Fractal Design Define Nano S case video...

If this case has the same  native cooling capability as the Core 500, then I would like this one better as there is more room for an easier build.

The Nano S is much bigger than the Core 500, and uses the same basic layout as the Phanteks Evolv ITX. I'd recommend the Phanteks due to the sleeker design and more modular interior.

So, for me... (sorry, beating a dead horse with OCD non-decision making...)

Fractal Core 500  vs    Phanteks Evolv
 (will OC the i7-6700k)
 

Fractal Core 500 better native cooling
Phanteks Evolv more room >  easier build/install

In the Phanteks I could use the Corsair Hydro 100i / In Fractal, would have to be the Corsair H75

Sound about right?

You got all that right.

To get a better idea of how these two builds would look, check out this Gallery Profile of a Phanteks Evolv ITX build, and TBG's just-published review of the Core 500.

The Core 500 is the ultimate compact gaming case, but if you don't care that much about size, you can definitely build up a PC more easily with the Phanteks Evolv.

The Core 500 really appeals to me, yet when I see how snug everything is, I'm thinking this will not be easy for me... as I am coming from the Corsair 600T monster case... I sometimes think my Mini Cooper could fit in there.
