Well, nothing fancy here :D

 

Same storage for VGA and MB, just using bigger boxes.

You wont be satisfied with these products.

They are cheap , but very low quality.

 

It would be better to consider other options.

 

Look for hard plastic cpu trays and ram trays with more height to fit ram modules with heatsinks

 

Any suggestions?

 

I didn't know where to look so I had a quick look on ebay and couldn't see much difference between the options available.

Look at Ney's link with cpu trays.

That's the type you want to buy (hard plastic)

 

Ram trays

Most of them are cheap China products (on ebay).

 

Look for an add , with manufacturers trays , from Samsung or Hynix.

They came with 25 slots usually

This is a commercial advertisment (sorry for this hwbot).

But have a look , to see what kind of ram tray to look for.

I use IKEA Alex cabinets, the smaller ones designed for use with desks. I eventually plan on picking up some of the hard plastic trays to store my CPUs, and build some sort of stackable system to have multiple motherboards in the lower drawers:

Would something like that be ok? (obviously not quite as space efficient!)

 

Only hard plastic trays seem to come from the US and so delivery is a lot more than the cost of the actual tray which is just silly!

I use original motherboard boxes, or boxes from another mobo, sometimes stacked and padded 2 or 3 motherboards in the same box.

For VGA either original boxes or for bare cards esd bags, then bubble-wrap and stacked in larger boxes.

For CPUs - some in original plastic holders, some (the s.A) stacked inside a cardbord boxes, some in hard plastic trays (blue ones).

For RAM - most are in plastic trays, others in esd bags.
