Occasionally when samples arrive, they come from channels other than directly from the manufacturer. Such was the case with the Megahalems and is also the case today. While we are going to be featuring the Ikonik Ra 2000 chassis, I would like to thank Charles over at Logisys. Logisys has been a forerunner in the PC community for some time now, offering just about every way to make your PC stand out, whether in images on your favorite forum, or on a table at your next LAN event. PSU's, cases, remote controls, CCFLs, bay devices; you name it, Logisys has an answer. And if they don't, my guess is they are working on it!
Using a moniker like Ikonik on products, the bar is set high in my mind. Icon to me is something that is not only a trendsetter, but one of those things that you can remember back to years later with a smile and say, "I remember that, it was the bomb in its day". I haven't had a ton of personal experience yet with Ikonik, but the most memorable up to now was their Ra X10 Liquid Chassis I had the pleasure of looking at and using personally for a couple of months. Not only was the Ra X10 sleek and sexy, built from aluminum and offered software fan control, but of course it was fully water cooled from the factory. While not the best of the best in choosing the components of the loop, I was very satisfied with the results it offered.
The Ra X10 was quite the expensive full tower with all the accoutrement that is included, and many would pass it by simply based on their wallet not "feeling" the purchase. Never fear, Ikonik comes to the table with a new full tower offering that is a bit more "budget friendly". At first glance the chassis offers sleek looks, a windowed or mesh side panel choice and hopefully similar build quality as the last Ikonik chassis I looked at. Under the surface Ikonik offers a few more tricks to benefit buyers of the Ra 2000 Black.
Let's get a little deeper into the box and see just what Ikonik brings to the table in the newest of their chassis releases.
