standing it up? or laying it down? I guess I worry about a good bump in the road causing the CPU fan to put awkward stress on the mother board.

I always lay them down if the CPU cooler is large. If it's stock or a small aftermarket one, you will be fine.

Haha nope not jumping the pond sorry. But my wife and I plan to be in england for the olympics. If not for the olympics than just to be in england! Cool I'll make sure to lay it down and keep it pretty level for the trip! Thanks for the advice.

If you want to be extra cautious, you could pack it in a box with some bubble wrap, just in case there should be any real bumps in the road that may jostle it. In my opinion, you can never be too careful. I hope that this helps.

Well I'm going to be up in the art gallery area (park ave., monroe, ect) but I'm returning to finish my degree at RIT. And New York is an improvement over Indiana.
