Prior to load testing, we collect idle temperature results for ten minutes to determine the unloaded cooling performance of a case's fans and air channels. Our noise-normalized chart is still limited, but 63.1 degrees dT pushes the H510 Elite past the Bitfenix Enso, our previous hottest case. If we say H500, we mean the NZXT H500. Coming from a guy who owns a h710 and had to take the front panel off to drop my temps. Our only concrete complaint about the device so far (other than increasing the cost of the case) is that it’s mounted so that the latches on the LED plugs are underneath, against the motherboard tray, so that it’s difficult to disconnect any cables from it. We’ll discuss the thermal results in a moment, but the noise was also affected. This will pull cool air in the Card slots that can help cool the GPU. Removing the front panel helped almost as dramatically as it did with the CPU thermals, dropping to 48.3 degrees from 58.4 degrees stock -- a reduction of about 10 degrees. However, with the update, you will find various subtle but mostly justified changes that certainly warrant a new model number. I cant remember exactly what hardware he has in there, but it's all air cooled, too. NZXT H510 There\'s the NZXT H510, which for lack of a better word is the base model. There are two ways to look at this result: the H500 and H510 (non-Elite) only have two rear fans and don’t allow the front panel to be removed at all, so removing the front panel of the H510 Elite and pointing out how much it limits the three good-quality stock fans feels like punishing the case for positive features NZXT has added. I live in a pretty hot city and knowing that i was thinking about buying a water cooler for it. That’s because it’s not the fans that matter, ultimately, it’s the fan placement and the airpath. This may be an issue with the fan blade design or a combination of the case and the fans, but the turbulent behavior does create an unsteady noise, which most users find more annoying than a loud, predictable noise. We did replace the stock fans with some thermaltake Riing fans I had left over from my PC build (I got a really good deal on a bulk order so i bought 6 more than i actually needed), but it runs excellently and averages temps just a little higher than my build at full load. This includes 3.5" drives which can mount up to 2+1 or 2.5 with the same 2+1 fitment. It has poor airflow from the front, so the standard setup is to run in Negative pressure with both fans (rear and top) acting as exhaust. Don’t do it. We get the feeling the thought process for the Elite moved backwards, from “we need a premium version of this case” to “we need to put more tempered glass in” to “we need to put some RGB fans behind this tempered glass.” Therefore it has two 140mm Aer RGB 2 intake fans in the front and one 120mm Aer F120 exhaust fan in the rear, the usual case fan layout, but in a case with unusually limited front ventilation. He played for his college esports team last semester and never had any heat issues, really. Anyone else really struggle with finding a case they like/works for their purpose? As such, NZXT has modified its listing and now offers an extra 120mm exhaust fan (free for those who already bought the case) with the enclosure. Water cooling will make your GPU hotter in this case. 4 case fans (2 for your intake AIO and 1 top + 1 rear exhaust) should do just fine. Obviously the chassis wasn’t originally meant to support vertical GPU mounting, so the layout is a little tricky--installing a GPU in the normal horizontal slots requires removing the frame that holds the vertical slots and then replacing it afterwards. I took the front glass panel off during my Time Spy benches and the peak temp dropped from 85c to 58c. NZXT H510 - CA-H510B-BR - Compact ATX Mid-Tower PC Gaming Case - Black/Red & Seagate Barracuda 2TB Internal Hard Drive HDD – 3.5 Inch SATA 6Gb/s 7200 RPM 256MB Cache – Frustration Free Packaging 5.0 out of 5 stars 8 This doesn’t really change the review on the whole as it isn’t a massive shift, but it’s still important to note. No bias but the NZXT has better build quality and premium feel than the other cases. We didn’t go beyond the standard batch of tests for this one; for more fan configurations, check our original H500 review, since the chassis is effectively