From inception to execution, the HAVIK 140 is an extremely impressive first CPU cooler for the company, and immediately found a follow up: the HAVIK 120 (review coming soon). Performance is very good mainly due to some very important design key...90

NZXT definitely made a good impression going into the CPU cooling market with the Havik 140. It’s a very unique cooler with a lot of upside features and good cooling performance. Initial pricing on the Havik 140 was distinctly too high, but it has...-

With the HAVIK 140, NZXT has proven to me that they can take their skills and expertise in the PC gaming world and apply them to just about any component that they want. The cooling performance was top notch, the noise production was just about...-

The Havik 140 turned out to be an awesome performer with an easy to install design, a decently flat base, powerful fans that are not too loud. All of this adds up to a winning combo that knocks out one of the best coolers the Prolimatech Armageddon....80

NZXT is new to the cooler game, but if the Havik 140 is any indication, the company isn’t being dumb about it. The Havik 140 is a hefty cooler in the stacked-fins “skyscraper” style, with six copper heat pipes rising from the heat...90

One of the wonderful things about modern CPUs is that they overclock extremely well without putting out much heat. Modern Sandy Bridge processors overclock higher and more easily than first-gen i7 chips, while drawing less power and putting out less...90

NZXT became well known a few years back initially mainly due to their excellent fan controllers, great looking PC Cases and very good case fans. Since then however they have expanded to several other areas of manufacturing including power...-
