Shuttle K45 WHS Review


Shuttle is the company that really started the trend of fashionable and quiet small form factor PC’s years ago, and they have since quieted down quite a bit. They still are churning out boxes ready for the DIY-er crowd, and this K45 looks like a solid option if you are looking for a small WHS box and only need a few drives.



The K45 case accommodates 2 x 3.5” hard disks, which makes it perfect for a low-end Windows Home Server. You do have to remove the power supply in order to install the hard disks, but this doesn’t cause any real problems as it is only held in place by 3 easily removable screws. Once the disks are in, put the power supply back, connect up all the power, fan and hard disk connections and you are done.
