Default Installing 2 fans on a TRUE

I was looking at it and it looks like there's room to add a second fan on the backside of the TRUE and maybe securing it with a couple zip ties.

Anyone think this is worth it for the push/pull airflow effect, or a waste of time?

Only reason I ask is now that warmer weather is upon us and indoor ambient have gone up, so have my core temps a bit. Its nothing major but if I can keep core temps running cooler while overclocked I would add another fan onto the heatsink.

I can always turn down the OC if I have to during the summer months, its no big deal but I'd like to avoid it running warm plus acting like a little space heater.

I've debated on it, but i'm entirely too lazy to fab up a good way to do it. Plus it cools just fine with a single pushing fan.

Nothing to see here.

I've seen a good improvement while using silent fans (2-3*C on idle). One wasn't really powerful enough for the dense fins.
