External PCIe Expansion KIT - $200 USD???

I’ve run out of PCIe slots on my 2007 MacPro 2x2.66 and I’ve found this,
External PCIe Expansion KIT - do you reckon it would work?


I’ve emailed them and it’s only $200 USD which is a tenth of the price of a Magma case

External PCIe Expansion
PCIe x4 to four PCIe x1 Expansion Backplane Kit

I have never seen that before, looks like a lot of self assembly.
Just ordered one of these though…

Apparently works really well with UAD-2

Ooooh! Moving in the right direction! :smiley:

I see no reason why this does not work.


Hello Neil,
Please keep us posted how this works.

I need a PCIe to PCI one of these. I have some UAD-1 PCI cards I’d like to use again, but I have all PCIe slots now.

It fits into any MicroATX PC case. Just bolt it in the case where a motherboard would go and connect to the power supply. About 10 minutes work.

That would do for four UAD2 Quads!

We have come a long way since the Magma extortion.

But it’s only in Taiwan, and no resellers yet.
