Trumpeting support for the latest Core i7 processors and graphics cards (even in SLI and overclocked configurations), Shuttle’s announcement of its latest Prima-series XPC raised eyebrows among our skeptical review staff. After all, packing all of those features into a pint-sized case would require a level of planning and skill rarely seen in the industry.
But nobody said such a feat would be impossible, either. Today we’re out to test Shuttle’s claims. How much hardware does the XPC SX58H7 really support? How well does it really overclock? Can it actually compete with full-sized performance systems?
