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.
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,
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.
The Beginning of Time
We've taken every opportunity to infuse Thelio with elegant and
meaningful details. From the subtle mountainscape to the solar system
at the time of the Unix Epoch, Thelio embodies the character of
our company and community.
Perfect with Pop!_OS

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.
Designed and Manufactured in Colorado
US-sourced wood and aluminum are formed, finished, etched, and built by
artisans in our Denver, Colorado factory. Premium components from around
the world are then assembled to your final specifications. And to offset
environmental impact, every Thelio sold plants a tree with the
National Forest Foundation.
We back Thelio with a 30-day money back guarantee, lifetime technical
support, and rapid software updates.
