but i might buy 2 new ones for my cpu cooler i was also thinking of passive since it is a big heatsink
what are your thoughts
i have great airflow in the case have 7 140mm fans up and running so thats not an issue

Then I would put a very very thin layer on the cpu lid and try it out....sure is better then stock:)
I almost forgot ...then you can use you original 212's fan to make a push pull setup.

Also i do not recall TT power supplies being very good at all.
Good power supplies have a single 12 volt rail like my Corsair 850tx has a 70 amp 12 volt rail. I could modify it to charge up 3 deep cell 12 volt deep cycle batteries in my fathers bass boat and it would be overkill. But i bet wit h 70 amps it could jump start a car and live;)
I am not saying you PSU is bad but if it is dropping to 6 volts it probably wont last long. Also crappy PSU can ruin a motherboard "and you have a expensive one" CPU and video card if it blows out the wrong way.
Since you probably moved that PSU from another Rig to this newer one i would look to get a new quality PSU since the CPU you have now is a power hog "overclocked you could pull 200+ watts just from the cpu!" and i do not know what kinda video card you are running.
