You know I have the Hyper 212+ and I tried using a faster fan on it. Specifically I used a 110CFM Scythe Slip Stream and it really didn't make an improvement from the stock fan at max speed. Skip the fan and buy some OCZ Freeze. Its one of the better compounds you can get. The tube comes with enough compound for many applications. So far I have done 2 CPUs and 4 GPUs with the same tube.
