Go to solution Solved by wojtepanik,

no problem, it can touch your cooler, use zip tie to mount securly, so it would rub and damage by vibration

So one of my case fans cables is touching my cpu cooler, if i put it on a way to not touch my case cooler it will be touching my case fan and it makes an annoying noice..

As long as it doesn't hit the blades, its fine. Cables are insulated and use plastic which is heat resistant up to over 100C. So they don't burn nor cause shorting. I usually tug fan cables under or between heatsink fins to keep thing tidy.

Cable hitting blades would make noise.  Also mechanical wear would tear it open, causing damage.

 

Also, please don't revive old thread.
