Yes Middle Atlantic... well no ..I got cheap and bought MA rack rails! (save a buck!) took 1 1/2 days to get front and back side to side rails algined perfectly ... I should have just bought a "Slim 5". But it's working perfectly .....45U .. I think the rails were $120 delv'd

Oh I gotcha now, the Middle Atlantic racks are nice ... I actually built the dimensions of our equipment cabinet with the installation of a MA rack in mind, built some temporary MDF shelves 'til I bought and installed the rack and the shelves have been in place every since. Saved me $3,500 in the long run!

You did it right, me ... now I'm all MA and anodized black components so $100 for each custom face.. still have to buy trim strips .. probably $150 .. empty spots oh blanks or drawers or .... I don't think this ends!

Those racks can get darn pricey in a hurry but they are unbelievably nice and convenient if done correctly ... I really like the overall look and finish on them also.

I'd show you some pics right now (of the half finished-120 plus cables), but my server PSU took a dump (and the photos are on the server) and it's a 2U case .. so special PSU .. winging it's way from newegg as we/I type!
