magnet on back of screen?

Magnets, how do they work?

Unless your monitor is CRT, I doubt anything bad can happen. Of course, you can hold the magnet up to your monitor and see what it does (of course if it does something you should take the magnet away)

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

CRT is cathode Ray tube, super old display technology. It's not used on any modern displays. An LCD monitor is unaffected by magnetism, but you could look up long term effects on electronics if you like. People use magnets as accessories on PCs a lot, so I can't imagine anything bad happening.

CRT monitors (those big tube monitors everyone used to use) use magnets to help project the image on the screen, so an external magnet would definitely cause some problems if the monitor wasn’t shielded. Placing a magnet next to one of those monitors made it look like a kaleidoscope. But LCD and LED monitors (the flat screen monitors we use today) function completely differently, so they are generally not affected by magnets. After all, your speakers use magnets to work and they don’t mess with your monitor, so the magnet is perfectly safe to use.
