[NZXT] New Manta ITX Case - Page 8  

post #71 of 144
This is small in comparison to the Thermaltake x1, yet that case didn't get so many blows for its size.

Where's the M-ATX version of this?

Soon, probably a full tower sized matx.

It's seriously not as big as everyone is making it out to be. I agree it's on the large side of SFF, but it still falls in the category. Link to my Instagram photo comparing it to Phanteks' Enthoo Evolv ATX and ITX for my review. It's barely bigger than the Evolv ITX and quite a bit smaller than the mid tower ATX.

I think it looks neat, even though small cases aren't really my thing. An updated Phantom 820 definitely would grab my attention ^_^

Actually it doesn't, but neither do Evolv ITX, 250D, Nano S, etc.

SFF are cases up to 20L. Technically you can call anything you like SFF, but the SFF club has decided on a limit of 20L, which I think is resonable. There are ITX and mATX cases out there that can do a lot with 20L.

Also - word of warning - having an AMD card wtih a non-reference cooler and no direct intakes blowing at it kinda sucks.

With the Phanteks Evolve I briefly tried, my AMD card had serious temp (and therefore noise) issues. Switching to a 240 with dual 120mm intakes directly below dropped it by like 10dB. They claim to have tested this case with hot GPUs, but there's a difference between "didn't crash" and "didn't wake up every dog in a 23km radius".

Ahh then indeed by that definition it is not SFF. I would certainly say it is in the sub mid tower category; whatever that might be called.

I'm hoping that the channels in the top of the PSU shroud function as intended and properly feed air into the GPU.

Are you sure the maximum on the top is 35?

I am looking to fit a EK Coolstream PE up on top and thats a 40 mil rad. I think TTL said 4o mil will fit but a 30 mil is recommended.

Does a 40 mil rad fit on top?

Thanks for your responses I am really excited for this case will be picking one up on release date if my Microcenter stocks up on a couple smile.gif

Nope. Couldn't fit a Silverstone TD02-Slim with the fans attached up top. Rad = 22mm + Fan = 15mm Total = 37mm and it was too tight at the top of the channel shroud by a couple of mm.
