Shell Thunder is the only NVMe SSD enclosure on the market with active cooling and that is designed specifically for Thunderbolt 3. Don't accept substitutes from people selling USB-C enclosures that technically fit in a Thunderbolt 3 port but don't bring TB3 speeds. Take flight with Shell Thunder!
Why buy our Shell Thunder SSD Enclosure?
Lightning Speed - Shell Thunder works with any standard NVMe SSD, testing at 2,700 MB/s Read and 1,300 MB/s Write. You can download, edit, and upload whole movies in a few seconds. *Tested with WD Black SSD 1TB (2018) and MacBook Pro 15 (2018).
Active Cooling - Shell Thunder is the only high-performance Thunderbolt 3 enclosure engineered for active cooling. We stress-tested this design with an Intel SSD by writing 3 terabytes in 60 minutes. The whisper-quiet 4000 PM fan kept Shell Thunder as cool as the palms of our hands.
Ideal for m.2 NME SSDs - Intel Certified: macOS and Windows compatible, powered by Intel Thunderbolt 3 technology. Shell Thunder is designed for 2280 and 2260 m.2 NVME and ACHI SSDs. Note: Thunder is NOT compatible with m.2 SATA SSDs, Apple OEM SSDs, or Fledging Feather SSDs.

Built for Thunderbolt 3 with all the tools you need - The market is full of USB-C enclosures that work in Thunderbolt 3 ports. Almost none are built for Thunderbolt 3 ports and Thunderbolt 3 speeds. Shell Thunder is. We ship it with a screwdriver, a thermal cooling pad, a Thunderbolt 3 cable, and installation instructions.

The enclosure works like a charm. The reason I bought it was for the active cooling. It keeps my 2TB nvme ssd cool. Quality is top notch!
Beautifully made and runs perfectly with a Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1T SSD with no thoughput slowdown due to overheating when doing a heavy write load to the drive such as a 200GB back file. Windows 10 defaults to not using the write cache for external devices now so you need to enable the write cache use otherwise its slower than a normal external USB3 HDD at writing defeating the whole purpose of an SSD and Thunderbolt 3 enclosure which is for me faster speed.
