I really loved working with the Manta from NZXT. Sure its big for an itx case but it made navigating the cables through the chassis a breeze. Not to mention the fact that it comes with a fan controller that controls non-pwm fans based on output from the cpu fan header. And the light on the rear IO panel can be a real life saver!! Specs are below

  • CPU: Intel core i5 6500 3.2Ghz

  • GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1060 6GB XTREME GAMING edition.

    With this massive cooler built into it the card doesnt see much above 65c

  • Motherboard: AsRock H170m-itx motherboard

  • RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY DDR4 2133 16gb (2 x 8gb)

  • OS SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250gb

  • SPACE HDD: WD blue 1.0 TB

  • PSU: Corsair CX600M semi-modular 80+ Bronze PSU

  • CPU COOLER: Zalman CNPS5X performa cpu cooler.

    The cpu barely hit 60c with this haha

Fun fact! I did have to "modify" the case to house this gargantuan graphics card by removing some material from the psu shroud. With the card in there you cant really tell so it works out. Plus the shroud acts as somewhat of a support now.

Tech Tuesday!

Introducing this weeks rig...The Crouton PC! (you know....cause its small)

UserPostedImage

Specs:

  • CPU: Intel G4560 $65 (I think @ microcenter)

  • Mobo: AsRock H110m-iTX/AC $48 (open box)

  • Ram: GeIL EVO POTENZA 8GB (4 x 2GB) $65 2400mhz

  • GFX: eVGA GTX 1050ti SC $150

  • PSU: Rosewill Green Series 630W 80+ Bronze $40 (cragslist, could probly find cheaper, really dont need anywhere near 630w)

  • SSHD: Seagate 500GB $37 (referb @ Microcenter)

  • Case: Raijintek Metis $20 (cragslist)

  • OS: Windows 10 Pro $$$varies$$$ (could stick with W10 home)

This was an excellent budget built. Big thanks to Microcenter for supplying the Mobo, CPU, Ram, and sshd. Total cost (without OS) was $425 before tax! (root beer not included)

Not bad for a solid 1080p gamer! Im definitely in love with the size and performance of this guy. I will say though a fully modular PSU would have been very helpful when stuffing

those cables in there. I had to trim some of the cables and de-solder many of the peripheral cables to fit them all cleanly. While i had the psu open i flipped the fan direction

so the intake is on the front bottom (through psu) and exhaust shoots out the back. I hope to build another one very soon since i bought two of these cases :)

That would be sweet, I love watching build vids. Also, the Craigslist escapades would be funny!
