Recommendation on Mid Size case with good airflow?

Looking to switch from my NZXT 810 to something more compact. I like the look of the H500 and the refresh coming out soon, but can't help but feel they could of done better. Airflow wise and rad cooling wise.

I have the 8700k with a Corsair H115 Pro and a new 2070 Super Gigabyte Gaming OC

I don't overclock so I probably could get away with the H510 that is coming out, but any recommendations on something better?

Define C Meshify looks pretty nice indeed. However, will the Corsair H115 Pro and my GPU fit together in that case?

Was just watching a review that said with a cooler you only have 285mm for a GPU and my GPU per MC's site is 11.28 in. (286.50 mm)

It might be just too tight to fit..

Fractal says max length is 315mm for gpu. Minus the 29mm for the H115 = 286mm and the gpu I have is 286.5...
seriously...

I was about to suggest putting it at the top, but that only has room for 240mm. Perhaps look into the Meshify S2 - As it does have a bit more room to work with.

I may just go with the H510i as it has room for the GPU with the front using the H115 Pro and while air flow wasn't amazing it was ok.. and I am not running any overclocks so I think the system will be fine in that case.

What do you think?

That would be my second choice for sure, it's basically a 'go between' the C and S2 in length.

Phanteks P600S is my recommendation , meshify C might be too small for front AIO +long VGA .

My vote is for the H510. Ok to good airflow. Plus it has usb type c and audio jack combo.
