Is scotch tape flammable?

I am using scotch tape on the inside of my Gaming Desktop for a fix to the front ports. By any chance would it burst into flames and take my computer down with it at any given moment?

    Scotch brand packaging tapes are extremely resistant to ignition.  Rather than burn, the reaction is absorb heat and melt.  If anything in the computer is hot enough to melt the tape, let alone ignite it, you already have another and far more serious problem.

    Not whatsoever, you can actually use it as fire extinguisher, fun fact.

    Almost everything is flammable in the right circumstances (hot diamonds placed in liquid oxygen)  In those circumstances though as long as wires are not touching I think you are 100% fine.

    it is flammable, but inside the case should get that hot.  what will happen is the tape will dry out and get brittle

    So while it isn't a flammable product, extreme temperatures will make it difficult for the glue to effectively stick to a surface which is too hot or too cold.
