Are Shrouds Really Worth it?

I think it also provides more even cooling, instead of directly under the fanblades, it pushes/pulls air throught the radiator all over it, providing more effective cooling.

Edit: If you can feel air behind the fan (where the air should be flowing "into" the fan) than another fan on the opposite side of the heatercore will help immensely. That will spread the pressure between the two fans, and help force the air to flow through the rad.
