[1] Overclocking Warning
Please note there is a certain risk involved with overclocking, including adjusting the setting in the BIOS or using third-party overclocking tools. Overclocking may affect your system stability or even cause damage of the components and devices of your system. It is done at your own risk and expense. Shuttle cannot be held responsible for possible damage caused by overclocking.
[2] The integrated video outputs (HDMI and DVI-I) cannot be used, if the processor does not integrate a graphics function, e.g. Intel Core i5-2380P, Core i5-2450P and Core i5-2550K. Not all compatible Intel Prozessors with integrated graphics support the HDMI 1.4a standard. Please check the specification of the used processor.
[3] The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is required when booting from hard disks larger than 2.2 TB under Windows 64 bit operating systems such as Windows 7, Windows Vista SP1 and Windows Server 2008/2003 SP1.
[4] Optional Wireless LAN module: this XPC supports the optional WLAN module PW01. The Shuttle XPC accessory PW01 consists of a half-size Mini-PCIe card with IEEE 802.11n functionality and an external antenna with appropriate antenna cable.
[5] mini-SATA (mSATA)
not to be confused with the "micro SATA" connector, is a newer industry standard which converts the electrical SATA interface (1.5 or 3.0 Gbit/s) to the pysical "Mini PCI Express" mini card form factor. Applications include mobile devices that require a smaller solid-state drive, and Intel e.g. Z68/Z77 mainboards that utilize Intel's Smart Response Technology (SRT). 
[6] Intel Smart Response Technology (SRT, formerly "SSD caching")
The Shuttle XPC Barebone SZ77R5 supports the Intel Smart Response Technology which allows a SATA solid-state drive (SSD up to 60GB) to function as cache for a conventional hard disk drive (HDD). This is allowing users to experience system performance similar to SSD-only systems.
[7] SZ77R5 supports 4 displays in combination with a discrete graphics card
With Shuttle SZ77R5 the user can support 4 displays in combination with a discrete PCI-Express graphics card, when the initial display is connected to the integrated graphics. For this, you have to enter the BIOS Setup Utility by pressing the "Delete" key after power on the PC. In the "Advanced" BIOS menu please set "Initiate Graphic Adapter" to "Onboard VGA". The Windows Device Manager will show the integrated graphics and the external discrete graphics card as well. Note, that the graphics performance is limited to the integrated graphics engine. This function is based on the Switchable Graphics feature of the 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® HD Graphics 3000/2000.
[8] Right Front USB port with Quick Charge feature
Quick charge with up to 2A only for Apple iPhone/iPad unter Windows XP and Windows 7 (not under Linux)
