The Packaging

The HAVIK 120 comes in a very similar package to its bigger brother. The black trim on the sides surrounds the white front panel that displays the cooler in full view along with four points covering the easy installation, the four 8mm heat pipes, the 22 dB noise rating and the dual fan nature of this cooler.

On the side you get a side view of the HAVIK 120 along with a brief statement from NZXT about the HAVIK series and the 120 in more detail. Summarizing, the HAVIK 120 offers versatility, larger pipes and nickel plating to deliver an inexpensive, performance enthusiast cooler.

The back of the packaging offers finer details about the HAVIK 120.It covers the rubber fan mounts, the thirteen blade FZ fans and their speed, the hardware is laid out to see, and they cover the design of the fins and the base. At the bottom you get the specifications.

Here we find all of the compatible sockets the HAVIK 120 fits. Simplifying the information, this cooler will fit anything from Intel, LGA775 and newer, including LGA2011. For AMD buyers, this will work with any CPU from Socket AM2 though AM3+ and socket FM1. The bottom of this side is used for technical drawings with all the dimensions you will need to see if it will fit into your build.

Lifting the top of the box exposes the installation manual and the Intel universal back plate shipped on top of the foam. The cooler, fans, and the rest of the hardware is snugly packed in below.

The hardware box on the left is fit into a notch in the high density foam that surrounds the pair of FZ 120mm fans and the body of the cooler wrapped in plastic behind it. This definitely is sufficient packaging in my book as it delivered an intact and ready to install product.
