NZXT Manta Q&A And Live Build

philip

Jan. 27, 2016

The stream is over - thanks everyone for joining us!

Join us Thursday at 2pm CST for a live Q&A and build with NZXT! We'll be discussing and building with their new Manta mini-ITX case.

We'll be taking questions during the stream, so please hop in and join the chat.

(Note: some of the build parts were ones we had on hand - i.e. you don't really need a 1000W PSU for this build.)

I relay like this case though its a giant case for mitx board.

No doubt. If you put together a Mini ITX rig with this monstrosity it can double as a boat anchor. Kind of looks like a Mercury outboard anyhow.

And one dude in the video comments about wanting to drop it (full of components) to see how it holds up. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? Hopefully that benchmark won't catch on.

I will be building my Mini ITX rig with a case that won't be giving me a hernia. The only thing this case has going for it is the fan header.

Im not a mini ITX fan but thats one Nice looking case. But not worth the price.

and then my comment gets deleted by staff when i just voiced my opinion on how this case is not worth the price. wow. $140 case is still not worth it.

Maybe this will finally be the ITX case I need. Since I'm probably going to miss about an hour, can I post my questions here? Or will it be significantly longer than an hour?

  • 46 months ago
  • 1 point

It'll definitely run longer than an hour, but how much so I don't know offhand. The first part will be an overview and Q&A, and then we'll transition to the build. If I had to guess, we'll probably start the build about 30 minutes in. We'll archive the video to Youtube so you can always catch it later too. But if you want to leave questions here, feel free and I'll make sure they are relayed to manirelli for the stream. (I can't guarantee we'll be able to answer everything due to time constraints, but I'll make sure they all get seen.)

Should we just post questions here, or would you prefer a private message? I can't wait for this!

Feel free to post questions here or in the youtube chat if you are able to join it live.

I missed it, but if possible can you ask if the windows are tinted on any colors?

But I personally would not use a mini atx case

You guys mentioned that each side panel weighs 4-5 pounds. How much does the entire case weigh? Is it portable?

can this case fit a full size graphics card like that of a GTX 980ti or 980ti MAtrix?

Without a problem.

This is one very pretty case and I like it modular properties, the softened lines really make it endearing and very contemporary... keep up the good work guys! love it.

  • 46 months ago

I love the case...one suggestion would be for the Fury X Rad......it could have been mounted on the lower front if you had removed the fan that was currently there and placed it on the outside under the front dust filter. This is actually a dual purpose move as it now makes the config a push/pull or you can just make it a push.

When will it be in Eastern Time?

  • 45 months ago

As much as I love this case, I myself just can't justify buying it for a mini ITX build considering how large and expensive it is, even if it is the greatest thing since pre-sliced bread. Still love dat look doe.

  • 45 months ago

Great looking case though it is quite big for being a mini-itx.

I would love to build a new PC with this case, but I am to poor right now to build anything nice. It took me 2 years to get the i7-4790k and duel 980s build I have now by buying a few parts at a time. :(

Hmm. That's a pretty interesting looking case, Philip!

Can you put the radiator for the H105 where the fans are (the place above the frame)?

  • 44 months ago

That is one nice case!

That sounds really expensive for a Fury X build. Wouldn't it be more sensible to use something like this?

I'm trying to find out if a RTX 2080/ti will fit in this case. Looking to upgrade from my GTX 1080 eventually and I'm unsure if the RTX 2080/ti will fit. Thanks in advance!

I understand how you perceived it. If you want to criticize build choices, that's fine. But don't come here and insult someone's intelligence.

  • 46 months ago

I wasn't necessarily criticizing the NZXT representative. As I've said, he seems like a nice guy, but I was just sharing my opinion without any intention to hurt anyone's feeling.

  • 46 months ago

You were insulting his intelligence. Whether it's staff, a company representative, or another user here, that's no ok here. Cool?

And we get down voted for common sense. Lol. The case is way to big for it being a itx case, not all that great and sure not worth more than $80. Even the corsair 380t is a better case than this and $20 cheaper while being super portable.

We had the sound cranked up pretty good actually. But we'll iterate on it and make it a bit louder next time.

Sweet looking case. Never seen one of those before, is that a relatively new case by NZXT?
