    Indeed, the review pretty much reflects my thoughts, it's crap and looks like a complete eyesore.

    "Antec's open-air design performs well with a cool 18.1ºC ambient temperature. We don't imagine it performing quite so well in the year's hotter months."

    It'll perform no worse than any other case. I fail to see what relevance this statement has. If it's warmer outside, it goes without saying that the temperatures will increase, unless you're using a chilled cooling source...

    Good concept, but not for me thanks. My first thought was "imagine how many radiators you could mount in that bad boy", but looking at it, I don't think you'd actually fit that many. I do like the modularity, but the aesthetics just don't ring my bell...

    This case is also considerably smaller than the 2 cases being compared against - they both support e-atx additionally. Is it an enthusiast case, or is it a gaming case? The name suggests gaming, but looking at the weight I'm not so sure.

    Surely the case would have been better made from Ali.... The delivered product, I'm afraid, is just an expensive gimmick....

    Re: Reviews - Antec LanBoy Air modular chassis review

    I recently bought this case for a new build, choosing it mainly for the aesthetics which although not in everyone's taste, do appeal to me.

    Having now lived with it for a few weeks, while I still love the look I am still feeling disappointed at the awkward build and high cost.

    The side-panel mounted fans make removing the panel a bit of a fiddle and you do get a fair bit of dust build up on the outside of the intake fans, though I live near a quarry so...

    Finally, the access to the optical drive being through a side panel preserves the pleasing front view.
