Hello,

the SuperMicro website for the 1U chassis 505-203B mentions only the rail kit MCP-290-50404-0N under optional parts. As a private person in Germany it is quite hard to get this model in a shop. Do you know if any other rail kits also fit to this chassis?

Does someone have a picture of this chassis with mounted rails?
Are the rails for this 1U chassis only mounted to the mounting brackets (the brackets on the front left/right corners) and not additionally to the side of the chassis like it is done for bigger chassis (2U,3U,4U,5U)?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Thomas

Looking at the pictures on the supermicro website, it looks like biggest issue you would have using other rail kits is the screw locations. You can probably get something like a "L" bracket rack kit like this, but please note even though it says 1U, it is more like 1U and a little more from the looks of it, so it seems it might cause you to lose part of the rack U above it as well.

Just curios: why would you need rails for a 10" deep chassis with all connectors except AC on the front?
Ther reason these rails are so scarce is probably because noone is using them - just a guess.
