Shuttle last week at CeBIT demonstrated its CarPC system for automotive integration. The upcoming Shuttle CarPC measures in at 11” (D) x 9.1” (W) x 2.8” (H) and designed to withstand the thermals, vibrations and power requirements in an automotive environment.

Shuttle internal testing reveals the CarPC is capable of operating under temperatures of 95 degrees Fahrenheit stably. Under full load, the Shuttle CarPC draws 65-watts of power. The internal hard drive features an anti-vibration design that will absorb up to 2Gs of shock.

Specifications of the Shuttle CarPC are nearly identical to the previously released X200 small form factor system. An Intel Core Duo T2400 paired with the 945GM chipset delivers processing and graphics power. Integrated high-definition audio with one line-output and one S/PDIF are the only audio output sources available on the Shuttle CarPC – separate audio amplifiers are required to output sound to car speakers.

Shuttle does not integrate an optical drive, GPS or wireless Internet in the CarPC; however, customers may add the devices via USB. The system uses a conventional keyboard and mouse as well as a touch-screen display for input.

Hmmm all was good!

There seems to be a bug in the AW9D-Max board that will disable the second NIC if you disable the 2nd PCIe in the BIOS.

Sadly when you upgrade the bios from the shipped version (11 or 12) to the new one it removes the option to re-enable the 2nd PCIe :(

So i did some twiddling and reflashed the bios to the version 12, this brought the option to enable the 2nd PCIe again!

But since then i seem to have lost all the performance i had on wednesday :( i of course cleared my CMOS after each BIOS flash and then reapplied my overclock.

I'm a little bit flaky still on what will cause problems while overclocking this chip.

What volts should i be using on the CPU? I set it to 1.4 but when reading your review ont his board you state that you used 1.3. Could this be whats causing me a problem??

Every combo of parts is different. While kemp used 1.3, you use 1.4 somone else may need 1.6.

Oh i know that, im just not getting why all of a sudden my performance has dropped by over 50%

I'm struggling to hit over 100fps in Source now :/ guess i'll format and reinstall again as something may have messed up during that.

Did you remember to disable all thermal throttling and whatnot in the bios second time around?

Well thats the thing alot of the options in the bios change with the bios update.

I think im going to just clear the CMOS when i get home tonight, reinstall windows then look at resetting all the bios settings again.

Bloody gutted as i had it running amazingly and now its just gone pap :/

Ive managed to get things working well again and to push the CPU to 3.2ghz (couldnt boot at 3.6 :( )

I want to know more about the MCH voltage though, what does that effect? Is it PCIe and the North/South Bridge??

Mr. Smith
It does the NB and the pci-e - I had mine set to 2.0v on the high clocks, as did Frag...

The graphics card regulates its own voltage so don't worry about frying it.

Have a play with it and see if increasing this gives you stability at higher clocks, it did for me and Frag

Right, i've currently got it left at 1.5v i shall try pushing it up a bit could be the reason why my card does not seem to be performing well.

7950GX2 not getting enough power must be bad :/
