Velocity Micro Edge Z55

 

The rest of the chassis is the usual high-quality VM work: a midsize tower with attractive lines, good lighting from LED-lit fans, and neat wiring work. Those fans and the ones on the graphics cards are a little loud during heavy gaming sessions, but...

Speedy gaming and multimedia performance. Expandability. Attractive styling and neat interior. No crapware. Blu-ray reader

At lower resolutions, it performs not much better than a $1,200 gaming system. A little loud. Nearly $4,000 is a lot of money

The Velocity Micro Edge Z55 brings Intel's Core i7 to the company's high-performance gaming system. Though not quite as expensive as the systems in the $5K club, its performance is certainly competitive with those in the upper strata.

Velocity Micro Edge Z55 Gaming System

 

Unlike the enthusiast system manufacturers, Alienware and VoodooPC, Richmond, Virginia-based Velocity Micro is still an independent, privately held company. In fact, Velocity Micro is doing well enough on its own to have even purchased the enthusiast,...

Lots of upgrade options ; Blu-ray drive ; Well-built, strong case ; Neatly-routed cables ; Extensive documentation and driver discs ; No bloatware installed ; Variable-resolution gaming mouse

Standard warranty includes phone support only during business hours ; Most of the expansion slots are blocked ; Keys on keyboard are difficult to see

Overall the Edge Z55 gave a very respectable showing on our benchmark tests. The CPU- and system-based test results showed us the system's performance is in line with its specs. The 3D gaming results did not necessarily wow us, but then again the...

Good High-End Machine

 

I don't have the guts to try to build a fast gaming machine from scratch, so this finely crafted and very attractive machine is just what I wanted. Love it!

Great performance from a premium desktop PC. Large well ventilated case should lead to long life for internal components

None so far

Video card did not fit case

 

I sent it back for a replacement, I'm curious to see what they will do since there is not enough real estate in the case for this double card. I would either change cases or cut away part of the chassis. I'll keep you posted on round two.

Don't know yet

The ATI 5870 video card was too large for the case but was jammed in anyway. It was twisted in the motherboard making bad connections and the card was twisted so bad the top was 1/4" separated from the body and the cables were pinched where they were...
