    I am concerned that the compenents i have chosen may not fit into the super lan boy as it am aware it is very compact inside. Especially the size of a x1800xt, can anyone shed some light on it?

    Also can anyone give some indication as to when the super lanboy will come back in to stock, as it appears to be out of stock at most e-tailors and am afraid it has run out of production which would be a shame.

    Has anyone changed the slightly dodgey looking plastic grill on the front for a hex mesh or similar grill? Thats the only part of the case im not digging right now, but its a good quality case, and at a reasonable price.

    Thanks in advance, Raj

    The lanboy is a great little case with reasonable cooling but the only thing I dislike is the stupid rubber mounts they give you for the rear fan. My rear fan kept falling off, then I ended up pulling the fixings so hard that they all snapped off. Cant beat good old cable ties :p

    Not the side window, i meant the plastic grill on the front of the case that supposedly glows blue with the fan. I would be interested in changing that for something more metal.
