Inside the Manta Continued
The back of the Manta shows us the third 120mm fan included with the chassis, and the end is prewired out and behind the motherboard tray. The expansion slots are ventilated with their covers, but again, access is had from outside.
Behind the motherboard tray, we find that the wiring is all ran to the bottom, and sealed in a plastic bag to protect the paint inside the case. Two PCBs are found near the CPU cooler access hole, and the bottom of the Manta is wide open.
Moving closer, we find the PCB on the left is a PWM fan controller boards. It is a powered board that uses a PWM signal from the motherboard to power up to seven fans. The PCB at the back edge of the case is for the LED light switch. The two leads run to the NZXT logo on the side, to the rear I/O lighting.
If you want to use 3.5" drives, it is under the cover, at the front of the case, that they can be mounted via the grommets in the floor. This is also the third location for a 2.5" drive if the trays do not cover your needs.
At the back, we then find room for the PSU. Since there is nothing in front of it, the length does not matter, unless you plan to install drives in front of it. The bottom of the case is opened well with the filter below it to clear the air of debris, and there are four rubber pads to isolate the PSU once it is installed.
In the wiring bundle, we find a Molex plug and a couple of fan extension wires for the fan controller. There are front panel LED and switch wires, an HD Audio connection, and a native USB 3.0 connection to make to the motherboard.
