According to Silverstone, "The main function of the RA02 is to aid in securing your SilverStone desktop products to a rack storage, please DO NOT make RA02<br>
as the sole supporting structure for the whole case, you should still use a rackmount tray or sliding rail to help with weight support"<br><br>
Does anyone know exactly which MA shelf I should be using?
As stated the rack ears are just for extra stability. I didn't use them in my rack. I did find a nice 4u rack shelf from middle Atlantic (U4V) that offered good ventilation. Especially for the fans in the back right side of the case. A lot of other shelves didn't provide as much breathing room.

That is a nice RACK. How much did you pay for that ?

My rack was quite a bit less expensive than that rack, plus I got mine used.

What makes them really expensive are all the accessories

Those probably cost about $8500. Easier to find and a lot more retailers than Larry's rack....
