Carry on

Update: It passed. They only said “it’s a strange machine” and passed it without a problem!

Hello I have a sapphire nitro+ rx 570 and I am planning to take it in carry on luggage. I am currently in Bulgaria and going back to the USA. Any concerns?

Why would you take that in carryon?


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

Standart procedure would to put it in an anti-static bag and wrap it with some bubblewrap or the likes. You should be safe then.

It’s in its original packaging, is that fine?

Cause I don’t have any space left on my checked in bags

Aslong as it's in an anti-static bag and doesn't get banged around it won't break.

If I didn’t have an anti static bag for the gpu would it be ok at the height airplanes fly at?

Well, there's a chance they'll deny it through security.

The height has nothing to do with it. The issue with no anti-static bag is that if the GPU is in a carryon without protection it could mean that electrostatic build-up could fry it.

Hope it survives (without anti static bag)! For more information the card is in its original packaging and inside sytoroform packaging.
