Lian Li's Odyssey X chassis can morph between two different forms

Lian Li's Odyssey X chassis can morph between two different forms

Lian Li Odyssey X

Lian Li's new Odyssey X is a bold and unconventional chassis that marks the company's second collaboration in recent times with the overclocker Der8auer. The Odyssey X, actually pronounced Odyssey 10, can look like a standard tower chassis with a tempered glass side panel and black aluminum body. But there's also another side to the case. 

The Odyssey X has two modes. Performance mode is the one on the right in the picture above, and there's nothing particularly extraordinary about it. It's designed for maximum airflow, and the two glass doors are horizontal. Furthermore, Lian Li wanted to create more space for thick radiators in this mode, one at the front and one at the side. 

However, Dynamic mode lets you flip the case over to stand on its rear, so it is now taller and has its glass doors positioned vertically. Dynamic mode is meant to provide a more aggressive and eye-catching aesthetic, and the doors can even be left open – and the case will still look good – if you want to show off your hardware.

Another interesting announcement from Lian Li is the Concept UNI fan design. It's a creative take on how to simplify your installation and cable management process. While you'd generally have to connect a regular fan to either a motherboard header or splitter cable, the Concept UNI fans can be daisy-chained together and interlocked with one another. Not only do you not need to bother with hooking every single fan up to a board or fan controller header, you also only require four screws to install a chain of Concept UNI fans, two at the first fan and two at the last.

Every Concept UNI fan comes with a hot-plug cable wire and a male/female quick connecting point so you can either mount them individually or as a single block. They'll all function as a single unit however, which means you can't control them independently. 

Separately, Lian Li also unveiled the LANCOOL II and TU150 chassis, the PC-O11 Dynamic XL ROG Certified, a larger version of the original O11 Dynamic, the DK-04 F and DK-05 F electric desks, and the Galahad 240 AIO CPU cooler.
