Default experience pci slot fans

Well I wanted to see if a cheap little slot fan would help get my graphics card temp down (so I could overclock it more ). So I bought a Newegg.com - Rosewill RFX-100B 90mm PCI Slot Case Cooler - Retail and the results were not good at all.

Max temps after 10 minutes of ati tool artifact checker with my card @ 729/765 mhz.

Without exhaust fan - 79.5c
Exhaust fan high up - 79.75c
Exhaust fan down low - 80.5c
Exhaust fan bottom of
case below video fan - 81.88c

The fan itself runs really quiet and you can feel air coming out of it from 6 inches away. I'm thinking I need more airflow into the case but I already have 4 x 80mm fans...

Has anyone had any good experience with a slot fan?
