[ Case Mod ] Lan Boy Air - Full Steel Lanboy - Page 10

and finally the NZXT HUE ,
the led stripe itself feel really nice and have been well incastred in rubbery platic.
the controller itself look strong and well built, some nice place to pass cable and ties them .

only point i m not too crazy about it that it is a full length 5.25 bay device but there is only the first 1-2 cm that are usefull , i would have liked a shorter 5.25 device to be able to rout cable behind., specially on this mod as my cables come from the psu under the optical drive and behind the short fan controller to the backlighted plate and to the mobo

i did a test for the front panel , i will stick to the dot patern/ chain of holes method , it s a lot easier and i think it look really better.
i just need to make a better work at marking these at the beginning

i will use this panel for the inside one between mobo aera and front and make a bigger cutout on this mess biggrin.gif

front plate test number 2 , i like this design better but i m not really 100% happy with it too , i hope with the rest around it will be better .
the color on the picture look very white and washed in the design aera while perfectly fine around the plate.
i have no idea why as i can see them good like in the first test but on cam it s a mess.

thanks for the answer !

i have made an opal acrylic panel for the front and i will put the front plate over it , lighting the plate all around on about 5 mm and lighting the design too. like that i can change the design really easily when i don't like it anymore smile.gif








the light bleed in the sides are the side panel not closed and the blue cold cathode behind the cable cover plate.
the color is uniform to the naked eyes , but on the cam, we can see where the led are behind.

i have received some more goodies for this build , the 4 Alpenfohn wing boost orange 140 mm and some articlean (i'm out of pure ethanol ,... and couldn't find some for good price )




So far these fans look incredible :

first they have a fantastic rubbery feeling to them , they feel very heavy and sturdy , let me tell you my noctua look like toys next to these.
second the finish is fantastic you get a male and female 4 pins at the end of the fan cable in order to daisy chain them in 1 fan plug, even the cables not sleeved between the frame and the motor are black and grey instead of the colored mess you have on most fan .
they have 2 set of holes for mounting 120 and 140 mm fan emplacement which i think is brillant because you can fix 140-280 rad in 120 spot as long as you have the space around.
and to add it up you get a very nice bundle with them too , some anti vibration mount of the same color as the fan , a cable extension that goes from 4 to 3 pins sleeved very well like the initial cable of the fan.
the only bad point of these fans is the molex adaptator which is not sleeved and look ugly , but so far i never saw a fan that came with better so i m being picky to find something negative.

picture of the fans in place , i can put the grid back if i want to but the fan get noisy after , it s sad because without it, the fans are 100% silent at full speed ,...
they work excellent , i m unable to hear any noise from them, i have to get so close to them with my ear i start hearing the motor buzz before the fan ( i m actually at 1 inch from it with my ear when i can hear the first noise, astonishing, and i have a very good hearing according to test i do every year for work).
they feels like they move a lot more air then my corsair AF 140.





best fan i ever came across by a good margin, you feels like an ass falling for noctua marketing after ,.... and they are considerably cheaper then noctua and about the same price as corsair . i m blown away ,.....

i have already gained 2 C on cpu idle temp, 4 C and 14% fan speed on the gpu idle with these fans on the side pannel thumbsupsmiley.png
only bad point i get some chilly air on my legs , the combinaison of the 2 alpenfohn as intake and 2 ernermax as exhaust seems to move more air then the 4x 200 mm fans on my HAF X , and it's further away from my legs biggrin.gif maibe it s because i have zero restriction in front of the fans in the mod and these grid on the haf-x cut the air flow too much
