The H510 Flow has a new design, and it's not just all for looks! The new front mesh panel has drastically changed the thermal performance of the H510 series, giving customers the performance they need to keep their system cool.

We have done some testing with our H510 Elite versus the H510 Flow in order to give you a good idea of the improvements in thermals this product offers!

NOTE: Different testing conditions and hardware can have an effect on the performance you may encounter with the H510 Flow. In most setups, coming from the H510 Elite to the H510 Flow you will see an improvement in performance. Results may vary.

Test Condition


25°C ambient


55% - 60%

Test Equipment


NZXT N7 Z590


Intel Core i7 11900K (~150Watts CPU package power at 100% Load)

CPU Cooler

Kraken Z63 - 280mm AIO


Nvidia RTX 3080 Zotac Amp Holo


Crucial Ballistix 32GB (4*8GB)


NZXT E850 850W

Thermal Compound

ShinEstu X23-7868-2D


Windows 10 Professional Edition build (64-bit)


H510 Flow and H510 Elite


Front: 2 x Aer RGB 2 140mm
Top: 1 x Aer F 120mm (Case Version)
Rear: 1 x Aer F 120mm (Case Version)

Test Software

CPU Stress

Prime95 (non-AVX 26.6)

GPU Stress

Furmark v1.26 (11520x2160 4x MSAA)


HWInfo 7.03-4450

Thermal Testing Data

The min, max, and average data points are captured using HWInfo of the CPU’s 8 cores while Prime95 is running. Temperatures while idle have been removed. For each model, three trials running approximately 15 minutes are performed and a ten-minute break is given between each trial for liquid temperatures to decrease. The temperatures are presented in delta T above an ambient temperature at 25°C. Fan and Pump settings are set to 100% value (full spin). 


Overall, for CPU Core temperatures, we can see a 4.7°C decrease in max temperature and an 8°C decrease in average temperature.
