VRMs get very hot on GTX460 ( and better GTX4xx&5xx ). The lifespan of a card with VRM cooling could be better even withou OCing. ++ in SLI when heat become an issue with 2 cards.
I've had MSI Cyclone GTX 460 1GB's I've overclocked to 960MHz Core Clock in SLI with 1212mV's (BIOS flashed) with just an 80mm fan to blow air into the VRM's (no heatsink), and they've been fine for over 2 years (GPU's are watercooled).
