Velocity Micro Introduces Boutique PCs for Everyone with New GX Chassis

Richmond, VA — September 29, 2005 — Velocity Micro is making the boutique PC experience available to everyone with the introduction of its new custom designed GX chassis. The GX is an all aluminum case with Velocity Micro’s signature industrial design. The new case will appear in Velocity Micro’s home office, budget gaming, and mainstream offerings.

“With the GX, anyone can get the boutique PC experience of having a fully customized, handcrafted, high performing system that happens to be in a gorgeous case that doesn’t look or perform like a toy,” says Randy Copeland, president and founder of Velocity Micro.

In addition to its sleek aesthetics, which include the Velocity Micro logo laser cut into the front of the case and lit up by blue cathode lights, the GX case’s 100% aluminum construction endows the system with excellent thermal properties. According to Chip Lowell, Velocity Micro Vice President of Sales and Customer Care, “one of the benefits of aluminum is that it cools better and faster than other materials to keep internal temperatures low and performance optimal. This is what our customers are asking for.”

The GX also comes with the new Velocity Micro 500 watt power supply, a reliable and plentiful source of energy for intense computing. Blue lights incorporated into the power supply enhance the attractive styling of the case. Custom designed by Velocity Micro, the unit offers a perfect blend of airflow and minimal acoustics.

The mid-tower ATX sized case has four 5.25” bays and two 3.5” bays externally, with 2 USB 2.0 ports and one FireWire port in front for a total of eight USB 2.0 and two FireWire ports in most available configurations. The interior offers easy access to components, thumbscrew side and PCI slot covers, and dual 120mm fans for superior airflow.

The GX is now available with the Velocity Micro Vector, Vision, and ProMagix multimedia systems, and the Gamers’ Edge line of gaming rigs. System prices start at only $849, making the boutique PC within reach of most enthusiast customers. Initially offered only in black, the GX will soon be available in blue anodized aluminum in November.
