Product Description

Meet the LanBoy Air. Nearly every part on this case, even the motherboard and PSU mounts, is modular and customizable. Up to 15 exhaust fans create positive air pressure inside the case that blows dust and heat out through panel perforations. Up front, the LanBoy Air's AirMounts HDD mounting system literally suspends drives in mid-air for unsurpassable vibration and noise resistance. Along with its two internal 2.5" SSD bays and a front-panel USB 3.0 port, the LanBoy Air is the last word in high-flexibility PC case design.

Ok, I just finished putting together my Lanboy Air RIG. First, it is pretty heavy compared to it's older generation anodized aluminum Superlanboy (released back in 2007 and an excellent product).


1. Modular to the true sense. You can literally take everything apart.
2. About 14 fan slots for 120 mm fans with 4 pre-installed.
3. I am using it with 2 GeForce 560 Ti cards and true to their promise, Antec does deliver the spaciousness.
4. Has it's own grounding.
5. Capable of supporting liquid cooling and SSDs.


1. "Where are the screws???" I read around and it appears that it is not just me but other customers have had difficulty locating the screws. They are screwed tight inside the supposedly "toolbox" at the very bottom front of the cabinet.
2. The toolbox is itself a disgrace compared to the one they had for the Superlanboy which was easily accessible (of course, without you needing a screwdriver to take it out). In this model, it is smaller and inconspicuously hidden out of sight and screwed tight at the front bottom of the cabinet.
3. No user manual included other than a couple of 2 and a 4 page leaflet on how to complete the grounding and how to install the SSD (if you are using one).

Though, I would be neutral to it but the "hanging installation" concept of hard drives leaves much to be desired from customers like me. Some reviewers have liked the idea, though.

Other than these, pretty much a winning product. Good job Antec!

This is an extremely flexible case. I recommend it for a water cooling rig.

Ironic that I'd recommend a case that is designed for air flow for a water cooling rig?

Not so fast.

First of all, even though this case is advertised as having excellent air flow properties it's actually pretty lousy in that regard.

You see, the way air cooling works in a PC case is like a wind tunnel. The fans in the front pull the air into the case and across your hot components, then the other fans push the air out the back, sides and top. This causes the air to flow over the components and wick away the heat.

In a case like the Lanboy Air, the fans are pointed directly at the components and blow over them, but there's no air flow through the case, and so the "wind tunnel" effect is non-existant.

In my tests I found that air cooling this case, even with all of the 15 120mm fan slots filled, is not nearly as effective as air cooling my closed panel case with only two fans in push-pull configuration. Temperatures were consistently higher on my GPU and CPU.

But! That's not where this case shines.

Where it really shines is in water cooling configuration. Why?

It's because the case is so modular and open. There are plenty of ways to run water tubing and power cables for your water cooling unit.

The only drawback is that everything is held in place with screws. Oh my gosh, so many screws. Would it have killed these guys to use a few spring lock mechanisms?

Most of the time I've spent dis-assembling and re-assembling this case has been working the screws. Putting it together the first time took about an hour because of all the screws.

I bought the Antec LanBoy Air a few weeks ago for a build I was doing. I also could not find the screws. I ended up calling the company and, for $8, they sent me new screws. Before I received the screws, I ended up looking up the manual online. As it turns out, the manual isn't (wasn't) shipped with the case. It was however online. The only thing shipped with the case was a quick start guide. A one pager with the layout of the case in 8 languages. As it turns out, the screws were in a hidden compartment on the bottom front of the case called by the manual, the toolbox. The entire case comes apart with thumbscrews except the toolbox part, where you need a Philips head screw driver and that's where the screws were. I wish that when I called up the Antec help/support line, they mentioned that the screws were in there to me. They, in fact, didn't mention anything to me. I told them the case didn't come with screws and they just sent me a new set for $8. They didn't ask me if I looked in the toolbox or anything, they just took my order. I like the case but their help line leaves a lot to be desired.

I purchased this case for a custom built computer I assembled a few years ago. So far it has held up VERY well. It looks amazingly cool at night with the blue lights inside, the cable management is painless with all of the places to zip tie cables into place, and the modular design makes it super easy to install and remove components with ease.

I move a lot between going to college and moving back home, and this case has held up very well to the constant moving and abuse I've thrown at it. I think my favorite feature overall are the rubber hard drive suspension mounts. They keep my hard drives floating and free from friction from the subtle bumps and bangs this case takes in transit. My only minor concern is that with it being an open-air design, it has a tendency to collect a lot of dust and particulate matter inside the case after a few months - no big deal though since it is hardly difficult to clean out with some Dust Off.

5 stars for a quality design and a reliable case that will keep pleasing for years to come. :)
