With a loaded SB65G2, 1 GB of memory, 120GB hard drive, CD burner, and an ATI Radeon 9800 PRO all drawing power, consider these excellent results to be the worst overclocking that you are likely to see on this machine.A card drawing less current or a slower CPU will make fewer demands on the system and allow an even higher overclock.The limitation is clearly the power supply, as we would expect, but the fact we could overclock to 228 on this loaded SFF box is a testament to the solid Shuttle design.At 3.42GHZ, we ran the machine overnight, stress-tested, ran benchmarks, and still could not get the system to fail or the automatic setup of the fan to kick into high speed.For more information visit our AMI BIOS ID information page.At this moment we have 20 AMI BIOS IDs listed for Shuttle (Holco).This translates into an astounding 3.4 GHz speed in this little system with a 200-watt power supply.
The AFUWIN program is no longer needed for the Flash, Shuttle has made the updates an executeable file (.exe).
The last system you would ever think about overclocking would be a Small Form Factor system like the Shuttle.
You buy this type of system for the small size and quiet unobtrusive operation.
The below BIOSes are patched / modded to fix the 32GB or 64GB bug that is present in older Award BIOS Based BIOSes.
The 32GB bug in Award BIOS prevents many users from using HDD larger than 32GB as the BIOS hangs at detection.
