IKONiK is my interpretation of a sleek, modern and high tech PC. It features hardware from EVGA, OCZ & Be Quiet modded into one cohesive design. I put hundreds of hours into crafting even the smallest details on this case mod. Everything from the case to the Cmos battery has been modded in one way or another. The goal was to blend these mods into the build so that they all worked together instead of standing out alone. Some of the details will never be seen but, those details are just as important as the ones you do see. The plan for IKONiK was to break away from traditional aesthetics while tipping my hat to a generation of forward thinkers. I wanted to create something that goes beyond “standard” ideas and instead pursue this project inspired by layout, location, and function. Frank Lloyd Wright’s mentor, Louis Sullivan famously stated that, “Form follows function”. This idea is expressed by Modernism's tendency to have the function of a project dictate much of the design ideas. I attempted to look through the eyes of this perspective throughout the build.

Thank you very much. That's exactly what I was going for. It took a ton of work to get all the bits to work together to give it a clean aesthetic look. I appreciate the comments.
