    Just wondering if anyone has used an Antec Lanboy case. I like it cause it has 2 120mm fans and a big side window. If anyone has this case let me know how well it cools, and how well parts fit in it.

    thx in advance.

    I just got the case a couple of days ago, and I'm not so impressed with the usage and quality.

    Here are the problems I found:
    1. The side panels are not easy to open
    2. The door to the floppy and optical devices are hard to open. There's only like a 1.5cm gap to put your finger into.
    3. The hard drive cage definitely blocks air flow.
    4. Standoffs (screws) for the motherboard were not installed for you
    5. Both side panels must be opened to install the optical, floppy and hard drive properly (no rails).
    6. Cables are even messier (not the IDE cables, but the cables like HD LED, Power LED etc)
    7. The faceplates at the back could be easily bent, and hard to take out.

    However, I do like the 2 x 120mm silent fans, 350W PSU, larger clear side window, light in weight, and the price. Wish they had another blue UV 120mm fan at the back.

    Ok I have 2 of these cases now;) needles to say I like em. One thing I did though, I reversed the flow of the fans.(my desk sits in front of a window) With the window cracked, the rear fan draws cold air from outside right over the proc. This was very effective, lowered temps to 26C at idle! The air coming form my psu is even cold.

    I think what hees trying to say is that the cool air from your window being cracked and the hot temps of your proc will produce condensation.

    not sure though:confused:

    Yah, thats exactly what happens, cool moist air cools the metal, creates condensation droplets, water and electronics dont mix well :no: . : peace2: Mista K6
