5 out of 5 eggsBeutiful Case

Pros: This case has too many pro's to mention them all, but the best features are well worth talking about. First of all, the case's construction is excellent. Not a single cheap plastic within the case - a huge pro for me. I've had too many cases that looked good online but when I received them, they were complete garbage.
The motherboard tray is offset from the left side panel to allow for easy cable management. Both right & left sides have two ways to get into the case. The main one simply unscrews and you can remove it to get to the mainboard/cards, etc.. the second smaller door swings open with the removal of one screw to allow access to the HDD bay.
The HDD mounting system is like no other system I've seen before. The case has rubber mount which attach to the HDD on each side. The mounts are then attached to the HDD bay, allowing the HDD to "float". Reduces vibration, noise & wear and tear to the HDD's.
The entire case is vented, allowing for excellent airflow. You can attach up to 4 120mm fans on the right side of the case. Each smaller door allows up to 3 more 120mm fans for an overall total of 10 fans, as well as two 120mm fans on the front of the case. All in all, you have enough space as well as mounting capabilities to instal 12 120mm fans - excellent for setting up the ideal push/pull configuration, keeping the internal bits in the case nice & cool.

Cons: Sadly, Antec seems to have stopped production of this particular model! Shame on you Antec.
Floating HDD mounting can be somewhat difficult logistically.
Cable management is terrible if you have the maximum number of 120mm fans installed. You have to extremely creative in order to reduce cable clutter, otherwise you're bound to have at least one cable hitting the fan blades. I had to play around with configuring the cables for the fans and eventually just getting enough molex to 3 pin fan adapters with both in and out molex power cables, allowing for more cable length and easier management. I basically had one extremely long line of cables that I could sequester away from the fans and allowing for a less cluttered interior.
No USB 3.0 ports in the case itself, but that can be overcome by installing a USB 3.0 card.
Heavy.
Not enough room to use an all in one cooling system.
Requires custom screws to mount side fans and you can only install 120mm fans due to the fan mounting configuration.

Other Thoughts: The case is designed for water cooling, but not a one piece unit such as an Antec Kuhler H2O, which was what I happened to buy. I figured it would be compatible being as they were both Antec products. Even with the offset brackets supplied with the radiator unit, there still isn't enough space. However, aside from that, there is, surprising, a lot of room internally for a mid-size tower.
The fact that you can install 120mm fans really isn't that big of a deal, but potential buyers may have additional sized fans which would not be compatible. I thought that this case would be the last case I ever bought. However, the inability to install the Kuhler led me to purchasing a full size tower (Cooler Master HAF stacker).
Truly an excellent case. I highly recommend grabbing a used one if you can find one. I expect that will be difficult, however, due to all the benefits of this case. I plan on eventually building a new desktop & will use this case to house everything.

5 out of 5 eggsTHIS IS THE BEST CASE YOU COULD EVER WISH FOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: It has FANTASTIC air flow, and HANDLES. Oh thank goodness for the handles. The hard drive is suspended by bungee cords, which is really nice. This is by far the best case I have ever seen. Especially since I travel from my boyfriends house to my house a lot and drag my computer back and forth, the handles are the best part for me. They are strong enough that I can lift my computer on just one handle, they also click into the case so they don't flap around. The air flow on the case is fantastic. I've been using this case since 2011, and I maybe have cleaned it out twice, and when I did there was barely any dust in it.

Cons: If I leave my computer on over night, the lights light up my room so because the case is so open. But really there isn't any.

Other Thoughts: Great size, sturdy build, and plenty of room for everything.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutley love this

Pros: This case is amazing not heating issue at all. It has tons of fans for a simply amazing cooling experience. Everything runs cool and its design is amazing. Handles at the top for east carrying/moving. You can move the fans anywhere. Perfect for water cooling with mounts on the top to screw the fans and heatsinks and spaces for the hoses in the rear of the case. The hard drive is basically hovering in the air right in the flow of the intake fans. Plenty of space inside. Mother board installation with the pull out tray is simply cake.

Cons: Not sure if these are cons but I will put them in here just o be safe. I live in southern Utah and it is very dry and hot here in the summer. And this thing collects tons of dust. However it very east to spot with this case. I simple weekly cleaning with some air and a vacuum and it is all good.

