Wood would be a good case if EMF was an issue. It's dielectric and absorbs and nullifies it.

But that's not the case in a PC. The highest voltage you have coming out of the backside of a PSU is 12VDC which produces no EMF because it doesn't oscillate...it's steady.

EMF is just the invisible lines of flux coming out of an A/C line. It's why motors run, and power is generated. These hidden lines alternate and make things physically move. But no more dangerous than holding a magnet to your head (a natural magnet might be a bad idea though...might pool iron in your blood). We even walk around our daily lives with alternating radio waves passing through us...radios, cell phones, the sun.

So the hamsters are safe. We don't need PETA on our ass ya know.

So there's no EMF with those wooden PCs? I just heard this EMF stuff when I was looking into wooden PC cases. Never got much proof but such ideas are circulating the internet.


maybe youre thinking RFI (Radio Frequency Interference)? computers can generate a pile of that but its no biggie to us biologicals (unless you have a pacemaker but it would have to be mighty strong RFI), just other electronics such as receivers or sensitive audio stuff.
