Default Re: PC case - Hard drive rails

There used to be a "standard" - the ones that IBM used for its drives in the IBM AT and XT cases - however at this point with all the clones and ATXs they tend to not be compatible with each other. Correct that within a specific brand or OEM they can be compatible but not always, but likely you'll need to search for the brand or OEM with the rail.

I have an X-Blade case that was missing rails and goes in the side like yours, I ended up 3D printing a few. Be warned however, PLA will soften if you let your hard drives heat up to 60C ... may need to use ABS or some other plastic.
