How long of a riser cable do I need for the Vertical GPU mounting in the H510i/H510 Elite?

We recommend a 200mm riser cable with a right-angle connector. While straight connectors can still work, they do not look as clean and can get in the way of connectors on your motherboard; we recommend searching on Amazon for this riser cable.

Can the AER Trim be installed on the included fans?

The fans included with the case are what we refer to as “Case Edition” Fans. They don’t perform as well as their retail counterparts and lack that customization option.

Do I need a USB 3.1 Gen 2 connector to be able to use the USB C connector on the front I/O?

All NZXT cases with an external USB C connector require a USB 3.1 Gen 2 connector. While competing cases may use USB3.0/3.1 Gen 1 connection, we wanted to provide the best experience regarding data transfer rates which is why we went with the Gen 2 standard. While there are adapters that exist that let you use a Gen 2 connector with a Gen 1 connection on a motherboard, we don't recommend these as

Does the Smart Device V2 included with the H510i/H510 Elite need CAM software installed to work?

Our Smart Device V2 has many features that depend on CAM to function; the controller would run in its default settings without CAM. Unfortunately, these default settings are not optimal for the performance of your fans, and the lightings settings may clash with the aesthetic of your build. We highly recommend installing our CAM software to ensure your product performs the way it's intended; you can download this here.

How thick of a card can I vertically mount in the H510i/H510 Elite? 

Due to potential airflow restrictions, we recommend a two-slot card for vertical mounting. 

Can I use additional RGB fans with the H510 Elite?

Yes, you can, you are able to mount a 120mm AER RGB 2 Fan on the top of the case, and for the rear of the case a 120mm/140mm AER RGB 2 Fan. This will require the RGB cables from the controller to your fans to be re-arranged as the additional connection cables included with the fans will not reach the top fan mount.

How many radiators can be installed inside these cases?
The H510 cases can support a rear 120mm radiator and up to a 280mm front radiator.
