Looking for a LAN Board

Postby MickeyLetord on Wed Jun 19, 2013 3:54 pm

Hi Guys,

I'm looking for a lan board for my NZXT Phantom E-ATX machine, can anyone suggest one that;

A) Won't break under the colossal weight (Probably about 15KG)
B) Will actually fit the width of the case (W x H x D): 222 x 540 X 623 mm

Any and all suggestions will be extremely welcome :)

Skateboard + tiedown straps. Jus' sayin.

I used to work with an office/IT relocation company. The boys that used to do the lift and shift used skates (lan boards essentially) that were much smaller then the footprint of the heavy bookcases they were moving. You could easily get away with something small, you just have to make sure you put it under a sensible part of the case :)

I managed it for i43!

Well, it was one of those giant bastard cases with wheels.

By the time I got home they were semicircles.

Im a girl, I have a big enough suitcase and its hot pink to match the whole girly lots of clothes stereotype. Your best bet - or at least it was for me - is to go to markets like Northweald and actual stores. If you give the space dimensions you are needing for your pc I could give you a few links to stuff.

It was from argos, got it in the shop, biggest hard shell one they had was £25/£30 ish. Something similar tk this, can't check the sizes on this one as I haven't got a tape measure or pc to hand :p
