terrible airflow 

get a p300a 

or a 400a or a meshify c.


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

It has really bad airflow. I wouldn’t get it.

Do you like any of the following?:

  • Fractal design meshify c
  • Phanteks p300a
  • phanteks p400a (digital or not)
  • corsair 275r

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Quote or tag me so I can see your response

i would personally avoid it.

It's not terrible in terms of airflow but it's also not great either.

 

If you like the look of the H510 but need better airflow, look at the NR600. Similar aesthetic but unlike the H510, the NR600 is one of the best cases in terms of how much it breathes.

Acceptable airflow, and really easy to build inside. I highly suggest purchasing an extra fan so that you can have 2 intake and one exhaust.

 

Did a build in one somewhat recently, with a Ryzen 5 3600 and RTX 2070. Temps are pretty reasonable across the board.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

it will be a whole lot better in terms of airflow 

if your dead set on the 510 for looks or a specific feature i guess go for that but do note that airflow is not its strongest thing.

do you happen to know anything about the fractal design focus g, that was the other one that i was looking at, specifically ease of building inside, because that was half of why i wanted the h510

Focus G has a very large mesh on the front, for some pretty good airflow. Reasonably spacious as well, it's a case that I've recommended a few times.

 

Similar story, only comes with 2 fans.

depends on what you want to prioritize the h510 is ok since it does have a side vent in the front but ofc its not going to be as good as a mesh front case like the focus g

Likely you heard about the 275R Airflow, which is the version with the vented front panel.
