Magnetic screwdrivers and CPU

Hi,

Would a magnetic screwdriver damage the CPU if used for installation?

I used one to remove excess thermal paste from the CPU, would this damage the processor?

Also, about storage, processors that are stored near speaker magnets and such at retailers, would the CPU be damaged in anyway?

Thanks.

Also, an unrelated question, my benchmarks never actually result the same as the reviews ones and online professional tests. The results are close but never the same, is this normal?

Re: Magnetic screwdrivers and CPU

Magnetism should not affect the processor.

The results of the benchmarks are expected since the reviewers commonly use different testing conditions.
