When doing a new build it's always important to consider getting a good case. But what is a good case? Is it one loaded with features, or maybe something just cheap so you can get that really high end GFX card you want. You might consider those to be two ends of the spectrum when it comes to cases. Many times features are sacrificed when a budget case is considered. Today we have an Ikonik case to review. What's Ikonik you might ask? Ikonik was featured as a new brand at Computex in 2008. Until now I hadn't heard of this brand so I had to look it up on Google. Today in particular though, I am reviewing the Zaria A10 silver with SIM. SIM in this case stands for System Intelligent Management. What SIM does is just that, system management. Without giving away too much this early in the review SIM can monitor temperatures and even control fan speed. So does the Zaria A10 have it all? Let's have a look.
The front of the box shows that this unit comes with SIM. First impression is given as a case with a polished look. Next we have a side of the box. This one shows us that we have the silver case. On the back of the box we have descriptions of features the case has. Lastly, on the final side we have product specifications printed in several languages.
Upon opening the box we are greeted with the bottom of the case and its feet as well as some packing foam. Once out however we also find bubble wrap around the case in addition to being wrapped in plastic. Under the bubble wrap however we find an acrylic sheet which is interchangeable with the mesh side panel window. The sheet comes wrapped in plastic and also has foam on both ends of it.
So far this seems like a pretty feature packed case. Let's read on and see some more.
