    You need support from the chipset for thunderbolt to work and none of the cMP chipset has support for it.

    I'm willing to sell my :apple: branded PCIe Thunderbolt expansion card for just 500 bucks. :D

    I think I can start profiting on this.

    In all honesty, if you have a cMP, there should be little to no need for thunderbolt technology since you have readily available PCIe expansion slots. USB3/eSata are good external drive options if you need speed.

    Link your :apple: branded PCIe Thunderbolt expansion card if such a thing exist, unless you are talking about Thunderbolt expansion box which aren't the same thing. To my knowledge and with a quick google search I don't find any info on an Apple branded TB card to give TB port to the cMP... Of course we're April 1st, so I'm not believing anything unless I see it myself today.
