Please give me reasons not to get H510

So I need reasons for my friend not to buy NZXT H510 case he just says I can change later, but a 3070 with a 3600 can't feel good in it, like don't say the obvious one like bad airflow link a test or benchmark or article

Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help

probably one of the worst airflow cases I've ever heard of, get a 280x

take a horizontal pic of the case and draw out airguide lines showing the limited airflow, the air entering from the front is very limited and all gets sucked to the top by the top fans, so gpu is choked, then show the fact that the top fan exhaust is for show, since the cpu cooler will suck all the air to the back, so the probably worst case ever

Yeah I know I saw that, didn't convince my friend "It's not the same case" so I'm just giving up a this point it's his PC and his overheated 3070

The cases are similar but the H510 Elite comes with additional front fans. 

What does your friend like about it? The aesthetic? The H510 isn't the best for airflow but it's far from inadequate. Here are similar examples:

What kind of features is your friend looking for?

what bout the Lian Li LAN2MRX LANCOOL II MESH RGB

Cooler Master MasterBox NR600

Phanteks Eclipse P300A

even the lan cool 2 would be better.

Prism S-LITE

 

im guessing they like the minaml look? or the half height tempered glass?

you can find case that have a soled front but also better air flow (wont be as good as an mesh front thow)

You've tried your best to explain to him, if he doesn't want to listen and if hes adamant then he will just have to learn the hard way..

Sadly I fell victim to this same type of scenario. 

For my son's build in Fall 2019, I did as much MSI as I could, with all the RGB. 

I got him a MSI Skeria 500X case ($250 USD). 

Had him run it for a good long time with the side panel off. 

Then we had kittens 2 months ago, and I put the side panel back on. 

He started to get black screens off and on. 

I took off the side panel again, and it is much better. 

Granted he only has a 5700XT. 

But still that case had some terrible thermals. 

 

Now I have to get him another case. :(

 

My 2020 Upgrade: CPU: Ryzen 5 3600; MB: MSI X570 Tomohawk WiFi; Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 32GB 3600 MHz; Case: Lian Li Lancool II Mesh Performance; PSU: Corsair RM550X 80+ Gold; Storage: WD Blue 500GB SSD; Seagate 4TB Compute HDD; Monitor: GIGABYTE G34WQC 34" 144Hz Curved Gaming Monitor, 3440 x 1440 VA 1500R Display

 

Previous Components Still Using: GPU: MSI GTX 1070 (bought Used); Storage: WD 3TB Green HDD,WD 1TB Black HDD, SanDisk SSD PLUS 240GB

Previous Monitor I want to VESA mount: LG 29UB55-B 29" Ultrawide 1080p 60Hz IPS

I came from H510i (same with H510 but with smart device v2) and just swapped my build to the P500a white. Granted, I do miss the cubeness, compactness and the "luxury" look if the H510i but thermals are so great in the P500a that i need to forget the H510i.
