Well, I've been running my two NVidia FE RTX2080ti cards for over two weeks, so I decided on this holiday weekend it was time to tear my system apart and extend the watercooling to these cards.

Long story short, the screws that were removed from the EKWB GPU cooler terminals are too short to use for the Terminal X bridge between the two cards. SO, I have to demote my system back to single air-cooled GTX1080 FTW. I'll survive. The cards were working well and I expect them to run cooler once I reinstall them.

To clean up my installation, I'm trying to hide the cable that runs to the EK RTX terminal covers. My cards are installed horizontally, so I'll be staring at the backplates, not the plexiglass sides of the cards. I could just dangle the wires in the space below each card, but noticed there is plenty of space between the PC board and the plexiglass to run the thin LED cable. It would make for a very clean install, but I'm concerned that the wire may interfere, or melt, if it comes into contact with hot elements on the PC board.

Soooo, any electronics experts out there, please take a look at the image in the link below and let me know if this could be trouble, or if it will end up being fine to do this.
