I'm not allowed to do pictures (yet) but it looks pretty smart!
The Asus XG station Pro has the same Alu grey finish as the Mac mini, they look pretty sweet together.

Installation steps (what did you do to get it all going?)
Nothing really.. it is plug and play and works like a charm!

 

 

 

Benchmarks 

Let's say it works.. it's stable and it does the Bruce FCP-x test in 16 seconds.. 

 

Comments 

Really great and silent setup! 
Silence was my main concern, and the Blackmagic route was to much money for something non-exchangeable.
And this combo is 'dead' silent when doing normal stuff. All fans are idle when the GPU is not hard at work.

When it has to perform, you hear it, but nothing that would get on your nerves.

super setup!

Will it work with Vega 64? I have ordered it today, so I will let you know.

The 330W power adapter is not enough to handle the RX Vega 64. It may work through the setup process but likely crash during heavy load.
