Shuttle PC50 Shuttle Releases 300W Silent X PSU

Shuttle has added the PC50, a 300W power supply, to
its range of XPC Accessories. The PC50 has been designed to reflect the growing trend towards SATA hard
disk drives over older IDE ones. It includes 2 SATA power connectors in addition
to its 3 molex and 1 FDD connectors, allowing it to support combinations of hard
disks, optical drives, floppy disks and graphics cards. Shuttle’s Silent X technology has been incorporated into the PC50, ensuring
that the increase in power output does not mean an increase in noise too. During
testing, noise output levels of the PC50 were measure at less than 30dB. The
PC50 is expected to be available in several major markets – USA, Europe, Japan,
Taiwan – in as little as two weeks.

Shuttle Inc – the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of small form
factor (SFF) PCs and accessories – has added the PC50, a 300W power supply, to
its range of XPC Accessories.

“PC components, in particular CPUs, graphics cards, and storage, are continuing
to grow ever larger and more powerful. The PC50 is the optimal solution for
Shuttle and its customers to support the ever increasing demand for power placed
upon XPC systems by the latest technological advances,” explained James Chang,
product director, Shuttle.

Typically, XPCs are fitted with a 200-250W power supply unit which is enough to
satisfy the needs of most mainstream users. However, gamers and power-users who
want to install high-end graphics cards and CPUs, need multiple hard disk and
optical drives, or want to fine-tune the performance of their XPC with
overclocking, will find that the additional power supplied by the PC50 improves
the stability and expandability of these systems.

Also, the PC50 has been designed to reflect the growing trend towards SATA hard
disk drives over older IDE ones. It includes 2 SATA power connectors in addition
to its 3 molex and 1 FDD connectors, allowing it to support combinations of hard
disks, optical drives, floppy disks and graphics cards.

The PC50 replaces the XPCs existing power supply with a simple ‘1, 2,3, Easy
Install’ procedure that can be performed by any end-user. All leads are designed
to be the perfect lengths for the XPC. The result is a tidy case interior,
something that is diffi cult to achieve with generic components, but is
important for optimal cooling and system noise reduction.

Shuttle’s complete XPC Accessories range comprises of over 20 items designed
especially for the XPC. XPC Accessories give users the option to expand their
XPC systems with connectivity, portability, or capacity upgrades as their
computing needs change, without the need to replace their entire system.
