Ikonik’s market debut is definitely a success. You can just browse Web forums to see that users have noticed and got interested in this brand. I guess the main reason is that Ikonik’s PSUs and system cases are widely available in shops, not just on paper.

Things are somewhat more complicated when it comes to the technical aspect, especially where it meets marketing. I mean the company’s price policy.

The Gaia PSUs are good for a midrange computer, up to a gaming machine with a top-end single-chip graphics card. They have good electrical parameters and high quality of manufacture. They are quiet and offer a good selection of cables. Unfortunately, they are as expensive as opponents of a higher class, e.g. with dedicated voltage regulation or with detachable cables.

The Vulcan series PSUs with wattage ratings up to 850W are somewhat more expensive than the competition, too. However, their longer-than-average cables are going to be appreciated by owners of large system cases. The other parameters of these PSUs will surely satisfy everyone.

And finally, the highest-wattage models of the Vulcan series are based on the newest DSR platform and seem to have not yet been polished off. The two samples I tested have various unpleasant drawbacks. Considering their high price and the fact that so much power is but rarely needed for today’s computers, I would not recommend you to buy them.
