Inside the Ikonik Ra X10 Liquid Full Tower Case - Continued
At the bottom half, I'll start with the tool-less expansion slots. There are eight in total with the last one being below the motherboard. This is a nice feature, as now a fan controller or light switch doesn't have to take up valuable space within the motherboards slot layout. To the left is not only the water cooling holes, but a look at the inside of the door panel lock, Both the front and rear panel have locks on the Ikonik. Below all of this are the two 80mm fans that exhaust lower case air and aid in cooling the drives if you choose to use this rack in your build.
The front I/O panel wires are routed instantly out of the bay area to maximize usable drive space. You can see all of the fan wiring up top as well as the plumbing for the cooling system is secured and well routed, leaving an overall clean look inside the case.
This is the inside of the 5.25" bays. Notice Ikonic has already set adapters into the bottom most drive bay. Removing a thumbscrew on either side of the drive rack allows the adapter to be removed to allow easier placement of an SSD. Also you get a look at how well the wiring is tucked out of the way of sliding in a DVD burner or Blu-ray drive.
Removing the back panel gives you a much better idea of how the cooling is done. The coolant goes from the pump to the top radiator, which is cooled by the four 80mm fans at the top. It then travels up to the flow meter in to front of the Ra X10 and down to the bottom radiator, cooled by the lower set of four 80mm fans. The coolant then goes up into the block to cool the CPU, and of course, back to the pump/res. combo.
Here we have the SIM module. This is the heart of the cooling system inside the Ra X10 Liquid. Out of the box the SIM module is wired to correctly control all the fans, lights and the speed of the pump. On the left you can see six, dual pin, "T1-T6" labeled plugs. These are for included temperature sensors to plug into the SIM which then allows the Windows application to display vital temperatures along with the fan speeds and alarms. The only thing the SIM requires to function out of the box is a 4-pin Molex power lead connected to the bottom right corner. This is enough to prime the pump on startup.
The wiring from the front I/O panel is relatively short in comparison to most cases, but they are plenty long enough to reach the appropriate headers. From left to right, we start with the case speaker, power LED and power switch wires. Next to those there are the AC' 97 and HD Audio connectors. We then run into the two USB 2.0 connections aside the IEEE 1394 connections. This leaves us with the two e-SATA leads on the left.
We can't forget the workhorse of the cooling system aside from the SIM itself, can we? This is the all copper, 268 pin, water block that Ikonik includes. The base isn't milled to a mirror finish but is very level and true. One last thing to point out here is that the mounting hardware is adaptable to LGA 1366 and AMD as well.
