Nzxt h210 pc case review

NZXT HSeries PC Case is part of the most relevant PC construction community. These sophisticated cases are known for high-level construction quality, accumulation and value versus.

Today I am considering NZXT H510. This is technically a "basic" model, but this is far from the basics. The H510 is essentially updated H500, only USB Tybec, and is a series of "intermediate children". This switch is sitting between the largest cases of H710 and Miniitx H210, making it one of the most popular options of NZXT.

This NZXT update has several colors, special editions and alternative models, with more expensive "elite" and "I" models with RGB fans and updated fan controllers.

Anyway, let's take a look at what makes this excellent case is excellent.

updated case NZXT H510 installed

NZXT H510 refreshing case with black, black and granular matte finish. Of course, this texture can attract dirt, you can often fight to hide scratches, but it is much better than the brilliant alternative so that it is obtained in many cases. The Elite model has an improved glass front to implement the RGB fan closed, but this version is a clean and not clean panel that cleans the class.

Being here is the fan ventilation in one of the 120 mm fans, which is as great as possible here that can enter the fans sector. Set the standard expansion slots of seven and remove the double slot and the tactile support from the plate for vertical GPU bracket.

From that, there is almost no conversation behind the sensation of premiums.

Despite being very simple, it is a sharp picture It occupied instantaneously NZXT case with ventilation of angles and small slips. The lower glass panel is slightly different from other cases, and the lower quarter is actually part of the PSU cover, and the glass is completely separate.

When the panel rises with relative ease, if it passes through the thumb thread, it is insufficient, she crushed the skin, so please take the driver. Thanks to the thrust locking mechanism, the mitigated glass side should not fall, and be careful after that! The rear panel has a small amount of ventilation in front. This will take out the configuration of air pressure.

clean, futffopose and cash. NZXT Classic.

The upper part follows the remaining part of the design of the box. It is minimal. This is a similar design option, a 120 mm fan is displayed only towards the back of the upper part. Unfortunately, the only grip I had with the H510 was unfortunately at the top of the case. The ventilation of the rear fan has tonal amounts of curves compared to the remaining part when it enters. Now, it is moving if I can not take away and you can not take away, but I had to find a problem with the nearby face H510.

I really do not really affect me personally, but it is an entry / exit port on the front panel. Or lack of that.

These are composed of:

Now, I was able to affirm that this was a sufficient port on the front, and continues the general minimalist design of the case. NZXT is far from stupid, so you have a lot for your money in HSeries, for example, the audio splitter Jack, but I liked wanting to see some additional ports here will be.

If you are familiar with the H500, there is nothing that surprises you with this update. Anyway, the interior is a logical design and an incredible amount for the average, or at least how it feels.

You can not get clippings with rubber buttonholes in the NZXT box, but instead there is a large cable routing slot that is skillfully disguised by the NZXT commercial brand cable bar. Cable bars usually have a contrast color if you select one of the models that is a black jet and a socially pleasant feature. That is said, not only is he looking at the offer here. The cable bars are especially hidden from cables, but they also work as spaces to attach deposits for water cooler. You can also delete this cable bar completely. Well played NZXT.

For water cooling systems, the perforated part of the shield is one of three positions where res can be installed. The GPU PSU also has a convenient cutout, which saves you some space on your back and generally keeps the internal structure clean. Type

comes with a

2 x 124 Aer fan Experienced builders probably don't care about them, And if you are one of them, they can be easily removed entirely. That being said, I don't need tools to manage PC cables, and if I want to speed up the process, I don't need a cable tie. The system works on the back and encourages new builders to test and manage cables, so play it fair, I'm a fan.

Another major issue was the brilliant decision to eventually wrap all FP cables in one connector. This is because the motherboard is standardizing FP, so the sausage finger makers are happy.

Elsewhere, we see two 2.5-inch SSD brackets unchanged from the H500, and there are plenty of cable tie-down points to avoid the need for a tie-down base.

Finally, at the lower back, we can see the hard drive cage, which should be hidden. Of course, the hard drive tray can be moved forward or backward or removed entirely. The

NZXT chassis is never lacking in features, but overall, it provides PC builders with a high-quality case that simplifies the build process. The iconic H-series case is one of the cleanest-looking devices on the market, and the H510 still carries the same charming elements that we saw on the H500.

Simple Design - Everything about the H510s' sleek appearance is calculated and concise. When paired with unbroken tempered glass panels, the professional look looks great. In addition, the cable poles and PSU covers are a great help in keeping the interior flawless, making inexperienced builders proud.

Airflow: The case is professionally designed, and the two 120mm Aer fans attached to the case work together to produce excellent airflow. It’s worth noting that when it comes to this out-of-the-box airflow setting, you might expect dust to collect in unwanted spaces throughout the chassis, so be prepared. In any case, there are many removable dust filters and a bracket to simplify the installation of the radiator.

USBC-This type of connector is very common in cases these days, but when you consider the price, this is another feature that makes it worth the money. The TypeC connector is located on the front panel, which means you can easily connect a mobile phone or a new gaming headset without having to drag the shell from below the desktop.

The entire NZXT H510 is fully functional, and its success is attributed to the thoughtful design, ready for this classic long list of updates.

