I'm looking at getting a second fan for teh 212 evo as I would like to overclock my 2500k to 4.5Ghz with out geting above 75c at load.
Will any 120mm fan fit?

Cheers man.
Yeah, I don't get above 75c when I cool my room down to 25c or so with air con, but that's a drain on my wallet come bill time, and summer time in Australia is pretty hot, and my room is upstairs which is even hotter. So you can imagine the ambient temps being a problem of sorts.

Otherwise i guess you could try an R4 Blademaster.

Btw i doubt you'll get 75C max on a stress test with those settings and that cooler with one fan.
The only way it might is if you have a crappy case with one 80mm fan and didn't install the cooler properly.



I'm pretty sure that Blademaster is the fan that comes with the 212+ not sure about the EVO though. I looked at the specs, the fans look different but have the same specs.
