A case isn't always just about features but hey, who doesn't want features? To some, a case may simply be just that, a case. Nothing more than a source of protection from the outside world for the fragile components that rest inside it. To others however, a case may need to do more than just simply protect your hardware. A truly good case will take these two extremes and meet somewhere in the middle. How well it finds that medium can depend on factors such as manufacturer and price. Ikonik is quite a newcomer in the market of cases (only having just surfaced recently) and already they are producing great products from the get-go and the Ikonik Zaria was definitely no disappointment. Knowing how good the Zaria was, should the same be expected for what is on review today? Today for review I have the Ikonik Optimus 1200. For what it is, it definitely boasts some good features in terms of expandability. Should you be looking to add some large top panel fans, the Optimus sure won't disappoint since it sports two 140mm top fan holes. But what else does this case have in store? You'll have to read on!
Starting off with what might be the front of the box (hard to tell front from rear), we have a black and white picture of the case as well as a mention of eight specific features. On the next side of the box, we have the specifications. Here on the proported back of the box, we have a blown out diagram of the case also highlighting specifics. Lastly, we have the final side of the box which shows different optional panels that can be included with the case. With this model, we would appeare to have a metal side panel with two 120mm side fan holes.
Next we have the opened box with the packaging containing the case now visible. The case came fully protected in bubble wrap as well as a plastic bag. Additionally, it was sandwiched between two pieces of styrofoam.
So far it looks like we have a decent case. But how many included options are there really in this package? Read on.
