"The Raptor Z40 gives gamers and professionals enough under the hood to handle any task, and doesn’t ask for half of your desk in return."
    – Chris Stobing. Digital Trends' Velocity Micro Raptor Z40 Review.

"A lean, clean small-profile gaming machine...[the] Raptor Z40 should be on your short list."
    – PC World



At Velocity Micro, we design record-breaking systems every day. The Raptor Z40 isn’t an exception. This compact PC strikes the perfect balance between size, power, and affordability. For anyone else, this would be a remarkable achievement. For us, it’s business as usual.


We select every component of the Z40 by hand from today’s top manufacturers. Then, we test and inspect each part for quality and only use what exceeds our own high-standards. This means that when you pick an upgrade in our configurator, we’ve already tested it to make sure it works.

An unassuming aluminum case and compact form-factor hide a computing powerhouse. Built using our NX chassis, the Z40 is a gaming PC that fits comfortably on your office desk. The compact form-factor and minimalist design matches any decor.

  • Room to spare: The NX chassis supports up to four hard drives, putting it in a class of its own for expandability.
  • Simple Connectivity: Small size doesn’t mean fewer connection options. Enjoy a full range of ports, including side-mounted USB 3.0
  • Premium Heat Management: A top mounted fan pulls heat up and out and the aluminum chassis acts as a giant heatsink to keep your PC cool and stable.


We could only make something like the Z40 after decades of building gaming PCs. Our engineers know how to maximize every inch of a chassis, making this compact computer a work of art. We build every PC by hand to ensure quality. We prefer to fasten every screw by hand, so you won’t find any assembly lines at our headquarters. Our commitment to quality allows us to create a computer that's faster and more stable than the sum of its parts.

The Z40 continues this proud tradition. Digital Trends awarded our small form-factor Z40 its "Recommended Product" seal of approval. But more importantly, our customers love the systems they own.

No one hates toolbars, freeware, and shareware more than we do. You should have the ability to configure the perfect PC, and that includes the software it ships with. At Velocity Micro, we won’t put anything on your system unless you tell us you want it. We don’t do bloatware. Not ever.
