Cases and cooling go together like peanut butter and jelly, ham and eggs, movies and popcorn, rum and Coke, and everything else that's better with the other. It shouldn't come as a shock to the system, then, that NZXT is releasing its first ever CPU cooler, the Havik 140. With funky looking fins and plenty of heatpipes, NZXT thinks it has a "true game changer" on its hands.
"CPU heat is a detrimental force that will devastate your gameplay," Johnny Hou, Founder and Chief Designer at NZXT, points out. "Havik 140 delivers a strategically designed whirlwind of ventilation to ensure the CPU operates at maximum efficiency when you're in the heat of battle. It does so without generating the noise levels of an aircraft carrier like other heatsinks on the market and carries a smaller footprint to reduce wear and tear on your motherboard."
The Havik 140 moves air over its six heatpipes and aluminum fins with nickel plating using dual 140mm fans with "expertly engineered fan blades." NZXT claims airflow is rated at 90.3 CFM at 27.8 dB.
NZXT's first cooler is available now for $75 and comes with mounting kits for both AMD and Intel systems.
