    Also are you saying it's the first time you see a link to the manufacturers' site at the end of the review?

    Sheesh.

    Don't be worried. You can stick a pretty big magnet (eg one of those ones for magnetising screwdriver bits) right next to a harddrive with no ill effects at all. As Jipa says, the magnets in your average harddrive are damn strong and are only an inch or so from the platters.

    tl;dr Don't worry about magnets near hardrives.

    Ever since been bitten by a radioactive magnet my friends won't let me build their PC's for them anymore...

    Its lonely being Magneto Man, I seem to attract the wrong sort of people. Me and the wife ( Iron Woman ) are poles apart, the attraction has gone. There's no positive side to anything anymore.....sigh.

    I think he means the external HDD bay...right next to the roof panel.

    But I agree it's safe.
    Ummm, magnetic motorcycle tank bags have been known to wipe* bank cards... then again their magnets are pretty strong, and the wallet is moving about right on top of it :D

    *no, not wipe completely, but sufficiently so that the average ATM doesn't accept it anymore.

    I own the R3 and I've seen the H2 at work. So yes I can compare the two.

    what about swapping the fans out for some air penetrators? surely that would make a difference, then again didnt FD release the R3 after 1 or 2 criticism's were thrown its way in regards the R2, particularly in the cooling department?

    I really thought they were moving forward when phantom cam out. What a disappointment. Kind of weak for NZXT.
