Sonnet has designed a new 2018 RackMac Mini for adequate airflow for two 6-core i7 2018 Mac Minis which also fits in the original Mac Mini. 

However, the 2018 Mac Mini has larger openings than the previous Mac Mini for the increased air needed to cool the 6-core 2018 Mac mini models, and the original RackMac mini was not designed to accommodate this increased airflow requirement. You may use 2018 Mac mini(s) with the original RackMac mini under the following conditions:

1) Using only one 2018 Mac mini in a RackMac mini

2) Or using two 2018 Mac minis, but only if they are both 4-core i3 models.

Sonnet does not recommend using two 6-core 2018 Mac Minis in the original RackMac Mini. If you have two 2018 Mac Minis, and they are 6-core i5 or i7 models, there may not be enough airflow for all CPU load conditions. 

For example, at 20c ambient temperature the original RackMac Mini, two 6-core i7 Mac Minis running at full CPU load will cause the Mac Mini to run its fans at maximum rpm. Under the same conditions at higher ambient temperatures, Sonnet believe that 6-core CPUs will thermal throttle.

Sonnet has designed a new 2018 RackMac Mini for adequate airflow for two 6-core i7 2018 Mac minis. The 2018 RackMac Mini will be compatible with Mac mini models from Mid 2010 through 2018. 

  • Compatibility: Apple Mac mini (Mid 2011-2018)
  • Dimensions: 19 x 8.5 x 1.7 in. (48.3 x 21.6 x 4.4 cm)
  • Weight: 6.9 lb / 3 kg
