    The Havik 120 also has a universal mounting system that allows the user to mount it up to AMD AM2/AM3 and all Intel LGA sockets. NZXT uses rubber mounts for the fan that attach like metal spring clips. When using these for the first time putting them on can be annoying, but are they easier to take off. NZXT also provides two Y power cables; black is for full speed, white is reduced speed.

    Being the Havik 120 is single tower cooler it is narrow, so the fins of the cooler are clear of the RAM slots. With the fans installed though, the first RAM slot is covered.
