Customize Your Case

With seven removable, mesh panels and an entirely modular interior, the Antec LanBoy Air Open-Frame Case provides a highly customizable framework for building the exact computer you want. Even the mounts for the motherboard and power supply are removable and adjustable, so you can have your PSU at the top or bottom of the case, or move your motherboard up or down to a specific position. You can also use one of the front side panels as the door, and mount your drives to the left or right instead of facing forward.

Drive Bays to Meet Your Needs

With eight expansion slots to support triple graphics-card configurations, six internal 3.5-inch bays, and three external 5.25-inch bays, the LanBoy Air provides extensive options for personalizing your computer or gaming system. It also includes two internal 2.5-inch SSD bays for smoothly integrated fast data transfer.

Protects Hard Drives

The LanBoy Air features a ground-breaking AirMount hard-drive suspension system, which literally suspends up to six drives in midair for vibration resistance and noise reduction.

Innovative Cooling System Allows Up to 15 Inward-Facing Fans

Designed with intensive users in mind, the LanBoy Air includes two 120-millimeter side LED fans for graphics-cards cooling, one 120-millimeter rear LED fan with external two-speed controls, and two 120-millimeter front LED fans with stepless control knobs. Optional fans include two 120-millimeter fans for CPU and memory cooling, six 120-millimeter side fans for the drive bays, and two 120-millimeter top fans. The unique airflow design creates a positive, internal air pressure that blows heat and dust out through the panel perforations. Water cooling support is also offered.

Top-Mounted I/O ports for Easy Access

Situated at the top of the front panel are access ports for headphones, microphone, two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, and the power and reset buttons, so you can quickly and easily plug in to your system.

Technical Details

At 20.3 pounds, the LanBoy Air is 20.37 inches tall, 19.29 inches deep, and 8.74 inches wide. It features durable construction, a sleek, black finish with contrasting color accents, and carry handles that flip up for easy transport. The LanBoy Air is compatible with Mini-ITX, microATX and Standard ATX Motherboards.

The Antec LanBoy Air Modular Open-Frame Case is backed by a manufacturer's three-year limited warranty.

It's extremely flexible, very modular and very solidly built.
Majik
The fans on high are pretty quiet and on low you can barely hear them -it comes with 5 fans.
Daniel Haase
I am usually very cheap when it comes to cases, so this is a true upgrade for me.

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).

Pros:

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.

Cons:

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.

Love this case. It's not to big but has a ton of space. The finish is perfect. Love the blue.

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. :)

I built my x79 machine around this case and I love it!!! I have heard a lot of concerns about "possible" dust build up, but after 8 months, my machine is spotless inside. Infact, It is the best dust free rig I have ever had. Perhaps it is because of my fan configuration which is two in the front, blowing in, one out in the back and a 120mm fan on my videocard attached to an aftermarket cooler. My set up is all air-cooled and I am just not seeing any dust build up at all. I have to admit that I am not a power-user so I don't need all the fans and/or liquid cooling. However, I think that this a great case and I would choose it again.

Good day to who concern.
This Case in the best in the world for an nice ventilated computer, You just need to add a couple of 120mm fan (preferable Antec tri-cool) and you will have a nice and silent good ventilated computer for your air cooling system (if you don't have a sealed water cooler).

Excellent choice and I hope that the next revision should obtain 2 USB 3.0 ports in the front and connected through mobo.

Thanks.
