New Mini-ITX enclosure has VESA display mount

No, this isn’t yet another nettop that can bolt onto the back of a monitor. Rather, as Fudzilla reports, Gigabyte has whipped up a Mini-ITX chassis with a display mount sprouting off of it, sort of like a display stand on steroids.

Dubbed the MIB T3140, the chassis can take a Mini-ITX motherboard, a slim optical drive, and one 3.5″ hard drive. Gigabyte includes a 65W power supply, USB 2.0 and audio ports up front, one 60-mm “silent” fan, and some thumb screws for mounting the display. The company touts anti-vibration mounting pads for the hard drive and cooling vents to keep the internals from getting too toasty, as well.

The monitor mount at the top supports both 10- x 10-cm and 7.5- x 7.5-cm VESA mount standards. VESA-compliant monitors from 17″ to 23″ should be good go to. With anything bigger, you can remove the display mount and just use the MIB T3140 as a plain PC enclosure.

This contraption doesn’t look that expensive, either. Fudzilla found it listed in Europe for just over €70, which would hint at pricing well below $100 pricing across the Atlantic. We’re not finding any listings at Amazon, Newegg, or our price search engine, though.

    I already have a chassis. I just want that vesa arm. Sold separately somewhere?

      I don’t think you’d want to use that mount on its own. It looks like it would be very unstable and tip over sideways easily. There are plenty of monitor stans available that would be more stable.

        The base would be anchored… I have another enclosure I would want to attach that to.

    As a design, I’d move the chassis way up to where the VESA mount is. But I’d have a slot-load DVD down on the base. To avoid the keyboard (assuming 1 is present) I’d angle the slot up slightly. There would also be a USB cluster and card reader present on the base. Other stuff like power, ethernet, etc. would be up on the chassis still. Maybe even put an i-pod dock on the base of this thing. Oh, and something along a low-power Athlon or CULV.

    Who designed that? It’s so ugly. Literally looks like they just glued a stand on top of it.

      Seriously. No elegance at all.

    It doesnt look strong enough to support 24″++ monitor though.. is there any locking mechanism at all?… I dont think i want to just rely on friction to have it stand…

    Like the look tho.. if it is to use as htpc… i would surely just put it somewhere else, like how people usually place their dvd player at the tv cabinet….

    Edit: Ooo, it only support up till 23″…

    I don’t get it.

    What monitor doesn’t come with a stand that you could just set on top of the box? Besides one that’s packaged as an HDTV (and therefore twice the price)?

      Some regular stands might cover up the vents…dunno though.

        Sounds reasonable, a lot of monitor have big round or square base… IMHO, attaching a htpc at the vesa mount behind the monitor seems like a better idea..

      Well this has a huge tilt and swivel compared to a regular monitor stand.

      Basically it’s a VESA mount. Monitor stands are not VESA mounts.

    I realise these things generally need low-power parts just to deal with the heat, but does an entire system really use less than 65 watts?

    If only they’d sell these things with 90w or so power bricks…and if only there were current AMD mini-itx boards at all.

    It looks like there’s finally a Biostar mini-itx 785G that’s widely available, and at a heft price premium, just in time for the 800 series to launch lol.

    Blah, slim optical drive. I know the enclosure makers use them to make it just *that much* smaller but the prices and options are terrible. Seriously, add 3/4″ and use standard size…maybe depth is more the issue.

    Now Gigabyte, where is that mITX motherboard that was rumored a while ago??
