Hi I bought the Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus and was wondering if I should go for the Push/pull Configuration. I will be using stock fan from the Heatsink and a Arctic Cooling AF12PWm 120mm fan. Thank you for your answers in advance :)

It's not as difficult as you think, but based on the information i found, it looks to be a 2-3c difference is all. If you already have the fan i say go for it.

No. I added a second fan and regretted it. I only gained 2 degrees. Your best bet if your wanting to buy a fan is just buy a higher quality one than comes with it for quieter operation.

If you're looking for a significant decrease in CPU temperatures, this isn't the way to get there. A second fan will decrease your temps by MAYBE 2-5 degrees C. If you already have a second fan, go for it, but save your money and valuable case space otherwise and stick with a powerful single fan.

I'd wager that adding a second fan could actually prove detrimental because it would:
1. Limit available space inside the box
2. Limit airflow somewhat (more space taken up by plastic)

Hope I helped.

I'm just gonna add the fan since i already ordered it. Not to mention with the 6 case fans in my pc I might get a 5-6 Degree difference. SO we'll see.
