I have a CM xtra flow and the stock 1200rpm CM fan, that came with my old CM case, mounted on the EVO.
The Xtra flow on the front is just fine,but the 1200RPM fan on the back will hurt air flow because it's spinning more slowly and preventing the intake from pushing air through,it'll also wear out the 1200RPM fan by making it spin faster than it is supposed to.
I'd like to be added,please. I upgraded from a 212+ to a 212 EVO because it's easier to mount and uses less TIM. I removed the xtra flow 120 that came with it for the old Blademaster 120 from my 212+.
However I'm having issues myself,my EVO is performing worse than my old 212+. I made a thread on it but thought I would ask here too. My idle temps are somehow better but on load is much much worse.
I used the typical pea size blob of AS5 and screwed the cooler down until the screws stop,but the temps are so bad I'm running the CPU stock at the moment. I left the CPU/NB @ 2800MHz. Testing with Prime 95 on blend heats the CPU up to 63C.
