PC Magazine's current Editors' Choice for high-end gaming! Made famous by tournament gamers the world over, the Raptor™ Z55 is the perfect blend of ultra-performance hardware and expert engineering. Designed and refined to be as close to perfection as possible, this PC crushes benchmarks. It’s the true embodiment of our New PC Experience. And the epitome of our ongoing quest to create a flawless PC. Available in both our midsize mATX MX3 and full ATX GX4 chassis.
The Raptor™ Z55 was designed for users in need of a little extra muscle without breaking their budget. Our tweaking, tuning, and hand construction along with the use of only premium parts and components are what make this one of the fastest PCs around.
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 from Intel® like Kaby Lake 7th Gen Intel Core Processors, NVIDIA®, and AMD® along with motherboards from Gigabyte and Asus in the Raptor™ Z55 for maximum performance and reliability. 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.
The Raptor Z55 is now available in both our mATX MX3 and full ATX GX4 chassis. Sleek, clean lines to uniquely merge aesthetics and function and create a look that fits any décor.
- Bottom and top mounted fans pull air through the system to keep vital components cool, even under the heaviest of workloads.
- Optional 240mm maintenance-free liquid cooler and lighting kit makes this our most efficient desktop to date, able to keep even the highest-end CPU stable under load.
- Top front USB and audio jacks provide easy access to your most used ports.
- Plenty of room for expansion with slots for up to six hard drives and dual extreme graphics for the ultimate gaming experience.
We’re obsessed with perfection – there are no assembly lines here. As with all Velocity Micro PCs, each Raptor™ Z55 is hand built by expert engineers, meaning every screw is turned by hand and each cable is clipped and tucked away with care. The end result is better airflow and thermal properties, translating into a more stable, longer lasting PC that’s easier to service and upgrade.
Since our first review in 2002, no PC manufacturer has won more awards from the press than has Velocity Micro. Featured in CNET, PC Magazine, PC Gamer, Maximum PC and many more, the Z55 continues to be lauded by reviewers and customers alike for its performance, build quality, and stunning design.

Before shipping, the Raptor™ Z55 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™ Z55 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.
