    Hm looks like K0.
    I will get measurement of my 836 (old wide rails) and 846 (new narrow ones), that should clear things up

    If we adjust your measuring device it would measure 7 cm (from ear to ear) w/c is about 2.76 inches or 2 and 3/4 inches. I'm 90% sure your wide rail would fit mine. Yours is a 3U while my chassis is 4U so it has a wide space at the top unlike yours w/c almost covers its entire height. Maybe that's the reason those tiny ears doesn't look wide enough on my chassis. Excuse my english if it's not clear.

    I agree, yours seems to be around 7cm so similar to my old rail set hooks. There are only two sets - wide and narrow for those iirc, so it should fit:)

    One last question. Does your wide rail able to be extended fully to be able to service the chassis unobstructed?

    Ah missed that question -
    I think its not as far as the newer railset, but at least outside the rack.
    I would't put it (almost) directly under the roof as I have mine since I cant get to the aft pcie card screws with a screwdriver due to height limitations, but thats my fault not the rail's problem;)

    I think I can live with that. I'll update this thread once I get the item which would take about 3 - 4 months from now since my forwarder's sea route is slow. And lastly I would like to thank Rand for taking the time to measure his rails. :)

    I think that's the correct rail. It looks exactly what I bought a year ago. Regarding the outer rail you should ask the seller. New rails should include the inner and outer part.

    I think its better to buy a set as it is very hard sourcing the other part of that rail separately. Better ask the seller if he sells the other part
