well if you're putting a fan on the side of your heatsink it should lower temps quite a bit. It looks to me like it has an 80mm fan on it now... so switching to a 120mm fan should be good. it just depends on your choice of fans. if you get a hich cfm fan it should lower temps, a low cfm fan you might not get any gain. a silent 120mm fan should put out about 55cfm and that will most likely be more than your 80mm fan and still be quieter
