EVO 212 aftermarket FAN

I have a slight problem with EVO 212 fan being blocked by ram heat sink, my previous topic: EVO 212 blocks RAM heat sink . I was wondering, what if I changed EVO 212 fan? Are there any good options? And can anybody tell me what fan EVO 212 uses (brand,name etc) ?

So far I was thinking between these: (all of them 120mm, and I'm not sure about rpm, should I get 1200 or 1600?)

My first choice, since it's slim [120 x 120 x 12 mm]:

Other choices (they might not fit)[120 x 120 x 25 mm]:

I would like your opinions about these fans, if they are better than EVO 212 stock fan.

Thanks.

The best alternative is to mount the CPU fan on the other side of the heatsink to pull air through the heatsink instead.

The stock fan is manufactured by Cooler Master.

If you're having clearance problems the slim fan from Scythe may worth looking at, but as stated, mounting the fan on the other side of the heatsink in a pull arrangement might be best.

The slim fan's airflow will be lower than a thicker fan, while putting the stock fan in a pull arrangement will have a smaller impact.

I guess then I will leave evo 212 in a pull arrangement.
