Bare Cold Cathodes Too Hot?

I removed the plastic tubing from my logisys cold cathodes and used the bare glass tube on the inside to light the side vents on my Raven Rv01...

How hot do bare cold cathodes get? Hot enough to melt the ABS plastic screw holes inside the vent?

The cold cathode is not attached to anything, the space was small enough for me to just set it in there and run the cables out through the mesh. It is, however, in contact with the plastic side vent.

They are within a larger plastic case because yes.. they get VERY hot (and brittle). Why exactly have you removed them from their plastic casing?
