Default Going from Corsair Graphite 600T to NXZT H500i. What to expect?


I am currently on a Corsair Graphite 600T and after some reading i want to go to a NXZT H500i. I have looked at the Meshify C but look too tight for me especially when i have a 180mm PS and want to keep the drive cage, i have also looked at Corsair Crystal 460x however look too much weight and less airflow. It seem there is no perfect case.. it seem either you have huge airflow.. or look amazingly clean. Right now going to this case i am more concerned about thermal performance but from reviews the case seem to provide OK thermal performance. Probably i wouldn't put an i7-8700k inside but i am going to put a Gigabytes GTX 1080 G1 (which i believe take less voltage than other GTX, from what ive read it got 67 degrees in an open case environment) and i5-8600 or i5-8600k with probably an EVO 212 cooler inside mounted on an Asus Prime-z370-P (heatsinkless model). Honestly, i am not a big fan of overcloaking so i might probably just end up with a i5-8600. I understand components need to be cooled to perform better.. but at which point? Realistically, i am going to face any problems going with a more closed setup such the NXZT H500i? considering i don't overclock and that i won't put an i7 inside.

Thanks for your input!
