Moving suggestions with gaming rig.

Moving a few states over and trying to get my PC prepped. I understand it's a good idea to remove the GPU so I'll do that. Was curious about my aio I can remove that to would it be advisable to remove it? Was planning on using a spare Viewsonic box I had to pack it into separate from my monitor box.

 

 

 

My Build:

i9 9900k w/ EK 360 AIO

32GB G.Skill Trident DDR4 3600

EVGA GeForce 3080FTW ULTRA

Gigabyte Z390 Aurous Ultra 

Samsung 850 Ssd

Samsung 860 Ssd

Samsung 980 Nvme 

Fractal Design R6 

Monitor: Viewsonic XG270QG (I have original packaging not worried about this)

What are you going to transport it with? car?

Dunno how bumpy your road is.


Me, here, I'd :
-
remove the AIO as well. (mainly because I don't like the idea of a container filled with liquid being shaken near my components)
- Take off the glass panel and cover it with bubble wrap or something as cushion.
- Cling wrap the rest, or simply cover the open side with cardboard & duct tape.

Haven't heard of an AIO coming loose in shipping. I'd actually give a shot to one of those inflatable bags that inflate in your case and keep everything secured behind the panels until you remove it.

Yeah if you can get that it'll be a nice addition. That thing doesn't exist in my country, unless I'm willing to pay premium money for one.
I'd still remove atleast the AIO & GPU though, just in case.
Not like removing & reinstalling them is a hard thing to do anyway.
Preventing always better than fixing. Especially if it's a thousand dollars thing. XD

Would you leave the cpu in socket? I don't know if I still have the cover.

I would.
If want to be overly paranoid, I'd just use a masking tape to secure it to the board more.
Since masking tape is just about right in terms of stickyness, so it's easy to remove, no residue (as long it's not for months).
If you gonna do it that way, fold over some bit of it & stick it to itself at one side of the tape, so that you have a "non sticky handle" to pull the rest of the tape with later.

If I am going to use that foam thingy & I take off the glass panel as well.
I'd secure the foam thingy using masking tape to the case. So that no matter what that foam gonna stay in place and provide some pressure to my CPU.

Then lay the case flat with CPU facing my car ceiling.
