Proximity of monitor to computer
This may sound a dumb question, but can the distance a monitor is from the computer affect the computer in any way?
What I'm getting at is what sort of interference is coming out of the monitor that could maybe corrupt data on the hard drive? Is there any sort of magnetic radiation from the monitor?
How much outside magnetic radiation would it take to corrupt a hard drive would be interesting to know too!
Just curious really!
In honesty computers are designed to be adjacent monitors, so I would not worry about that. It is actually very hard to corrupt hard drive data with an external magnetic field, when the drive is inside a computer. The magnetic field required is huge. I have seen computers with huge bass speakers on top of them. With no problems. You would be quicker upsetting a drive with a bad PSU.
All the best, Justy.
Keep in mind, if your case is open while your fiddlin' with components and the monitor is facing the case, you could get some interference. The steel used in good cases is coated with Zinc or something to repel electromagnetic(EM)bursts....In other words,when the bomb hits..your fried...but,your computer's OK !!
Wow, I'd be terrified of putting any speaker on top of my computer!! I'm funny like that!!
Thanks for your reassurance on this though!