The power supply casing has a big metal piece going down the middle of it and it seems it may block airflow if your PSU. I cut the middle piece off with a dremel and it now blocks very little airflow. I was afraid of modifying that piece but it was easily cut off.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far

Pros: This case is very easy to work with, has plenty of space and just looks great.

Cons: None, I have had no issues with this case and have been using it for almost 2 years and 2 complete rebuilds.

Other Thoughts: I never did really get into case modding but I loved the look of this since I first saw it. It's functional, easy to use and it's portable - to an extent :)

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: Very easy to setup. I really like the fact that the hard drive location you can have it like a door so its easy to remove or add drives plus you can have the drives in two different ways where most cases only have one way you can put drives in

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Slits on the sides allowed me to pull my pci power cords outside the case and suspend them so that the side would not bend/push them down on the card then the bottom slit allowed me to tie said cords so that they would not lay on the heat pipes of my hd 7870

comes with 5 blue led fans each with two speed setting controllers.

since the case is pretty much full mesh you can install non 120 mm fans if you are a bit creative. I have a 80mm fan installed as an intake where one of the SSD mounts are on the bottom and still have enough room for one of the 2.5 inch drives to be mounted there.

PSU cage, seriously need to become a standard on cases.

did not have too much difficulty with cable management, but if you max out the fans I dont really think you need to worry about perfecting it unless you are going for aesthetics.

the rubber feet on this definitely have a quality feel to them.

Air flow is nice.

Cons: its yellow, after purchase I found out it came in red [ and blue i think] but newegg does not carry it.

nowhere to place case badges, well the larger ones anyways, ended up putting it on top underneath the front handle. [lol]

Front USB 3.0 is FAKE [plugs into rear i/o]
Manual is online but who doesnt have a second computer to look it up with.

Other Thoughts: the fake usb 3.0 did not make me too happy. I dont know if I overlooked it in the description or what but it cost my review an egg, otherwise I would have done 5 eggs.

This case is huge, and im glad since i barely got all my parts to fit, seriously a tight fit inside due to my absolutely huge graphics card

even under load the air pushing out feels pretty cold and i have only added a 80 mm fan and the 2 water cooling cpu fans [which freed up the rear exhaust, but i think it was set as an intake as shipped...]
I can feel a lot of air pushing out the top, and not much pushing out the sides This case does not fight the natural heat flow but rather works with it.

overall I'm very impressed.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case

Pros: Cool looks
Lots of airflow
Removable plates everywhere
plenty of fan options
USB 3 on the front

Cons: The USB3 on the front requires a pass through cable, doesn't use a USB3 header on the motherboard
Top mount for liquid cooling radiators conflicts with the motherboard, not enough room.
Not the best case for cable management.

Other Thoughts: This case is fantastic to put a PC into, the plate for the motherboard is easily removed so you don't have to screw the board in inside the case, plenty of customizability enabled me to work around the issue I had mounting my Antec Kuhler 620 radiator.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost there

Pros: I love the design and the 'openness' that this chassis offers.

Cons: Unfortunately upon receiving the case I have not been able to do anything with it - as Antec seems to have forgotten to include any of the required screws.

Manufacturer Response:

Hey Dan,

Please email us at VIP@antec.com and we'll send you the screws. Not sure why your unit didn't come with any but let's get this taken care of. Thank you.

5 out of 5 eggsSpectacular case / looks great

Pros: Fun and easy to assemble all your hardware. Can configure many ways. Case air flow. The air mount HDD suspension. H20 ready, although it would be unnecessary, case stays cool. Looks Great!!

Cons: Lots of airflow = Lots of dust.

Other Thoughts: First build, specs: i7-3820; Corsair Hydro H80 CPU cooler; Asus P9X79 Deluxe MoBo; PNY Quadro 4000 video card; Corsair Dominator 16GB; Kingston Hyper X 120GB SSD; WD Black 1TB; 1Asus Blu-Ray burner / 1DVD/ROM; Powered by a Corsair HX850; OS Windows 8 Pro. Almost forgot the 4X Cooler Master red led case fans, making a total of 9 fans. Will be adding more fans in the future, not for cooling just for fun and looks. After owning pre-built machines in the past this case made first time build fun, and will never buy a pre-built again.