identical. These cases are built more around the looks rather than performance. The H510 Elite has a combined mic/headphone jack, one USB C 3.1 Gen 2 port, one USB A port, and the combined power button/power LED/HDD LED. If it fits your needs and wants then get it. It wasn’t amazing, but it did the job at least as well as any other arrangement of the two stock fans we could come up with -- at least, when considering the GPU part of the equation. Is a apu better than cpu and gpu on a budget of a $300 pc build? First PC build complete! That’s not surprising, really, seeing how the Enso is a scale model of the heat death of the universe. It's one of the best cases for the price, good quality material and innovative features like a cable shroud. Part of the reason is that we mounted the standardized fans on the inside of the fan tray for the H500 to allow as much room as possible between the fans and the front panel, but we mounted them in front of the tray in the H510 Elite. Baseline for our CPU during the torture test was 59.1 degrees Celsius dT over ambient, which lowered to 55.9 degrees dT with standardized fans. At what price point does it go from pretty good dollar value to overkill. A three-ish degree difference isn’t too bad considering that this test replaced the stock case fans 1:1 with higher quality Noctua fans; the fans NZXT is packing in with the case are good enough to keep, from these findings. Airflow is complex. This latter test, the standardized one, has several flaws that made us resist adopting the testing, but too many viewers requested it and so we added it. Even still, the H510 Elite is warmer than everything else, including the original H500. Note also that we had written and filmed this about 3 weeks prior to publishing, but notified NZXT in between writing and now that we had found issues with thermals in the case. This is what I screwed the Mobo into (this is just one, there are a few more). NZXT H510 Elite ATX Mid Tower Case. The H510 has a good airflow along with better looking than the meshify and p400s. No submissions about hardware news, rumors, or reviews, No submissions about sales, deals or unauthorized giveaways, No submissions about retailer or customer service experiences, No submission titles that are all-caps, clickbait, PSAs, or pro-tips. Even extremely well-ventilated cases will show improvement with the front panel removed, but we test it to see how close the stock case configuration matches an ideal scenario without filters or glass in the way. NZXT gaming PC building solutions include computer cases, water cooling fans, PC lighting kits and much more. Price $ Loading... $ Published. Noise-normalizing the fans by limiting them to 50% speed bumped CPU dT up to 63.1 degrees over ambient, but still not so high that it was forced to throttle. There’s a filtered gap under the front panel that means the GPU theoretically has a little more access to cool air than the CPU, but the front panel is still a huge obstacle to airflow. Please open all of them. I was looking at bios settings and noticed Qfan had things on PWM, DC and Auto. The FP connections have been consolidated into one plug, which makes sense now that motherboard manufacturers have almost completely standardized the front panel pinout. The H510 Elite does well here when standardized, placing similarly to the fine mesh on the Cooler Master NR600. Well-engineered airflow, removable radiator mounting bracket, multiple fan filters, vertical GPU mount, a front panel USB-C connector, and an all-steel and tempered glass construction are just some of the key features you'll get. CPU thermals have the 510 Elite in last place, which is obviously a sub-optimal placement for a product. That means we also skipped all case and fan LEDs, since they’re controlled by the smart device which is in turn controlled by NZXT’s CAM software.

Standardizing the fans kept the CPU thermals in the H510 Elite well below the Enso in temperatures, at 56 to 67 degrees over ambient, so the airflow isn’t inherently worse in the Elite--it’s just loud. 60.2 degrees GPU dT average during the Firestrike Extreme stress test is warmer than the torture test results, and even higher relative to the other cases than the torture result was. The video card is configured to run at 55% fan speed at all times. Here are some photos.

