Has anyone done hardline custom water cooling for the NZXT H510 (or the H500, pretty sure the only difference is the front panel)? The H510 is the case ive got and I want to do a hardline custom loop (using copper pipe), but im not sure if its feasible with the size of the case and my current components. In particular my graphics card (5700xt Sapphire Nitro+) is quite large compared to the case, and im not sure of the clearance. If anyone has any pictures or links to videos of people who have done this i'd appreciate it, seeing how others have done this (if many people have) would be pretty helpful to my own efforts to plan a loop.

The H510 Elite has a glass panel. H510 and H500 have solid panels. The only difference between the H500 and H510 is USB-C.

I can't speak for the case, but in terms of the 5700xt Sapphire Nitro+ version the actual pcb is significantly shorter than the included cooler so once you slap a waterblock on it you should be shorter in length overall. I was only looking at the Alphacool block, not sure what else there is available for that model. It would probably be easier to just sell it and pick up a liquid devil 5700xt from powercolour if you aren't comfortable dicking around with thermal pads etc.

 

Depending on what tools you're using you should be able to make fairly tight turns with copper without incurring significant flow restrictions, routing is the tricky part. I know in the H700 I'll need to grab some offset style fittings to make things more tidy, the 360mm radiator access gets pretty tight with an exhaust fan installed.
