Is a 3 or 4 degree temperature drop by the exhaust fans a great deal!!!!

My Basic specs are:
AMD FX 8350 4.0 Ghz
Asus Geforce GTX 760 2GB
8 GB 1600Mhz ram
500 GB HDD
CoolerMaster C+P 250
CoolerMaster GX2 650w


i recently brought the grpahics card(asus gtx 760 2gb).while playing games at ultra,the pc tends to become hot(avg. temps are 75-85).there is only one intake fan at the front.so i am deciding to buy an exhaust fan and i found out one.

While going through the reviews,being said the reviews were mostly positive,they say there has been a 4-5 degree celsius drop in temps.

NOW IS THIS GREAT OR NOT.ALSO IS THIS ENOUGH FOR MY PC COOLING(REMOVING HOT AIR).PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!

More about degree temperature drop exhaust fans great deal
  1. Check your CPU, GPU and VRM temps with RealTemp or similar program.
  2. A fan doesn't cool the computer as such, it moves air.
    How far the temperature will drop inside your computer depends on the outside air temp, the temp inside the computer and how much air you are moving.
    Installing an exhaust fan in your case at the rear could help a lot with temperatures.

    The fan you have linked is PWM controlled, with a 4 pin connector.
    To use this, you need a 4 pin header on your motherboard like the CPU fan header, but there often isn't one for system fans.
    For a case fan you just want a fixed speed fan with a 3 pin connector.
    You can then connect this 3 pin to a 3 pin header on your motherboard if there is a spare one, or to a molex to 3 pin adapter which connects to your power supply molex connector.

    You should probably consider a better fan with higher static pressure also.