The NZXT H510i may look like the H500i at first sight, but this is just the natural result of an extremely good, solid design mentality as the case still looks as great as ever. I am going to but my first PC and i was thinking about choosing NZXT H510 for my case (because i find it beautiful and without RGB) but saw a lot of complains about its airflow. If you want a really good airflow case with looks to match go with the meshify series of cases. We heard loud gusts of turbulence that had us double-checking our charts to make sure the fan speeds were locked, and this noise persisted even with the fans running below max speed. The standardized fan layout is three Noctua fans we’ve reserved for case testing, two 140mm front intake and one 120mm exhaust. The rest of the review will be unedited to reflect our original opinions and original data before NZXT’s change. Good pc, terrible performance (please help??). Comparatively, 59.1 degrees Celsius is relatively warm, at the upper-end of the cases we’ve tested that haven’t gone completely out of control thermally. It won't run super hot with midrange hardware in it. Looks good, but is pretty expensive and has crappy airflow. So, the water cooler will be enough for H510 or should I choose other case (or other fans to replace the ones that comes in the box) with better thermal?I'm looking for something that can run cool but mostly: i want something for quiet since i don't leave alone and fans noise kinda bothers me and other people. The extra 120mm fan brings CPU temperature down to 56.5 degrees, which is similar to our 3-fan standardized config. We’ve never seen a fall this hard from removing the front panel. The Smart Device uses a USB 2.0 header for communication with the motherboard. Most that do well, though, still have a mesh panel somewhere. The original had an HDD activity light, a mic jack, a headphone jack, two USB type-A connectors split from a USB 3.0 header, and the power button/LED. NZXT must be proud of the new H510 Elite, because they sent us two identical ones. The SSD trays work the same way they did in the H500, clipping into either the ventilated surface of the PSU shroud or hidden away behind the motherboard tray. Currently my PC is doing fine with only 2 fans + the cpu cooler but I want to make some big changes to my computer (Possible a Ryzen 7 and a 2060) which will bring alot more heat from what I have now. We’ve complained a little about combining mic/headphone jacks in the past, but NZXT has included an adapter cable that splits into two normal jacks. We lock GPU fan speed to 25% speed for the CPU render instead of 55% as we do for the others, so that there’s a minimum of interference with CPU thermals in a realistic CPU-only workload like Blender. We moderate comments on a ~24~48 hour cycle. Build HelpAbout NZT H510 heat (self.buildapc). Without the extreme workload of those tests, the intake fans do a passable job at getting enough cool air in to the GPU, although it still runs warmer than the H500’s 26.7dT average. We thought the H500 was a good buy at $70, and from what we’ve seen of the H510 it probably will be too--or $80, since that’s MSRP. Before diving in, just a quick reminder that we published an update to our case testing methodology back in June. All rights reserved. For performance, airflow is decent enough for even more power-hungry builds. The H510 Elite is similar to the H510, but includes the Smart Device 2 controller, 2 vertical GPU expansion slots, and 2 NZXT AER RGB 2 case fans. It’s possible that other users with other components and configurations might not experience the weird noises we did. A quick note on this, too: We produced this entire review with the case as it was sent, but after notifying NZXT pre-publication of issues with thermals, the company noted that it would offer a free 120mm extra exhaust fan. Renders of the base model H510 (which doesn’t come configured with intake fans) don’t show this shield. GPU thermals land the H510 Elite at 59.5 degrees over ambient, putting it about the same as the S2 Vision RGB and not too distant from the Meshify C. Not a terrible place to be on the GPU, and that follows-up the H500’s previously interesting and surprisingly complex GPU airflow pathways. H510, hands down. I am going to but my first PC and i was thinking about choosing NZXT H510 for my case (because i find it beautiful and without RGB) but saw a lot of complains about its airflow. Next with GPU torture thermals only, GPU torture temperature averaged 58.4 degrees over ambient, or 50.6C dT with the standardized Noctua fans. En effet, ce boîtier intègre un. Anyway, we only have two charts with the updated config -- those will be the standalone H510 charts. It’s also similar to the H510i, which includes an NZXT “Smart Device.” The Elite has a tempered glass front panel, LEDs, and two RGB fans as front intake (3 fans total) as well as the USB-C port and Smart Device. Since the H510 Elite is already configured this way, the only difference from stock is the type of fan. NZXT has been overtightening