Hi all, moving to the other side of the planet and need to ship my 2 pc's .. I'm having the thought that i should remove the gpu's (a GTX980 and a GTX1080), to store them separately. My thinking is that the gpu's are very heavy and already seem to put a fair bit of load on the mobo. During shipping if there is a sudden jolt up or down then it may result in damage .. thoughts on this ?

It's not a bad idea to package them separately, but IMO it's not necessary at all. The cards should be fastened firmly to the case by the screws that held the PCI slot covers in place. Your cards do have those back plates with holes for the screws that I'm talking about, don't they? Take care of shock absorption in the PCs' packaging and all of their inside components will be protected as well. Perhaps some packing foam sheets or packing foam balls inside the boxes.

yes they fit as a standard card. I can see some "sagging" as they sit on the desk .. so if they were to be jolted hard then I think there might be some damage. I will remove them .. I have the original boxes so it's not problem .. i think I have answered my own question :-)

My System


Just lots of extra "popcorn" around each component in a separate box.

In that case, better safe than sorry.
