Hooking up an old fan to heatsink

Specs: Windows 7 Pro, Intel i5 2500k / 8 gb ddr3 1333
Hello community, back with another question. This one a lot a lot quicker to answer then my last, this time relating to switching out one fan already installed for one I can hook up to a fan controller already included.

The question isn’t about how to switch them, but if I can buy mounts to move the old fan to the backside of a hyper evo 212, providing an out take and an extra use for said fan. My current CPU is running no hotter then 70c but I’m an avid overclocker and want to see that number drop even by the slightest. I’ve never had a heatsink with dual fans so I can’t speculate yet if even buying mounts(if possible) would be worthwhile. Does anyone here have any hindsight into if this would be beneficial?

Thank you all again for your time, all of which is considered.

if you want to see some reasonable improvement try delidding, but do some research before doing so, using liquid metal instead of the thermal paste can reduce temps by a lot

for me i went down (during stress tests) from 90C+ to 70C while the 90C+ tests where done @4.67GHz @ 1.34vcore
70C after delidding with 1.385vcore @ 4.8GHz (i can even do 4.9GHz @1.45 but i don't feel like taking that risk for a 2% increase)

delidding is quite risky tho, its best to get one of those delid kits for like 10~15$ to be safe

EDIT: im also using the hyper 212 evo, with 1 rear exhaust fan in my entire case, side panel off

70C isn't overheating but it's definitely way too hot. The Tcase rating for your CPU is 72.6C. What is the temp at idle & which heatsink are you running?

Yes, your heat sink supports dual fans:

They show an optional second fan and probably offer just the brackets as well, just do a little research:

You should show at least a few degrees temp drop and possibly ten or maybe more degrees.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

you're better off running something like realbench(giving more real life temps), IBT makes the CPU run at max temps in seconds.

you can also keep something like HWinfo64 in the background/systray & see what your max temps are after 4-6 hours of use.
idd say you're fine as long as you're not running it above 75~80C for a long time.

What are you using the system for btw?
