The Mercury Helios Single-Slot PCIe Thunderbolt 2 Expansion Chassis from OWC / Other World Computing provides you with the flexibility to upgrade the capabilities of most workstations by offering an extra x16 PCIe 2.0 slot. It can be used to connect a single PCI card for video capturing, video editing, media transcoding, audio processing, fast networking, and more to a computer via the Thunderbolt interface.

The Helios supports one half-length (up to 7.75"), full-height, and single-width PCIe card to provide a vast array of expansion options. It also supports a double-width card with a x2, x4, x8, or x16 interface. The expansion chassis offers expansion of computing capabilities of any Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 equipped Mac Pro, iMac, Mac mini, Mac laptop, or PC. This technology provides the flexibility to use a PCIe card with the bandwidth to support their capabilities.

For cooling, a silent, variable speed fan keeps the aluminum inside of the chassis ventilated and running smoothly. Furthermore, it automatically powers on/off with your computer.
