No problem with leaving the fans off. Hell you could set it to not turn the fans on until 85*C if you wanted to.

a fans lifespan has little to do with if it's spinning or not.

meaning it can run at 100% just as long as it can at 25% , it's an electric fan , anything under 100% it's made to do.

the only thing that will kill off a fan early is running it at 25% and not cleaning it ever. when they run slower they accumulate dust faster

I set my MSI Afterburner to not run my fans until the GPU reaches 60c, then bump them to 40% until 80c. I've never seen my 1070 above 65c, but if by some miracle they hit 80c, it then jumps to 100%. I've only used these settings recently, but it seems fine. I may tweak it come the summer months.

I respectfully disagree. Bearings will wear out faster at 100% than they will at 25%. That's one of the arguments against buying used mining cards.