5 out of 5 eggsModular or easy to mod?

Pros: If you are reading these reviews, you're likely doing the same thing I was: Looking for clues to the level of modularity this chassis is capable of. Personally, I have the Red/Black version, but they are all the same in form and function. I'm sure you could find any of the known colors of this chassis by alternative means if they are still not available here. Anyway, key points of modularity are:
1. PSU mounting can be swapped above or below the motherboard.
2. Front fans can be relocated up or down in one-bay increments.
3. Front rack can mount up to 12 drives, but at most three 5.25" drives unless you buy more brackets from Antec directly. They are very cheap though!
4. Front rack side panels are actually doors if you leave the screw off, this allows sideways mounted drives. Only a small handful of chassis offer sideways drive mounting, and only this one offers both.
5. Base of the front rack has two SSD mounts and comes with soft rubber supports and dedicated screws. SSDs will mount facing the front or back.

Now for liquid-cooling options:
1. Rear exhaust port offers plenty of room for almost any 120mm radiator, the only possible exception being the Black Ice GT Stealth X-Flow due to having fitting points on both ends. Mounting a radiator here means fittings on top.
2. Both front rack side panels have proper spacing for up to triple-120mm radiators if you carefully drill-out the fan mounts. From here you could achieve push-pull with even an AlphaCool Monsta 360mm rad. If those air-mount brackets are in the way, they are easily removed. I have measured it out and there is exactly 200mm of usable space between both side panels on the front rack. Push-pull with a Monsta is 130mm, so you have plenty of room left for either a short bay-res or a tall tube res. You have 430mm to work with vertically if you still want to mount SSDs in the bottom. Yes these panels are plastic, but I have weight-tested them and they will easily support such a beast radiator.

Imaginations and theory-crafting:
Since this chassis is Yellow/Black, imagine the ASRock 1155 OC Formula board with Monsoon yellow anodized fittings, and a yellow fluid in clear tubing and clear tube res, along with yellow LED BitFenix Spectre fans. Imagine being able to do the same in the other chassis colors. The Lanboy Air is easily one of the easiest chassis ever to mod into an epic liquid-cooled PC.

Cons: Now the bad. I'm going to be just as critical here as my other review so get ready:
1. Motherboard cannot be inverted to the left side, the rails the tray is on don't have mounting points there. I'm sure this could be modded in with a Dremel though.
2. The entire frame is riveted together. Without serious modding, you wouldn't be able to transform this chassis into a respectable desktop form-factor without just converting it into a make-shift testbench.
3. The right side panel behind the motherboard tray is see-through. You'll want to cement in some custom-shaped black acrylic to prevent seeing your horrible cable management.
4. Cable management will be horrible since you cannot pass cables through to the front rack without going around the inner frame bar, and there are so very few tie-down points and only 15mm of room to work with.
5. Forget the top fan mounting points. They do not exist. Please, just leave it at that and move on.
...
...
You're sure? Okay... The top is recessed into the chassis so it's either right up against the PSU or the motherboard depending on your orientation. The screw mounts are raised to where the entire panel should've been, which leads me to believe Antec ONLY intended that to be used for an external radiator. It's so tight, only 13mm fans will fit respectably well internally.
6. Three fans included have molex pass-through and a toggle switch for high/low. The front fans however have a three-speed dial glued into their respective mounts, and the fans themselves are held in with clips. Well done Antec! Exclusive mounting and aesthetic for only that particular fan. Well done!
...
Okay, maybe I'm being a bit more cynical this review, but just as critical as promised!

Other Thoughts: I would like to point out that at the time of writing this, the Blue/Black, Red/Black, and Black versions of this chassis are unlisted and discontinued. If you'ld like to read my original review of the entire series, search Newegg for Antec Lanboy Blue and then search the reviews for the one by the same nickname. It wasn't anywhere near as nice as this one due to lack of foresight in liquid-cooling options. For this reason, I am changing my original 3/5 rating to a solid 5/5 rating. It's easily one of the best chassis ever thanks to how little effort it would take to turn a Lanboy Air into an epic liquid-cooled PC. I must reiterate something in a positive tone:
Well done Antec! Well done!