its screws for years, at this point, since before the S340. Custom Crafted. The metal of the PSU shroud is also bowed out slightly where the glass hooks under it, but that may be intentional. These case fans are some of the best RGB fans on the market and expensive to buy alone, so if you like the look of them it is a good deal. Featured Build. As mentioned in the earlier edit, this section is also added in after NZXT made its changes. Blender rendering on the CPU averaged 41.2 degrees over ambient, one of the hottest temps on the chart other than really abysmal performers like the Walmart case. NZXT was established in 2004 in Los Angeles, California (USA). It’s definitely hotter than the original NZXT H500, which averaged 54.5C dT in this test and benefited from the unique airflow patterns that we already detailed in our H500 review. I live in a pretty hot city and knowing that i was thinking about buying a water cooler for it. The H510 Elite is a $170 case being launched alongside an $80 case that’s nearly identical, which itself is almost identical to a $70-$75 case that it’s replacing. Host, Test Lead: Steve BurkeTesting, Editorial: Patrick LathanVideo: Andrew Coleman, Josh Svoboda. The other 2 are built with inferior materials and are more cramped, interior space wise. Btw i pretend to use the Ggabyte Z490M Gaming X, Intel LGA 1200 mATX motherboard and a RTX 2060 (looking for upgradidng to a RTX 3060 after since its too expensive for me right now). The Elite adds a vertical GPU mount to the side of the normal horizontal ones present in the H500 and the H510. The equilibrium performance is averaged to create the below charts. If you add any intake to the front (including an AIO) it will stop the cool air coming in the card slots and the GPU will heat up. The H510 Elite allowed more heat to build up in the top of the case than the NZXT H500, which averaged 38.6C dT thanks to its two exhaust fans. [–]OttawaDog 0 points1 point2 points 1 day ago (0 children). This shows the value for the dollar when eliminating the ability for a case to brute-force its performance to the top. They’ve stuck to that stock fan arrangement with the H510, but the H510 Elite has a glass front panel and a different fan layout. If a clear front panel with RGB fans and disappointing thermal performance is an absolute necessity, buy a Level 20 MT instead and save some money. Thermal benchmarking is conducted for 1400 seconds (23 minutes), a period we've determined sufficient for achieving equilibrium. The H510 Elite manages to be one of the worst cases we’ve tested for gaming thermals. Not good in this one. For noise normalized testing we had all the case fans set to 50% speed, which was slow enough that they quieted down. We just want to note that, again, it’s really not the best way to compare things, but it’s commonly requested. Also has some clearance issues. … NZXT opened their revamped H series of cases a few months ago with the H200i, H400i, and H700i, which are all mostly differently sized versions of the same case.The H500/H500i is … 2: 6270: 25: nzxt h1 reddit. That’s the way the stock fans are installed and the way the fan tray is designed to be used in the Elite, because otherwise the tray would be between the RGB fan LEDs and the glass front panel. Nonetheless, we would like to see NZXT offer a Mesh version of the H510 so we had the opinion of maximum air flow. The H510 Elite also includes the NZXT Smart Device V2, powering the built-in RGB light strips and case fans. The NZXT H510 Elite is one of the best looking cases of 2019 but its price is also very high for a PC gaming case. We plan to test the Smart Device v2 in the future, but again, we skipped it for this review since our thermal tests rely on being able to control fan speeds. FireStrike Extreme is next, basically a gaming workload representation for a realistic look at thermals. © 2021 reddit inc. All rights reserved. That's just to say I think you will be fine with aio or watercooled set up. The NZXT H510 Elite is NZXT’s premium spin on the H500 -- no, not the Cooler Master H500, not the H500P, not the H500M, and definitely not the 500D or A500, but the NZXT H500. We’ve mentioned noise levels several times already throughout the course of this review because of the gusty turbulent noises the fans made at high speeds. In the H500, front fans caused the GPU to suck in its own exhaust from the back of the case, as the pressure setup changed from negative to positive. The case we used for review had one small manufacturing defect, where one of two thumbscrews holding the fan tray into the case had been overtorqued to the point that it deformed the chassis and made the screw tilt sideways. Copyright © 2021 GamersNexus, LLC. It's not the best airflow case, but people who want that are looking at mesh cases anyway, not the h510. The HDD cage underneath the PSU shroud is movable and removable, unchanged from the H500 but still a feature worth praising. The H510 Elite has a small metal shield blocking the gap between the top of the HDD cage and the PSU shroud, perhaps to keep the intake fans from pulling hot air from inside the PSU shroud. We’re in a unique position with this review since we were accidentally sent two identical cases, and checking the other revealed that both thumbscrews in that case had the same problem. Removing the front panel to allow the fans to actually pull some air dropped temperatures by a ridiculous amount, pushing the CPU down to 42.6 degrees over ambient, a precipitous 16.5-degree drop. The NZXT H510 Elite is … The trouble is that the H500 -- the original -- and cases like it might perform better with the stock fan configuration than with our more powerful configuration. