Newegg is having a case fan 20% off promotion for memorial day. So I guess Im goin to jump on that deal so Im thinking about overclocking my CPU and GPU soon so I am planning to buy 1 fan for my push and pull config for my hyper 212 + and maybe a PCI Slot Cooling fan. I am hopping atleast my temps are get lower by 10 C. Right now my temps are in the 37*C and my GPU is 40*C (the fan RMP is 20%). These temp are in idle mode and with stock volts and everything stock.

These are the products I am looking at Newegg.
AOC FC-2000
PCI Slot Case Cooler

and for my 2nd fan for CPU Push and Pull Config
Scythe DFS123812-3000
Case Fan

Total $17.13(after EMCNEHH244 coupon and I have free shiping from 2 day shipping)
My Current Rig
Asrock p67 Pro b3
Intel i5 2500k with Cool Master Hyper 212+
128GB Samsung 830
500GB Seagate HDD
Sapphire 7850 2GB DDR5
Zalman Z11 Case (non plus) (4 Fans include 2 80mm Side Fans, 1 120mm front fan and 1 Rear 120mm Fan).
Questions:
Do you guys think that those two products I am looking at a good choice? ( I dont care much about sound)
Do you guys think that those two products will lower my temps by atleast 10 C in Idle for now?
Are there any fans you would recommend me if you dont like the 2 products I suggested.
Do you guys know of a Place that sell the brackets for the fan instillation for the hyper 212+ (I m right now email them if they can sent me one they hadnt reply yet).

Hi

The fan you have linked too is an excellent fan however In my experience by adding a second fan to a heatsink or radiator usually only drops the load temps by a few degree's. I think you'd be lucky to see a 5C reduction under load and 2-3C reduction from your current idle temp.

The slot cooler will expel excess heat from your case, this will only be effective if your case airflow is currently inadequate.
