The Z30 SmallBlock was designed to be the smallest ultraperformance desktop on the market.. Our engineers designed and refined the Z30 to make it compact and portable, but also incredibly powerful.

It’s that stunning performance and precision engineering in perfect balance that makes it so special. For some, it would be remarkable. For us, it’s just business as usual.

We use only the very latest premium retail grade parts in the Raptor Z30 for maximum performance and reliability in a small package. Each component is hand selected and pre-qualified to provide only the most jaw dropping experience possible. That means when you make a part selection in our custom configurator, it has already been tested, verified, and approved to meet our standards in this specific form factor.


The Z30 SmallBlock was specially designed by our expert engineering team to pack as much muscle as possible into a sleek and sophisticated looking mITX chassis that uniquely merges aesthetics and function.

  • At just 13" tall, the Z30 SmallBlock goes everywhere and fits anywhere.
  • Brushed metal finish and clean, straight lines create a look that fits any decor.
  • Solid aluminum construction acts as a giant heat sink to passively pull heat away from vital components.
  • Fanless construction makes for whisper quiet operation.
  • Front USB 3.0 ports provide easy access for your most frequently used devices.

Before shipping, the Z30 endures a grueling set of tests and quality control measures that would bring most systems to their knees. Stress tests, extensive reboots, an overnight burn in, and an exhaustive 200-point QA checklist ensure that every Raptor Z30 meets our own lofty standards.

Sure, it’s more work. But no one ever said that creating something this remarkable would be easy...


Every Velocity Micro PC comes with complimentary lifetime business hours phone support. And the best part — a call placed to our expert, non-tiered support team will never be routed anywhere offshore. Not ever. It’s like having your own personal geek, just a phone call away.

It costs us more, but we refuse to let anything get in the way of an astonishing customer experience.

Each and every Velocity Micro PC ships from and is supported by our Richmond, VA headquarters. We don’t outsource. We don’t cut corners.

We don’t compromise. It’s just that simple.

If you’ve ever bought a computer from the behemoth, mass produced competition, you know bloatware. Free trials you don’t want, software you didn’t ask for, search bars you’ll never use – all choking your system.

We don’t do it, and we never will. With Velocity Micro, we only install what you ask us for, and not a thing more.
