Case similar to the nzxt h510

I am looking for a case with good aesthetics and airflow (which looks similar to the nzxt h510) and a minimalist look for around $70-80. Any suggestions?

Is there a particular reason you don't want the NZXT H510? Also, do you want a black or white case? I know the H510 comes in both colors so I can't go off of that.

I mostly speak from my own past experience from similar problems. My solution may not work for you, but I'll always try my best to help as much as I can. If you want me to see your reply, make sure to quote my comment or mention me @WaggishOhio383, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

The H510 has absolutely terrible thermals, anybody building a PC in todays market should be going for a case with a mesh front panel for maximum airflow.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

Please remember to quote others when responding otherwise they will not see your reply. Can you list your other specs for the build? So I can make sure the cases I recommend support the parts you'll be putting in it.

@Scorpsk made a post here showing the planned specs of the computer:

Lian Li Lancool 205, Phanteks P300A (it does kinda have a sloped front though) or CM NR600.

I think it was Gamers Nexus who did a video on the H510 and they found it isn't actually that bad. Perhaps if you're hyper focused on performance, get a mesh case but honestly I prefer the aesthetics of H510.

@Soppro Yeah I found mixed reviews on the h510 and it's super confusing because I don't know what to believe, I do like the aesthetics of the h510 and I don't believe I am going to be seriously overclocking. Thanks for the help though :)

I basically said a similar thing in another post but I have a h500 (which is basically the same as the h510 I believe, might be wrong) with an overclocked 2700x, gtx1080 and rx570, system never throttles or anything of the sort, playing some heavy titles under 100% load my 1080 will hit 78-80c but that's it, don't do anything heavy on the rx570 but it idles at 40c. CPU barely goes past 65c under full load (I do have a bit of a beefy cooler though). Dust is really the only "problem", gets a bit more dust build up than other cases but its not like a daily clean, I personally do it every 1-2 months (should probably do it more lol). I mainly wanted it cos I really like the aesthetics :P. I have installed some extra fans, (all Be Quiet! Silent Wings 3, 2x 140mm intake, 1x 140mm + 1x 120mm outtake) intake ones did improve CPU thermals but not by much, but I got some for aesthetics as well, front looked to empty lol.

Thermals are "Okay" recommendable for a mid ranged build (R5 3600/10600K and 1660ti/5600xt) with room for some overclocking, but serious overclockers, people who want to use higher end hardware or those concerned with temps should probably look elsewhere. Most consider 80ºC on their GPU to be too hot (though it's perfectly fine for their GPU and within it's operation range)
