    Shuttle Inc., the small form factor PC market leader, and manufacturer of multi form factor solutions has once again brought a smile to the faces of all PC enthusiasts. The Shuttle XPC Barebone SD39P2 is not only loaded with tonnes of features, but also boasts the stylish P2-design, and is Shuttle's newest force to be reckoned with in terms of performance.

    Shuttle's latest small form factor PC supports Intel's most modern and powerful Socket 775 processors, such as the Intel® Core[TM]2 Quad, Core[TM]2 Duo und Core[TM]2 Extreme Series models. Its capacity for up to 8 GB DDR-800 memory in dual-channel mode - spread over four memory banks - is further testament to its potential for extreme speed. Compatible with the latest PCI-Express graphics cards, such as the NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTX/7950GX2 or the ATI Radeon X1900XTX, the Shuttle XPC Barebone SD39P2 guarantees to deliver maximum playing satisfaction. And for nearly unlimited disk space, there is its capacity to accommodate up to three SATA 300 hard disks, which can be run in combination as RAID 0, 1, 5 or 10.

    So...? Its a nice system as far as gaming goes but its a bit to powerful (I believe) for CarPC use. There is almost nothing, not including gaming, that would require that much power in a car. It is a nice system however...

    I always worry about having enough juice and enough inputs for what I wanted, from running 2 different GPS apps, like Streets & Trips, and iGuidance, running a video camera in the front, and record while driving or on; police like. Running the D2B Car Computer to CarPuter to dropping 2 x 300gig hard drives in there so I can dump Movies, Music and not have any freeze-ups. I also need my AM/FM that I would be loosing and I somehow get my PCMCIA card for Wifi via cellular and my Linksys wifi card.

    For a little over 500$ for it + the screen for under 1g you can sure have a nice system, now I am worried about noise levels and how will I get power supply to the case.

    Well if you want the power (excuse the pun) then more power to you.

    For noise: it depends on where you mount it and if you will be using enough of its processing power to need the fan(s) at full speed, etc. In a situation I had with my first install I noticed that with no sound and when my 305 small block only idling I could hear the drive and the fan noise, but it was sitting on my back seat. When you are listening to something you probably wont hear it unless you have really loud drives/fans.

    For power: I don't know how much power that PC will need plus whatever you add onto it but they have an 150W Opus in the store here that is built to fit into the shuttle cases. Im assuming it will fit unless Shuttle has changed its case configuration.

    Hope this helps, good luck.

    Thank you, I will double look for something more quiet and maybe not as much this comes w/just the case and mobo. and with a 400w that's too much.

    I just have to sit down one day sketch the system, compare and get online
    and buy.

    I'm driving a big SUV so stacking it in the back won't be a problem.

    There is no way in hell a 150w Opus will power the system you spec'ed. Not even close. Sure the PSU will mount nicely in the case. But if it fits right and doesn't power the system, it's really a moot point, isn't it?

    However, that system does have some appeal, and is usable for a vehicle installation.
    My suggestions:
    1 - Get a Mobile Core 2 Duo processor. They draw very little power, as they were designed for laptops.
    2 - Go with one larger hard drive instead of two smaller ones.
    3 - Use USB devices for some hardware and power them by a PSU specifically for the USB devices.

    First of all, there is no need for multiple GPS apps, particularly to be runing at once. You'll eventually find one that you like, and simply use that.
    Many members are using their setups for the same functionality you describe (myself included) on far lower-spec hardware and don't have any problems with freeze-ups or other performance issues.

    Oh, and once you have all that media in your ride, you'll wonder why terrestrial radio was important to you in the first place....
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
