Fantastic little device which I have used for an external graphics card setup. It does have a few limitations like only being able to supply 25 watts through the PCIe port, but these shortcomings are easy to overcome. Don't be fooled by the "Does NOT support graphics cards" description, it works just fine. I have previously used the Sonnet Echo Express SE II for external graphics cards, but at twice the cost I would recommend this instead. Notice that the Sonnet has two PCIe ports, but for graphics card purposes it gave me a headache getting the whole setup to work. The eGPU community thinks it might be the PCIe multiplexer at work.
To overcome the 25 watt PCIe limit I use a powered PCIe riser together with an external ATX power supply. The beauty here is the original power supply is no longer needed as all the needed power comes from the PCIe riser.
I cannot comment on the fan noise since I have unplugged mine.
A Thunderbolt cable was included!
For more details about using this product in regards to external graphics card setups, I have written a small guide here: https://odd-one-out.serek.eu/thunderbolt-2-egpu-setup-using-akitio-thunder2/
In short, I highly recommend this device for DIY external graphics card setups. I have not found anything that beats this device for performance (in terms of bandwidth) to price ratio.
