    Hi there, newcomer here.
    I need a pair of new fans and i was thinking about getting THIS ONE for the heatsink push and THIS ONE for the pull.

    What do you guys think? would it work?

    Adding in your system specs would help, but on the basic end, what cooler are these fans for?

    Also no real point in going with a silent fan on the front. Since the high air flow fan is going to be noisy anyways, I would just use two of the latter fans, to do even better than a slower silent one and the stronger one on the back.

    One last edit as well. Corsair does sell 2-packs of these fans that are matched, and do sell for a few dollars less than buying two singles.

    Sure thing, i'm sorry i'm new to this.
    So:
    AMD Phenom II X6 1055T @2.8Ghz | 8GB(4x2)1333 DDR3 RAM | GTX 550 TI 2048 | on ASUS M4N68TM_LE MB
    This fans would be for a Hyper 212 by Coolermaster.

    well to be blunt, the stock fan provides more CFM than either of those fans. Using two of the higher CFM corsairs should be slightly better, but my guess is only a couple or a few degrees better.

    I have to assume there is a reason you want these fans other than looks. With the cost of these fans you could already be half to three-quarters of the way to a cooler that offers say 5-6 degrees improvement out of the box.

    You really can't go wrong just getting another of the stock fans for that cooler from cmstore.com. They move a large amount of air anyway, and ideally you want them to both be moving the same amount of air.

    I'm assume by stock you mean Coolermaster's. What would CFM stands? Higher = better?
    That website won't open =p

    Also I need a store that ships to brazil or is on brazil.

    Try this one, it should work: http://www.coolermaster.com.br/

    EDIT: Also, yes, with CFM, higher is usually better, but not always. Also, higher Cubic Feet per Minute usually means more noise as well, so it depends on how much noise you can live with.

    CFM is the air flow measurement ( Cubic Feet per Minute) and usually higher is better to an extent! Yes I was speaking of the stock CoolerMaster fan.

    Also you should be able to find the fan in many places. My fan that shipped on that cooler was the A12025-20CB-4BP-C1. Google-ing that part number should allow you to shop other places for them.

    Over 90 is going to be quite loud in my opinion, unless the fan is specifically designed with something special, and most in that range do not. Something to ponder too, is that with a better cooler behind the fan, you dont need as much CFM to keep it cool. There comes a point where the amount of airflow no longer matters if the heat sink is saturated from say overclocking a high power CPU.

    Well, m
    My hyper 212 runs up to 82CFM I believe, but is PWM controlled (Speed increases as temperature does), and I rarely hear it. It will also depend on the type of case you have as well, how much you hear the cpu fan outside.

    Take the fan off the cooler and look at the back of the fan. There is a sticker that will have the part number on it. Also the EVO had a different fan on it than the plain 212 fan I listed earlier.

    That would be a problem, you see, my fan have no sticker on the back =p I have unglued a long time ago. I'm looking for a replacement cause it is almost defective. I have to "oil it" from day to day so it keep working till i change for a pair of new ones.

    On mine at least, I ordered a second one from the U.S. store, and it looks and sounds exactly like the one that came with the cooler. Blademaster is not bad by the way.

    From what I can tell that is not the fan for the Evo. The fan for the Evo is 82.9CFM .... http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=3053

    let me simplify things. You want any fan that has 83CFM or better, and also offers 2.7mmH20 of static pressure. Does not have to be a CM fan.
     
    rtwjunkie says thanks.

    Care to offer some fans then? I wish to build a push/pull system for that heatsink so i would need 2 of the same.

    :D Thanks for the clarification sneekypeet! I was doing my best to compare figures between the two of them, the one with fan and just the fan, since I could only somewhat figure out Portuguese. That's what I said earlier about the 82CFM, but the Brazilian site lists it as 76 on their EVO.

    Anyway, your link shows the correct one!

    JetFlow 120s would work from CoolerMaster without breaking the wallet too badly. Also you can choose the LED color ;)

    @rtwjunkie you may be correct on your fan as well. There is an asterisk at the bottom saying accessories may vary by region. ;)

    There seems to be no JetFlo on CMBR website.
    http://www.coolermaster.com.br/lisProdutos.php?cod=11
    So Excalibur is NO NO, right?

    The Excalibur fans have similar CFM, but higher static pressure. That helps when the air flow is restricted, and most air coolers don't benefit as much as say a radiator would from the static pressure. They should work, but don't expect serious temperature drops.

    What is the reasoning for the fans?
    Is the fan on the cooler dead?
    Are you looking to clock that CPU higher?
    Like I said earlier. The CM 212 Evo is a good budget cooler, but if you plan to clock for the stars on that CPU, it is not really intended to do that in the first place.
