Works well with a shuttle PC!,
This review is from: OCZ OCZ600MXSP-UK ModXStream Pro 600W ATX Power Supply (Accessory)
I have this sitting on top of the case of a shuttle pc and because it is outside the case I can never really here the fan and never gets that hot, it is very silent. The ability to choose what power leads you need for the drives/cards you have is also very useful meaning you don't need to tidy any unused cabling. The cabling provided was long enough to feed in through the back of the casing.
The efficiency of this power supply also swayed me to purchasing this one. To get a shuttle sized PSU with the same efficiency and at a 100W less it would of cost me double. With no power supply inside my case it is also running slightly cooler. If the lengthy MTBF is true then I'll be definitely using it when I come to upgrade. If you plan to put a single graphics card then getting a 600W PSU is a good compromise. 500W with high efficiency would also be cutting it close to alot of cards power requirements.
Cheapy power supplies are a definite thing of the past for me because you will only be spending the same amount of money on numerous replacements years down the line.

Really useful review I have a shuttle and need to do this as well as my graphics card needs more power and air space Shuttles are great but the airflow is appalling when you put todays cards in. I'm just hoping its safe, I wonder if you have to earth it to the shuttle box, does anyone know?

That's a good point. Consider this. The Shuttle is working off low voltage, the only mains is inside the PSU.
