NX chassis, door off

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.

Before we ship your system, we triple-check everything to make sure it will be the best PC you've ever owned. Our industry-leading testing includes a full week of benchmarks, tuning, and extensive reboots. Finally, we check cable management and connections with a 200-point QA checklist. Only then will a senior engineer sign off on your rig and approve it for shipping.

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.
