You could go with a closed loop system, H50 or H70, I'm not a huge fan of these but it would be the best bet, I would stay away from a custom loop or a kit like the rasa, if you shook something loose while transporting it that would = 1 bad day...

You can move a pc with water cooling pretty easily, I used to move my custom water cooled pc all the time and never had one problem.

The best way to do that would be to get the whole water cooling system contained in the case or attached to the case firmly. Then all that you would have to do is just make sure everything is very secure, and sealed (which isn't hard). Then your good to go.

Putting your case in the passenger foot-wells behind the driver and front passenger seat is a good way to secure it, pad it around so it won't budge and try not to hit any pot holes fast, same deal with speed bumps. Slow and smooth is best.

Thanks, guess ill just try it then
But, im getting a HD6970, and then when the 2011 socket comes out im goin to change the cpu as well. how big would the loop have to be to take that, when im oc'ing to the max?

If you are going to water cool the 6970 and the 2011 socket cpu I would recommend a nice 360 radiator, if you just watercool the processor a 240 would be good.


**Edit
This is what I would buy for a cpu and graphics card loop (what I am actually planning on buying for my current pc):

CPU Block (may or may not fit a 2011 socket cpu, to early to tell)
Pump
Pump Top/Res
Radiator
Tubing
Barbs
(Add gpu block for that gpu)

Im not sure on what the temps will be with he socket 2011 but a RX360 kit should be more then enough with a single GPU, CPU combo. granted you get a 2011 compatible CPU block

Also why dont yo get the HD6950 and unlock it, they are identical cards only difference is the bios, thats exactly what i did with my CFX setup, read my sig.
