Hi, Prolimatech announced a new product:"the Magnetic Pin" that you have to take a look at:
That is pretty cool. I kind of want some!
magnetic and computer make a not so good combo, what happen u drop that inside your board and damage it?
i don't know, it said that it can be quickly install or remove from the case, video here:
It's fine. The magnetic force is no more than what my Craftsman screwdriver produces and I have put that near boards and HDDs for years. For any piece of a PC to be damaged by a magnet it has to be pretty strong and at that I think only a HDD can be damaged.
I think it was a very nice idea. A simple and silent mounting technique. I was surprised nobody had thought of it earlier.
Guys on TPU linked to some that were made years ago. Just no PR on those.
but I guess it's only now that they use metal and magnets along with the design :)
I'd rather have secure. Movement can still occur.
I still prefer screws though with rubber fan fittings.. I mean, it's not really hard to remove screws..
well i'm impressed with this product. But how much is it ? Should i buy it or still use the screws ? (i don't like the screws)
ok i will buy and try, i will make review when i get it
