I have done some research on using magnets in a PC build and what I have read is that they can only effect an HDD and it would take a very powerful magnet to do so. I want to be safe before I start my build though. Is it safe for the other computer parts if I use magnetic tape in my build? Thank you.

HDD's would take a very powerful magnet to get to the point where you worry about it. I don't know much about magnetic tape but I'm sure it's EMF it generates probably isn't going to be very strong. I can't speak for the life of the product if you're always going to have magnetic tape ON the drive, but just having it near/around/in the case, shouldn't be a problem.
