this is the biggest defect of storm trooper "the handle" because of it impossible to make a push / pull

yes I know.. and i am going to conquer this barrier too.

I am changing that back brace with another on taller and wider
there is plenty of room under that cover for all kinds of push pull ... its that darned handle that is killing us. We need to retrofit that thing with something common we can all buy and build.

I am thinking a brace that is made for Ceiling fans

On a Real Note. We need to concentrate on this problem
See the metal grasp at the back of the case.
We need to Modify a part that we can replace the back handle support to give us 3 to 5 cm on each side and an extra 2 to 3 cm.

I will be performing this mod soon as my Lga 2011 Quad Core comes Feb 14.. Valentines Day is going take on a whole new meaning for me soon.

Nothing for nothing... You know what this case look's like up close 'U'... I was wondering if you were able to rase the handle just by
it's mounting points alone. I mean right were it is bolted or Rived ( what ever it is{Don't own one, Don't Know} holding it)... Can a person maybe
shim right underneath those point's!!! That would bring the rest of the cover up a few mils. 'Right'????? Then you would have to use the rase difference in the holding brace
it-self.. You would be like lowering the brace; to spread the brace points out further, so you don't rase the handle to high in order to make the top covering fit in place. But at the same time
opening up the ports to were the fans would be sitting... Just enought to get some fans underneath those braces!!!! "What do ya think"???biggrin.gif

rolleyes.gif I hope you understood some of that tongue.gifrolleyes.gif .... Because after I re-read it, I didn't understand it either!!!! LOL biggrin.gif

this was my exact thoughts, but with a twist. the handle bracket could be cut shorter in height, then re bend it to match its old design. throw some screws in it, then everything is still factory but that bracket will be higher according to the spacers placed underneath

raise the bracket height and shorten the handle height.

raising, or shimming is a great Idea. But like viperwolf said we would have to compensate for the height by rebending that back hand brace by the same measurements .. Okay..

I like the idea better than mine and its cheaper and easier to implement.. Now we need a strong shim.. Any suggestions?

Thanks Guys for your input.. I will rep you both but I can't promise you will be able to keep them.

another idea,

bend the handle bracket up, remove the current structure bracket
Lowes sales some strips of metal and aluminum. they range from 1/16 thick to 1 to 3 inches wide
then attach the strip to the handle with screws and run it along the top of the cover. it will be angled but plenty of room. then attach it to the rear brace. so now the handle brace is attached to the rear bracket and strong enough to still support structure weight.
you could still raise the original bracket to reach the new brace from the handle for extra support if needed

IMO the first idea is better, the thing that will make this easy is that the handle is where it should be, just dont mess with the front part. the rear of the handle is the only part that needs modified. the front will keep everything in check, so nothing will get out of alignment

450

hello all
I am also interested in this tour, but my goal and make a push / pull with my H100, I'm near a retirerla handle if necessary but I was wondering what is the height of this measure if it please you to see if I can not carve out a fan of 120 stroke a dremel for his pass, thank you

That would be 25 mm
