Good luck.

I've e-mailed them a few times already (support, sales, etc) inquiring
about getting drive rails for a VA Research (early name of VA Linux
Systems) box I have.... never even a response.

Since they can gouge you on the custom PCI risers... maybe you'll get
a response....

Anyone out there have drive rails for VA Research boxes (they are
grey plastic with a metal 'spring' locking tab at the front of the
rail.  No part #s on the rails :-(.  They are adjustable, and have
markings for adjustment as such:


They are not standard AT size, rails for an Enlight AT case don't
fit, nor do rails for LEO (FIC) cases.... the case has 3 5.25" bays
but I only have rails for one bay :-(... and it's a really well made
case.  Anyone know who made the cases ????
