Upgrading NZXT Tempest EVO Fans

I want to upgrade my intake fans on my PC case from X3 120mm 40CFM fans to 80< CFM fans. My question is whether I will notice a difference in my gpu, and cpu temps.
I am mainly trying to get my 470's to drop around 10-15c's, is that possible w/ air cooling?
My Case has 3 intake/3 outtake and does pretty good, but I have not even overclocked my cards and they are getting to hot for comfort. I would like to do water cooling but don't have 400-500$ to spend on "cooling".

I was thinking about getting four of these fans
two would go in the front, one on the side for the gpu, and the other one for the CPU heatsink.
So is it worth the money to upgrade, I don't want to see only a 1-2c drop in temps, so if anyone has any recommendations I am open for advice.

  1. I don't want to change the case, just the case intake fans. right now the fans are rated at 42CFM's. I would like to double that and get fans that are 80+ CFM. The question is whether it will make a noticeable difference in GPU and CPU temps.

    The cooler's for the 470 are nice but are to expensive, I can get 4 fans for just under $30.
  2. I appreciate the advice but I am running two 470's, and I think I would be choking the airflow of the top card if I used those VGA coolers. Not to mention for two of them it would cost $160 bucks.

    I only wanna upgrade the case fans to something better than stock, but from what you're saying going from 40cfms to 80cfm is not going to make a difference in the temps?
