Herewith a list is to give users a clear direction of what types of high-end graphic cards are supported by using Shuttle upgradable power supplies and different CPUs with SH55J2.
Please refer to below configuration and support list. If you look for the Shuttle upgradable power supplies, please contact CinLor Tech at firstname.lastname@example.org for your requirements.
Compatible PSU with Graphics Cards for SH55J2
October 23, 2010
You can upgrade the standard power supply in the SG41J1 (250w), SH55J2 (300w) and the SH67H3 (300W) models to the 500 watt PC63J PSU.
This gives the option of putting higher end graphics cards in these models without worry of power shortage.
You can use the Shuttle PSU Calculator to determine if a 500W PSU is needed.
You can purchase the PC63J PSU for $99.99 at Cinlor Tech’s PC Shop.

Now that the Shuttle “J” series has been out for awhile, I’d like to clear up some confusion regarding the SH55J2 and SX58J3 models.
Question: Can you put a 6-core processor in the SH55J2?
Answer: A 6-core processor will not work in that model, only the SX58J3 model.
The i7 Extreme 6-core has to run on a pc with the X58 chipset.
Now with that being said, as I said in an earlier post, the new Shuttle “J” series models now have the ability to change the motherboard to any Brand or Model of M-ITX you’d like. So technically, you could put an X58 motherboard in a SH55J2 model case but, you would want to also upgrade the power supply to accommodate the additional power requirements. The i7 970 (6-core) has a max TDP of 130 watts.
The stock motherboard in the SH55J2 uses the H55 chipset with a max TDP of 95 watts.
In this builders opinion, having the ability to use any M-ITX motherboard, is one of the best changes Shuttle has made.
If I can answer any other questions you might have regarding the Shuttle “J” series models, please post them here in the comments section.

Considering this SFF will take a Intel Core i7, i5 or i3 processor (Socket LGA1156) and up to 16 GB of DDR3 memory. It also has the I.C.E. cooling system to keep all the components running cool and stable.

The “J3” Small Form Factor is the most powerful on the market. The J3 supports the Intel Core i7 processors, including the 6 core Extreme Edition. It also supports the fastest Graphics card on the market today, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480. It also has 2 – PCI-E X 16 slots for dual graphics cards that will run Crossfire X or SLI , so you’re not limited to a specific brand.
It will take up to 16GB of DDR3 memory running at 1066/1333/1600(OC)mhz.
This little box will take up to 2 hard drives with RAID and an optical drive.
Now, if you’re wondering about the cooling system for all these top of the line components being in a small foot print box, DON’T! Shuttle has a special designed cooling system called I.C.E. Cooling Technology, a Vapor Chamber base and Heat Pipes providing high efficiency processor and chassis cooling.
The power supply that comes in this unit is a Certified 80 Plus 500W, you ask if a 500w PS will be enough to handle all this? We assure you it is, we’ve had no power problems with our builds. We’ve tested many different scenarios.
Be sure and check the support list for tested components at Shuttle’s website.
You can pick up the J3 Barebones on our website for $469.99. If you’re not into building your own computer, shoot us an email and we’ll custom build one for you with what ever components you like.
