So we got to the most basic H510 model in the current range of NZXT cases. It has much in common with the previously reviewed H510i Elite, but there are also some design differences. In particular, there is no electronic control unit for lighting and fans, the front panel is metal, not glass, there are no slots for vertical installation of a video card, and instead of the front 140mm backlit fans, there are two 120mm propellers for the exhaust hood at the back and top. However, there is also good news. The H510 is priced at $70, not $150 like the Elite, and not even $100 like the H510i. And this is quite an adequate price in the current market conditions. Let’s look at the chassis in more detail.
