I just got a new gpu an RX 590 and I've been able to keep the temperature down about 20C by increasing the RPM to temperature by about 300 - 600 RPM higher than default Wattman settings If I keep it like this will it wear out the fan faster?

(I enjoy fan sounds actually so I do not care if I hear the fans)

Probably, yes, but most fans last for tens of thousands of hours continuously. Your whole GPU would probably die before the fans would, and lowering the temperature of the GPU will lengthen its life more than it would shorten the fans' lives.
