Splendid heatsink you've picked there! Great budget performer ^^

And yes, you can buy another 120mm fan for the other side. If you're going to do that I'd recommend you match fans. Same fan on both sides and such.

Though if you run two of these you might need to a y-pin splitter to run both of them in PWM mode unless you have more than one 4-pin header on your motherboard.

If you're looking for a quieter solution than the stock fan of the 212+ you can always put one of these on there.

That would cost more though of course . The stock Blademaster fan does a good job.
