NZXT H510 Elite Review

Up Close:  Exterior continued

The upper part of the rear of the Elite has mounts for a 120mm fan, with one non illuminating fan fitted.  Personally we think this is a bit of a shame, as with a case with such excellent aesthetics, it would have been naive to have this fan identical to the front intake units.

Lower down we find 7 vented PCI covers, with an addition 2 in the vertical position to enable show off mounting of GPUs.  With the case having a solid glass side panel severely restricting airflow, we're not wholly convinced that this would be a good idea unless you've water-cooled your GPU.

Flipping the Elite over we can see that it sits on four quite tall rubber capped feet, which unless you sit the case on a carpet (please don't) will enable reasonable airflow from underneath.  At the rear of the case there is also a slide out filter for the PSU area.

The front of the case allows access to the underside of the 3.5" drive cage, enabling it to be moved or even removed to make way for a small reservoir and pump.  There's also a small filtered vent cover that can only be removed when the side panel is off.

I know there is a lot of tempered glass on this case but it does seem expensive. I'd be concerned about the amount of air those front fans would have access to.
I fully agree though great looking case but missing quite a few features for the price. Nice reviewQuote

I am sorry but NZXT needs to offer more for the money that they want for this case. No rubber dampeners, 120mm rear, no filter on top fan hole, ty CAM software required if you want to use the controller ( rip that junk out and get something else...ANYTHING else will be loads better ) improper front air holes...all of this just for a piece of glass on the front.



Sorry NZXT but this case just screams WE ARE GREEDY AND WILL GIVE YOU MINIMAL STUFF WHILE ASKING FOR MORE $$$!!!!


Even my S340 Elite is far superior to this thing. Quite disappointing indeed. Quote

I'd say take the glass of and it's a £50 case really looks like a budget case with glass to make it look goodQuote
