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...80

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....81

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 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...-

NZXT made a positive impression within the enthusiast sector after they released their first CPU cooler – the Havik 140. It immediately started scooping up awards, as it performed at a similar level to the best coolers on the market. 6 months...80
