Will it hurt to run the fan at 100% on my card all the time? - Page 2

Any fan works better at its maximum speed, whether it is A/C or D/C. It will cool its motor windings and bearings better at that speed, and last longer. Noise is the only consideration here, unless you have enough fans to become a power consumption issue.
