D5 pump has a strong magnet, safe near a HDD cage?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello, first thread on these forums for me. I'm in the process of building my first water cooling loop. :-)

I've bought a 5.25" bay reservoir with a D5 pump, which I was planning to position above my HDD case. However, I noticed that the pump is held together by a powerful magnet. Could this create problems with my HDDs? Has anybody had any problems positioning a D5 pump close to a HDD?

Something else, where should the water flow towards first, the block or rad? I was thinking the block, then the rad.

Thanks!

Hello,

I haven't heard of a problem like that with the magnets, but I would position the HDD as far away as possible from the magnets (of course). My worst fear is that it could wipe data of the HDD.

For the order of watercooling, in theory it doesn't matter. Thought, that order of block->rad is considered the best to provide cool water to your pump, for safety reasons of the pump.

I'm not sure the magnet will effect a hard drive.

As for the loop order, it doesn't matter at all, as long as the pump is straight after the res, so it never runs dry, you are golden. thumb.gif

Hard drives contain electric motors with magnets in them, just like the magnets in the motor of the water pump. If any magnets were going to hurt them HDD's would never work.

Unless you have a lab grade degausser in your PC for some reason there is nothing to worry about.

The magnets that cycle the arm in a harddrive are many times more powerful then the magnets in a D5.

You will be fine!
