So I found out that my vrm has been heating up causing me to drop fps in games after playing them for a while. Would adding a second fan to this 212 EVO help? Here's a pic of where it would go

What would be a cheap yet good 120mm fan to use?

No, that will not help. Add more airflow to your chassis.

^Agree

I would get an 80mm fan and use that to blow air down on the VRMs. The stock fan on AMD's processors are perfect for achieving that task also. You just have to be creative in mounting it.

It would be nice if their stock coolers didn't suck and were not loud.

Do antec still make those little coolspot fans?

Those are ideal for cooling VRMS on those hot FX systems!

You can buy individual VRM heatstinks and use thermal tape to stick them. Couple that with normal case fans for airflow and you should be fine.
