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. The next charts show standardized fan placement, also a new set of charts for us. 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. We didn’t rewrite our entire review around this change, but added in two charts to cover it where necessary. 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. Unless you're running a 10900k on air I don't think you'll have a problem cooling those components in an h510. All rights reserved. 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 … The HDD cage underneath the PSU shroud is movable and removable, unchanged from the H500 but still a feature worth praising. The best mid-tower case offers a comfortable fit for all but the most extravagant gaming PCs. We plan to do some more testing with them soon, but for the purposes of this review we bypassed the smart device completely and controlled fan speed via the motherboard as usual. 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 cases dont have the very good airflow. 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. 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. Quite frankly I really need some help. We moderate comments on a ~24~48 hour cycle. It's not the best airflow case, but people who want that are looking at mesh cases anyway, not the h510. NZXT must be proud of the new H510 Elite, because they sent us two identical ones. [–]Jesse0449 1 point2 points3 points 1 day ago (0 children). NZXT gaming PC building solutions include computer cases, water cooling fans, PC lighting kits and much more. And the h510 lacks a good arrangement of exhaust. 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. 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. Since the H510 Elite is already configured this way, the only difference from stock is the type of fan. Not NZXT. That’s because it’s not the fans that matter, ultimately, it’s the fan placement and the airpath. Despite the defect, the fan tray is still a good feature and easy to work with. For the purposes of this review, we’re going to pretend no other cases named H500 exist. Here are some photos. Filters. © 2021 reddit inc. All rights reserved. The H510 Elite does well here when standardized, placing similarly to the fine mesh on the Cooler Master NR600. Please open all of them. 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. There will be some delay after submitting a comment. 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. 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. Or am I looking at the wrong sites? 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. The over-time data is aggregated and will occasionally be compiled into charts, if interesting or relevant. We’ll discuss the thermal results in a moment, but the noise was also affected. Audio Device(s) No need. Host, Test Lead: Steve BurkeTesting, Editorial: Patrick LathanVideo: Andrew Coleman, Josh Svoboda. The H510 Elite also includes the NZXT Smart Device 2, powering the built-in RGB light strip and case fans. 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. REDDIT and the ALIEN Logo are registered trademarks of reddit inc. π Rendered by PID 5488 on r2-app-0a7361f089168b0ce at 2021-01-09 05:01:47.326449+00:00 running d8cca48 country code: IT. 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. This is what I screwed the Mobo into (this is just one, there are a few more). 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. It’s possible that other users with other components and configurations might not experience the weird noises we did. I was looking at bios settings and noticed Qfan had things on PWM, DC and Auto. The design and construction of the case remain good. Anyway, we only have two charts with the updated config -- those will be the standalone H510 charts. 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. 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. The NZXT H510 Elite is a drop-dead gorgeous mid-tower PC case. If we say H500, we mean the NZXT H500. 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. 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. [–]lizzpop2003 0 points1 point2 points 1 day ago (0 children). Don’t do it. Dad & son, with help from reddit. Next with GPU torture thermals only, GPU torture temperature averaged 58.4 degrees over ambient, or 50.6C dT with the standardized Noctua fans. 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. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy. Build HelpAbout NZT H510 heat (self.buildapc). 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. 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. 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. The equilibrium performance is averaged to create the below charts. We’ve never seen a fall this hard from removing the front panel. The Elite adds a vertical GPU mount to the side of the normal horizontal ones present in the H500 and the H510. Most that do well, though, still have a mesh panel somewhere. 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. 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. 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 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. For performance, airflow is decent enough for even more power-hungry builds. … 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. That’s good for users, but obviously means that we have to modify our review now since the product has changed. 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. 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. Before diving in, just a quick reminder that we published an update to our case testing methodology back in June. 