So there has been a lot of hype around this cooler, FINALLY we have managed to convince NZXT to let us test one!

Great review Tom, now hopefully people will see why i rant about this cooler lol

Need to persuade NZXT to create a twin tower version, would be a beast of a cooler.

There was a member on here that posted his temps using the Havik to cool his 990X at 4.4ghz months ago showing it was just as good as the D14.

Nice to see it get a gold award with a full review and vid though and it's good to know NZXT have finally stopped sulking over the H2 review.

I remember that . StreekG is his username iirc.

Brilliant review and really impressive cooler. I might buy one to replace my Hyper 212+, seeing as I have tall ram.

dam did NOT think that a single tower would be that good (even with the louder fans, but still) also the color will be more appealing to a lot of people, and add the ram options and the price, i think overall this is = to the d14

you mention in he video that it was moveable on the cpu with the 5mm spacers, so was thinking if you were to use 4mm spacers so it would be a tighter fit maybe it's cooling would be even better maybe to the point of matching the d14. just a thought

Edit: also think this looks nicer then the d14 tbh
