This item replaces a copper base dynatron cooler and lowered the CPU2 temp 4c. Due to the better performance, I am replacing the other copper cooler on CPU1
This review is from: Athena Power RM-SLIDER1U20 20" IPC Rack Mount Slider Rail for 1U
Pros: They Work
Cons: I would not mount 55lbs on these rails. My opinion puts a safe limit more like 40-45.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Athena Power RM-SLIDER1U26 26" IPC Rack Mount Slider Rail for 1U
Pros: They work.
Cons: Very lite weight units. Specs up to 55lbs. I would be very cautious if I were mounting anywhere near that weight if it was to be left extended for any length of time. Based on stability with a 35lb 2u case, I would call 40-45 lbs a safe max load.
Other Thoughts: They are lite weight, non-bearing units. With the correct load range of around 35 lbs they are not too bad. I would not trust them with anything much heavier.READ FULL REVIEW