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. Thermal benchmarking is conducted for 1400 seconds (23 minutes), a period we've determined sufficient for achieving equilibrium. 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. Get an ad-free experience with special benefits, and directly support Reddit. GamersNexus.net is Owned, Operated, & Maintained by GamersNexus, LLC. Also, the plastic bag that came with my case (NZXT H510) only has ONE standoff which is black coloured (not brass). It won't run super hot with midrange hardware in it. This will pull cool air in the Card slots that can help cool the GPU. 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. 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. If you want a really good airflow case with looks to match go with the meshify series of cases. This is where we don’t particularly like this approach to testing, as discussed in previous content. 4 case fans (2 for your intake AIO and 1 top + 1 rear exhaust) should do just fine. We ran tests with the case noise normalized to 36dBA, without the front panel, and with our standardized fan layout. Like the CPU temperatures, 58.4 degrees is on the warm side of the comparative chart, right next to the original Define S2. use the following search parameters to narrow your results: Please keep in mind that we are here to help you build a computer, not to build it for you. 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. Also has some clearance issues. 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. It's one of the best cases for the price, good quality material and innovative features like a cable shroud. 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. 75Hz: Case: Corsair 450D High Air Flow. Load testing is conducted using Prime95 LFFTs and Kombustor “FurMark” stress testing simultaneously. Not many 970 VS 3070 comparisons out there, so I did one. The H510 Elite has all of the same fitment capabilities of the previous H500 series chassis. The Smart Device uses a USB 2.0 header for communication with the motherboard. Copyright © 2021 GamersNexus, LLC. Featured Build. 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 has a good airflow along with better looking than the meshify and p400s. 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). 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. The turbulent noise forced us to push fan speeds down further for the H510 Elite than we otherwise would have. These cases are built more around the looks rather than performance. 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. NZXT H510 There\'s the NZXT H510, which for lack of a better word is the base model. 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 Customers should strongly consider buying one of those instead and using the extra $90-$100 to choose their own fans or LEDs. The rest of the review will be unedited to reflect our original opinions and original data before NZXT’s change. We just want to note that, again, it’s really not the best way to compare things, but it’s commonly requested. 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. FireStrike Extreme is next, basically a gaming workload representation for a realistic look at thermals. 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. For the H510 Elite, we don’t see that result because the case starts with a positive pressure configuration. 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. 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. Filters Sort. The standardized fan layout is three Noctua fans we’ve reserved for case testing, two 140mm front intake and one 120mm exhaust. However, with the update, you will find various subtle but mostly justified changes that certainly warrant a new model number. Even still, the H510 Elite is warmer than everything else, including the original H500. I live in a pretty hot city and knowing that i was thinking about buying a water cooler for it. Thank you to everyone for helping me with my first PC build! GPU thermals with standardized fans gets tricky. The change is about 4 degrees. Again, they’re functionally identical, just different. The NZXT H510 Elite is … We still feel pretty good about NZXT’s stock fans, but the Noctua fans we use for testing definitely have the edge, and are less prone to causing whatever turbulence was making so much noise. The H510 Elite manages to be one of the worst cases we’ve tested for gaming thermals. 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. Our noise-normalized chart is still limited, but 63.1 degrees dT pushes the H510 Elite past the Bitfenix Enso, our previous hottest case. Water cooling will make your GPU hotter in this case. 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. All; Yes; No; CPU. The refreshed NZXT 510i is a compact mid-tower that offers both style and incredible organization for PC builders on the market for a new case. 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. Are video cards grossly overprices in Germany right now? 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. Other than that there is literally nothing else. That’s definitely better, but the case overall still has a lot of room for improvement. Unfortunately, it’s not much better than the stock H500, which averaged 61 degrees dT. My sons build uses an h510. 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. 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. GPU thermals changed to 54.4 degrees with the update, down from 58.4 originally. 