No. It can only be oriented horizontally.

We do have one Quadro card on our compatibility list. We've tested for compatibility with HG10, Hydro GFX, and the Radeon R9 Fury X.

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?
We don't have an RGB fan and I can't comment on future products.

3) Are there plans for PSUs compatible with Bulldog after its release higher than 900W?
Not currently. Honestly, because Bulldog utilizes the SFX12V form factor, it's very costly to increase capacity beyond the 600W unit Bulldog is launching with. I can only think of very fringe circumstances where the 600W PSU would be inadequate for a system you could build in Bulldog anyhow.

4) How large a hard drive can the Bulldog accommodate?
Bulldog fits a single 3.5" drive and a single 2.5" drive, or three 2.5" drives.

Unfortunately, you're going to have to wait. Lapdog is still being developed and won't be available until Q1 2016 at the earliest.

It is a shame there's such a gap between Bulldog's release and Lapdog's, particularly when they were designed to complement each other. Though I want to hold out for those products, Corsair could offer an RGB gaming bundle of the Strafe, Scimitar and Void...

After looking over the HG10 980's specs, could it accept a Quadro M5000 instead of an M6000, given they are the same dimensions?

Dimensions may be the same but screw mounting patterns may not be, so I can't guarantee any compatibility there.

Bulldog's been pushed out to January for a CES launch.

So, the M5000 has a different screw mounting... guess I'm getting a Titan X.

Dustin -

Does Corsair do pre-orders for new products? I wouldn't mind putting down a few hundred dollars today to be put near the top of the Bulldog shipping list.

[edit]

Follow-up question, what are the final external dimensions of the Bulldog?

[2nd Edit]

Found this: 43.18cm x 38.1cm x 12.7cm. [source: http://wccftech.com/corsair-has-let-...-the-lapdog/]; is this still accurate? Or have redesigns shrunk the overall size?

Dustin,

1) Now that CES has come and gone, is there any updated release date available for Bulldog?

2) Can you share the mobo specs for the Bulldog yet? Can you at least share the supported DDR4 speeds/specs?

3) Will any standard 980ti be compatible with Bulldog's water cooling, albeit perhaps with some modification? Is there going to be the option to buy just the raw, cooler-less version of the advertised Corsair/MSI 980ti? The Hydro GFX on Corsair.com seems to come with the cooling solution bundled.

4) Is there a recommended Corsair DDR4 set for Bulldog?

Thanks!

The Gigabyte Z170N-WiFi will be motherboard included in the bundle which supports DDR4 3200(O.C.) /3000(O.C.) /2800(O.C.) /2666(O.C.) /2400(O.C.) /2133 MHz memory modules.

Probably end-March at the earliest.

The motherboard used at CES with Bulldog was the Gigabyte Z170-WIFI; full specs on what RAM it can take is here. However, you don't have to use that model in particular, as it will accommodate any H170/Z170 Mini-ITX motherboard.

Quote:

Obviously the higher the clock speed, the better performance you will get from them. Maximum RAM capacity for Mini-ITX is 32GB via two DIMM slots; Amazon is currently selling Dominator Platinum 16GB 3200MHz DDR4 as a pair of chips for $150.

Very curious if there's an update about when the Lapdog will be available? Also will it only be available through the corsair website or will it be available in local physical stores (best buy, microcenter, etc)?
