Corsair bulldog, equivalent?

Is there a case like the corsair bulldog that can be put on its side? If it looks somewhat like it, that is a big plus... or would the bulldog kit be best to get? its $399 for a liquid cpu cooler, case, psu and z170 motherboard. I won't be getting the pc until Christmas but just get ideas for the final build.

$400 may or may not be a good deal, depending on the quality of the parts.

Is the node 202 smaller?

Here's another US alternative. I'm not sure if I'd go with the AIO instead of HSF, but the Bulldog certainly has something very similar to this cooler anyway.

And another case option is the RVZ01B-E (the HTPC form)

1080 included in the list for compatibility reference

You got a new profile picture, I like :P

I like that case but the only problem is that you need to open it to get the audio jacks/usb's which would end up being left open and annoy me. I also like cube cases like the node 804, which is on my list of cases I was deciding between. Link, I don't like the core v1 because it looks cheap and fragile (I know its good though). I like the look of the 804, the SG13B (I think) isn't too bad either. I can get a full atx case no problem but I just like the itx size, unless there is a build I really like the look of, Like this.

Would you get this over the bulldog? I will be building it just after Christmas and I think I will get more for my money from the bulldog kit since its $399 and it should convert to £300~ and it includes a liquid cpu cooler, although the recommended gpu to use needs a liquid cooler, not sure if its absolutely necessary but it might be. Also, that C1 seems really expensive for £67...

For this case.
