A good electric fan set-up still has a shoud. The only way to utilize all the surface of a radiator is to use a shroud, be it an electric fan or a fan driven via the engine. The shroud pulls air across the entire radiator.

If you simply mount electric fans right onto the radiator, with no shroud, only the area of the radiator adjacent to the fan will benefit from the cooling effect of the fans.
