Are 4 better than 2?

Hello everyone. I was wondering if I would be able to notice a significant (enough) difference for CPU cooling if I put 4 fans around the CPU radiator as opposed to two? I'm super new to this so any help would be great. I've seen it both ways with just two fans on the radiator and a couple builds with four fans so that's where my question comes from.

Thanks!

It will make a minor difference in temperatures. A few degrees celsius normally tops.

So what I'm getting from you is that it wouldn't be worth it to buy another pair of after market fans for a radiator because the performance doesn't justify the extra cost?

In a nutshell yes. You're not going to get any performance benefits by doing so.

To put it basically. No.
