Thunderbolt 2-to-PCI expansion chassis.
The ROBEN-3TM takes expansion computing to an exciting new dimension. Featuring three (3) full-length, full-height PCIe slots, the ROBEN-3TM offers you the unique ability to embed an Apple Mac mini (Mid 2011 & Late 2012 models**) directly into the system chassis. This incredible feature gives you the most dynamic 3-slot Thunderbolt expansion capacity known to mankind.
You have a lot invested in your creative assets, so the ROBEN-3TM allows you to keep your valuable plug-ins secure with an optional front panel USB iLok.
The rack-mountable aluminum chassis was designed with a 250-watt power supply, auxiliary power, and features Magma's exclusive quiet cooling control. The ROBEN-3TM is precision engineered as the ideal sidekick to the Apple Mac mini.
