Default Pc fan

Hello, I wanted to know just in case if I left my pc on all night and my CPU fan gets caught in a wire- will my pc shut off without any harm?

Ideally, it should. This begs the question. How would a wire get caught in the CPU fan?

True, just wondering since the wires should not be moving inside, it's the power wire and its thick so it shouldn't move

Most modern machines have a thermal protection that will shut down the system if it gets too hot.
