Magnetic Dust Filter?

Having completed this build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/ejgodwin/saved/4l1t

I added a case fan behind the motherboard, which Silverstone recommends to be an intake. Now I need a dust filter, and found this: http://www.amazon.com/Silverstone-Tek-FF122-Filter-Cooling/dp/B006RD0U54/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1397658463&sr=8-2&keywords=case+fan+filter .

My question is, the Silverstone case has slots for the hard drives in the same place (behind the mobo), so I'm a little cautious about putting a magnetically-attached dust filter in close proximity. Is it ok, or should I go with the inconvenience of a mounted one?

a magnetic dust filter shouldn't have any effect on the hdd and the slots for the hdd is most likly a ssd mount not a hdd mount.

the magnets probably arent even strong enough to do damage.

Yes it's an ssd slot, which of course is the type of drive I installed.
