  1. The stock fan is already one of the best fans, replacing it will only drop it a couple degrees C, unless noise is an issue which it shouldn't be, just use the stock one.
  2. No, but using a push pull with another of the same will help.
  3. Depends on how many RPMs the fans have. Go for the one with a higher RPM.
  4. Thermal performance? Probably not. Acoustic performance? Yes.

    So adding two fans on opposite sides and having them blow toward the exhaust?

    EDIT: I misread everything. I mean just adding a fan to the backside and having that pull from the front fan to the back exhaust.
  6. use any fan with high CMF and static will make a different ... but the noise will he higher

    Actually, it's often not about the RPM's. Many fans with lower RPM's have higher CFM's and higher static pressure. It's about the design. A few RPM's doesn't hurt though. Heh. And actually, I just tried a Noctua NF-P12 on my 212 EVO heatsink and my temps actually went UP, although it was noticeably quieter.
