Hi folks! I am a new builder looking to keep CPU temps under control. I purchased the CM hyper 212 evo and use Tuniq 4 thermal compound I was wondering if I should use the stock CM fan that came with the heat sink or scrub it and add a better fan/ or fans to it. I am guessing on any note I want the airflow in the direction of the rear of the case. Oh! yeah my case is a Rosewill challenger if that helps. Also noted I will be in a nice cool place 68F all year round for the resting room for this computer.
Keep in mind this is my first build and yes eventually I would upgrade to water cooling but I wasnt planning on getting out of control on the overclocking and just want to be sure I am cooling in the right fashion before moving forward.4

More abouthyper fans
The stock fans will be fine. They're PWM, meaning their speed and hence airflow will vary with temperature. You may get a performance increase by switching to more expensive fans, but I would doubt the cooling increase would justify the expenditure.
