Standing Desk CPU Holder suggestions
« on: January 27, 2020, 03:50:40 pm »

HI All,

I've just bought a standing desk frame and I'm want to purchase a desktop CPU bracket to hang my computer from the underside.

Has anyone any experience with these or any suggestions on reliable and quality options.

I'll be hanging a Fractal R6 Case from it. 

Thanks!

The desk model would help.  Depending on the bracket cost, some times it's easier to just get longer cords.

What do you mean by this Joe?

I've purchased this frame if that's what our asking about.

Yep, knowing which frame (in your case) or desk kit helps.  Due to the width, you may need to look at something like https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=34540 Others I've seen have been real sticklers as to the case width compatibility.

Loaded Fractal design can be heavy with the soundproofing etc. My loaded R4 weighs over 17 lb (no hard drives) so the above rated at 22 lb should be OK. However, If you use the fans at the top of the case, you would not be able to secure it tightly vertically, so it might swing. Aslo doesn't meet that minimum width (which seems very wide).

I would be conservative and plan for 20lb capacity.

I just put my computer on the floor. There was enough cable slack.

That's good. It is a pretty fairly case to be hanging.
