Hello,

I am Building a new gaming PC (my first time). The two cases I am looking at are the Antec LAN boy air, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And the Rosewill Black Hawk, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I have two dogs so I am worried about hair getting into the LANboy air but I like the idea of the full mesh design. If the pet hair will cause a problem than i will just go with the black hawk.

Afaik all of the fans on the lanboy face externally giving lower air pressure inside the case, meaning theres a probably a lower chance of hairs getting in the lanboy that in the black hawk.

Also with this being your first build I would recommend the lanboy mainly due to the easy of access and mass customization of the case.

The lanboy will also give much better performanc and portability.

Summary.....Lanboy gets the medal hands down.

Thanks
Sig

Lan boy is like parrot.To much mesh. I like more Rosewill ,you can take down the side fan and put him on top ,and you will have a great cooling case.

I have the Lan tech and added three fans and with Black ops 2 or Battlefield 3 my cpu gets no hotter than 86 degree's and my graphics card gets no hotter than 80 degree's just to let you know I have a cat and hair does get on the mesh but just keep it clean and i'm sure you won't regret the Lan tech.

Oh and did i mention that the case comes with five fans and you can put up to 15 fans? I have 8 and all sides come apart easily

making it very easy to modify the way you want it and the carry handles on top help to make it easy to work on and since this is

your first build I, I garauntee you will like this case