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 … That’s not surprising, really, seeing how the Enso is a scale model of the heat death of the universe. However, it\'s still very much The best source for tech and gaming news, hardware reviews and daily fix of tech. NZXT was established in 2004 in Los Angeles, California (USA). and join one of thousands of communities. 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 cant remember exactly what hardware he has in there, but it's all air cooled, too. Completed Builds Using NZXT H510 ATX Mid Tower Case. The video card is configured to run at 55% fan speed at all times. No bias but the NZXT has better build quality and premium feel than the other cases. For noise normalized testing we had all the case fans set to 50% speed, which was slow enough that they quieted down. NZXT H510 Elite ATX Mid Tower Case. Only get this case if you plan to use the stock fan config, an an air cooler for the CPU, and moderate needs. NZXT N7 Z370 Black: Cooling: Cooler Master 240 RGB AIO / Stock: Memory: Thermaltake Toughram 16GB 4400MHz DDR4 or Gigabyte 16GB 3600MHz DDR4 or Adata 8GB 2133Mhz DDR4: Video Card(s) Asus Dual 1060 6GB: Storage: Kingston A2000 512Gb NVME: Display(s) AOC 24" Freesync 1m.s. That's just to say I think you will be fine with aio or watercooled set up. Comparative thermals are next for GPUs. 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. This shows the value for the dollar when eliminating the ability for a case to brute-force its performance to the top. First PC build complete! 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. I took the front glass panel off during my Time Spy benches and the peak temp dropped from 85c to 58c. The FP connections have been consolidated into one plug, which makes sense now that motherboard manufacturers have almost completely standardized the front panel pinout. He played for his college esports team last semester and never had any heat issues, really. [–]theNightblade 0 points1 point2 points 1 day ago (0 children). H510, hands down. This includes 3.5" drives which can mount up to 2+1 or 2.5 with the same 2+1 fitment. 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. Looks good, but is pretty expensive and has crappy airflow. A splitter is included in case of non-standard pinouts. We’ll start our thermals with just the NZXT H500 series in torture CPU tests, then move to comparative tests versus other cases. 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. Plus it's more forward looking with its mic/headphone combo (I wish I have this) and USB type-C in front-panel. 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. 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. 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. No submissions about memes, jokes, meta, or hypothetical / dream builds. NZXT H510i Tower Case Review. 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. 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. NZXT has been overtightening its screws for years, at this point, since before the S340. 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. Airflow is complex. 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. Front I/O is simplified from the original H500. 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. 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 extra 120mm fan brings CPU temperature down to 56.5 degrees, which is similar to our 3-fan standardized config. Last modified on August 08, 2019 at 6:22 pm, Fractal Meshify 2 XL Large Case Review: "E-ATX" / SSI-EEB Enclosure, HW News - NZXT "Safety Issue," GPU Availability, AMD MI100 GPU , NVIDIA A100 80GB, Corsair 4000D & 4000D Airflow Case Reviews: Thermals, Noise, & Build Quality. At what price point does it go from pretty good dollar value to overkill. That's not to say you can't fit a whole lot into a mid-tower, either. The other 2 are built with inferior materials and are more cramped, interior space wise. 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. So we all know that the NZXT H510 chose aesthetic over airflow. 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. If it fits your needs and wants then get it. 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. 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. Is a apu better than cpu and gpu on a budget of a $300 pc build? 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. Not good in this one. The H510 Elite also includes the NZXT Smart Device V2, powering the built-in RGB light strips and case fans. En effet, ce boîtier intègre un. CPU thermals have the 510 Elite in last place, which is obviously a sub-optimal placement for a product. [–]Jesse0449 1 point2 points3 points 1 day ago (1 child). NZXT can make this case work -- it does much better in GPU thermals when standardized than its stock results would lead you to believe. Filters. Custom Crafted. Before we reviewed the original H500, NZXT went out of its way to tell us that the dual-fan, dual-exhaust configuration would work better than we expected, and NZXT was right. Price $ Loading... $ Published. 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. We don’t like companies to get into the habit of making changes after sending out review samples, but it’s still better than shipping a worse product. 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. [–]OttawaDog 0 points1 point2 points 1 day ago (0 children). Closing Thoughts. The USB type A port on the Elite is 3.1 Gen 1, the same kind as on the H500, and it uses the same full-size USB 3 header on the motherboard end--it just leads to one type A port instead of two. Renders of the base model H510 (which doesn’t come configured with intake fans) don’t show this shield. 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. , PC lighting kits and much more remain good we didn ’ t configured!
