    Yeah, I guess. If they had shown us more we would saying something like, "Oh, it's a **********", but now we are on a cliff hanger and want to know more.

    Haven't watched the video, but I don't feel like a support forum is the best place for shoving social style marketing down our throats. Isn't that what twitter is for?

    In my case it probably means I'll just forget about it since theres no information provided for me to actually take note of, but then no marketing is ever going to have 100% success rate.

    Re: What is Bulldog? #CorsairBulldog

    It's almost certainly a case.

    Either similar form factor to the Air 540, all squat and bulldog-ish, or something really beastly and big to replace the 900D.

    I believe I can see red accents, MASSIVE amounts of mesh/grille for airflow, brushed steel panelling, side intake fans, about three 5.25" bays with an SSD holder on the left side, a side intake 120mm fan cooling a Hydro series radiator behind that... Couple of backplates that look like they may be CorsairLink modules, with lots of cables running around it.

    This is probably one seriously well-cooled, integrated, SFF case, here!!

    Wow troll alert...

    If you don't agree with what they are doing why don't you just... not look at it?!
    Overall I'm totally for Corsair posting little marketing snippets like this as it generates traffic through Hexus which in turn supports the community.

    I'm actually very curious as to what this will be. It better be something ground-breaking after this approach to marketing!
    If its just an SFF case I will actually be a little disappointed.

    No, he's right. This is totally unacceptable.
    Corsair should do what everyone else does and only make products in a signature colour, marketing them by chucking a load of detail-lacking emails out to us and just keep insisting that it's made "by gamers, for gamers"... being different and engaging directly with the community of a "support forum" is just not the done thing!!

    I was worried that's how it would have appeared, but I do think that type of social marketing has it's place - outside of a (fairly serious) discussion forum. Just dropping a video and a hashtag and running doesn't really contribute much. I personally would have rather they just waited and maybe posted an announcement of whatever this is when it's actually released - then we could discuss it and not blindly speculate on what type of case it is. I'm sure Hexus would have been happy to put something up on their behalf.


    I didn't not watch the video out of protest, don't watch youtube videos at work. The title of the post kind of suggested they'd answer what Bulldog is - but I take it the video doesn't offer that information.


    Anyway, didn't mean to upset anyone, just felt a bit of a cheap marketing post coming directly from Corsair. If a normal forum member had posted it looking to discuss then it wouldn't have been so bad.

    I think it's worth noting that, AFAIK, companies pay for the presence of a support forum in their name. As such, my view is they can fill it with as much of their own content as they'd like.

    Two main benefits, the section doesn't go stale.
    It generates discussion.

    Both of which aid with the decision to keep the support forum in place, which in turn adds some funds to the HEXUS coffers and stops stupid buy-outs like Dennis buying Bit-Tech and ploughing it into the ground until DR bought it...

    I agree with the guys that don't think Greybeard has done anything wrong and has in fact done something that is both positive for the forum and Corsair.

    Messages like this are quie infrequent and whether you like it or not have got us talking and even trying to guess what Bulldog is, so in that respect it has worked.

    Also what you are saying about normal users means that if Greybeard had a second account, lets say one called Silverbeard and he posted from that then you would have been ok with it? Except where in most cases forum rules don't usually allow members to have multiple accounts.

    A Normal user to me would be one that wasn't being paid to drop thin marketing posts. If you or I had happened across the video and decided to share it on here with the intention to start a discussion or express an opinion about it then fair enough. As it is the post is literally a video and an off-site link. Wouldn't pass a Hexus 'constructive post' test in my opinion, I doubt it'd get through many "human" tests.

    Anyway, I apologise for any offence or upset caused, it wasn't my intention. If people are whipped up to an excited froth about the video then good for them. I'll go and read a different bit of the forum

    Sorry that you feel that way man. It never really crossed my mind that sharing new tech info like this on the forum would translate to a cheap marketing stunt (as you have described it). I didn't expect that it could be viewed that way. It's probably because I'm a PC enthusiast dude that happens to be a support guy who does not have a marketing mind set. My intention is for us to have fun taking wild guesses as to what it is, nothing more

    I figured Computex is coming up soon (next week) and since there will be tons of cool stuff that will be introduced to the market, I thought sharing a teaser with you guys would bring some excitement to the community before it gets revealed next week.

    Its not necessarily, 'upset' or 'offence, its just that the attitude is unnecessarily cynical and negative.

My intention is for us to have fun taking wild guesses as to what it is, nothing more

    I figured Computex is coming up soon (next week) and since there will be tons of cool stuff that will be introduced to the market, I thought sharing a teaser with you guys would bring some excitement to the community before it gets revealed next week.
    That's how it came across to me dude

    But seriously, it is just a tiny snippet that something might be about to happen.
    I personally think it's more informative than, say, Razer's idea of just linking to a green & black page with a countdown a month in advance, only to discover the 'great reveal' is nothing more than an overpriced, ill-conceived light-up mousepad without so much as a USB passthrough...

    This at least offers enough hints that I can fill a whole post of wittering about what I think it is... and I haven't even been able to watch the video with sound, yet!!
