[ad#review1011-top]Recently I reviewed the Ikonik Ra X10 Liquid watercooled aluminum full tower. Even without the cooling system it is an excellent case, definitely upper-end quality. The case alone runs about $170, a good value for an aluminum full. I was impressed with its quality, fit, and finish, and gave it excellent marks.
Ikonik Technology, a spin-off from one of the world’s largest hardware manufacturers, builds a full line of PC cases. Today I will be looking at another of Ikonik’s cases, a steel/aluminum mid tower, the Zaria A10. The Zaria shares some features with the Ra X10 that I liked. Actually, this case will be a change for me, the last few cases I looked at were full towers, moving back to a mid should be interesting. How will the Zaria compare to its liquid cooled big brother? Read on to see!
