Hyper 612 PWM second fan, and thermal paste?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
First. I read in many reviews that the stock fan is already great, but i was thinking of getting a Sickleflow and use it as a push fan, with the stock one as pull. Is this a good idea?

Second, i've been searching everywhere and can't find any info on the thermal paste that comes with the hyper 612pwm. Is it good? And if not, which one should i get?

The heatsink is designed to be able to handle two fans. Go for it.

I would suspect it's the standard CM goop. Keep in mind that basically all thermal paste is good these days. The expensive top performing stuff will only be 3C cooler at the most. Where you'll see the most difference is proper application.
