A 3 slot PCI to XIO expansion module sometimes found in Octanes and Onyx2 or Origin 2000 machines.

Note that the location of the screws and the location of the XIO connector is different on the Octane compared with the Onyx2/Origin 2000. The Octane, the PCI cards are left to right and the O2K/Onyx2 its up and down.

See Octane subsection on case and expandabiity.