These are the ins and outs of the NZXT H510, it is one of the cleanest cases today. This basic model is still excellent value for money, and I found the "elite" version to be a bit expensive and only requires an additional fan and another tempered glass panel, but each is independent.

Like its predecessor, H510 is a sturdy housing, well-made, and reliable materials are always used. If you want to add additional AIOs or fans, you should definitely consider H510i. From water cooling to inexpensive construction, everything in this NZXT case looks great, in fact it's the center tower for everyone.

NZXT is well suited for beginners and seasoned builders, but what's the next upgrade to your case? Go to the WePC community and share with us the next chassis you build. One of the main attractions of the

NZXT H510 is its compact design, which makes it a perfect chassis and does not take up space in small computer rooms. But it is this feature that has caused a lot of confusion about what type of computer case it is.

Well, despite the smaller size of the NZXT H510, it is still technically classified as an ATX mid-tower form factor.

is officially sold as the "compact ATX central tower", NZXT uses smart design to reduce expansion without sacrificing too much space. The

H510 is also equipped with compact space-saving features, such as detachable cable poles and GPU power-off, so even if it is smaller, you still have plenty of room to experiment with its construction.

Don't let the small size fool you. This little generator has 15 inches of graphics card space and capacity for four fans, which can accommodate some very powerful systems.

Yes, you can technically install a 280mm radiator on the NZXT H510, but many people are struggling with this task. The problem with

seems to be that although its 280mm radiator will be installed in the H510, everything seems too comfortable. Part of the reason for the

is that the H510 only provides 60mm of clearance for the front radiator, which means the I / O connectors and cables are too close to comfort.

Some people even had to modify the H510 bracket to prevent the top edge from coming into contact with the radiator, but these are isolated cases.

In most cases, as long as you install the H510 in the correct direction, a 280 mm radiator will fit perfectly.

If you like more space, we recommend you

Of course, the H510 is compatible with these smaller motherboards, but it's still roomy enough that even when stuffed with a box full of gear, they seem a bit missing and inappropriate. The full-size

ATX motherboard is 12 inches wide and 9.5 inches deep. NZXT H510 is 18.1 inches long and 16.8 inches deep, so there is enough room to accommodate a full ATX motherboard.

Having said that, nothing bigger than the standard ATX form factor cannot be incorporated into the H510 in any functional way. If you have a monster dual-processor EATX build, then this is not your case. You will most likely need to invest in a complete tower box to build this caliber. The

NZXT H510 has quite good airflow, because the only ventilation in the entire chassis is the thin plate holes drilled in a single panel. This is not the best, but it is definitely acceptable. The

H510 is pre-installed with two Aer F120mm fans. As long as they are not blocked, they can fully control the heat dissipation of low- and medium-power systems.

Only when you plan to overclock or build something more powerful, you may need to make some after-sales purchases. The replacement

fans are very good, so it is unlikely that you will need to replace them with a more efficient design. What you need to do is use an additional double fan capacity to increase the airflow. The

combined with a pair of front air intakes will definitely keep almost every build good and cool, especially since the H510 can support a larger 140mm fan when needed.

In most cases, the chassis of the NZXT showed considerable airflow, but there were also isolated cases where the company was criticized for poorly designed vents.

For example, many builders do not like that the H510 only has a ventilation function in a small part of the right side panel because it reduces the air pressure. When a front fan is installed, these vents can also be blocked because they are close to the front panel.

As we have already mentioned, this does not mean that the airflow of the H510 is not good, but it is not specially optimized, but it should not be considered an NZXT error. The smaller the

case, the more difficult it is to produce high-quality airflow, and the H510 is one of the smallest ATX cases on the market.

To further demonstrate that NZXT is capable of manufacturing a case with good airflow, you just need to look at H710. It is spacious, very popular and very cool.

Kraken X63 is a 280mm radiator, as we have already mentioned, the NZXT H510 supports a radiator of this size, but 280 is the limit of its capacity.

There is a lot of confusion about this special combination, because the H510 user manual seems to state that the case is incompatible with the X63, while the online specs say otherwise.

As we've seen many H510 builds using Kraken X63, we think it's safe to say you should trust the online specs and keep building.

However, it is important to remember that even if the Kraken X63 is technically suitable for the H510, it does not have much flexibility in installation.

only fits one way, and that's the top tube. Turn it over and the tube will collide with the cable management rod, displacing the screw holes.

Some third-party RTX 3080s are great graphics cards, which is not surprising to say the least. Nvidia 3080 is a very powerful graphics unit, it needs an expanding heat sink and cooling system to prevent them from overheating.

The good news is that although the H510 is an absolutely compact case, according to NZXT's HSeries / Nvidia compatibility guidelines, it can fit most third-party 3080 iterations-long live! The

list refers to Founder Edition, ASUS ROG Strix and TUF, MSI Gaming X Trio and Ventis, especially PNY 3080. So if you use one of these graphics cards wholeheartedly, then you can start! The

H510 has 15 inches of graphics card spare space, while the 3080’s maximum capacity is often around 12.5 inches, depending on the model. Even with the heat sink installed, you should still have about 13.5 inches of free space to use the powerful GPU to enhance your build.