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy. That’s good for users, but obviously means that we have to modify our review now since the product has changed. We ran tests with the case noise normalized to 36dBA, without the front panel, and with our standardized fan layout. However, it\'s still very much The best source for tech and gaming news, hardware reviews and daily fix of tech. There will be some delay after submitting a comment. Not many 970 VS 3070 comparisons out there, so I did one. Other than that there is literally nothing else. [–]theNightblade 0 points1 point2 points 1 day ago (0 children). The previous H500 case was warmer when stock, at 61 degrees, so mission accomplished in improving that, even though it was at the cost of $100 MSRP. Filters Sort. Plus it's more forward looking with its mic/headphone combo (I wish I have this) and USB type-C in front-panel. Unless you're running a 10900k on air I don't think you'll have a problem cooling those components in an h510. [–]Jesse0449 1 point2 points3 points 1 day ago (0 children). The difference is that they’re a much cheaper design: the original SSD trays were an overbuilt design assembled from multiple parts with metal springs inside, whereas the new ones are just single pieces of plastic. NZXT has found a mix of plastic snaps and captive thumbscrews that makes the case easy to open and take apart but still solid enough to be moved around; one exception to this was the front panel, which has two tiny Philips head screws locking it in place--they keep the panel firmly mounted, but it does mean a tool is required for taking off the front pane of tempered glass as opposed to the toolless disassembly of the other panels. The H510 Elite is being introduced alongside the H510, which is the same as the H500, but with a USB type-C port replacing one of the type-A ports on the front pane. On the other hand, putting a couple good intake fans in a case that can’t benefit from them is a failed attempt at a value-add. GamersNexus.net is Owned, Operated, & Maintained by GamersNexus, LLC. Comparative thermals are next for GPUs. NZXT’s H500 is a case that wasn’t top-of-the-line in thermal performance but that we liked anyway for its good build quality at a very reasonable $70 price point and reasonable thermals. Also, the plastic bag that came with my case (NZXT H510) only has ONE standoff which is black coloured (not brass). Despite the defect, the fan tray is still a good feature and easy to work with. [–]Jesse0449 1 point2 points3 points 1 day ago (1 child). The NZXT H210i is a bit of an upgrade over the more cost-conscious base model H210, all the dimensions and specs of the case are the same, but the … NZXT can make this case work -- it does much better in GPU thermals when standardized than its stock results would lead you to believe. A splitter is included in case of non-standard pinouts. That’s definitely better, but the case overall still has a lot of room for improvement.

Dad & son, with help from reddit. GPU thermals changed to 54.4 degrees with the update, down from 58.4 originally. GPU thermals with standardized fans gets tricky. We are now testing noise-normalized for cases going forward, setting all cases to the same noise level with their stock fans (since that is what they ship with), and we also test with a standardized set of fans. The turbulent noise forced us to push fan speeds down further for the H510 Elite than we otherwise would have. Filters. This is where we don’t particularly like this approach to testing, as discussed in previous content. The design and construction of the case remain good. It’s still tremendously suffocated by the rest of the configuration, as the original three-fan setup operated a 43 degree CPU temperature with no front panel, but it’s better by about 2.6 degrees Celsius. No submissions about memes, jokes, meta, or hypothetical / dream builds. Again, they’re functionally identical, just different. NZXT H510 ATX Mid Tower $61.99: Power Supply: Corsair RMx (2018) 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX $125.99: Case Fan: Corsair LL120 63 CFM 120 mm $129.99: Monitor: AOC CQ27G1 27.0" 2560x1440 144 Hz $610.99: Keyboard: Redragon K552-N Wired Standard: Mouse: Logitech G502 SE HERO Wired Optical $79.99 The change is about 4 degrees. Well-engineered airflow, removable radiator mounting bracket, multiple fan filters, vertical GPU mount, a