There are many factor's the dictate weather or not you can get better cooling out of more CFM/Pressure. Fin spacing, heat pipe placement, surface area...it goes on. From the test's I have ran, anything over around 90 CFM on a Cooler Master Hypere 212+ is over doing it a little...The cooler just isnt big enough to support so much moving air. What worked best was to take two 120x38mm fans(san ace 1011's) mount them in push pull, and run them both off a fan controller via Y cable, drop them down some and temps were insane for such a cheap cooler... HOWEVER..thats a $25-35(pending on wher you get it) cooler with $50 bucks worth of fans...lol isnt D-14 about that price*wink wink*

I also have some Delta 2500 RPM 120x120x25MM fans I could try as well.
I would totaly do it!
the 1011's are around 2600 RPM.. I would think that the delta 3700 fans spining 1k RPM faster would make up for the 1011's having more blade angle. Pressure may not be the same but close enough..in theory lol dooo eeet!!
