Ill be running 2 86 CFM aerocools on my xiggy sometime soon so ill let you all know if that makes much difference on temps. its not supose to make a huge difference though from what ive read, maybe 2-5c, you may see the same improvement by gutting an old 120mm fan and using it as a spacer between the fan and the HSF though, I plan on doing that as well as adding the 2 fans.

I have the same HAF 932 case. I really like the cable management part but have a difficult time trying to adjust to the shape and size of it. I was checking out the Cosmo-S RC1100 and love it but it has space problem with a Noctua NH-U12P heatsink. So, I kind of force into the HAF.

I am using one fan to push the air on the heatsink although the Noctua package came with 2 fans. Both are quiet and love it.

So far, I am not pushing my rig as it is new and not fully configured yet. So, the fans that came with case is good enough for now.
