In days gone by, deciding between high end components and a space saving configuration was a delicate balancing act with compromises made along the way. Things are different today. Hardware has evolved, and it's now possible to build a potent system inside a smaller size case. Velocity Micro's custom designed MX3 chassis is one such example of a compact case that can handle full size components, and it's now available from the boutique builder as a configuration option.
The MX3 is a microATX case that can handle up to two high-end graphics cards like the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti, a 240mm liquid CPU radiator, and up to half a dozen hard drives. As far as Velocity Micro is concerned, it's the most power-capable and upgradeable mATX case available in the custom PC industry.
"This latest chassis is the culmination of nearly six months of research, design, and development," said Randy Copeland, President and CEO of Velocity Micro. "We believe its unique combination of design, power capabilities, and outstanding thermals will make it extremely popular with our enthusiast audience. It’s a significant leap forward both for us and for the industry."
Velocity Micro's MX3 case option is available now in configurations starting at $1,099 (Edge Z40). For that price, you get a Gigabyte H97M-D3H motherboard, Intel Core i5 4460 processor, 8GB Crucial Ballistix DDR3-1600 RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 graphics card, 1TB hard drive, 24X Asus DVD burner, 500W EVGA power supply, and Windows 7 Home Premium.
