Description

My first mini itx build. I will take pics with a good camera and update description on the weekend.

I have always liked small builds and thought that huge cases are a waste of space!

After first seeing the manta it was love at first sight and i started to save money. I researched a lot and wanted to get the best parts possible still keeping the red black color scheme. I know the theme has been done many times but it just seem that all gaming peripheral are that color so why not!

The i7 & Gtx 1080 paired with a 144hz monitor is a dream come true! I have always played on a tv before and this feels surreal at the moment! money well spent i say!

The back fan is a Jonsbo FR-101 led fan and i think it´s the most beautiful fan out there and really makes the build look a bit different from others.

The blue led strip makes the colors look awesome too IMO

Stay tuned for better pictures

Part Reviews

CPU

What can you say? works like a dream straight from the box

CPU Cooler

Keeps my i7 at under 30c idle and rarely goes up to 60c while gaming. Original fans are super loud when at higher speeds

Motherboard

Not an motherboard specialist but has been working flawlessly!

Video Card

A dream come true! Ultimate card for 2k gaming

Case

So beautiful and a pleasure to work with

Monitor

My first real gaming monitor! minus one star for backlight bleed but honestly i don´t see it if i don´t look for it

Keyboard

My first mechanical keyboard. Loving every second typing with it. Cherry reds feel like a good starter key

Mouse

Lightweight. No extra software. So precise! Good for a smaller hand.

Nice build! I slapped a hyper212 and 2 corsair sp120 I had left over from 2011 build on my 6700k when I got it waiting on my brain to decide on a aio cooler. I oced it to 4.7 @1.36v for fun to see if the old hyper could cool it and bam under 30 idle and 58-60 gaming. It hits 75 on prime95 though lol but I leave the sp120 at 100% cause I don't care about the noise really. I'm still going to buy an aio for looks but it's funny that you don't need too much to cool an i7 6700k!

That's awesome! Yea the i7 is a really cool card! I would love to oc a little bit but I'm a complete noob with that stuff

I notice very little improvement past the stock turbo really lol but I play at 1440p so that may be why

pls add more pictures! and WOW! that is a great looking case! 1+! Kraken x62 wouldve looked cooler but this is great too!

I bought it used from a tech shop that closed.. It's heavy as hell though

ZombieX8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 25 months ago

Added some pictures and will add more still.. Not entirely happy with the motherboard power cable.. Will change it up a bit

Hey, where can I get my hands on a Jonsbo FR-101 led fan? I'm building a similar build and just LOVE LOVE LOVE the look of that fan.
