Thelio Major with AMD Threadripper

Premium Performance

Power your workflow with the latest and greatest components. See what 64 Cores can do for you with AMD’s Threadripper 3990X on Thelio Major.


Intelligently Designed

Thelio is designed to maximize the performance of every high-end component while remaining incredibly compact. Oversized fans quietly pull in cool air. Heat pipes rapidly draw heat from the CPU. Ducts contain the heated air and direct it out of the system. And a custom chassis controller coordinates and optimizes the flow.

Easily Expandable

Tinker to your heart’s desire. Thelio systems are created for you to customize with ease. Slip in drives, add memory, upgrade graphics cards. Add your own personal touch and make your computer feel like it’s really, truly yours.

Easily Expandable

Beautifully Crafted

Every design element was crafted with intention. Etched-in artwork and rounded corners create an inviting and professional aesthetic that’s open, friendly, and warm. Real walnut or birch wood complement Thelio’s deep matte black finish, with the option of adding a hand applied blue, black, or red stain. Care was taken to ensure you’ll feel proud to have this desktop sitting on your desk, not underneath.

Pop!_OS overview layers

Perfect with Pop!_OS

Pop!_OS by System76 and Thelio together form the perfect platform to create and discover. Thelio is optimized for maximum performance. Pop!_OS provides tools and development platforms that are always up-to-date and just a single click or command away.

Thelio IO board

Optimized by Thelio Io

Thelio Io is a System76 designed chassis controller and hard drive backplane that moves proprietary functionality from the mainboard to the open source Thelio Io daughterboard.

Moving chassis and thermal control to Thelio Io enables far more granular performance optimization. Motherboard data, fan speed, and GPU and OS data are used to coordinate optimal airflow.

Thelio Massive also includes an open source System76 designed SAS backplane for high performance 2.5” PCIe storage.

Open hardware licensed to give you rights

Thelio, Thelio Major, Thelio Mega, Thelio Massive, and Thelio Io are OSHWA certified open source hardware.

Licensed under GPL v3 and CC-BY-SA, everyone can learn from what we've created, adapt it, improve it, and make derivative works inspired by the Thelio design. We hope Thelio can be a spark for open source hardware, just as GNU and Linux were the sparks that forever changed the way software was developed and shared nearly three decades ago. Thelio and Thelio Io design files are hosted on GitHub.
