Corsair Bulldog DIY Gaming PC Coming Holiday 2015
John Williamson / 2 years ago
Corsair has unveiled its production version of the Bulldog DIY 4K-capable Gaming PC and expects shipments to begin during the 2015 holiday season. The Bulldog is essentially a barebones PC and sets the foundations for creating an extremely powerful and quiet console-sized rig which fits perfectly in the living room. Corsair’s pre-configured DIY kit features a SFX power supply, CPU and GPU hybrid liquid cooling and an ITX motherboard. To make the system fully functional, simply add a 6th generation Intel Core processor, memory, graphics card, storage and finally, an operating system.
The concept behind this creation is to simplify component selection and allow the less-experienced builders to select a dependable, quiet case for their PC. Additionally, Corsair have partnered with MSI to produce liquid cooled GTX 980Ti graphics cards available from Corsair.com. However, this scheme is restricted to USA customers until further notice. The Bulldog’s complete specifications and key features are as follows:
Bulldog DIY kit specification:
- Bulldog chassis – Highly ventilated, stylish, compact console design enhances living spaces and keeps PC components cool and quiet
- 600 watt SFX power supply – Highly-efficient, cool and quiet in standard form factor
- Hydro Series H5SF small form factor liquid CPU cooler – Quietly cools the fastest CPUs while exhausting heat from the chassis.
- Mini-ITX motherboard
- Intel® Z170 chipset with support for 6th generation Intel Core™ processor
- PCI Express 3.0 16x slot
- 2 memory slots with support for 32GB of DDR4 at 2400MHz+
- USB 3.0 and SATA ports
- 7.1 channel audio, via S/PDIF optical or 3 analog ports
- Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, and Bluetooth 4.1
- MSRP: $399 USD (available late 2015)
Personally, the black colour scheme with dynamic edges looks quite appealing and should entice users wanting a premium looking case which works as a Steam Box.
Is your next PC going to utilize a smaller form factor than traditional ATX systems?
