    Looking for rails

    Hi everyone,
    I've acquired 20 Tyan S2891 but am having trouble locating rails (outer) for them.
    The only rails i've found so far have to ship from the US and are horribly overpriced.

    I would appreciate it if anyone knows where I can get them from.

    Err may be missing the obvious, but for what cases?

    Isn't that just the motherboard (mainboard etc)?

    Hi Guys.

    Thanks for the replies. The problem is i cant find any kind of marks to say what the case is. We also have one at work with a Tyan Mobo in. Hoping Tyan used these cases.

    Big +1 for Racksolutions. They're our sole partner for all racking solutions.

    Do you need the rails to slide out or would you be happy with a cheaper fixed option?

    Well. We would "like" the pull out ones.. But we need 20 of them. My budget is 20 per server but i don't think i can bring myself to spend 400 just on rails.

    Ah! Rails are expensive! Very expensive usually. IBM, HP & Dell originals can cost between 60 and 100 per set and even the third party fixed ones from places like RackSolutions cost 70 or more.

    From the parts list (ftp://ftp.tyan.com/FRU_partList/fru_gt20b5350.pdf), you're looking for CRAL-0020.

    This part has been discontinued by Tyan, so you'd need to try and find some compatible rails.
