Cooling-related FAQs

All our XPC products have an integrated heatpipe cooling with one to four copper pipes, transporting heat to cooling fins. Some XPC models don't even need an active fan to keep the PC quiet and stable. Others use one or two fans with smart RPM-speed control for low noise operation and maximum stability.

Here's an overview of all different types of cooling used by the Shuttle product family:

CategoryProduct PhotoCooling SolutionDetails
XPC cube e.g. SH170R6This is the original so-called “ICE” (Integrated Cooling Engine) heatpipe cooling solution with 80-92mm fan
XPC slim (3 litre) e.g. XH110VHeatpipe cooling solution with active dual 60mm fans (2x)
XPC slim (1.35 litre) e.g. DH170Heatpipe cooling solution with active dual 60mm fans (2x)
XPC slim (1.3 litre) e.g. DS67These models work with large surface passive cooling technology
XPC slim (1.15 litre) e.g. XS35V4These models work with large surface passive cooling technology
XPC nano (0.6 litre) e.g. NC01UA space-saving combination of heatpipe and active cooling fan
XPC all-in-one e.g. X50V5These models work with passive cooling technology
  1. Please place some heatsink compound on the middle of the CPU. Just a small drop will be enough, as shown in the picture below.
  2. Now proceed to install the heatpipe. Pressing the heatsink on the CPU will help spread the heatsink compound evenly.
  3. If you remove the heatsink, the heatsink compound should look like as in the picture below. Perfectly spreaded across CPU surface and no spilling.

This is an overview about the individual dimensions (in mm) of each fan in our Mini PC product line.
