  1. Well, what are you trying to achieve? If it's better frame rates and detail in your games, CPU fan has little to do with it - you need a better GPU.

    That said, if your CPU or GPU are getting too hot, a better CPU fan and also better case cooling are necessary

    For better performance, the gpu should be upgraded.

    The R7 260X is not really an upgrade from a 650 ti as they are in the same performance category

    If you want a noticeable performance increase go for an R9 270/270X
