NZXT Gets Into The CPU Cooling Business With The Havik 140

I spent quite a while deciding on the fan for my new system, and although I’m happy with the one I got, It would have been nice to have this new Havik 140 from NZXT in the running as well. Mainly because I know it’ll be solid quality and it’s “universally compatible with Intel and AMD processors” — meaning I don’t have to drill down to comments and see whether this or that cooler works with my LGA1155 or whether it has some trifling build difference that breaks compatibility.

The fan design is funky, but I like it. My Cooler Master Hyper 212 is a full 10dB quieter according to the specs, though, so if you’re designing a silent system you might want to keep looking.
