    I have no particular knowledge about watercooling, however when I got a Zalman CPU cooler which (at the time) was considered to be very heavy the advice was to not move the machine with the cooler attached - it would stress and strain the bolts and fittings between the cooler and the motherboard. The same would be true with any heavy device attached in the case, so it would depend on how heavy the particular components are and how well attached they are, as well as how much you will be moving it.

    If moving is top priority, you may be best to consider a mATX case such as the Antec Aria.
