Noctua DH14. Can the bottom heat pipe melt/damage fan cable?
I know this is probably a stupid question
but I installed the Noctua DH14 and my video cards, etc. The center fan power cable ended up on the wrong side where the graphics card is and it's a real pain in the ass to remove the graphics card with the Noctua installed. I just routed the cable around the bottom of the Noctua to plug into the Cpu fan header and it's touching the bottom heat pipes. Just wondering if this is OK? Can the pipes get hot enough to damage/melt the cable? Just paranoid

If the pipes got hot enough to melt the wire, you would have more problems than just that. So yes, it'll be fine.
