Ikonik Zaria A20 Case With SIM
First Impressions and Closer Look
Software and Testing The Ikonik

Software:

The software that came bundled with the case included a software program for controlling fan speeds and viewing temperatures of the case. One flaw in this program however is that it retrieves the fan control from the motherboard, and most of the time, motherboards don’t have more than 2 fan controllers so that would be mostly useless. Also most cases these days come with power adapters to just plug directly into the PSU bypassing the motherboard.

 

 

Other than that the software worked pretty well, there was a setting so that when a certain component got too hot the program would increase the fan speed to user specified directions.

 

Performance:

 Temps - m998

 Temps - Zaria
Temps - Zaria

 

I was quite impressed with the performance of this case. According to my research here it provides quite a jump from even the NZXT Whisper case.

 

Conclusion:

The case is a pretty good design, although it is not without its flaws, namely the big power button on the very bottom of the front of the case. The case does provide a tool-less design as well as rubber grommets to reduce HDD and PSU vibrations and this is one redeeming feature. All-in-all this is a good case; as a case designed to enclose a number of computer components it does its job well.

 

Pros:
  • Good Cooling
  • Rubber cover I/O panel
  • Tool-less design
  • Classy design

 

Cons:

  • Power button on front
  • Some fans covered up by PSU

I'd like to thank Thermalmighty for sending over their Ikonik Zaria A20 case for us to review.  It has some unique features and design elements that set it apart, although I feel it could use a few changes.
