I think people are getting confused cause some are assuming theres at least one fan without a radiator, and others are not.

So, to answer the original question, my opinion....
ASSUMING YOU FILL EVERY FAN MOUNT WITH A RADIATOR:
1. If you have all radiators set to exhaust: you create negative air pressure inside your case, causing it to suck in air and dust through the cracks. Filters wont help here.
2. If you have all radiators set to intake: not positive on this but pretty sure you'll create back pressure for the fans, reducing efficiency.
3. If you have proper air flow: your exhaust radiators will have hot air passing over them. You might still get lower temps if the hot air being exhausted is STILL lower than the water temperature, but benefits likely wont justify the cost.

Because dust is as much of a problem as heat. Less dust means less heat will build up in the rest of the components. If you don't have dust filters, I hope you don't mind cleaning your case out often.

I get a VERY thin layer in my case, but nothing builds up beyond that - even after 5 years without going in and blowing it out. I bring them up, because they are a godsend.
