I have 20 bucks I wanna burn and may as well make them go toward some new fans, one side fan for my GPU and another fan for my new 212+.
You may not need the extra fan, but once you get it it's a decision you really wont regret. You could have spent the money on something else but once you have it you wont want to give it back.

Edit: I used to have a 212+ cooling an i7 875k. Push&pull with the same stock blademaster only give me around 2C difference under 4Ghz.
This is your answer for now. Costs nothing. You can even leave it connected to the psu temporarily.

Do cut out your rear grill. See item 2 in my sig for an example of that.

As for 4-pin y-cable, get this. Free shipping, and mine has withstood something like 500 fan changes and is still working as I write this (it's now on my sig rig). Just remember to cut one of the yellow wires or you will have two fans reporting their rpm to the mb. No harm done, but it's something like double the true fan speed.

Thanks, but already went with the eBay one x.x. Cost me an extra 2 bucks, but oh well. Good thing I didn't waste like 5$ more on the same item.
