Question Twin Fan Suggestions

I'm thinking about buying a zerus twin turbo fan for a 5.25" bay. I saw that most people reviewing it said to put it in the top bay. Can anyone tell me if it's a good buy and if it'll cool my system?

CPU - 55 degrees at full load
The rest of it - 50 degrees at full load

2.93 Ghz celeron D
Volari V3 128mb graphics card
2x30 GB hd - ATA
300W power supply
512mb RAM

It runs hot enough for me to worry and I thought at $25 it would be an inexpensive way to cool my system. I've got a couple fans in there now but they're pretty pathetic. This Zerus runs at 80CFM

Well, first make sure you're completely maxed out on exhaust fans. They are much more important. It's much easier for a fan to pull air out of the case than to force it into the case.
