NZXT HAVIK-120 Review


 NZXT Havik 120



Those of you familiar with my reviews will know that a short "Fitting" page is in general terms a good thing as it means I haven't gone of on one and had a rant about about just how bad an item is to fit.  Well I'm pleased to report that the Havik 120 is a joy to fit.  This I think is in no small part o it having exactly the same mechanism as the Xigmatek Prime and the Havik 140.  And when I say exactly the same, I mean exactly the same, as in they're interchangeable with each other.  This isn't a bad thing, far from it.  if I had my way I'd pass a European legislation that made all OEMs design their coolers to fit this way.

In simple terms then it's a two stage process with a back plate being secured from behind with pass through bolts.  Brackets then screw onto these bolts.  The cooler is attached and a locking piece is passed through between the heat pipes and screwed down tight.  Attach the fans using the supplied bungees (you even get a spare in case you snap one, but believe me you'll have to try really hard to snap one).  Instructions are clear and concise and cover all major languages.  10-15 mins all in job done and you're good to go.

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
