Do you like the functional and spacious layout of the Divider 500 with its split window design, but also care about airflow? The Divider 500 TG Air will fit that bill perfectly. Alongside the unique core design, the metal panel's vent shape is not only different, but also surprisingly good-looking.

The NZXT H510 Flow is based on the original H510, but offers a re-engineered front panel to solve the issue of airflow and thermal performance that was the Achilles heel of the original variant. Besides that, the case stays true to the same design and tooling, giving us a little blast from the past with hopes of remaining relevant today—two years later.
