I am starting a new build.

CPU -2500k
CPU Cooler -Hyper 212 Plus
Case - Antec 902 V3
GPU - HIS Turbo 6950 2gb
Ram - 8gb Gskill LV

I want to know if the Hyper 212 Plus will fit in this case if i put a 120mm Fan on the side of the case where the slot is?

You really don't need it with that case. You may get a 1-2C temp drop on your GPU by adding a side-mounted fan, but having (2) intake fans up front combined with rear and top mounted exhaust fans will provide all sufficient airflow for your PC. A side-mounted fan would be highly recommended in a situation where you only had 1 intake and 1 exhaust. For a detailed study on fan placement and impact on cooling you should read this article:

Have that case with a 160mm tall cooler = side fan won't fit.
I used the hdd mount bracket for a 120mm = directly infront of gpu.
