CPU water blocks

hey guys, i have a little question about cpu or gpu water blocks. by the way, i searched the forum but i found no topics about this.

you see, im about to buy a water cooling system for my pc, but i have a thing going around in my head. Does the copper of the water block affect, or decrease, or damage the processor?

i mean, as far as i know, copper is an excellent condutive and magnetic material, and due to that the processors work with electricity flowing through nanotransistors, which certainly creates a magnetic field ... and this could be affected by a nearby conductive copper plate. i know that there is a thermal grease between the interface, but magnetic fields are not diminished by that ...

 

any info you can give me will be very appreciated. and by the way, my apologies about my awful english x)

 

Greetings. 

Sebastian

uhm, i see

well, that was a minor concern, because i've seen some gold-plated copper water blocks, or with some kinds of covering. anyway, now i remember that the stock air cooler works with rotating copper pieces as well. so it's basically the same magnetic field near the processor

 

thanks for you answer, im gonna save enough for a ProWater 850i kit i saw here in Chile :D
