Additional 120mm exhaust fan to TOP case (Silverstone RV01) makes a difference? Opinions? Pics.

Hi.

Please look at my signature pictures of my computer, I have atleast 8 pictures there (the pictures showing the Noctua NHD14 CPU cooler are most recent; H70 is old)

This is my case, Silverstone Raven 01. A regular case, except the mobo is tilted 90 degrees for heat convection and only has 3 fans (2 intake, 1 exhaust):

I upgraded my case fans, 2 of them (both intake fans) to the "Silverstone AP181 - air penetrators"
They are suppose to be very good fans as seen here:

And they were very heavy, sturdy, and expensive:

I did "upgrade" the fan on the top, exhaust from the stock Silverstone to the Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15, which are very popular here:

After downloading EVGA precision X, and using the automatic fan control, my (2) GTX570's in SLI never exceed 70°C under full load in games like BF3.

My CPU stock voltage + clocks hovers around 30's Idle, while 50'ish load.

I was just wondering do you guys think if I ordered a somewhat LOUD fan, but very powerful, like the Scythe ULTRA KAZE, would I notice substantial differences?

It's suppose to be as loud as a vacuum

I just want to make sure I have something powerful enough to SUCK all the hot air out of the case since I have 2 intakes but only 1 exhaust, and my 2 intakes are very powerful and I worry about the powerful-ness of the Gentle Typhoon AP-15, I know they have good static pressure for CPU cooling but not sure if they are made to exhaust hot air; since for example, the AP181 Silverstones I have as intakes, as seen in the video, are only MADE for INTAKING.

Thank you so very much.

You dont appear to have a heat issue. Your temps are pretty good so I wouldn't upgrade to that fan. At 2000RPM its no better than the AP15 but a lot louder. At 3800RMP it is better but a hell of a lot louder.
