What's the best 120mm fan to work along with a stock Hyper 212 Evo fan? <$15

Should the CFM or the RPM be more closely matched?

1) The cheapest fan is the one you don't buy. The hyper212 should be fine without a second fan.

2) If you do want to try a second fan, look for a yate loon fan. They are very good, quiet and cheap. Think $5

I thought the fans had to be similar?

There is nothing exotic going on. If it is a 120mm fan, it will fit physically.

One issue will be how to power it.
You might buy a splitter if you intend to vary the fan speed via motherboard control.
The simplest would be to plug it in to the psu and run it at a constant speed.

If you have not yet built the rig, I suggest you just try the supplied fan first.
If you think you need more, it is not hard to do so later.
