The cooler should have come with another set of brackets and four screws.

There will be two brackets, one for each side of the fan. You take the included screws and screw the brackets such that when you attach the fan, it is blowing in the same direction as your first fan.

If you install the brackets on the wrong side, you will have conflicting air flow and the cooler will not operate optimally.

You can check the direction of airflow by looking on the sides of the fan.
Here is an example:


If my explanation isn't good enough, look in the manual that came with the cooler. It should have directions to guide to you through installing a second fan onto the cooler.

Would you like to replace the fan that came with the cooler, or simply buy one more fan?

There are many great fans out there. So many, that I can't suggest a single fan. Check out Noctua, GELID, COUGAR, or Scythe fans. They have silent, yet high-pressure fans.

Make sure you buy a 120mm size fan. Fans come in different sizes: 80mm, 92mm, 120mm, 140mm, 200mm, etc.

In addition, make sure your motherboard has enough fan headers to support another fan. If it doesnt, make sure to get a molex 4-pin to 3-pin fan header as well...

buy another extra fan that is quieter.

I have checked but not sure which one to buy. Can you provide me with few links; I would be very thankful to you.

The one that came with is 120mm. So I have to buy the same size one right?

I'm not sure about this. Will google and see how to check fan headers.
