  1. It is only the sound level it will not affect the GPU life. Actually cooler might mean longer life.
  2. It might wear down the fan quicker, but if it's at 90% already, hey what is 10% more.

    what the other have said, it will only increase the noise not the life of the card


    out of curiosity, why is it set so high?

    When was the last time you cleaned the fan and the heat sink on the card? It is amazing how dust and lint affects the temperature of the card.

    Here Here. I have seen some that had a wool blanket laying over the front of the heatsink. Especially if you sit your case on the floor. I will forever keep it on top of a desk.
