I might end up picking up a Lapdog since my desk's height isn't very ergonomic. I could really use something like the lapdog to have a lower keyboard and mouse position.

Note that the top of Lapdog can also be separated from the memory foam base. It's designed to be as portable as possible within reason.

the Hydro Series H5SF mount design is the key! now if only i have a way of mounting that in my case. possibly above the PCI slots for gpu? or eat up a PCI slot. or an option to use it for the HG10.
bulldogs design of the entire case look really nice. and loved how the form factor still has an option for your choice of gpu.

i have mixed feeling for lapdog. when playing games i want my monitor and keyboard to have an angel and elevation. sitting the keyboard in my lap might be abit jiggly or wont get that stability a desk offers.

i might get a bulldog when its available locally. and probably install steam :)

The H5 SF utilizes an L-bracket that wraps around the back of the mini-ITX board with standoffs to hold up the radiator/blower fan unit. The block itself uses the traditional CoolIT mount.

It's not usable with HG10 (at least not easily) and honestly I'd strongly recommend against it. We rate the H5 SF for a peak capacity of 150W; anything more than maybe a bone stock GTX 980 will overwhelm it.

Could the bulldog be used as a standard pc -

example with lower end market components - fan cooling not water cooling

only reason i ask is .....

its the only horizontal corsair case that i have seen that will work on a TV stand

i would like to use one to build a pc for lounge use and streaming steam games

i wouldn't need a graphics card - Spec would possibly be Quad Core, 8gb memory

You could certainly use the Bulldog as a standard PC. It does come with the liquid CPU cooler as part of the package.

My grand daughter has been bugging the crap out of me for one of the bulldogs but she would change its name to something I dare not say...

What is the max recommended TDP for an H55?

I've been hoping for blower style CPU coolers to catch on. Putting two H5SF (one for cpu, one for gpu) side by side blowing out the top could make for a nice low profile cooling system. But perhaps the cooling performance is not quite there yet.

H55's heat capacity varies; if you have it affixed to a GPU, I've found the wheels start to shake at around 325W.

Thanks for the reply. It looks like my idea is a no go.

It has always puzzled me that so much heat-sink is required for a 95W CPU when a 250W GPU can get by with a dual slot cooler and a small blower fan.

It's related to heat transfer. For a CPU, there are two additional layers that have to transfer heat than there are on a GPU - the heatspreader, and the solder/TIM under the heatspreader that interfaces with the CPU die.

For a GPU, the die is exposed. That heat gets transferred directly into the block, it's much more efficient.

No, there's only enough room for a single graphics card.

1) Aside from the HG10 bracket and Hydro GFX, can other GPU liquid-cooled bundles work; such as the EVGA Titan X Hybrid, or perhaps an AMD graphics card? Can you also use a Quadro instead of a gaming GPU with the HG10 bracket?

2) For aesthetics and monitoring purposes, could a fan capable of RGB lighting be used with CUE on the Bulldog; to change its colour based on system temperature? If so, might you plan to release an RGB fan of your own in the future?

3) Are there plans for PSUs compatible with Bulldog after its release higher than 900W?

4) How large a hard drive can the Bulldog accommodate?
