Hi im new to building and was planning to put together a new pc containing - Ryzen 7 3700x , an Rtx 3070 and an Asus Strix X570-F as the motherboard. Will the 2 stock fans that come with the NZXT H510 case be enough or will i need to get more fans?

I would pick a case with better airflow but using that case the 2 stock fans without adding more. Also add a decent aftermarket CPU cooler that will do you better than adding extra case fans.

Using the case you picked.

The H500 isn't totally crap; most people are just setting it up incorrectly.

@hs123
If you intend to air cool only in the H500, the stock configuration of top and rear exhaust is the best.
If the stock setup isn't enough and you need more effective cooling, the gpu needs to be liquid cooled first. If you don't want to deal with that, look at a different chassis.
