I can vouch for BFG 6800 Ultra OC PCI-E, so far I haven't had one issue yet on the fan, nor did I have a problem with my BFG 6800GT OC AGP in my previous setup.

I think what it boils down to is how much dust and grime is let into the pc to clog up the bearings. Always a good idea to blow out a pc once in a while.
