Adding another fan to the hyper 212+

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Well i want to add another 120mm fan to it, for push/pull or whatever is most efficient but for the life of me i can't find which fans will work with the 212+ or how would i set it so it works for push/pull.. any1?

Any fans will technically work with it. Even 38mm ones. The Hyper 212 comes with those nifty mounting brackets that allow you to use any size 120mm fan instead of the wire mounting brackets that are restricted. Get 2 good high static fans and set them up in P/P. Obviously the next question would be how much noise can you stand?

Sorry to sound like a noob, but can i use these even though it says case fans?

Also even noobier question, how exactly do you set one to be push pull? Do you just set them up any way and the fact that they're two on each side P/P is just simple physics?

Yes they will work fine. Are you looking for performance fans or just solid fans with a little style?

Performance definitely, it'll be cooling a 2500k, not even sure if i need to add another fan to it.

Honestly unless you are grabbing dual AP-15's there isnt any reason to get a second fan unless you simply want ont, i have seen reviews taht say the stock fan by itself is good enough to use without a p/p config, and when adding a second fan there was no drop in temps. Or scythe kaze's, basically anything SUPER high quality is what i recommend.

Well the one you linked to is more about looks with the LED and well 69CFM isnt that bad but most "performance" fans are 80CFM and up and get noisy.

The Scythe Ultra Kaze is pretty good for the money. Can probably search elsewhere and find fans for cheaper though, probably here on OCN.

So i won't need 2 fans on this thing just for a 2500k?

The fan that comes with it is pretty good. Plus it's PWM.

Push/pull will only save you 1-2C at most. Real benefit of push/pull is at lower rpm's.
