Considering that your Thermaltake Element G case already has excellent cooling, one of those would be a waste of money. They are good for cases with poor airflow.

Yea, they do a decent job of exhausting air out the back of a computer. They are also handy at removing excess heat generated by some video cards.

i think they mainly depend on rpm, 1000 is not bad, and if there's two together it should be good think

Yea you won't need one of these PCI coolers with your case.

With case cooling it's a good idea to create a negative pressure inside the case by using more exhaust fans than intake fans and your case seems to do that according to the specs.

What has not been said is they are auditory obnoxious. They are attached to the pci plate horizontally and vibrate like a Son o' Bi***. They do move some air but the noise trade off is one you have to take in to consideration.

And they're centrifugal fans. They need high rpm's to move a reasonable amount of air so they're usually loud in general.
