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.

I have done what you want to do and it made little to no difference, this case is extremely noisy, and I am considering getting a new case after only owning it for a few months.
