NZXT Outs HAVIK 120 CPU Cooler with LGA 2011 Support

NZXT has just unveiled a new CPU cooler, dubbed the HAVIK 120, that was designed to be compatible with a wide series of sockets from both AMD and Intel, including the recently launched LGA 2011 platform. 

The new cooler is actually a slightly more compact version of the HAVIK 140 which has now been fitted with four 8mm heatpipes for drawing the heat produced by the CPU in an aluminum heatsink.

This is seconded by a 120mm fan with aluminum blades that, as most other such solutions available today, is PWM controlled for adapting its speed depending on the temperature of the processor.

According to NZXT, this can vary between 1200 and 1500 RPM, delivering from 61.5 to 75.8 CFM of airflow, while the noise output level is rated at a maximum 22dBA (18dBA minimum).

Performance freaks should be glad to know that NZXT’s latest creation can be fitted with a secondary 120mm to create a push-pull configuration.

Outside of the 120mm fan, the HAVIK 120 is also shipped together with an additional pair of fan mounting clips as well as with the required AMD and Intel CPU mounting clips.

These are compatible with Intel's LGA 1155, LGA 1156, and LGA 2011 sockets and can also be used with AMD's AM2, AM3, AM3+ and FM1 processor mounts.

“HAVIK 120 is a great victory for overclockers seeking a small yet powerful fan cooler that won’t break the bank” said Johnny Hou, Founder and Chief Designer at NZXT.

“The original HAVIK 140 has been highly decorated with awards in the enthusiast community. HAVIK 120 should yield similar performance in a slightly smaller form factor for under $60,” concludes the company’s rep.

According to the company, the HAVIK 120 is available right now with a $54.99 MSRP, which translates into about 41 EUR.
