Fill it up?
On the inside?

No.

Toilet paper would be worse than nothing. It WILL leave lint and fibers behind. And it will NOT stabilize anything.
Movement would happen on a millimeter scale. You can't pack anything tight enough to prevent movement on that scale.

How are you moving this? PCs are shipped all over the world, every day, with no magic packing inside the case.

Unless you are riding on rocks the whole trip, you dont need any extra packaging.
Make sure it doesnt fall ofcourse.
How big are the components inside?
If it is light or has small components inside of it you dont need any extra safe packaging,if not any actually.
Send a pic of the system.
Post it on imgur,copy/paste the link here so we can see how you packed it.
