Velocity Micro Edge Z55 (Summer 2013)

 

The Velocity Micro Edge Z55 isn't the flashiest gaming desktop, but it combines top components, like a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 GPU, with a healthy feature set for excellent performance and value.

New Haswell processor and Nvidia graphics. Lots of room for maintenance and upgrades

Plain looking case

When shopping for a serious gaming rig, it's easy to spend a lot of money on fancy designs and flashy features. But what really makes a difference on the gaming grid isn't an embellished tower case or funky internal design; it's hardware. The Velocity...

Velocity Micro Edge Z55 ( Core i7-2700K, February 2012)

 

Velocity Micro hasn't updated its desktops' exterior design in years, but I can't say there's anything particularly wrong with it. The square angles and vented front panel might seem plain-looking, but I'd take Velocity's unobtrusive design over the...

The Velocity Micro Edge Z55 offers some of the best bang for the buck I've seen in an upper midrange gaming desktop.

I wouldn't call this desktop overly quiet.

The Velocity Micro Edge Z55 is a laser-focused gaming PC with a relatively attainable price, and it's an easy system to recommend to enthusiasts.

Velocity Micro Edge Z55 (February 2012) review: Velocity Micro Edge Z55 (February 2012)

 

Last year I fell for the Digital Storm ODE Level 3 , an upper midrange gaming PC that still impresses on our performance charts. As much as I still like that system, Velocity Micro's Edge Z55 is my new gaming PC of choice. It's possible this Core...

Velocity Micro Edge Z55 ( Intel Core i7-920)

 

Velocity Micro's case is an exercise in sturdy minimalism. You get no removable hard-drive trays or flashy front panel access doors, but in exchange, you get clean exterior lines, an expertly wired interior, and at least semitasteful blue LED lighting....

Fast overclocked Intel Core i7 processor; ample memory and graphics card power; provides enough performance to justify its upper midrange price.

Uses two graphics cards when a single, dual-chip card would have done the same work and allowed more room for upgrades.

Velocity Micro's Edge Z55 provides a powerful example of the leap ahead in performance afforded by Intel's new Core i7 CPUs. Velocity Micro's own overclocking efforts don't hurt either. Any PC gamer would love to make this upper midrange desktop their...

"Major overkill and over-priced"

 

If you build your own computer you can save yourself 1000 dollars and get better parts. I just recently built a new computer that will out-perform this by miles. Point being this computer sucks and you can really save yourself money.

Had to have ten characters....

Way too far over clocked for an 2nd gen i7. No need for two 100 dollar graphics card when one 200 dollar will out perform it. The price is way too high.

"Very poor customer service"

 

Would never recommend, not worth the money. Regret purchase, not sure why CNET recommended this. Would return this for money back if I could.

Parts were well assembled.

No updates were done, parts not specified in build were cheap, loud and broke constantly. Customer service was ridiculously poor. I have the logs to prove it. Replacement parts were never sent.

"VelocityMicro PCs are built very well, support is great"

 

I use my system to play Call of Duty MW 2 and MW 3 with excellent results. I also use photo and video editing software to process vacations photos and videos with very good results. I did not buy two video cards, I found that one video card gives me...

Look inside the case and you can view the excellent wiring job. They have evolved this to an art. The interior is very clean and air flow is maximized. There is always room for additions, I added an Intel 320 Series SSD with 160 GB to my system.

I have not found any in my system. I am happy with the hardware I selected where I balance dollards spent in hardware and software to be able to mazimize my investment.

Incredibly fast and reliable
