What Foam should I use for Packing a PC

Go to solution Solved by Zagna,

Something like Instapak Quick RT?

Open case, drop one in, close case and wait for it to expand, repeat if not full enough.

What form should I use to pack my pc as a carry-on? I am planning to move soon, but I don't know what form or type to use. I will be putting the pc in a regular carry on bag.

Pls provide links if possible.

styrofoam? thats what pretty much all computers ship in

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

do you have the box the case came in, with the foam that was used?

 

If so, thats the best option.  Just fill the internals with peanuts, or make sure that everything is secure.  Def. remove the GPU.

If you are gonna ship a pc with a dedicated graphics card. Take out the graphics card and ship it separately because I heard horror stories where PCI slots break off when people shipped off their pc.

Instapak makes a quick foam solution that I've seen used for the internals of a PC.
