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.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case and sleek as hell!

Pros: So get this.. If you keep all your storage in the upper brackets you can fit 12"+ video cards in it, which is pretty much unheard of when it comes to mid towers. Had duel 280x R9s in it card measures 12 1/2".

Cons: My fans gave out really early and had to buy new ones.

The holes in the top were just be enough to fit a gum wrapper that fell off my desk onto the case through the hole and ontop of my 7770 which fried the hell out of it... Accidents happen though.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Last Case You'll Ever Need

Pros: High quality steel construction, solid as a rock.

Fit and finish are excellent. No pointy edges to cut yourself on. All the fittings and fasteners are high quality. Many, many options for how you can set up your system. Power supply on top or bottom? Check. BTX board? Got you covered. Petabyte raid server? We has the room!

Speaking of drives, they are mounted to little sleds that are then mounted to the case with bungee cords. This induces next to no vibration into the system, making the whole thin whisper quiet.

All fans are adjustable 120mm units, with mount points for more on top if needed.

Cooling concerns are a thing of the past since this thing's skin is 100% mesh except up top.

And it's a looker. It has a certain industrial design flair that will appeal to the sort of people that like case modding but don't own machine shops.

Cons: You need to keep up with your dusting. You really can't mount an air filter to the fans and call it done. Swiffer is your friend.

But I knew that going into this. :)

Other Thoughts: I had my first Lanboy for years. This one looks like it will outlast that by maybe five years. I honestly can't see needing anything else in the foreseeable future.

It's a shame these aren't in stock now. Here's hoping for another run.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Can do anything you want, put any parts almost anywhere. Very solid customisable case all around!

Had this case for well over a year.

Cons: I have none come to mind. I've read people talk about dust issues, but I think that depends on location and how you have it setup.

4 out of 5 eggsHeat Dissipation MASTER

Pros: No where for heat/air to get stuck in your case.
Modular format lets you do whatever you want.
Fits every form factor ever... like ever
Front mounted fans look amazing..
Perfect for anyone who likes to keep the Feng Shui of their case new and exciting.
Very easy to clean.
The handles are a lifesaver when you have to move this behemoth.

Cons: NO cable management. I mean none at all. I have quick release zipties that hold everything slightly in place.
The modular design hinders to use of this case. Each side of the case has two doors. The main door has six screws that you have to take out just to open the case... SIX!! The HDD door has one. If you need to swap something out or tinker it takes time to open the case, not just a quick slide motion like other cases.
Although the Bungee chords are nice to keep your HDDs from shock after a few months the rubber drastically changes color and just doesn't look as good, especially since everyone can see right into your case.
The weight seems a little much for how minimal the construct is.

Other Thoughts: After owning this case for over two years, I have to say its the best case I've ever owned. Yes, it has it's downsides, the biggest being cable management for me. Even with my modular PSU, cables can seriously block flow. That being said if you travel with your rig often, or you have too much heat build up in your case, this is the perfect case.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

Pros: Fantastic air distribution. Dust has a very hard time collecting on the inside of the case due to the negative pressure created inside the case if you point all fans inward. Plenty of room inside the case for hardware and additional fans. Easy to hide the wiring inside.

Cons: If you wont want to see the lights inside the case, you cant avoid them. If that's not a problem, then there are no cons.

5 out of 5 eggsSad to see this Case go

Pros: Everything about this case is a pro. Amazing air/cooling power, and upgradable slots and just the look and the fact that you can easily move the case around with out worrying about your precious internals makes it a dream.

Cons: None after more than a year of use.

2 out of 5 eggslots of airflow but it also comes with issues

Pros: like I said in the review it has nice airflow. there is alot of air flow in this case. able to mount alot of fans and the hard drive mount is nice not alot of vibration.

Cons: ok first of all cable management sucks, I mean I have 3 fans on the side and its very hard to manage the cables without it getting too close to the fans. I have to rearrange my fan cables everytime I open the case to clean it

it attracts dust like crazy I clean it every 2 months and there is ALOT of dust since there are holes everywhere in the case.

Honestly for this price I would get another case its not a bad cause but those 2 flaws are just too big

2 out of 5 eggsgreat case

Pros: This is the best case i have owned sine my p180. Air flow is superb with 7 fans. Running full throttle cpu temp is only 46c my 670 only 73c. the case is so roomy you can get to all components with ease. To bad they discontinued it.

Cons: Well the same thing is happening to this case that happened to my p180 the power button is going out. and just like the p180 I cant get a power switch for it. The case is only 2yr's old.

Other Thoughts: Antec makes some of the best case's on the market I just wish they would keep a better pasts supply in reserve. We spend good money on their products They intern should supply us with replacement parts. I believe this is my last Antec case

Manufacturer Response:

Hi John,

We have the power button for the LanBoy right now. Please email us at if you still need it. Thank you.

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 Blue/Black, imagine an MSI GD80 board with Monsoon blue anodized fittings, and a blue fluid in clear tubing and clear tube res, along with blue 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 Red/Black and pure Black versions of this chassis are unlisted on Newegg. If you'ld like to read my original review of the entire series, 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!
