# Cooling-related FAQs

## Which kind of cooling is being used?

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:**

Category | Product Photo | Cooling Solution | Details |
---|---|---|---|

XPC cube e.g. SH170R6 | This is the original so-called “ICE” (Integrated Cooling Engine) heatpipe cooling solution with 80-92mm fan |
||

XPC slim (3 litre) e.g. XH110V | Heatpipe cooling solution with active dual 60mm fans (2x) | ||

XPC slim (1.35 litre) e.g. DH170 | Heatpipe cooling solution with active dual 60mm fans (2x) | ||

XPC slim (1.3 litre) e.g. DS67 | These models work with large surface passive cooling technology | ||

XPC slim (1.15 litre) e.g. XS35V4 | These models work with large surface passive cooling technology | ||

XPC nano (0.6 litre) e.g. NC01U | A space-saving combination of heatpipe and active cooling fan | ||

XPC all-in-one e.g. X50V5 | These models work with passive cooling technology |

## How much heatsink compound is needed?

- Please place some heatsink compound on the middle of the CPU. Just a small drop will be enough, as shown in the picture below.

- Now proceed to install the heatpipe. Pressing the heatsink on the CPU will help spread the heatsink compound evenly.

- If you remove the heatsink, the heatsink compound should look like as in the picture below. Perfectly spreaded across CPU surface and no spilling.
