OWC Mercury Helios Bundle for Mac Mini

The deal at OWC found here https://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/HELFXRX580/  looks like a rather good deal for my recently purchased Mac Mini

However I see very little on the enclosure on this forum, is this a concern?

also would the included GPU be part of AMD’s recent promotion including free games?
this will cost me $800 Australian dollars as opposed to below rates for others

  • Sonnet eGFX 650w $700, 550w is $580
  • razer core X $485 (would of gone this option since this is local and cheaper but sound complaints have me concerned)
  • ASUS XG station pro $660
  • helios FX alone is $495

thank you

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Thank you for sharing this bundle deal. The OWC Helios FX is identical to the Sonnet Breakaway Box 550. They are priced similar at right around US$300. In the US, AMD graphics card prices have come down significantly.
