 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.
 The memory is directly connected to the processor and you can use DDR3-1333 and DDR3-1600 memory modules. Almost all compatible processors support both clock rates. However, Celeron and some Pentium processors are limited to 1333 MHz memory clock rate, but you can still use DDR3-1600 memory modules in this case.
 The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI)
is required when booting from hard disks larger than 2.2 TB.
 Optional Wireless LAN module
This XPC supports the optional Shuttle XPC Accessory WLN-C which consists of a half-size Mini-PCIe card with IEEE 802.11n functionality up to 300 Mbit/s data transfer rate and and two external antennas with appropriate antenna cables.
 mini-SATA (mSATA)
Do not confuse with "micro SATA". mSATA is a newer industry standard which converts the electrical SATA interface to the pysical "Mini PCI Express" mini card form factor. Applications include mobile devices that require a smaller solid state drive and mainboards that use Intel's Smart Response Technology (SRT).
 Intel Smart Response Technology (SRT, formerly "SSD caching")
The Shuttle XPC Barebone SH97R6 supports the Intel Smart Response Technology which allows a SATA solid state drive (SSD) to work as a cache for a conventional hard disk drive (HDD). This allows users to experience system performance similar to SSD-only systems. The maximum cache size is 64 GB.
 SH97R6 supports additional displays in combination with a discrete graphics card
The integrated graphics function already supports three independent displays via its digital video outputs. The SH97R6 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, bit rate 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 recommended here, since the performance of the integrated graphics engine of a Celeron or Pentium processor might not suffice.
 Right Front USB port with Quick Charge feature
Quick charge Apple iPhone/iPad devices with up to 2A under Windows XP,Windows 7 and 8 (not under Linux).
 How to convert DisplayPort into 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 DS87 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).
