    Hey everyone :D
    I just got a new apartment (brooklyn baby!), and I just happened to finish my new rig. It's watercooled and has a lot of copper weighing down the motherboard as well as two separate loops. Between the copper and the water the motherboard is supporting a lot of weight.
    How should I pack it so that it will survive the trip (around 40 miles).?
    Is there something I can pack it in to absorb most of the shock?

    just lay it on its back and put it next to you in the vehicle. Maybe wrap it oin a T shirt to avoid any scratches against seatbelts and such.

    Ive traveled from around Toledo to Indy (about 4 hours drivetime) a bunch of times. Never had an issue.

    The roads in NYC are very bad. There are ditches everywhere. An edible arrangements I bought fell apart on the car ride home :/

    well I wouldnt ship it in the back of the truck TBH. I would rather , especially oin crappy roads, to be able to keep a hand on it.

    Just my take, other than that, disassembly is the best option.
