NZXT Manta mini-ITX Detailed Features
Removing the front panel reveals a large dust filter for the front intake. This dust filter can be easily removed and has enough room to support a radiator with fans.
Once we remove the dust filter, we can see there are two 120mm pre-installed front intake fans included with the Manta mini-ITX. Of course, two 140mm fans or a 280mm radiator can also be installed here.
The interior of the Manta mini-ITX is one of the most spacious I have ever seen for an ITX chassis. There is a CPU cutout on the motherboard tray and two SSD mounts towards the front of the case. The power supply chamber is completely closed off except for a few ventilation holes to give the graphics card access to fresh air. Something I did notice about the Manta mini-ITX was the lack of rubber grommets for the cable management holes.
Behind the motherboard tray, we find a lot of tie down points for cable management, a fan hub, and enough space in the power supply chamber to mount a 3.5″ HDD and a large power supply unit. A 3.5″ HDD can also be mounted closer towards the top left of the case, but it requires the removal of the SSD brackets to do so.
Taking off the top cover, we can see there is plenty of space here to mount two 120mm fans or two 140mm fans. There is support for a 240mm a 280mm radiator as well. I would have liked to see a design similar to the front panel as a dust filter is not present at the top of the Manta mini-ITX.
Here we can take a closer look at the ventilation holes for the graphics card. There is also a small cable cutout just right of the graphics card ventilation holes for a power cable to the graphics card. At the front of the case, there is about five centimeters of space from the fans to the power supply chamber for a radiator.
