Shuttle Barebone DS61 Review

Others/All-in-one PC by stefan @ 2013-03-04

The DS61 is a nice little barebone from Shuttle, which supports both Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge CPUs and besides the CPU, it only needs some RAM (SO-DIMM) and a storage drive (HDD/SSD) in order to operate. The barebone is also shipped with a VESA mount for added value and the preinstalled CPU cooler is enhanced for better cooling, sporting two heatpipes and is ventilated by a dual-fan system.
