Default New cpu cooler or remove side case fan?

Hey guys this is my first time posting up here and just got a couple questions. I'm doing my first build in about 8 years so I'm doing a full system overhaul. So far here's what my system will consist of.

Intel i7 2600k
Asus P8P67 Deluxe (comes in next week!!!)
Corsair TX750 PSU
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB
8 GB 2x4GB GSKILL DDR3-1600 PC3 12800
Apevia X-Dreamer 3 Case

With this setup I also purchased the coolermaster hyper 212+. Here's my question. From what I can see the cpu cooler will fit but I have to remove the side 120 mm fan. Would you guys recommend to go with this setup and lose the fan? because I already have 2 other 120 mm fans on the case or... should I keep the side case fan and return the cooler for a different one? If you recommend the 2nd option what would be a good lower profile cpu cooler for the i7.

Thanks for any help
