Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

I have moved from ireland to england and i dont know how to get my PC over here. I have a new case, cooler over here, i just dont know how to get the rest of the parts here safely? Do i take them in pieces? If so how do i package them? Im just at a loss, can anyone help? I would be flying it over to be clear on transport.

Put it in a car and drive it over?

Put it in a suitcase, pay the fee for extra luggage, ship over in the plane when you go.

What about the baggage handler throwing it around ect?

Use a courier like DHL, FEDEX, TNT, UPS etc., to ship the remaining components to you in England.

 

Which components do you still need to ship? Perhaps it is easier to just take them with you on a plane/ferry?

I just need to take the gpu, motherboard, ram,cpu, power supply and ssd. Ive got new case here and cpu cooler

Maybe bubble wrap and put it in overhead cabinbag in the plane?

You could take a flight from Ireland to England.

 

- Make a back up of all the data on the SSD.

- Put the graphics card in an anti-static bag.

- Put the motherboard in an anti-static bag.

- Take a suitcase, fill it with your PC components and surround them with your clothes. Your clothes will serve as soft "padding" for your components, securing them in place and absorbing any potential shocks.

You might also consider taking your motherboard and your graphics card (both in an anti-static bag) in your hand luggage.

Would i leave the ram in the motherboard?

No, I would definitely remove the RAM. Those RAM stick protrude too much and - although they might seem to be fixed quite well - a RAM slot is still a fragile component of the motherboard.

On the other hand, I recommend to leave the CPU in it's socket. Those pins can be bend very easily. So the socket is a safe place to transport your processor.

 

Both RAM and CPU don't require an anti-static bag.

Can I assume that you don't have the original box of your GPU and/or motherboard anymore?

Yeh its nothing new, just havnt needed to upgrade just yet.

Since you haven’t got the original boxes anymore, you’ll probably also won’t have the original anti-static bags anymore.

 

In that case you can look for anti-static bags on eBay (or Amazon). They are actually surprisingly cheap.

The larger bags, the ones that fit your GPU and MOBO, can be bought per piece from eBay.
