I have an Antec Solo case, which has a spare 5.25" drive bay.

I want to put a 3.5" hard drive into the 5.25" bay, so I bought a 3.5" to 5.25" adapter.

But, the adapter does not come with drive rails, and I do not have any spare for the case.

So, I need a pair of drive rails for a 5.25" drive.

Are drive rails a standardised part that will work in all atx cases? Or, do I need to buy one specifically for my case model?

You should be able to whip into DSE or your local PC shop and get a standard set of 5.25 - 3.5 drive rails and they'll work fine.

A 5.25 drive bay is pretty standard to any case that advertises it has one.

Yep, thats what i thought too.

But, this google finds nothing...

and nothing on pricespy either.

I found overseas sites selling these, but none in nz.

Upon reading your post again ... are you talking about the screwless rails that lock into the case? If so I'd call the place you got the Antec case from and see if they have spares.
