This image is made by Antec and shows case’s the modular parts. It is especially worth mentioning the detachable motherboard tray, the power supply cage and the side panels.
LanBoy Air is available in three color combinations; Yellow/Black, Blue/Black and Red/black. The body is made of steel and this is the yellow parts, the backside and the internal side. The front, top and side contains plastic elements with a solid thickness so it can endure tough handling.
The case weighs 9.2 kg and is sized as follows: 518 mm (H) x 222 mm (W) x 4906 mm (D) – which adds up to be a midi-tower in size.
Antec have designed the LanBoy Air with big areas of mesh to improve the cooling potential. The front have the material on the drive covers and in-front of the two 120 mm fans. The side panels have mesh between a frame of plastic – they are detached by removing some finger screws. The process is inconvenient and takes a long time to perform compared to traditional solutions.
We have never experienced a case with 15 x 120 mm fan locations which seems kind of absurd. Antec have pre mounted 5 x 120 mm fans which can be controlled in RPM by a local fancontroller. This means that there is still 10 unused fan locations if the overclocker/enthusiast still needs extreme cooling for their new system.
There are 2 x 120 mm fans located on the side panel to cool the GFX-cards. These fans are specified to run 900-1500 RPM with a noise level on 27.9 dB.
To make it clear once and for all – Antec have not applied LanBoy Air with dust filters. This is criticizable as the mesh and the fans let dust enter the case pretty easy.
The case is externally the same from both sides with exception of Antec’s logo on the bottom right.
