Will an aditional fan (or fans) give me a noticeable decrease in temp ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I recently got a CM hyper 212+ and as you may know it comes with one fan to put on and has room for one more fan on its backside, so if I buy another fan will there be a noticeable decrease in temp ?

Maybe 2 or 3 degree's difference, depending on the fan you're using.

If you're puting fans on a heatsink try to make sure they're both the same type of fans so you know that they're moving an equal amount of air.

Also make sure the second fan is pulling air out of the heatsink. You don't want two intake fans, you want one intake and one exhaust. (A known as a Push/Pull setup)

Considering fans are only a few $$$ it's definitely worth a try.

Write down your idle/load temps with 1 fan installed and compare it with idle/load temps with 2 fans.
