Quick Overview

Thunderbolt to PCIe expansion chassis for Mac Mini



Manufacturer Part Number: ROBEN-3TM

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 and 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 540-watt power supply, auxiliary power, and features Magmas exclusive quiet cooling control. The ROBEN-3TM is precision engineered as the ideal sidekick to the Apple Mac mini.

We understand that your projects require an exceptional, high-performance workstation, so the ROBEN-3TM was designed for mission critical capabilities previously reserved for our defense and aerospace customers. Failure is not an option, so we integrated the best of Magmas advanced technologies and sourced the highest quality components for this superlative chassis.

Its time to create. Simply add a host of specialty PCIe cards to an Apple Mac mini and unleash your creative genius. ROBEN-3TMs patented performance optimizing backplane flawlessly integrates PCIe expansion, storage, and Thunderbolt connectivity, ensuring that each system device operates at maximum performance and speed.

With the option of embedding an Apple Mac mini, the new iLok feature and 3-slot capacity, the ROBEN-3TM is the gold standard for high-end Thunderbolt-based computing.
