It really sucks the warm air out of the PC casing and exhaust it at the back. The moment I run the fan, the casing temperature drops few deg C (typically around 5 deg C) and I can feel the blows of hot airs exiting through the rear. It runs with very minimal noise and is not noticeable. Great for PC casing than do not have rear exhaust and have empty expansion slots to spare.
For its purpose and design, there is not any cons.
Fixed in the first slot, it helps to exhaust the warm air from the hot CPU area. However if fixed parallel opposite a graphics card with cooler air intake facing each other, it may interrupt the airflow required to cool the grahics card. Therefore it will be good if the fan intake direction is changeable.
A PC casing fan using the PC's empty expansion slots without the need to make of have a dedicated fan mounts for rear exhaust.
