I don't know if this is of any use, but, once, years ago, I made the horrible mistake of putting a running hard drive upside-down on top of a running power supply while having the rig running out of the case. As a result of this, the drive got a bunch of sector errors. I still have it, it spins up fine, but I don't think it's trustworthy. I was darn lucky that the whole reason I was running the rig was to secure erase that drive. Well, it looks like I more-or-less succeeded in doing that!

Note, however, the differences between the scenarios. This hard drive of mine was put right smack on top of a power supply.
