      Is a Thunderbolt cable included?

      The Thunderbolt cable is sold separately.

      Do I need any special Firmware, Software, or Driver?

      No firmware, software or driver is required from Magma, but you may need an updated driver for your PCIe card.

      What types of PCIe cards can be used with the ExpressBox 1T?

      Maximum PCIe card length for ExpressBox 1T is 7.75" long. Check the Thunderbolt PCIe Card Compatibility for a list of cards that have compatible drivers. If your PCIe card is not on this list, contact the card manufacturer to ask if they have a Thunderbolt 2 Compatible driver.

      Can the Magma Thunderbolt 2 Interface add-in card be used in a Mac Tower?

      No, it will not work as a add-in PCIe card in a Mac Tower.

      Do older Thunderbolt devices on a Thunderbolt 2 daisy chain affect performance?

      Yes. If you have a mix of generations on a Thunderbolt 2 daisy chain, make sure that the Thunderbolt devices sit after the Thunderbolt 2 devices on the chain. Anything placed after a first generation Thunderbolt device will operate at Thunderbolt speeds.
