Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The new Odyssey L-1000 is a mid-tower case with several interesting features, like a digital thermometer, a four-step fan speed controller with two channels, a fan attached to one of the expansion slots, a unique hard disk drive suspension mechanism, and much more. Let’s take an in-depth look at this latest release by 3R System.

The left panel is meshed, coming with air filters for you to install up to two 120 mm fans there.

The front panel of the Odyssey L-1000 can be seen in Figure 3. It has four external 5.25” bays and one external 3.5” bay. The top two bays come with covers that completely hide the optical drives, so you should not remove them when you install your optical drives.

At the bottom part of the front panel we have the highlight of the product: the digital thermometer and the fan speed controller. The thermometer has a probe that can be attached to any point of the computer you want to monitor the temperature. The fan speed controller has two independent channels, controlling the front and the rear fans. You can set the fan to spin at four different speeds: 900 rpm (level 1), 1,050 rpm (level 2), 1,275 rpm (level 3), and 1,500 rpm (level 4). You can also turn off the fan (level 0). There are two seven-digit display available, which show the current speed level (0 through 4) of each fan.
