Real Air Mover! 11/14/2010
First time I seen this case a few months back, I knew I would be doing a build using it. Been in the computer business for a number of years, retired from it about 7 years ago, but need a new "hot" video editing computer for a new 60p camera I purchased. Started looking at all the parts I needed, and first one on the list was Antec's Lanboy Air. Wanting to stay away from water cooling (for now anyway), I knew the next best way to do that is to move massive amounts of air to dissipate heat as fast as possible. So, along with this case I purchased the Noctua NH-U12P CPU cooler to keep this cooler air moving though a very large CPU heatsink. Between these 2 jems, I am able to overclock (minimally) my AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition from stock 3.2GHz all the way to 4.154GHz!!! This is a fully stable overclock -- Run Prime95 for hours @ core temps of 56C. Max. There is more headroom here, but without going to water cooling, I've about reached my limit. Excellent choice!!
I really can't think of any real cons. I am going to purchase 4 more 120mm fans, 2 for the top of the case and 2 for the m/b side. The 2 on top will pull air up and out (same direction the Noctua NH-U12P is moving CPU heated air out of the case now) and the 2 side fans will blow in, to help lower temps on the rear of the motherboard and CPU backplate.
I have build the best video editing computer I've ever used. A big part to this, is the Lanboy Air. Without it, I would have to used water cooling to reach these fully stable speeds. If you would want to know more about this build, take a look at some youtube video I've put up. Search speedwingnet on youtube. Don't no if any of these comments are unacceptable, but it is all good info, so hope it flies. Good luck on your next build.
