I'm just here to see a smashed computer in a suitcase at this point.. that's a horrendously bad idea...

That's assuming you even make it onto the plane, could 100% see you getting pulled off to explain that it isn't a bomb and them telling you they don't care it's not flying.

I've heard taking a laptop on a plane works better, I've heard it from a friend.

Not only that, some airports' luggage transport systems still have places of "vertical discrepancies" where one conveyor may drop the suitcases from 2-3 ft onto the next one.

This is just my $0.02, OP decides if he's braving it.

My pc only goes carry on and i normally hide it in a shopping bag from the airport so I can carry a rucksack with my laptop, power tool batteries, 18650 cells and so on putting anything like a pc in checked luggage unless broken down and individually packed in a hard case is asking for disaster don't do it, I can promise with certainty it will be wrecked.

Hi ThaiTaffy
I spend 95% of my life abroad, so if I reduce to a laptop, the nomad lifestyle I have, then I'd never have a real PC in my life.

It's not fair to be using a computer for 6 hours everyday, but have it so weak that can operate on batteries.

I rather have it crushed in an airplane, rather than not having it at all.

Sorry, I think all laptops fall into toy category. Anything unplugged with batteries is a toy. Life is short so rebel.

I don't think you quite understood, I carry both a tower and a laptop both could fit in one backpack but sadly my veto pro pack has a large central divider so I'm unable to fit the tower in. I hide the tower in a airport duty free bag so it's not weighed and can be taken as carry on.

Man toys are the best.

Oh cute laptop.

Why don't you just carry the computer parts and leave the chassis behind? I put cpu, ram and ssd in backpack and carry on. I have an open case style, so basically instead of tower I have some aluminium rods that everything attaches to (same rods they use to make shopping windows or gym closets)
My chassis is 2 meters of aluminium, cut down into a frame to fit the mobo. It weights 1kg


a) overkill

b) heavy

c) price?
Overkill : yeah, but quieter, needs less fan
B : just 1.49 kg
C : same as a triple rad, just 2$ more. Shop called me and thanked me for the purchase, apparently no one with a sane mind buys this stuff. But I'm very happy, when girls ask me who do you love the most? I say my radiator.

My rad, my obelisk.

Whole thing weighs less than 5kg and I carry powertools and other heavy items in my check in, so keeping it all together and not stripping it down every time seems the better option.

absolutely not here! This is an airflow optimized fan and doesn't even fit on a 140mm rad
for rad, you must go for a fan with less blades and larger gap between blades. as Jay2Cents said "you should be able to stick your finger through it, not in a dirty sense"
watch @5:30

Not sure where to put this but here's a review of the Phantek T30.

Hi,
This is wrong. Rad must not be at lower altitude than pump.

OP you should root for underdog sometime. Brand recognition does not mitigate performance tiers. Who cares which won at lower rpm, you can get a decent scythe to perform the same, however at mid to high rpm, you will catch wind of its mid tier quality.

I know in a generic loop, rad must not be lower to avoid bubbles in the pump. however my pump is floating inside the res. So having the rad at lower altitude won't send air into the pump.

Apart from not taking space on the desk, cooler ambient air stays near the floor. (cold air is more dense and thus heavier)

If it's too big to fit in a computer case why not go with a vehicle radiator, they make some really nice cheap rads for dirtbikes and you can oversize the fans and run them slower and because they're designed to cool engines they're far better performers than those tiny things you get for inside pc cases.

I love this idea, may be having big enough rad, we won't need fan anymore.
I've being peeking through a bulldozer and I saw stacks of rads. It's cooling heaven.
However I need to travel with my rad - and vehicle radiators are made of aluminum?

When I'm fully settled, I will probably do this:
