The NZXT H510 Flow case is a model that was announced towards the end of 2021, in september 2021 more precisely. In broad terms, it is a version of the H510 optimized for airflow thanks to a honeycomb front. Let’s see how this works out!
The exterior of the H510 Flow:
We start with a brief tour of the dimensions and volume offered by this new model signed NZXT. Thus, the brand continues to put forward compact medium tower cases. This model displays dimensions of 210 (W) x 428 (D) x 460 (H) mm. With its 41L, the volume is identical to the Elite version. Concerning the weight, there is no risk of hurting your back since this model shows 6.6 kg on the scale.
As for the design, we stay on something sober and elegant at the same time. We will find just a small contrast with the different textures of this model with a honeycombed front and a smooth steel bottom part. Finally, a tempered glass side window adds a little class to the whole. It is not new, but we love the NZXT design.
We finish this overview of the exterior by the choice of materials that is focused on steel and tempered glass … And that’s it.
The control panel:
The minimalism, we find even on the control panel that takes place on the top of the case. This last one goes to the essential since it puts forward:
- 1x power button
- 1x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type A
- 1x USB 3.2 Gen2 Type C
- 1x 3 .5″ jack for microphone/headset
In itself, this preserves the design with a limited number of ports on the top of the case. However, in terms of practicality, this is not the best in our opinion. A second USB Type A would have been nice, as it is, we might quickly run out of ports.
The bottom :
The bottom of the H510 Flow remains identical to the Elite version… At the same time, logical, the base remains the same. We find four small plastic feet with a rubber coating. Once again, we have a material that adheres well to the surface on which we put the case. Not necessarily practical during the assembly where you spend your time turning and turning your machine.
We finish by mentioning the presence of a PSU filter at the back of this model. Unfortunately, it is accessible from the back and not from the front as it can be on an P120 Crystal from Antec.
The back :
The back of the case is still very classic, with an I/O Shield slot for the motherboard at the top. Just next to it, a fan slot is part of it. If we look a little further down, there are seven expansion slots. And at the very bottom, we have the power supply slot.
You guessed it, there will be no alternative mounting for the graphics card, namely vertically.
On the top, we don’t find anything special except the usual 120/140 mm slot of the cases in this series. Moreover, we notice the absence of filter at this place. Nevertheless, in its defense, we can say that the fans positioned there will be used to extract the hot air. There is therefore little chance of seeing a large quantity of dust entering through this area.
