Nzxt h500

I'm using a Thermaltake V4 Black Edition and it's time to replace it. I'm doing some research about the NZXT H500 and there's many people saying that anything above a GTX 1060 could get into some thermal problems.

Is anyone here using that case? And what is your fan config? Stock, 1 intake/1 exhaust, 2 intake/2 exhaust? What about temps?

TTL has reviewed the H500


EDIT: Though after watching it myself I realise he doesn't address airflow/temps. Maybe try GN's review?

GN usually dont add extra fans on their tests. I'll probably wait until black friday to decide. Thank you anyway.

I was thinking about that case, but the one thing that bothers me is the front intake is just one side of the front from what I can tell. I ended up going with the new Coolermaster H500.

There is one on the front bottom as well.

I've just checked their review and they did actually add a fan for one of the thermal comparisons as well as try different configurations or the existing fans
