Rear IO Features:

I wanted to share some of the neat features on the back portion of the IKONiK build. I built a partial shroud that comes out of the back and helps to organize all the cables coming out the back of the IO and PCIE. This helps convay the modern, clean and sleek aesthetics that I'm going for. There is a vandal switch mounted on the acrylic top plate of the shroud. This vandal switch allows you to turn on hidden white leds that will illuminate the rear IO and PCIE slots. This really makes plugging stuff in a lot easier as my room is typically dark.




Rear Layered Acrylic PSU Surround:


I decided to go forward with make a layered psu surround out of acrylic. I used black and white cast acrylic so that it matched the other panel work throughout the build. I know most people won't ever see it on the back but the little details like this are important to me.






Trimming U Channel for ModMyMods Custom Badge:

This was done rather quickly but I decided to trim the U channel that goes behind the honeycomb and acrylic ModMyMods badge I made. Small stuff like this gives it a more polished look. Now the U channel is etched around the honeycomb leaving almost no gap. After I had that finished I installed the ModMyMods badge.

Final Assembly Progress:

Today I started refitting the many custom parts and pieces of IKONiK. The vast majority of complex builds like this will require minor tweaking to get everything just right. So far almost everything has come together really well. Almost all the cables going to the motherboard have been tested to make sure they not only fit but, look as clean as possible. It will look like there isn't much going on wiring wise but I can assure that there is a ton of wiring in this build. The wiring always slows down reassembly because each one has to be properly routed and tucked away. I also swapped the OCOOL badge for a white one that lights up blue. It gives it a much better look when its off.






More Fittings Needed:

Now that I have the IKONiK build very close to completion I've realized I'll need a few fittings and adaptors. The space is so tight in parts of the build that the only way to do some connections is by using adaptors. Luckily ModMyMods & Alphacool have a hearty selection to choose from which allows me to get in those tight spots. The last few parts are enroute and should be here this week.

 
Plumming Several Dump Valves:

This is in no way required for the typical user. My case mods tend to travel a lot to shows and LAN events so I wanted an easier way to drain the entire loop. In specific locations I added dumps valves with caps on them. The 1st one is located on the reservoir. All I have to do is take off the cap; hook up some tubing and drain the top half of the loop. The main drain ports are attached to the out and in on the pump. This allows me to drain the other portion of the loop through either side. Arranging them in this way saves a ton of time down the road.

Love what you did with the shroud


Thank you very much. The rear shroud was really tricky to make but, I was able to learn some new skills while building it. I got the opportunity to use a massive die/stamp machine too which was awesome. I really enjoyed building the shroud even though it took a while to get how I wanted it. I managed to mount it inside the recess of the rear part of the case so that it looked like the case was originally made that way. You'll be able to see it better when I post the final pics.

Installing Hardline & Water-cooling:

Almost all of the hardline has been run and just requires a bit of minor tweaking. Getting the runs perfect was a but more work than I originally anticipated but, was well worth it. The polished chrome tubing does a great job of bringing it all together. I have a few fittings left to install and most of them arrived today.






Final Parts Arrive From ModMyMods:

Now that most of the parts have arrived from ModMyMods I can finish the reassembly and detail the the build before leak testing. The main reason I needed specific adaptors was due to the way I chose to do the runs for the watercooling. I wanted to keep the majority of the tubing going horizontal while have a mirrored vertical run. I'm exremely happy with the way this build is looking. It's even better than I had originally imagine and I'm glad I went with the polished chrome hardline. It's a perfect fit for the IKONiK build. It convays the classy, clean and modern look that I wanted.

I am still trying to deturmine of I'll have enough time to leak test and take pics before I leave for Computex. I may save it till after so that I am not rushed. This build has taken a ton of time to complete and I'd hate to ruin it because I was in a hurry. Below I started mocking up the 2 vertical runs.



I also got these super awesome ModMyMods case badges:
