All I can say about the new NZXT Manta Mini ITX Chassis is that NZXT has once again taken a diamond in the rough and turned it into one of the best Mini ITX chassis that's sure to turn a lot of heads whenever the Manta is shown.
Back on August 4th and again on August 25th 2015, ProClockers had the privilege of reviewing the new NZXT Noctis 450 as well as the S340 Razer Edition chassis, and to before I knew it both NZXT cases had changed the way I felt about mid towers chassis. Both were able to spaciously hold the same amount of hardware as my Corsair 780T full tower without any heat issues or installation problems
Lets fast forward to March 2016 and the newly released NZXT Manta Mini ITX chassis and see what NZXT has in store for us. I know I have some questions, and I'm pretty sure most of the people reading this review have a fair amount of questions also, so let's get started on Pro Clockers review of the NZXT Manta chassis and see if all of our questions can be answered. I would like to thank NZXT for sending their new Manta Mini ITX chassis to ProClockers for review.
NZXT's Take on the Manta
The first case built with an innovative new manufacturing process that allows for the creation of curved steel panels. Each panel is created with structurally reinforced steel to ensure uncompromising build quality.
Curved side panels offer 2X the cable management space of traditional ITX designs. The spacious interior allows for the installation of the largest power supplies on the market with even more space available for cable routing.
Supports dual Kraken X61 280mm radiators to conquer heating challenges from even the toughest of builds. With industry leading support for a total of three radiators, Manta offers the best water cooling performance possible for mini-ITX.
Ensures the beauty of your build never goes unseen with the largest windowed panel in ITX history. Manta is also available with a closed side panel for users that prefer a stealth approach to their build.
An expansive interior combined with easy to remove filters and side panels make for an effortless build experience. With the absence of typical obstructions such as 5.25" bays and HDD cages, installing components and routing cables in the Manta is seamless.
