My cousin is upgrading his CPU. He has me do his system building for him. I'm kind of the family IT guy. He wants to switch to Mini-ITX since he has to replace his motherboard anyway and we both hate his case. On my recommendation he decided on the NZXT Manta. Phanteks coolers are good and you can get them in colors to match the system so we're getting one. I don't know what I can fit in there though. The case has 160mm of clearance for the CPU and the PH-TC12DX is 157mm tall. Will it squeeze in or not? Has anyone tried it? The curved window has me a little worried about cutting it that close. If nobody can confirm for sure that it'll work I'll just go with the PH-TC14CS instead I guess. Thanks for any insight you guys can provide.
