What is an ODD plate?

Recommended Posts

I recently posted the following on Thermaltake's Facebook Page:

I have a Thermaltake Suppressor F51 case.
It shipped with a 200mm front fan, mounted on the bottom half of the front.
I am looking to get an additional front fan.
The manual states the front of the case supports 3x 120mm, 2x 140mm or 1x 200mm.
If I choose to keep the 200mm in there, can I add a second front fan?
If not, I guess I'll remove the 200mm fan and get 2x 140mm fans.

Their reply:

If you want to mount a 200mm fan in the front, you will only be allowed to install either a 120mm or 140mm fan. However, you will need to install a ODD plate in the front as well as remove a 5.25" drive bay.

I have an ODD plate on the way.
What will it allow me to do?
I presume mount a 120mm/140mm fan above the included 200mm fan? (as long as the 5.25" drive bays are removed, of course).


If so, does that mean that, without an ODD fan, the case only supports a single fan on the front and that's all? If so, how basic!
