Default Curious about what you think of these fans

Hey i was at tigerdirect and was looking at these case fans. I had never really heard of these before and was seeing if they actually work/make a significant difference of say a 120mm or a 80mm fan.

of this 5.25'' Bay drive

The reason I ask is because my tower only has 2 80mm Fan slots and my CPU is running at like 61oC when I run prime95 and would like to lower the temp a little bit. For lowering the temp I was gonna get some artic silver 5 paste and was looking for recommendations for a new heatsink/fan it's a AMD 3700+ 754 socket.

Thanks in advance

make sure you have a high cfm- 120mm fan in the back of your case. put another exhaust fan in the top of your case (maybe 2) and another intake across from your mobo on the left side of the case. arctic silver will defintely help alot combined with adequate air flow.

those linked products couldn't hurt, but it will be better to do what i mentioned first...it'll be fairly easy and cheap. then if that's not enough, look in to the drive bay fans and such
