Shuttle Inc – the world’s leading manufacturer of small form factor PCs and
accessories – has today launch a new product to redefine what users expect from
a silent PC. “Whether it’s an office workstation, a home server, or a home
theater system, a silent PC solution offers numerous tangible benefits over a
standard PC,” explained Shuttle global marketing representative, Johnny Tsai,
“With the XPC SD11G5, Shuttle has created a silent PC system that meets the
price and technical simplicity to be a success in the mainstream market.”

To bring silent PC to the mainstream, Shuttle designers followed one well known
rule, KISS (Keep it simple, Stupid) aiming for a silent PC solution that simply
delivers, even to users new to this enthusiast group. Traditionally, customizing
a PC for silence would involve premium-priced after market components and time
consuming research and modifications, but the XPC SD11G5 comes equipped with
many of these optimizations built in. Utilizing a single fan design coupled with
Shuttle’s ICE heat-pipe technology, the system offers efficient cooling of
internal components with little cost in noise. Notebook PC technology has been
harnessed in the form of Intel’s low-heat, high-performance mobile processors,
the Pentium M and Celeron M series, and the whole system is powered by Shuttle’s
noiseless 220W external Silent X power supply. Testing of the XPC SD11G5
configured with standard PC components reveals that the system produces less
than 24dB of noise. This compares to the 32dB levels produced by typical XPCs,
and greater than 40dB of standard PC systems. However, impressive as this seems,
Shuttle acoustic technician, Jason Chen expects that when using carefully
selected components, experienced silent PC enthusiasts will be able to reach
levels even lower.

Despite the lighthearted mention in the design goal there is nothing stupid
about striving for a silent PC. As daily life becomes more and more saturated
with barrages from advertisers, higher levels of traffic noise, and increasing
amounts of stress and pressure, investing in a workspace that offers an escape
from distractions and a place to relax can have a positive benefit on health and
productivity.

The distinctive white XPC SD11G5 barebone will be available soon in all regions.
