No, not really. Though I would assume it would get pretty noisy for the GPU fan.

I'm sure it might limit their lifespan from 100years to 50 years (j/k!) so yeah I don't think it will hurt at all. You can always get a new HSF or GPU cooler if they do go out on ya.

If they go out you can get an RMA and if your lucky you might get a better gpu but they will last a while
