NZXT DIDN’T ENTER the CPU cooling game until quite recently. We reviewed its first cooler, the skyscraper Havik 140, in December 2011. The Havik 140’s dual 14cm fans helped it power to the top of our air-cooling charts, though the slightly...

The NZXT Havik 120 heatsink ships with two 120mm FZ fans that attach to either side of the heatsink fin tower. Users can get by with only one fan if they so desire, but as the impeller speed is 1500RPM it's best to use both fans....

The NZXT Havik 120 is not a bad cooler at all. Granted it is not going to compete with its big brother but does compete well with other smaller coolers on the market. Most of it is due to the usage of two 120mm quiet cooling fans. In our testing...

NZXT makes their first venture in air cooling with the Havik series. The Havik 120 is smaller than some of the gargantuan air coolers we have seen before, and we hate to beat a dead horse, but memory module clearance continues to be the biggest issue...

The Havik is marketed essentially as a smaller version of the Havik 140. That being the case you'd expect the 2 units to look pretty much identical, or at the very least to share certain visual attributes and perhaps technologies. In essence...

The Havik 120 is the second CPU cooler to come to market from NZXT, following the Havik 140. NZXT made what seems like a very wise choice in using Xigmatek and their experience in top quality coolers as their OEM manufacturer. Having been downsized a...

In fact, the only drawback the new NZXT Havik 120 has is its high price. Today 55 dollars will buy you not only a more efficient but also a quieter cooler, and we had one of them competing against the newcomer in our today’s test session. If Havik...

I cannot say I am unhappy with the results that came out of this cooler, especially considering it can be purchased for around $50 and is basically a miniature version of the NZXT Havik 140. The performance is spot-on, there are no features that I...

Video Review: The NZXT Havik 120 CPU Cooler is an affordable cooler that looks great, comes with two 120mm fans, 4 heatpipes and performs well. It's also not to large so it should fit in almost any case....

The NZXT HAVIK 120 is a beautiful cooler, sturdy and well-constructed, with a reasonably good cooling performance.Unfortunately, this cooling performance is below the average for coolers that are about the same size, even the ones with only one fan....

They're a bit large to be stocking stuffers, but two products released this week by component maker NZXT are sure to light up many a holiday season. The first is the NZXT HALE82 series of PC power supplies, so named for their minimum, 82 percent...

in the same way and look at its build quality. Overall the Switch case is very impressive on that front with solid steel construction, a good paint job and some very nice plastic with soft touch coating that fits the overall chassis very well....
