Short version:
2011 went and impulse shopped got an NZXT phantom
October 2011 decided I want to go to a tertiary institute however to go to my institute of choice (SIT) I must catch at-least 2 flights starting in Auckland and ending in Invercargill.
First question how should I go about transporting the full innners of a PC without the case the first time, and then with a case the second time?

Then of cause there is the question of a case, Id like a micro-atx/minitower case ive got this situation

the Graphics card doesn't extend off the motherboard but Im not entirely sure if the Motherboard is small enough for a micro ATX case. (240 across the topx250mm)
Ive been eyeing up

thoughts anyone? :D

If you have a shipping box for the case then you probably can get away with checking it in as luggage (if you are under your baggage limit). Take out the drive and take it with you in carry-on luggage. Also take out the gfx card and anything else that may come loose or break off, and put them separate.

Also look at the option of sending the case and whatever else you feel comfortable being banged about a bit by courier. Especially if you are in danger of having too much luggage.

b0untypure1: thats a tall case, thought you would be looking for a smaller case to travel?

My idea was that id put it into the travel case cause cloths are quite good padding. The problem is there isnt much variety in NZ when it comes to shuttle PCs or the like unless someone can link me to someone who has those m-ATX cases with handles, i think i could get that in as carry on.

thanks jarno ill definitely look into it
