T3-NodeLite - Akitio Thunder3 PCIe Expansion Chassis

Akitio Logo

  Akitio Thunder3 Node Lite PCIe Expansion box is the perfect choice for connecting a PCIe card to your Thunderbolt port. Has 2 Thunderbolt ports so you can chain other devices.

 Suited for capture cards, eSATA host cards, SAS RAID cards and NIC cards.

   Note: PCIe cards must be Rev 2 or 3 PCIe AND have Thunderbolt aware drivers to be attached through Thunderbolt. We recommend the Lycom 6G 4 port eSATA card to run your port multiplier Burlys.

 Thunder3 NodeLite is compatible with
      - any Mac computer with a Thunderbolt port
      - Works on Thunderbolt2 computer by using a Thunderbolt2 to Thunderbolt3 adapter
      - any PCIe card up to 7.75" long that has Thunderbolt aware drivers


  We recommend this adapter used with the Lycom SATAIII 4 Port eSATA card to attach your Burly port multiplier storage. The Lycom card has four 6Gb eSATA ports and supports up to 4 port multipliers with up to 20 drives. Performance is in the neighborhood of 400 MB/sec per port up to around 1 GB/sec of simultaneous bandwidth. With this card no driver upkeep is required as the card runs on built in system drivers. A fantastic method to attach your Burly port multiplier enclosure to your Thunderbolt Mac. This expansion box also works with Areca Thunderbolt capable RAID cards.


  Personal observations: Beautifully made. Works exactly like it is supposed to. Very easy to install a PCIe card without tools.If you need one PCIe slot on your new Mac, this is just for you. ~Rick
