Leave case fan wires alone or not?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My case fan wires on my 200mm and 120mm are hanging loose inside my computer case. Though I've had them in operation for 2 weeks without any problems I'm wonder if the wires could get caught by one of the fans some day. I've moved my computer around I've even shook my computer and it's still alright.
The wires are short and quite rigid, the air flow of the case doesn't seem to disturb them.

Am I alright as is? If not I'm thinking of taping them in place which may more or less make things look uglier but at least I can feel safe about the wires not getting caught.

As long as they have no slack, and they aren't passing directly in front of a fan, then you should be fine.
