Introducing the new NZXT Manta ITX case
Los Angeles, CA, January, 26th, 2016 – Softening the lines, changing the game, putting everything out there for everyone to see. NZXT takes ITX to a whole new level with a revolutionary design and uncompromising quality.
Forged with groundbreaking manufacturing technologies, Manta is the world’s first case equipped with curved, structurally reinforced steel panels. Yielding double the cable management space and unparalleled liquid cooling support, this case sets a new standard for mini-ITX.
“NZXT strives to deliver meaningful innovation across every product we are designing. Manta, our first ITX case, provides an innovative and efficient answer to the ITX equation for PC users who are looking for effortless and superior build” says Johnny Hou, NZXT’s founder & CEO.
Quality: durable and elegant
Manta utilizes an innovative new manufacturing process to create curved steel panels that offer a beautiful blend of elegance and strength that is unmatched by traditional ITX designs Echoing the smooth lines of an exotic sports car, it is a case that is designed for flaunting and accordingly equipped with the biggest window of any ITX case to date.
Innovation that matters
Leveraging its innovative curved design, Manta features unparalleled interior space for an effortless build. Smart interior layout and generous volume result in support for the largest power supplies and graphics cards while still offering an abundance of space for cable management and organization.
Another benefit of Manta’s roomy interior is its ample natural airflow and expandability for water cooling. It’s the first ITX case to support up to three radiators at once (2 x 280mm in the front and 1 x 120mm at the rear), making it a top choice for premium builds and custom loops.
Manta is also fitted with all of NZXT’s award-winning features such as rear I/O lighting, integrated PWM fan hub, SSD display and PSU shroud. Combined with Manta’s cutting-edge interior layout, building a PC system is as easy as it gets.
Manta is available in Matte White/Black, Matte Black/Red, and Matte Black with or without a windowed side panel.

Our thoughts: It’s nice to see another unusual case design going into production and not just a concept piece, and not a surprise that it’s from NZXT. It looks great from the images and I hope it looks that good in the flesh, I think modders are going to have a field day with it. – Craig
