Post subject:  Norco 4220 size question

Hello,

Can one of you Norco 4220 (or 4020) owners do a favor for me? I REALLY want to build a new WHS based on this case (I am rapidly outgrowing my HP MSS), but I don't have much room for it. Can you verify the dimensions that I have marked in the attached image?

Also, do you know if the front handles are removable, including the tabs they are mounted to? At 19" wide, I have a hard time putting this case away anywhere. But, if removing or cutting off the handles makes the box 18" wide or less, I'm good.

Thanks a bunch!

A: 19"
B: 16 7/8+"

The front handles are removable. The tabs are not. The tabs are an integrated part of the front face.

Thanks, carediver! It'll never get rack mounted, so it looks like I'll cut off or bend one of the tabs to fit the thing in my closet.

Oh, one more thing...do you have any more of those 120mm fan brackets for that case?

If you cut off the tabs, you'll loose the integrity of the front face.

I do not have 120mm fan boards available now.

If you get a norco, definitely get cavedivers fan board. It makes a huge difference in noise level.

I do not have fan boards available now. Norco is selling a 120mm fan board for their newer cases which I suspect can be used in the older boxes with a few modifications (screw holes drilled to match the new fan board). Norco is selling their 120mm fan board w/ shipping for less than my fabricating cost.
