So, would using a 3rd fan on the Dark Rock Pro 4 improve the performance.

But, instead of adding the 3rd fan on the end of the cooler. How about mounting it on the first fan? So stacking up 2 fans :)

I can tell you from experience with having tried the triple fan setup on an NH-D15S.
Short answer, yes.
Technical answer:
It's about as effective as the small dot thermal paste VS the blob applications; some thermal paste is better than none, but one is just wasteful.
1C - MAYBE 2C cooler, depending on the fans, with added noise. You might even start to hear an audible whine at the higher fan rpms.
Plus, the 3rd, or rear heatsink fan, is so close to the rear case fan that it becomes pretty redundant.
