Default Re: Oops...

Actually, it is a big risk. The wires getting clipped is not a concern, however, if the CPU fan stops, and there's no alarm (or no one hears the alarm in time) then the CPU will overheat and might pop or fry (which will completely destroy the internals of the processor). This is an even bigger risk if you have a P4 in there - instead of a lower model Intel or any AMD. Try to stuff the IDE and power cables somewhere or find something to tie them down/anchor them.
