But it was really heavy and the airflow sucked with 2 80mm fans on the side and only an opening for a 60mm in the back. It was a bit of fiddling about and staring closely at very small print on the mobo but not too bad. I have also seen sound dampener mats and the like, should I install those also? The Antec fans are very high quality. With the bigger side window, hiding the wires became more difficult. The 2 extra fans on the inside, are they needed with the front and rear 120's?. As you can imagine from the slightly diminutive exterior of the Super Lanboy, the interior isn't super expansive either. I saw that blank spot on the motherboard header and was scratching my head 'til it bled on what I need to connect there, wondering where the heck the speaker wire was.
The silver and blue theme is pretty tight. Each drive sled for the internal 3. On the inside, the most interesting thing was the hard drive bays, which are mounted sideways across the case. Yes, the aluminum is thin. All you do is simply wrap it around the case then fasten it. Is there any way you can take a picture of the audio connector on the Lanboy? I'll look again when I dissect that case a little more.
The whole system weighed in much lighter than my previous Wavemaster setup and is about the same weight as the original Lanboy setup I had available. I was not disappointed at all. Thanks for the replies, all. I'd take a picture, but I'm lazy Nettwerk, you could just use the 120mm fan itself to hold the rad to the back of your case, but damn that thing looks sweet, even if it is putting a ton of torque on your Lanboy I got mine on the 10th, and my rebate form says I have until October 10th, so everyone else who hasn't submitted their rebate yet like me probably still has some time left except for those that got in on the deal last year ;p. Nice job on modding your case. Antec has also included a free nylon carrying strap just like with the first Lanboy.
Now the loudest thing is my server box sitting a meter away which is a p2-450 slot 1 box. It wasn't necessary once I saw the temperatures on my mobo chipset decrease loads. Hang on to them cases. While the Super Lanboy is already a really good case, there are certain points that in my opinion could be improved. For fans, only consider dampeners if the fans are causing resonance on the case, often seen with cheep steel cases. Overall, it's a very good case. Wow, that is pretty tight.
I just simply mounted the cpu and Thermaltake Silentboost. Dust-filters are always a sensible option, but make sure you clean them regularly. The first one i got was defective, there's a small depression along the seams of the back panel, my psu won't fit, i had to exchange it. You can't call it a double post because they are totally different time periods and even stores. All logos and trademarks in this site are property of their respective owners. I don't think you'll need them unless you have a Vantec Tornado fan strapped onto your pc. I only have one dvd-drive, one hard disk, and one floppy disk, so the rest of the bays I could install with the sound dampeners except for one or two at the bottom to allow for air-flow through the front fan.
Are you having the cables face the window and then run them to the motherboard or have them face the right part of the case i. The front fan grill is more restrictive and you can hear some air turbulence noise when the fan is running at 12V. And a windowed side panel that lets you show off your drool-inducing rig. Antec products are distributed in Australia by. I have one watercooled and its still really lightweight to carry outside or to fix something. It also runs the 2 fans low speed until the temperature gets too high at which it will kick in at full speed. Its durable anodized aluminum body packs 9 drive bays.
Maybe you can go a bit more in depth as to what's wrong? High output, yet very quiet. Then at one point I may drill holes on the side-window and put an 80 or 92 fan there to help take heat out the side. Other than for a short period of testing I ran both fans at 5V instead of 12V. Also, thin aluminum isn't the best sound reducer. Only thing I dislike about it is that it didnt come with a pc speaker but you can just buy a cheap one and velcro it to the back side of the cdrom bays. Firstly, the rear 120mm exhaust port is very well defined allowing for unobstructed airflow out of the case.
These mounts do an excellent job of decoupling the fan so that any fan vibration or noise isn't amplified by being bolted solidly to the case wall. All you have to do is open the window from the case and pull out the appropriate power cable s. I was so impressed with this case that I bought a second Super LanBoy. Is it more important to have a lower speed at the back? I personally would have started a new thread. You can also see interesting modding of this case by tiamat.
I've had a loud computer for the last couple years and I was looking to go quieter for the sake of my sanity. Just the first few times, they may be hard. I love this case and own 2 of them. Antec provides special shoulder bolts that give the right amount of tension when the bolts are tightened until they bottom out on the drive. From the onset I knew I was going to have a hard time fitting everything in. I cut the side where that box that holds bolts and other things out and hid my wires back there Comes with a carrying strap too and holds 4 hd's.
