HYPER 212 EVO Push-Pull Fan Help!

I am looking towards getting a Hyper 212 EVO. I am running a FX-6300 on the ASRock 970 Extreme3 in the Corsair 200r (Stock fans). Please reply below if any other system specification is needed.

I have an extra Spectre LED (120mm) and I was wondering if I could do a push-pull config with the Hyper 212 EVO with the stock fan. If not, could I use the Specre LED Fan instead of the stock one and would it preform better?

Fan Specs:
Dimensions (mm) 120 x 120 x 25
Current (A) 0.16±10%
Speed (RPM) 1000±10%
Air Flow (CFM) 43.5±10%
Noise (dB-A) <20
Air Pressure (mmH2O) 0.62

Will the Spectre perform better than the stock given the CFM and Speed?

I have the 140mm and 120mm Spectre LED's and I am clueless on what to use them for. The 200r offers many mounts for fans, but no fan filters. So, I have the 2 fans un-used. Any useful way of using them?

Monitor temps for a few Days, maybe pop CoreTemp on when you start the day, it will track your min and max for the time period along with what you are currently at - then pull the Stock fan and try it with your Spectre and see how that does, can do same with a 2 fan config

That sounds like a good idea. I am pretty new to the fan configs on headsinks. So, I was just wondering if the push-pull fans would have to be identical for it to preform better.

I would imagine that the stock fan would perform better than the Spectre when each is ran individually since the stock has a much higher rpm/cfm maximum. Running the two together might not yield any performance gains since the two operate at such different speeds.

Perhaps if you set a custom fan profile so the stock fan would match the spectre fan speeds you might be able to match the stock fans cooling potential (by itself) while producing less noise.

Most people stick with matching fans and there isn't a whole lot of data available on the results of mixing multiple fans in a push pull setup. If you decide to try and use both fans make sure to record your findings and share them with us.

And it might even be slightly worse, due to turbulence from mismatched speeds.

Only way to tell is to do it and document the before and after.
