Conclusion


Lanboy Air is targeted multiple market segments at the same time instead of just designing it for a single market. The handles, LED-fans and the cage for the power supply are for instance intended for the gamer and LAN-people. The possibilities in watercooling and the 15 x 120 mm fan locations are something the overclocker demands. The enthusiast and creative types will on the other hand appreciate the fan control, the design in modules and SSD-support.


Build quality is fair thanks to the structure in steel and the solid elements in plastic. A few sharp edges in the case are to be found but they are not that sharp. The motherboard and power supply and be moved up and down in the case depending of the preferences of the user.


The expansion possibilities are good in regards to GFX-cards and CPU cooler. GFX-cards can have a maximum length of 406 mm and up to three cards can be mounted in SLI/CrossFireX. The CPU-cooler can be changed without removal of the motherboard from the tray and it can have a maximum height of 160 mm.


Optical drives, harddrives and GFX-cards needs to be mounted with screws. Antec have not been able to contrive any smart or confortable mounting systems which is a bad job from Antec. 3.5” harddrives can be mounted in different directions but hangs crooked because of the rubber mounting mechanisms.

The pre-mounted fans are equipped with fan-controllers. The case can contain 15 x 120 mm fans which gives an enormous cooling potential together with the ventilating mesh. Antec has not equipped the case with dust filters so problems with will emerge over time.

 

USB 3.0 and SSD support are two very attracted features. A cable from the front panel needs to be connected to the motherboards backside to make the USB 3.0 port usable. The test shows good cooling temperatures both at high and low speeds. Think about the possible cooling if all fan locations where in use. The noise level is acceptable at low fan speeds whereas it can be heard from a distance at high speeds.


 

The LanBoy Air can at the moment be bought for 1500 kroner in Danish online stores. It is a very high price and it will presumably scare away most potential buyers. The case have no dust filters or tool-less mounting systems and the high price can therefore not be justified. On the other hand – if the design in modules, the dedicated LAN-features and the many fan locations seams appealing then we will not discourage a purchase of LanBoy Air – The case is unique and priced thereafter.
