CPU Fan for Push/Pull and additional case fans

I'm looking into purchasing additional fans for my computer- I'm not particularly happy with the temps it's running at. (I prefer to buy from newegg)

I have a hyper 212 evo, and I want to get another fan for a Push/Pull setup, and I need a recommendation on what fan to get.; I also have no idea how to get it setup, so if somebody could link to a good tutorial that would be great.

I have a Corsair Carbide 400r and and Asrock Z77 extreme 3 motherboard; I haven't added any fans into my case, so I think I have room for two 120mm fans on both sides, as well as another two on the top; my motherboard, however, only has two more ports for case fans, so am I only able to set up two more case fans, or is there a way I could install more? I need recommendations for good case fans as well.

Thanks for the help!

Well you can buy Corsair fans, specifically the SP120 Fans twin pack: (They work great in heatsinks and radiators) and if you don't want to loose the 2 x 3Pin fan connectors in the motherboard you can buy this: It accepts 4 Pin and 3 Pin fans.

And for the other fans probably the AF120 also from corsair (Better for exhaust fans and non-restrictive intakes) But you don't need to fill all the fan mounts. If you have more intake CFM than exahust you achieve a positive air pressure it'll help to reduce dust in the case and the temps.
So you can add another intake in the side panel for the GPU and a top exhaust.
