Conclusion

The NZXT Havik 120 is not a bad cooler at all. Granted it is not going to compete with its big brother but does compete well with other smaller coolers on the market. Most of it is due to the usage of two 120mm quiet cooling fans.

 In our testing when using both fans the cooler was well worth the $50 asking price. It easily outperformed the SilenX Extreme HA5 which comes with only one fan and it did well against the Cooler Master TPC 812 which is another great cooler but once again only uses a single fan.

Using the cooler in a single fan configuration we saw the Havik 120 kind of struggle some. It did outperformance the SilenX offering but could not hang with the Cooler Master TPC 812. This clearly shows the NZXT designed the cooler to be used with both coolers to get maximum performance.

One thing that I really like about the Havik is the fan mounting. It is one of the easiest solutions we have dealt with. The assembly of the wire cramps can be cumbersome sometimes. These rubber straps are a breeze to attach to the fan and are very secure.
