I want to get another fan for the heat sink.
Does it matter what kind of 120mm fan I get?
Will any 120mm fan work?

Yes. It's dimensions must met the 120mm distance.

^ Also, if you plan on doing a push-pull setup try to get as close of an rpm to the stock fan on the Hyper 212+ as possible. Too slow and you'll mess up the push-pull and probably get slightly higher temps than if they were close to the same rpms. Oh what I mean is the RPM/CFM should almost be the same as the Hyper 212+'s stock fan.

FYI, maximumpc did a test on the CM 212+ with two fans and saw very little increase in cooling. I have the same cooler and saw the same results. In fact using a slower RPM fan did improve temps a bit while a faster one actually increased them.

My personal recommendation, the cooler is great as is with one fan and the second is just not worth it.

here is a link to their test

Thanks for the replies.
I was probably gonna use molex, although
after seeing the review on it I have decided
to just stick with the one thats already on there.


Thats info for the future.

Thnx again
