My max temps only dropped by 1 to 2 degrees when I added the second fan.

The drop should be about 2C. If noise is an issue you could try to swap the 212 fan for the noctura, and put the other fan as an extra intake for positive pressure.

Haha I just asked the same question not that long ago, a lot of people have said, like they have said here, it only droped by 1 or 2C, "if your lucky" you might get 3 or 4C.
