 Overclocking Warning
Please note there is a certain risk involved with overclocking, including adjusting the settings 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.
 Supports additional displays in combination with a discrete graphics card
The integrated graphics function already supports three independent displays via its digital video outputs. This PC can even support more displays in combination with a discrete PCI-Express graphics card. This function is based on the Switchable Graphics feature introduced with the 2nd Generation of Intel® Core™ processors. To enable this, please enter the BIOS Setup Utility by pressing the "Delete" key after powering on the PC, then go to the "Advanced" tab and change the "Initiate Graphics Adapter" setting to "Switchable".
 4K Ultra-HD resolution
A 4K-display with Ultra-HD resolution (3840 x 2160) should be connected via DisplayPort, as only this port supports a higher refresh rate of 60Hz. The video playback performance depends on the video format, bitrate and the processor used. Daily office applications usually won't require the system to run under full load, however for smooth 4K (2160p) video playback requirements are different. An Intel Core i3 processor or higher is required here.
 Right Front USB port with Fast-Charge feature
Fast charge Apple iPhone/iPad devices with up to 2A under Windows (not under Linux).
 How to convert DisplayPort to HDMI/DVI
The DisplayPort outputs can be converted to HDMI or DVI by an additional, passive adapter cable. For example:
DELOCK 82590: 1m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to HDMI-A (male, 19p)
DELOCK 82435: 5m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to DVI-D (male, 24p)
The integrated graphics automatically detects the connected display and puts out the appropriate electric signal - either DisplayPort (without an adapter) or HDMI/DVI (with an adapter).
However, a monitor with a DisplayPort connector cannot be connected to the HDMI port with a simple, passive adapter.
 Three independent displays simultaneously
The Shuttle XPC cube Barebone SH170R6 Plus supports a maximum of two displays with a DVI or HDMI input. A third digital display, if required, must be connected directly to the DisplayPort output (without an adapter).
 Installation of Windows 7
Intel® 100 chipset series has removed their support for the Enhanced Host Controller Interface (EHCI) which is the driver software for the USB 2.0 ports. The new chipset only supports the updated Extensible Host Controller Interface (xHCI for USB 3.0) which is not supported by the original Windows 7 installation disk. This means, that peripheral devices connected by USB (like keyboard, mouse and external optical drive) do not work during the Windows 7 Installation. As a solution please add the required USB 3.0 drivers to the Windows 7 installation files - this procedure is explained in the Shuttle FAQ section at global.shuttle.com.
 Kaby Lake processor support
The 7th generation Intel Core processors "Kaby Lake" are supported from BIOS version SH170000.202 which is available since 2017-02-15. Download website: http://global.shuttle.com/support/download
Note: If a Kaby Lake processor is used, this XPC will only support Windows 10 and Linux operating systems. Windows 7 and 8.1 will no longer be supported.
