Where to buy depends upon where you live.

I live in the USA, so I can give one example of the VESA mounting adapter from a website in the USA:

The USB 2.0 ports are just one piece removed from a PCI slot USB adapter that looks like this:



You can get this part from Aliexpress:

Newegg (US users) has a bundle of the DeskMini 110W (includes WiFi card) + the VESA mount + the USB 2.0 adapter (all official Asrock product).  They also sell the VESA mount and the USB 2.0 adapter separately.

I wasn't sure I'd want VESA mount since with the heat sink and hard drive(s) it might get a little heavy, so I just ordered the USB 2.0 adapter.

But I believe like the previous poster indicated, really any USB 2.0 expansion bracket should work, just unscrew the ports from the metal bracket and it should fit fine in your 110.

Thanks for reminding me, the USB port part is this one:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=56-989-002&utm_source=Bluecore&utm_medium=BehEmail&utm_campaign=Post_Purchase&cm_mmc=EMCPP-122016-_-PP-_-Bluecore-_-Content&obem=2vFfF2J_eC7ibIrrM27Y_rkUMbViXmqAATpyAXLnvZE%3D

The VESA mount is here: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856989001

I use the VESA mount now, which is made of plastic and adds very little weight to the DeskMini.

Think about it like this: The weight of the DeskMini plus the VESA adapter is less than even a small, 18" monitor. If you mounted the monitor on a wall or a monitor stand/arm with a VESA connection, the VESA connection on the monitor must be able to support the monitor without breaking. Otherwise, it would be worthless.

So connecting the DeskMini 110 to a monitor with the VESA adapter won't be a problem at all.

Thanks! Now I know how it look like.. I have tried to mount a white one without metal bracket. But his plastic case bends RAM plate and chassis won't close fully (and cable too long for inner space). Unfortunately I do not live in the US and do not know where to buy it.

Does anyone know what is the length of the original USB ports cable? I can not find the original in my country or in any shop that ships to my country. I have the option to buy https://www.aliexpress.com/item/30cm-50cm-Dual-USB-2-0-A-Type-Female-to-Motherboard-9-Pin-Header-Cable-with/32807542068.html" rel="nofollow - this cable , but I am not sure if I should get the 30cm or the 50cm version.

I doubt you will need the 50cm version. Where would you put or hide 1/2 meter of cable inside the DeskMini's case?

The only thing to consider is how you want to locate the cable within the DeskMini's case. It is not easy to route a long cable under the mother board tray, and then back above it again. This cable will be above the mother board, and you won't need much cable to connect the USB ports to the case.

Just open your DeskMini case, and imagine where everything will be located. I would be very surprised if you need a 50cm cable.

The problem is my Deskmini won't arrive for two weeks, and I wanted to order the cable now, so that they would arrive at approximately the same time. I guess I will order the 30cm version, it should be more than enough. Considering what you wrote, I think even 15-20cm should be enough, but I can't find any cable shorter than 30cm.
Thank you!