front panel USB-C connector, and an all-steel and tempered glass construction are just some of the key features you’ll get. Quite frankly I really need some help. The best mid-tower case offers a comfortable fit for all but the most extravagant gaming PCs. Not everything needs a highly perforated front panel. Well-engineered airflow, removable radiator mounting bracket, flush tempered-glass window, multiple fan filters, and a front panel USB-C connector are just some of the key features. NZXT cases dont have the very good airflow. Are video cards grossly overprices in Germany right now? The top of the Elite looks nice and clean, but cutting I/O options isn’t a premium feature. [–]lizzpop2003 0 points1 point2 points 1 day ago (0 children). It lands between the Dark Base Pro 900 and the Lian Li Alpha 550, both good cases in their own way but neither known for their cooling capability. Thank you to everyone for helping me with my first PC build! Closing Thoughts. Completed Builds Using NZXT H510 ATX Mid Tower Case. NZXT added glass and realized it needed to fight its own decision, and rather than retool the case, this was the solution. We’ve expressed our opinion on these devices before, intended to automatically run fans at the optimal cool-and-quiet speed, but these new devices are version 2. My sons build uses an h510. That's not to say you can't fit a whole lot into a mid-tower, either. We’ll keep the build section brief, since the Elite is in many ways identical to the base H500 we reviewed more than a year ago. NZXT H510 Elite Mid-Tower Case Review NZXT's refreshed H-series lineup has landed, with the H510 Elite just below the H710i at the top of the product stack. GPU accelerated rendering in Blender averaged 28.6 degrees GPU dT, which is actually a bit more competitive than the torture and 3DMark results, around the performance level of the Meshify S2. The main differentiating feature is the NZXT Smart Device v2, and the fact that we haven’t even mentioned the existence of the H510i might give you a clue as to how we feel about that. For the purposes of this review, we’re going to pretend no other cases named H500 exist. We didn’t rewrite our entire review around this change, but added in two charts to cover it where necessary. Unfortunately, it’s not much better than the stock H500, which averaged 61 degrees dT. Audio Device(s) No need. We use USB 3.1 type A ports every day in this office, but we have yet to use a male/male USB C cable ever. At max fan speeds, we measured the case running at 45.9dBA, one of the loudest cases we’ve tested after cases with more fans, like the S2 Vision RGB and Silverstone PM01. Or am I looking at the wrong sites? Load testing is conducted using Prime95 LFFTs and Kombustor “FurMark” stress testing simultaneously. We didn’t test the vertical mount this time, but it’s as close to being flush with the glass side panel as any we’ve tested in the past, so we can tell you with certainty that installing an air-cooled GPU in this slot like the one NZXT shows on their product page is a bad idea. When leveled-out to 36dBA, we can better analyze how efficiently a case performs while all operate at a fixed noise level and without any modifications. All; Yes; No; CPU. The H510 Elite also includes the NZXT Smart Device 2, powering the built-in RGB light strip and case fans. No self-promotion, advertising or surveys, No selling, trading or requests for valuation, No excessive posting (more than one submission in 24 hours), No intentionally harmful, misleading or joke advice.

The H510 compact mid-tower ATX cases looks stunning and is an excellent value, making it the ideal case when you want a small-footprint ATX case without sacrifice. The NZXT H510 Elite is a drop-dead gorgeous mid-tower PC case. The next charts show standardized fan placement, also a new set of charts for us. NZXT H510i Tower Case Review. There are arguments to be made for software versus mechanical control for LEDs, but the bottom line is that anyone who doesn’t want to deal with the smart device or CAM can just buy an H510 and set up their own LEDs (without the tempered glass front panel). We’ll start our thermals with just the NZXT H500 series in torture CPU tests, then move to comparative tests versus other cases. The NZXT H510 Elite is NZXT’s premium spin on the H500 -- no, not the Cooler Master H500, not the H500P, not the H500M, and definitely not the 500D or A500, but the NZXT H500. For the H510 Elite, we don’t see that result because the case starts with a positive pressure configuration. The over-time data is aggregated and will occasionally be compiled into charts, if interesting or relevant. The H510 Elite has all of the same fitment capabilities of the previous H500 series chassis. The H510 Elite is near even the entirely closed-off 805 Infinity and the Cooler Master Q500L, which we fixed by drilling stepped holes into. Customers should strongly consider buying one of those instead and using the extra $90-$100 to choose their own fans or LEDs. Front I/O is simplified from the original H500.
