Hey guys!

Can you share advice to desk mount a Mac Mini and the eGPU under a desk?

I have reached out to 4 brands/companies who build enclosures and got only 2 responses. And those 2 weren't helpful. 🙁

For the Mac Mini itself I looked around but only found product with pictures from the previous generation Mac Mini. Or just a velcro thing with which I don't feel comfortable at all!

I was hoping there's some builds out here who have attached an enclose for the eGPU and the Mac Mini below a desk.

Thanks!

Small bump - hope that's OK. Just to prevent this thread from getting buried. Hope someone can help!

@willem, go to the hardware store. Buy some stuff. Then assemble your custom under desk mounting solution.

Do you have a 3D printer?

I could possibly design something for you if you really can't find a commercial product available.

 

Do you already have an eGPU or are you building one?

@joevt, correct answer as ever.

I have under desk mounting but its with the String Shelf system and its a very very small desk suitable for a small London (UK) terrace house alcove, if I had the option I'd have a big desk.
