Hi, i'm looking to buy a new case and I've been wanting to get NZXT H500 because of its design. The only drawback is that i read reviews that the case's airflow is bad and my vega 56 temp can really spike up when i'm playing games with ultra setting or above 120fps.

Any advice? or should i get another case?

I have that case too. Nothing out of the ordinary when talking about high temps or so. At least not with me. GTX 1080 and i7 8700k. And to be honest, I read on a very reliable site in my country, that there are not really any negative reviews according the airflow.

I have the H500 also and am happy with it. I have an old system in it with and FX8300 overclocked to 4.4 ghz and a XFX RX480 8GB video card. I am using a Corsair H100i Pro AIO to cool the 8300. The highest package temp on the cpu I have seen is 48C and my gpu idles at 54C with no fans spinning and goes up to 75C while gaming. I can hear the gpu fans when they get to max rpm but it isn't super loud and when I use headphones I can't hear them.

I have the AIO mounted at the front with the fans pushing air into the radiator and have the top and rear case fans blowing the hot air out.

Another H500 user here and it's a good case but to maximize airflow you'll want to add two 140mm fans in the front as intake. With the Ryzen 2600 & RX 580 (20C ambient) I see the CPU at about 52C & GPU at 72C while heavy gaming.
