Extruded aluminum case provides sleek, industrial protection
No fan means no noise or dust
Unlike computers, the MiSTer doesn't require active cooling. It's an industrial device with 100C max temperature rating.
The case is the heatsink, dissipating internal heat to the exterior.
Analog IO kits output analog video + HDMI simultaneously and can only use a single SDRAM module
Digital IO kits do HDMI or analog video (HDMI2VGA adapter required) and come with dual SDRAM modules.
No currently released cores use dual SDRAM, but future cores might.
All kits can be upgraded to the other IO board by simply replacing the rear panel.
Everything you need, pre-assembled and tested, in one tidy package!
- Silicon port covers and plugs
- Aluminum passively cooled case
- 128MB SDRAM (1x for Analog IO and 2x for Digital IO)
- IO Board
- USB Hub, bracket, and splitter + switch
- Splitter + switch is for analog IO only
- Digital IO will come with a small DC connector to route power from DE10-nano to USB hub
- US 110V 5V 2A Power supply
- Upgraded power supply available here!
- 8GB micro SD card with all open source files
- Higher capacity micro SD cards also available here!
Can't decide between standard (analog) or digital?
In terms of cooling, here's what I've measured:

Ok I’ll be honest, I was aware of the Mister but didn’t know what it was. It wasn’t until analogue dropped the ball with the turbo duo preorders by increasing the price. I then saw a tweet from Porkchopexpress on Twitter claiming that the mister can perfectly run Turbografx and Turbografx CD games perfectly that I decided to research it and end up buying one for myself because I thought it would make a great addition to my retro gaming. Oh man, this thing is everything everyone said it was and then some. You have well over 50+ cores and endless supply of gaming. I haven’t even mentioned the flawless arcade games on the Mister. Everything works amazingly. You can even use original controllers to make it feel as authentic as possible. I hate to say it but it looks like I may retire all my consoles from the ps1 and below, as there is no more need for them. The Mister does it all and then some. If you were ever hesitant or have even a small curiosity, I say go for it. You will not regret it. It was so easy to learn how to use and now it is in my everyday rotation of gaming. I love it and I can’t see myself without one. I decided to get the Rampage Red which looks so much better in person. The build quality is beautiful and very sturdy. It feels like a quality product and have had zero issues with it. I will definitely be buying a second mister just to have one in the game room and one in the living room. Thank you again Porkchopexpress for tweeting about the Turbografx when you did or I would’ve never considered getting the Mister.
I had no idea how much I was going to love the MiSTer, especially in this preconfigured bundle. I wondered if I should build one myself, but I figured after adding up all the upgrades, I'd rather just get a MiSTeraddons box that's ready to go with everything you need. I'm constantly amazed by what this little box can do; it looks great on a 4K TV and it looks incredible on an old school CRT. I love the fit and finish of this box too. My only complaint (and it's minor) is that the buttons "spin around" and make noise when you move the box, however they still have a nice satisfying click to them. I absolutely love this preconfigured MisterAddons MiSTer box.
I debated between the digital or the analogue bundle for awhile, but went with the analogue bundle because it makes it much easier to hook up to a CRT with the VGA output. The extra SDRAM is not a necessity.
And one final plus is that the MiSTer community is amazing. They have wikis and guides everywhere on how to get started or how to fix more complex issues. The DEVs are passionate and constantly update the cores. They're even working on an N64 core, can't wait for that.
This little MiSTer box took me by surprise and I continue to use it almost every day. One of the best purchases I've ever made.
I had been skeptical over buying a Mister since I already had so many other platforms that could play the games that run on it and a pretty good scan converter to improve the image on modern TVs. Let me just tell you that this simplifies the whole setup to a degree that I'm not sure how I lived without it. I'm incredibly impressed with the progress on CPS2, PS1 and Saturn cores as well. The red case is really classy and much smaller than I anticipated.
For a long time I was under the impression that the MiSTer FPGA was complicated to use but I couldn't have been more wrong. I picked up the pre-configured bundle as well as the SNAX and some adapters and wow it was incredibly easy to use and the cores I have tried out have been incredibly responsive and fun. Highly recommend picking up a pre-configured bundle from MiSTer addons it's worth the money and that rampage red case is absolutely gorgeous!
optimal communication, fast shipping, good availability. Can be highly recommended to everyone at any time. Thank you very much for your service!
