because it is bad. Its a popular fan and as such it is mindlessly bundled with popular heat sinks and sold to the masses. Just because it comes in a kit doesn't mean its the right choice. The S12 is meant to be a silent case fan that is capable of moving a crap load of air but it has practically no static pressure. You don't even have to no its specs just look at the fan blade design

Thermalright is correct tho a medium pressure fan is better but you have to understand that a high pressure fan at medium rotational speed will have a lower pressure then its rated at but will be quieter. A medium pressure fan will put out low pressure at medium speeds. I recommended you the best option. A high pressure fan thats high speed. You can use the speed controller to adjust it accordingly. The #1 thing you have to look at is the fin design!

Default Re: CPU heatsinks

heres how it works.. When a fan blade moves the air it will move on its own momentum until another fan blade passes by and pushes more air in its direction. if the air has to wait for another push its travel speed can slow down if its meting resistance. The faster and closer the pushes are the more force the air will have against the heat sink. so yes denser packed fins help and if they overlap then that really helps
