The PS5 has been out for a long time. While finding one can be difficult, those lucky enough to get one may now be thinking about customizing their PS5 setup for the first time. The new system brings new accessories, including different mounts and ways to protect your PS5, or – most importantly – keep it cool while you’re gaming. Still, finding a good stand can be tricky. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the best PS5 stands you can buy.
keep it flat
NexiGo PS5 Horizontal Stand
One of the biggest questions many PS5 users face is whether to keep it upright or on its side. For those who might want to sit horizontally, the NexiGo’s option is a great alternative to the stand that comes with the PS5. Not only does it keep the PS5 off the ground for better airflow, but it’s also padded to allow the PS5 to rest on it when it’s on a stand.

OIVO PS5 Cooling Rack
The PS5 is a big console, and a very powerful one. These two things can lead to some great gaming performance, but can also lead to overheating if you’re not careful. OIVO’s case is designed to provide a solution by plugging a fan into the back of the PS5’s USB port. The fan then draws air down and out of the case, providing greater airflow to the system. It even comes with a place to store games and charge the DualSense controller.
OIVO PS5 Cooling Stand with Headphone Stand
OIVO has two versions of the cooling stand, the second version has a different design, including a place to put your headphones. The DualSense controller port is still included in this bracket, although the controller is inserted upside down rather than face up like other brackets.
Compatible with PSVR
Benazcap PS5 Stand with Cooling Fan and PS Mobile Controller Base
While Sony continues to develop its next-generation virtual reality gear, PSVR fans among PS5 owners need a place to store their accessories. Benazcap introduces them here. Not only does the stand feature a cooling fan and cooling, but it also comes with a motion base for controllers, headsets, remotes and even a PS Move controller if you want to charge up your PSVR gaming hours.

Stylish and stylish choice
KIWISMART PS5 Cooling Station
KIWISMART PS5 Cooling Station works very similar to other cooling stations available for PS5, but offers a more sleek and stylish design. Unlike larger options, this is a simple, small black stand with just enough room for a PS5 and two DualSense controllers.

Know when to charge
CATZARMOR PS5 Stand with LED Indicators
While nearly every PS5 stand available provides some charging capability for the DualSense controller, CATZARMOR’s offering also features a sporty LED light on the stand to indicate if the controller is fully charged or still needs some battery. Combined with its cooling options and extra USB plug, this could be a great option for those looking for a new PS5 stand.
What will you pick up?
Because the PS5 is relatively new and it’s still hard to find one, the wall-mounted options aren’t the most diverse. Most grandstands you find in the wild right now are a variation of one or two designs, with some unique options interspersed. Our pick, the NexiGo PS5 Horizontal Stand, is the best option. While it doesn’t have the bells and whistles of some of the other stands, it does what it needs to do to keep your PS5 safe and out of harm’s way while staying cool.
But if you’re willing to keep your PS5 upright, there are some options for those looking to pick up a stand that can support other accessories. The OIVO cooling stand allows for storage of multiple games and controllers, as well as two cooling fans below the system for optimal airflow while gaming. Of course, you can also opt for the vibrant CATZARMOR’s PS5 stand, which features an LED light to indicate if your controller is charging.
No matter which wall mount you choose, you’re likely to have good control. With more and more PS5 accessories coming out every day, you’re sure to find the best wall mount for you at some point.
