NZXT unveils the HAVIK 120 CPU cooler
Andy Ruffell / 5 years ago
NZXT is known for many of their products, from their cases to their CPU coolers along with accessories of all sorts. Today we see this world leading manufacturer unveiling its latest product with the HAVIK 120 CPU cooler.
The HAVIK series has always been there to solve heat issues of the overclockers, with the HAVIK 120, NZXT is stepping down from the 140 but is still offering overclockers the cooling ability from its bigger brother.
By reducing the size, NZXT is providing a more compact and versatile cooler. The 120mm fan with 13 blades will provide intense cooling while remaining mostly silent.
The nickel-plated copper base has four 8mm heatpipes attached to it which then passes through aluminium fins aero-dynamically designed for improved airflow. This standard yet necessary process guarantees more efficient and effective cooling.
Within the vast array of accessories we find rubber fan mounting for noise absorption as well as the various brackets for both AMD and Intel CPUs along with the usual such as the various screws, thermal paste etc.
