NZXT HAVIK 140 Cooler Review

Rating: 9.0.

Today we have the chance to put the NZXT HAVIK 140 CPU Cooler through its paces. This is the first retail CPU Cooler that NZXT have released and if size matters, they will have a winner on their hands! The HAVIK 140 uses six, 6mm heatpipes, 46 aluminum fins and dual 140mm fans to dissipate heat.

After an initial visual analysis the HAVIK 140 is a really impressive design. It appears that NZXT have put in the required research and development time on their end; but are they really going to be a serious contender in this extremely competitive CPU cooler market?
