NZXT HAVIK 140
Why would you pay attention to it. NZXT
have a habit of producing hardware with similar design and HAVIK 140 is no
exception. The wavy rotors for this air cooling device have particular style,
but they also have practical benefits. NZXT designed the rotors to be quiet but
effective. They have the capacity of 90.3cfm and 25dBA noise. The base of
copper and aluminum grilles are also nickel.
Who should use it: users who want beautiful style and excellent performance.
Socket compatibility: Intel LGA775/1155/1156/1366; AMD AM2/2+/3.
Noise is rated: 25dBA
Why would you pay attention to it. Phanteks
understand that your cooling devices by air do not need to create buzzing sound
to have good effect. The big, ugly 140mm fan on this device spins at 1200rpm
speed and move 78.1cfm air, but your ears will not hear, because PH-TC140PE_BL
only creates 19dBA maximum noise. Want more air cooling? With the included fan
mouting, you can mount the 3rd 140mm fan for heat dissipation to create your
own wind tunnel.
Who should use it: the people who assemble machine are trying to keep the system as
quiet as possible without sacrificing cooling potential.
Socket compatibility: Intel LGA775/1155/1156/1366/2011; AMD AM2/2+/3.
Noise is rated: 19dBA
Why would you pay attention to it. Total 6
6mm heat pipes run through the base of Genesis and connect to the 2 thermal
grilles. One of them has vertical direction, while the other run with
horizontal direction, so you have a big heat absorption, but still have the
flexibility to install the system memory with high radiators. Plus your
120mm/140mm fan, and you are ready.
Who should use it: overclockers with some additional fans and coolers only need a
