Testing and Setup:

Testing of this heatsink will involve applying a load simulated by Prime95, using small FFTs in stock and overclocked scenarios, where both idle and load temperatures will be recorded. Load temperatures will be the maximum value displayed in RealTemp after running eight threads in Prime95 for one hour, and idle temperatures will be the minimum recorded value by RealTemp with no computer usage during a period of one hour. The temperature values for each of the four cores will be averaged and displayed in the graphs below. The ambient temperature is held at a constant 22.5 °C throughout testing of the NZXT Havik 140, as well as the comparison units. All the data shown in the graphs below is in degrees Celsius. The included thermal paste from NZXT will be used during testing and thermal pastes on other heatsinks from their respective manufacturers will be used. The fans on each cooler will be run at full speed for these tests.

Well, I can definitely say that the results from the NZXT Havik 140 are very impressive! In every test it remained second only to the Noctua NH-D14, which still remains undefeated. I won't say much more here, and I'll save the rest for the conclusion.
