I have checked a fully set up computer on an airplane before, lol.
I just used the original box, and packed the inside of the computer with t-shirts.

but I'm crazy so...

^ This is the best solution IMO. But removing PCI cards could be good...


And this would better than T-Shirts to fill the case...

BTW where do you go in Europe ?

I've done that before, everything went fine, one of the hdd's had broken the screwless mounts but hadn't moved enough to break anything.

Also had a case shipped to me in the original box with nothing protecting the inside, arrived with both hdd's flopping around in the case, Had it not been for horrible cable management I'm sure they would have done a lot of damage.

Packing foam and bubble wrap can and most likely will cause a lot of static so I really suggest against that. News paper is ok but still not ideal or as safe as removing the heavier components.

Shove it all down in a box!

No, but I would take apart everything and put in a separate box... But thats just me.

Take the GPU and CPU heatsink off of the motherboard and pack those separately. I would recommend doing that with the hard drive as well, just to make sure that doesn't receive any shock. The case with just the PSU and motherboard in it should be fine, as well as everything is screwed in and secure.

Watch out for memory coolers, I made the mistake of shipping a custom built computer to a friend with it still in there, and USPS bashed it around so much that it fell off and knocked a few cables loose at the bottom.

I had to walk my friend through the steps on how to reconnect everything

Hmm I am really considering doing it, packing my GPUs in my luggage and the Tower in a box and checking it with me, i might avoid the taxes and all that hassle.

bump on this thread. I'm upgrading/reworking my PC for college and it is going to be moved basically across Canada every 4ish months. I'm wondering what my best bet for upgrading is. Should I build a micro atx computer? Should I get a closed loop water cooler like the H60 so there is less of a chance of the heatsink falling off? I bet if I did something like the NZXT Vulcan I could just bring the damn thing on the airplane with me.

I would use it as an excuse to build another rig.
