Yes they work.

Give it as much space as possible for air on the intake side of the fan. A;lso be certain that you are getting enough airflow into the case so that the fan is not reduced in its effectiveness because it can't maintain its design pressure.

Cooling inside a computer case is an airflow system, not just a fan or two.
