This is the same fan as the stock Hyper 212 fan but with adressable RGB.

Should fit on your cooler.

Just make sure you have the right Header on your mobo to control the RGB.

Any 120mm fan will fit. Just make sure you get one which comes with controller. That way RGB compatibility is confirmed.

The MASTERFAN SF120R RGB is airflow-optimized.

For use on a heatsink u will want to buy a pressure-optimized fan like the Sickleflow.

The Masterfan will fit and work, but i cant guarantee you will keep exactly the same Performance.

The CPU may run a few °C hotter or the fan will be a little louder to keep the same temps.

To be clear, we're talking about 2-3 °C or so...

 

But again, make sure your mobo has the correct RGB-header so u can actually control it.

They're not the same. 

I haven't seen any good reviews of the new Sickfleflow 120 ARGB but it's probably better than the original Hyper 212 LED fan since that's not a very high bar to clear.

The SF120R RGB is more of a balanced design similar to the MasterFanPro 120 Air Balance or the stock Hyper 212 RGB BE. That being said, the Sickfleflow 120 ARGB seems like a better fan across the board from initial impressions and listed specs.
