c-shaped portion with upper and lower board attachment portions substantially perpendicular to the side rails and also includes
mounting sections that extend beyond an outer side of each of the board attachment portions respectively, wherein the mounting
sections are configured to couple the board alignment element to the side rail in a snap-fit configuration, and wherein each
computing board is adjacent to the outer side of the upper or lower board attachment portions.
