I am personally a fan of inverted color schemes and have been for years. When NZXT decided they would invert the current default of black for computer components, I was elated. In fact, the NZXT Phantom is the case I want for my personal rig with the NZXT Hale90 to match. Now I have the option to match the CPU cooler as well with a NZXT Havik 140.

Setting aside my obvious bias for white components with black trim, this cooler has several things going for it. The 100% copper base, aluminum fins, and 6 copper 6mm heatpipes (nickel plated) will be accompanied by two of NZXT newest fans (140mm size). These fans can push 90.3 CFM while producing only 25 to 35 dBA.

The Havik 140 will be priced at $74.99 MSRP putting it in direct competition with the best air cooling solutions on the market. If they think the Havik 140 should be priced at $74.99, I would not be surprised if it performs better than most of the coolers in the same price range.
