Featuring a curved steel exterior panels, which promises plenty of room for cable management when compared to similar PC cases on the market, the new NZXT Manta mini-ITX PC case has a rather interesting design and is also much bigger than your usual mini-ITX PC case with dimensions set at 245x426x450mm.
According to the specification page, the NZXT Manta PC case supports up to 160mm tall CPU coolers, up to 363mm long graphics cards and 363mm long PSUs. It also lacks a 5.25-inch drive bay, which is not a big surprise considering the recent trend on the market, and comes with support for three two 3.5-inch and three 2.5-inch drives.
The cooling side of things is quite impressive for a mini-ITX PC case as it has room for two 140/120mm at the front, two 140/120mm at the top and single 120mm at the rear. When it comes to liquid cooling, the NZXT Manta can house up to 280mm radiator at the top, 280mm one at the front and a 120mm radiator at the back. While it has a decent cooling capacity, it comes bundled with two 120mm at the front and single 120mm fan at the rear.
The rest of the unique features including a LED lighting for the rear I/O panel and the NZXT logo on the PSU shroud as well as an integrated PWM fan hub, which is a nice addition since mini-ITX motherboards do not come with plenty of fan headers.
According to what we can gather from NZXT's product page, the Manta mini-ITX PC case will be available in Matte Black, Matte Black with Red accents and Matte White with Black accents color options. The Matte Black version will be available with and without the side window panel while the two other version will only be available with windowed side panel.
We still do not have a precise date for every version but the windowed versions should be priced at US $139.99 and should be available later in February.
