Default Re: Screwing MOBO to case

Same as the people above me...I've worked on tons of computers/built a few...all with magnetic screwdrivers. I've touched the edges of the mobo (even the components...) with the screwdriver...have yet to see anything not work.

Same. I use magnetic ones. So much easier to fit screws in tight places that your fingers can't reach.
i as well use magnetic screw drivers, it is so much more easy.

It's like another common misconception. Magnets and hdd's, to actually erase the data on an hdd until it was unreadable would take a VERY POWERFUL magnet. A medium powered magnet could do some damage to the hdd files but couldn't completely corrupt them.
