Adding a slim fan to the Hyper 212 EVO?

After torturing my CPU at 90 degrees for a week and replacing the old fan with a new Hyper 212 EVO, I'm thinking of adding a new fan next to it, specifically the Scythe Slip Stream Slim (http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=8_130&item_id=039680). My question is will it work? Also, if you have other opinions on other fans that could be much better, feel free to do so.

More about adding slim hyper
  1. I use 2 red led 120mm coolermaster sickleflows in push\pull on my 212 EVO.
  2. you might have some trouble mounting because the way the fans mount onto the heat sink is through a fan bracket. You attach the fan to a bracket and screw it in then attach it onto the heat sink and since they are SLIM and not fill size it might not work.
  3. They will work as the mounting brackets simple screw into the holes on the fan. Fan thickness has no bearing. I use the blue sickle flow 120's and my 4.25Ghz 960T idles at ambient and never exceeds 50c.
  4. Yes you are right, I was thinking of another thing sorry sorry. The fan will mount.

    It Will Work As Long As You Can Power It And Mount It

    It Can Be Mounted Because Its Diameter Is Compatible

    You Can Connect Its 4/3-pin Chassis Fan Connector To The Motherboard Or The PSU With Some Spliters
  6. You can try to get Scythe Gentle Typhoons if you can, they went out of business in NA couple days ago. Or get the Noctua NF-F12. Those are a bit more expensive but they are well worth it.
  7. Corsair SP120 High Performance Fans Will Do The Trick I Had My System Burning At 90 Degrees Max 95 Degrees But When I Replaced The Fans With These Fans It Became 70-80
    Degrees I Don't Mind Helping Anyone :)
  8. SP120 Have Different Colors Look Stunning Have Good Airflow And A Quiet Edition For Shushing Down The System But Still Using Noise Dampening Material Will Make This A Silent Enough Fan ;)
  9. Pushing And Pulling My 120mm Rad Is What I Did With Those Fans P.S My Closed Loop System Is A H80 From Corsair
