NZXT’s H710i ATX PC Case is a top-of-the-line product. This case is a significant improvement over the H510i, which was well received by the company. It’s worth looking at if your preference is for the clean, futuristic design and NZXT’s ethos of chassis design. Nzxt H710I Black Friday Deals 2021 You should be sure to have plenty of room for large motherboards and powerful cooling. It’s not a small box. We would like to see some improvements to the port loadout and polishing a few items. However, the NZXTH710i is an excellent chassis for enthusiasts and performance hounds who want to use liquid cooling. It’s difficult to judge a case solely on its appearance.
The H710i may seem a bit bland to some people, while others will be happy with the lack of bling. The appeal of the H710i will be for the latter. The NZXT H510 Elite, NZXT’s premium spin on H500 is the NZXT H500 Elite. NZXT’s H500 case is not the most efficient in thermal performance, but we loved it for its quality build and low price. It also has reasonable thermals. NZXT must be proud that the H510 Elite has been sent to us, and they also sent two identical copies. The H510 Elite will be introduced alongside the H510. It is identical to the H500 but has a USB type C port instead of one of the type A ports.

It is also very similar to the H510i which has an NZXT Smart Device. The Elite features a tempered-glass front panel, LEDs and two RGB fans for front intake (total of 3 fans), as well as the USB port and Smart Device. These devices were designed to automatically turn fans at the best cool-and-quiet speed. We have previously reviewed them. They will be subject to further testing, but we decided to ignore the smart device and control fan speed via the motherboard. We’ll pretend that H500 is the only case we have. We mean the NZXT case H500 when we refer to H500. Also, note that this was written and filmed about three weeks before publication. However, NZXT was notified in writing that there were thermal issues in the case.
NZXT has updated its listing to offer an additional 120mm exhaust fan for customers who have already purchased the case. While we didn’t completely rewrite the review to reflect this change, we added two charts to help us understand it. NZXT H510 Elite Building We will keep this section short, as the Elite is almost identical to the H500 base we reviewed over a year ago. Its design and construction are excellent. NZXT used a combination of plastic snaps, captive thumbscrews, and rubber thumbscrews to make the case openable and disassembleable. However, the front panel has two small Philips head screws that lock it in place. This allows for easy removal of the front pane.

One manufacturing defect was found in the case we reviewed. The thumbscrew holding the fan tray inside the case had been torqued too high to cause it to deform the chassis, causing the screw to tilt sideways. This review is unique because we received two identical cases. We checked the other to see that the thumbscrews on the second case had the same problem. NZXT has been tightening its screws since before the S340. The fan tray, despite its flaws, is still an excellent feature and easy-to-use. Although the metal on the PSU shroud may have been bent slightly at the point where the glass hooks underneath it, this could be intentional. The nzxt H510 elite article 2 Front I/O has been simplified from the original H500. Original H500 had an HDD activity lamp, a microphone jack, a headset jack, two USB Type-A connectors that were split from a USB3.0 header, as well as the power button/LED. The H510 Elite includes a combined microphone/headphone jack as well as one USB C3.1 Gen 2 port and one USB A port. It also has the power button/power LED/HDD led. NZXT includes an adapter cable which splits the mic/headphone jacks. We have complained about this in the past.
The Elite’s USB type A port is 3.1 Gen 1 and uses the same full-size USB 3 header at the motherboard end. It just leads to one type of A port instead. In our office, we use USB 3.1 type B ports almost every day. However, we have never used a male/male USB C cord. Although the Elite’s top looks great, cutting I/O options doesn’t make it a desirable feature. The FP connections are now consolidated into one plug. This makes sense considering that most motherboard manufacturers have standardized the pinout on the front panel. In the event of pinouts that are not standard, a splitter is available. The Smart Device v2 will be tested in the future. However, this review does not include it. Our thermal tests depend on the ability to control fan speeds. We also skipped fan and case LEDs as they are controlled by NZXT’s software. While there are many arguments for and against software control of LEDs, the bottom line is that anyone doesn’t want or need to deal with the smart devices or CAM can simply buy an H510 to set up their own LEDs (without a tempered glass front panel).
The only problem with the device (other than the increased cost), is the way it’s mounted. The latches for the LED plugs are located underneath the motherboard tray. This makes it difficult to disconnect cables. Smart Device communicates with the motherboard via a USB 2.0 header. The SSD trays function in the same manner as the H500. They clip into the PSU shroud’s ventilated surface or hide behind the motherboard tray. They are much more affordable than the original SSD trays. The old ones were made from many parts and had metal springs inside. These new trays are single-piece plastic. They’re NZXT all-black (inside/out) case. It has a vertical black cable-hiding/routing bar. NZXT also offers white-exterior versions with a black exterior and a white cablebar, as well as a black interior/exterior with contrasting red parts (including a red cable bar). Our test model is the most minimalistic looking of all the models. The H710i’s front, right and top panels are all one color, with very few distinguishing marks. Only the NZXT logo at the front and sparsely populated I/O panels on the top of this chassis are distinguishing characteristics.
The H710i does not allow air intake as freely due to its lack of ventilation holes on the front. However, it isn’t blocked. NZXT added a perforated strip to the right and left sides of the case. Nzxt H710I Black Friday Deals 2021 This trim runs along the top of the panels and down to the front. This trim may allow for plenty of airflow depending on the design of your system. It lacks ventilation holes at the top and front, but it is clear that other cases like the Be Quiet Pure Base500DX allow for much more inbound flow.
