jeee why not just use a heat gun...

I see the results, but nothing in your case is going to concentrate that much heat on your tubing. The filaments are glowing hot in a hair dryer and its purpose is to create heat were as your pc isn't. I have yet to see someones cpu, gpu, psu, ram, ex. glow red hot, so that pretty much throughs all results out but the curling iron.

I think it would be safe to say if anything in your pc is putting off that kinda heat in a concenrated area you should be concerned.

id say, as others have said, its due to the 1/4'' tubing... but also your cool side is right next to your hot side, and right next to the GPU, if you could route the cool side to the top of the case, drill a hole for it to pass through, then it would be away from all heat sources, or maybe route it up and over your case fna there, and drill a hole under the PSU to bring it through there.

Although Im sure this would only be about as effective as your insulation, so its really up to you, what works for you is what works for you, and if it works, then I have no problem with it.
