NZXT HAVIK-120 Review

Introduction and Technical Specification




We all saw what a stellar cooler the NZXT 140 was when Tom tested it back in December last year.  It's now time to see what the 120 model can do. Sporting 4 x 8mm heat pipes and twin 120mm fans, the pedigree inherent in it's bigger brother should hopefully see it match if not better similar specked 120mm fan units. Aesthetically with its Black and white finish it should also fit in well with the colour schemes of a great many of the new monochromatic cases hitting the market at present. But the proof of the pudding is in the eating as they say so lets have a look at the full specs and then see what it can do.

Nice review Gary, As I am on the daughters laptop atm I had to scroll up and down to compare fan results, what might help others in the future would be a vertical red bar of the temps achieved by the item in question.going up through all results for easy comparison.Quote

the 120 really is a nice bit of kit. Whatever it is NZXT are doing it seems to be working.

This lady with the whp, does she take bookings? Quote

£46 seems steep for a heatsink of this performance level. Actually all heat sinks are starting to sink into much higher price brackets! what happened to the ocz vendetta that stomped everything at £28Quote
