Is it safe for AIO Tubes to be touching GPU metal backplate?

Hello, the tubes from my corsair H100X are slightly touching the metal backplate of my ASUS TUF GAMING RTX 3060Ti, which never goes above 65 degrees celsius while gaming. I want to know if that could possibly damage the tubes or if it's fine and I don't need to worry about it. (The case is a Lian Li Lancool Mesh II Performance and the motherboard is a ASUS PRIME Z590M PLUS if that helps)

In a perfect world you’d prefer they not touch, but I don’t think you’ll be picking up heat from that edge and obviously they are non-conductive. Theoretically the air above the backplate can be very warm and might add some heat into the system, but that won’t change much from the varying degrees of close proximity by moving it slightly this way or that.
