Testing:

To test the Antec Lanboy Air, temperatures will be recorded for the CPU, GPU, chipset, hard drives, and the overall system temperature during load and idle phases. Load will be simulated by Prime95 small FFTs and HD Tune for one hour with maximum temperatures recorded by RealTemp. The GPU load will be the maximum value recorded by Catalyst Control Center after five loops of 3DMark06’s Canyon Flight test. Each case is tested as is from the factory, including the fan configuration. As stated earlier, the fan configuration for the Lanboy Air is 2x120mm front intake, 2x120mm side intake, and 1x120mm rear exhaust. The adjustable fans will be run at full speed for all tests.

Wow, what a mixed bag. The hard drive temperatures achieved by the Lanboy Air crushes all of the other cases, and has a pretty impressive GPU temperature result. The CPU and chipset temperatures were, for the most part, in the middle. I was hoping for a little bit better results, seeing as how the open frame should significantly improve airflow everywhere, but doesn't seem like it does to the chipset and CPU area of the motherboard. This isn't a terrible surprise, since the two side fans provide more airflow over the GPU than anywhere else. Adding two more fans to the top of the side here would certainly assist the chipset and CPU temperatures. That being said, the next page will feature my final thoughts and conclusion of this review.
