Kick start is awesome! lol.
In no ofence to the reviewer the "Cable mess almost unavoidable" is not the right thing to say ... If you put a bit of time you can hide them away quite easily (Houdini made an Elephant to disappear in the middle of 1000 people )And by the way who uses IDE HDD and SATA optical drives ???
I think the reviewer means that there are no routes/cable ties/tunnels to feed the cables through, thus if you want to manage your cables you have to do it yourself with your own ties.
For a general user, this will be too much of a pain to bother with.
Yeah I suppose you are right
It could still be worded better. I see this in a lot of case reviews here and other places.
Why not just say that it's difficult and the case isn't really designed to aid in cable management? Just my $0.02
Edit: Anyways, I only glanced over the pictures, but the general design of this case doesn't seem like anything too special imo. Main selling point I guess is supposed to be the SIM. Two nitpicks that stood out right away to me were the pointlessness of the side-fans, and the placement of the w/c holes; I may have missed some, but it looked like there were just two right by the expansion slots. That's nice if you're cooling just your gpu/s, but I think it's more common to cool the cpu or both, if not more.
I really like the looks and the kickstart thing, but i can't find any Ikonik cases in germany:shadedshu.
Rofl. I have to correct my statement:
There is one case to be bought in europe, it´s the one from this review:
Nice review and the case is nice looking but companies continuing to mount HDDs like that show how short sited their engineers/designers are.
And mounting the small exhaust fans where a lot of people have tons of wiring coming out of their PSs shows another part where their designers missed the boat.
