If you replace a cpu will you lose your data on your hard drives?

I'm replacing a CPU in an old Gateway server and want to know if I will lose my data on the hard drive. It has a LSI Logic 1020/1030 Ultra320 SCSI controller.

If it's just the CPU, there will be no data loss.  If you are replacing the motherboard amd CPU with something else, you could run into issues there.  Simple CPU replacement will present no data loss.

The data in drive will be lost if you format the drive, delete it, or hard drive failure, etc. Basically, change system will not affect the data, but the OS could be affected as noted above.
