I have 2 front 8cm case fan fittings but if I fit one or both the centre of fans will be approximately 1.5 inches from the end of and 1 inch under the hard drive. Can the electrical field on fans damage the drive?.

Many thanks.

i have not experienced any problems


found it made the system more stable as the drives operate at a lower temperature.
