That is a lot of capital letters, the NZXT HAVIK 120 is here though and aiming to fit into some extra markets out there, with a smaller profile design and smaller fans it aims to tackle areas that they couldn’t reach with the 140 series. As someone who has an Antec Skeleton in their lineup I can say that sometimes you really do need something a little lower profile. Even my NZXT Phantom requires a bit of extra space due to the 250mm Antec fan mounted to the side panel opening. Coolers like the V10 and such tend to a little too tall for that setup.
NZXT uses their long-life 13 blade 120mm fan in push-pull configuration to cool the nickel-plated copper beast down at a steady 75cfm, the 8mm heatpipes cool and pump heat out of the socket base to keep things regulated and efficient. Overall it’s sleek and the nickel has a great finish to it. Given my impressions from the Phantom review I can only hold high hopes for this latest release. If we get lucky and catch a review of it I’ll go through the full details of the cooler and how it stacks up. In the meantime just check out the specs listed from NZXT and a nice gallery about the HAVIK 120.
