Can heat damage my headset cord?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have my computer positioned sideways under my desk infront of my legs, and my headset cord sitting on the top of the computer. My computer can get pretty hot when playing games and I noticed the cord will get warm aswell. Could this damage it at all?

Highly doubt it. The only culprit would be thermal expansion/contraction, but with a flexible cord it is very negligible compared to the stress via flexing and stretching. As long as your cable isn't melting, I don't see a problem.

Well, do you have proper cooling for your internal components? that's something to worry about.

Probably not unless the cord is exposed at a point or its melting
