    Hot Shuttle

    hi all,
    i bought me an sn95g5 and assembled etc
    i started using and it got soooo friggin hot so i downloaded a bios from shuttle
    its not so hot nemore but on the right hand side where the psu is its really hot but on the other side its cold, is it possible that the psu is overheating?
    any good ideas?
    thanks, khizman

    hmm its possible. The way i found you can tell if a shuttle is getting too hot is when you start getting problems on the ethernet port - like, slow transfer or random disconnects etc.

    Thats my experience from the last 5 shuttles ive had after doing some tsting.

    That sounds like its the DVD drive thats having problems, and to be honest most DVD or CD players will make CD/DVD's warm, spinning them at the speed they do now.

    What temperatures we actually talking, you got MBM5 running at all to monitor temperatures?

    I've found that the PSU's in both Shuttle's I've had has definitely been the warmest part to the touch. Currently I've a SN85G4, with a mesh sided cover and blowhole and the PSU still feels like I could roast my Sunday lunch on it :S The wee beastie doesn't crash tho, so I'm happy. Don't sweat it if the system seems ok with it. I've found Shuttle's to be very different from a regular system for both heat generation and power consumption.

    Hot shuttle XPC ST62K

    My Zen is now malfunctioning and turning itself off because it gets so hot. It works again when it has cooled down, but not for long. The fan works intermittently and I have no answers to what the problem might be. Can anyone suggest something to this non-technie.

    That's not hot (for a shuttle). If it goes over 65-70 then I'd be worried otherwise don't worry about it!

    Hi,
    Sorry to but in on your thread. Just built my first Shutttle (5G5) and have the same concerns regarding heat. Case feels quite cool when system is idle but tends to get hot when running games ie Farcry and Half Life 2. The fan is set to smart fan with a 30 degree temperature tag (????). Should the fan speed increase as the system gets hotter as I can't hear any audiable difference as I don't want to cook it????

    Update to my previous comment - the shuttle ST62K Zen switches itself off when the CPU temperature rises to 130, My question is, could this be anything other than a malfunctioning fan - the fan is not now coming on at all.

    Look unless your hitting like 70c and it's crashing then the temps are fine.

    and kjp if the fan is not on at all then it's rma time m8.
