 provides a combination of 6-pin
(75W) and 6+2-pin (150W) Molex power
connectors in order to deliver sufficient energy
for reliable operation of the latest high-end
graphics cards.
