I'm currently in the process of getting all the hardware I need to build a new gaming rig. Here is what the final build will be as of right now.

Ryzen 5600x
Evga 3070 xc3 black
Asus x570 tuf gaming plus mobo
Nzxt kraken x63 280mm aio
32gb ram 3200mhz
Evga g5 850w psu
970 evo plus 1tb
860 evo 500gb
Seagate 2 tb hdd

I've been looking at the Nzxt h510 elite mid sized case for my build. I was told the case can fit the 280mm aio but its a tight fit and you may have to flip the pump around to make it work. Does anyone know about this case and if this could work out?

I'm also open to suggestions on other cases that would be good for this build. Something in the same price range of 150-200 dollars. I'm just not to keen on the difference between cases.

I know it looks clean, but i would priorities airflow first.
My 2 picks are Corsair 4000D Airflow, or Lian Li Lancool Mesh II.
Now wait a minute... you told me last week I had a clean build but then didn't recommend my case. :LOL:

I'll second this. I went with this case for my December build because I wanted a case with plenty of room that featured a mesh front and top with room for a 360mm AIO.

This case is pure win... and I found out a few days after I finished the build that it made the "best cases of 2020" video over at Gamer Nexus and it won their award for "best mechanical design" for how it opens so easily.

I like when others confirm I made a good choice.

Can't go wrong with this case... and it's in your price range OP. I paid $180 for it and I think it's dropped a little since then.

I just know i would never recommend a H510 or its other variants for a new build, so i was curious when you said that : )
No worries! I agree with you about the H510 and also the elite model... I swear that case is just an upgraded S340 elite which is what I used on my previous build. At the time I just didn't put as much stock into case quality as I did with the recent build and will never make that mistake again. Small with very little room and poor airflow... meh.
