Yes. It pulls air from the front and out from the back. Best way to cool them is to place a fan that moves decent CFM next to the card to increase airflow... I've done it with my 280s and have had good results...

My case is too small for a fan behind the cards, so it sucks in all my hard drive(2) heat
