I've considered adding another one, but I wonder how they will interact with each other. Ideally, you'd have both fans up and running at the same speed, but that probably won't ever happen with PWM, which is what comes with the heatsink. I also have two of these 4-pin outlets on my motherboard. So the fan speeds will be variable and measured by two different circuits. How will this affect airflow across the heatsink?
