NZXT Manta mini-ITX Overview
The NZXT Manta mini-ITX case is currently available online for $139.99 (Amazon | Newegg). Inside of the accessory box, we find plenty of mounting screws for the motherboard, storage drives, and the power supply unit. A few zip ties along with a brochure are also included.
The exterior of the Manta mini-ITX looks astounding with its curved and simple design. There is nothing much to see at the front of the case except for a very faint NZXT branding logo towards the bottom of the case; trust me, it’s there.
On the main side panel, there is a large window to show off basically everything inside of the case. NZXT claims this is the largest side panel window for a mini-ITX case at the time of this review. It is non-tinted and both side panels include their own captive thumbscrews.
The rear of the Manta mini-ITX maintains a standard layout with a 120mm exhaust fan pre-installed. Two expansion slots are included and the power supply unit mounts directly at the bottom. The power supply unit is protected from dust by a removable dust filter at the bottom of the case.
At the top of the case, we can see the front panel ports along with the power LED and power button. The top maintains a very simple look just like the rest of the exterior.
The Manta mini-ITX stands on four rubberized feet that are tall enough to allow air to pass under the case and to the power supply unit. Here we can see the removable dust filter for the power supply unit.
Now that we have seen a quick look, let’s go ahead to show more about the features the Manta mini-ITX has to offer.
