Xigmatek has just announced the all new Odin high-end gaming chassis which takes some pointers from the always-loved sports car. The Odin is basically designed for silent operation however it can crank up to highest levels when needed. The case has two 140mm fan slots at the top. By default, the slots are covered and fans are turned off. However, putting the chassis into performance mode lifts up the cover from fan slots and the fans automatically turn on. This is something like the spoiler system of McLaren P1 or Lexus LFA. This is the first time we’ve seen something like this on a chassis.
Apart from that, the Xigmatek Odin is a usual chassis with lots of space and options. In terms of size, its a tad bit smaller than the monstrous Xigmatek Elysium and exactly like its bigger brother, the Odin is made up of high-grade SECC steel and ABS plastic. There’s room inside for up to E-ATX sized motherboards with 330mm long graphics cards. It has three 5.25-inch drive bays along with seven 3.5-inch bays which can also be used for 2.5-inch drives.
It has plenty of slots of cooling fans as well. There’s a 140mm one at front which can also be used for two 120mm fans, two 140mm ones at top, single 120/140mm at bottom and side panel along with one 120mm slot on rear which comes pre-installed with Xigmatek XOF fan.
Xigmatek Odin has large number of cable management holes in the motherboard tray along with 10mm of space of space behind it for tucking extra wires. It also comes with two water cooling holes at the rear.
The front I/O panel has two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports along with the usual audio jacks. Its hidden under a panel and can be revealed upon a slight push.
Xigmatek Odin will hit all the major retailers worldwide soon however the pricing is not announced as yet.
