There are many options for anyone looking to spend less than 00 1500 on a rig. These entry-level gaming computers provide a good foundation for future upgrades but that means you shouldn’t miss out on playing new games like Alden Ring in better settings.
Personally, I think these computers are often very interesting to check out your $ 4,000 browser to see which game will play in 4K and beyond. While it’s fun to mess around, the fact is that most people don’t have that kind of scratch sitting in their bank accounts. The main challenge for system builders is to provide a strong gaming experience with the right parts for them without unlimited funds.
Named after the Egyptian god of war, the $ 1500 (49 1,494 must be exact) CLX set gaming PC (Opens in new tab) Looking for a place on the top of the pack in a very crowded field of computer are all looking for a place on your desktop. This compact gaming computer makes a good first impression out of the box, but like the ancient Egyptian gods, they can be complex gods.
The structure I’ve got from the CLX set series desktops is in a smaller form factor, the micro ATX case. There is an in-depth computer regulator on the website that allows you to make a very informed decision on each part for the closed loop liquid cooling options.
There are small boxes here that give you an idea of what kind of frame rate to expect from a few games. I would love to see some more contemporary games used in system builder sites with this type of selector b-features. I’m sure GTA V is still very popular, but it’s been almost a decade.

I was able to make a copy of the set PC that I sent to the configurator to see what kind of lead time I was getting, which worked in about two weeks. There doesn’t seem to be much markup on the components. Hell, even GPUs seem at a reasonable price (Opens in new tab) Which is becoming more and more welcome.
CLX also offers computer-ready for the boat that they can come to you in a few days, although it cannot be adjusted, which is a very common practice.
Inside this computer are neatly packaged components that ensure no space is wasted on the white CLX Mini-ITX chassis, with the desired tempered glass side panel. Between the RAM and the 120mm fan, the RGB-loaded sections offer light displays on hard parts, which are controlled by the software itself, or the LED button on the front panel.
Talking about ingredients, a AMD Ryzen 5 5600X (Opens in new tab), 16GB RAM, and powers the RTX 3060 GPU set. We saw how good it was GeForce RTX 3060 (Opens in new tab) Performs as a low budget GPU on these systems and this time is no different. The Ryzen 5 CPU on the other hand didn’t really do the job, as you’ll see shortly.
Despite the lack of space, the CLX still manages to pack in a full RTX 3060 GPU with some room to pack. This is a strange change from the Redux-shipped system, which had the size of the motherboard and components for a small case, despite sitting in a medium-sized chassis leaving unusually free space on the computer.

As you can see from the benchmarks, the closest competitors to the set are mentioned above Redux ‘good’ computer And NZXT steaming computer In performance. Surprisingly, the set’s CPU benchmark scores lag behind those of some of its cheaper competitors. It was strange to see it having a lower score than an NZXT steaming computer (which has the same CPU). The set was a few degrees warmer than the others which could explain some of its disappointing performance.
Thankfully, the set performed somewhat better on our gaming benchmarks, running much better with Redux and NZXT computers (both with RTX 3060 GPUs). The only game where it seemed clear was Hitman 3, which had an average of about a dozen frames throughout the competition. Everything else was a few frames above or below these common price enemies.
Where I saw the system fight F1 2021 going. For some reason, the CLX crashed every time I tried to run a benchmark, and even trying to start a fast race was a software type accident, not a car type. Usually, when I have a problem with the computer, it is usually Metro Exodus which is the point of pain; That goes well without any issues.
Heatman 3 and Horizon Zero Dawn have also seen none of these issues. However, if you think about 1440p games, the set performance wasn’t that great. So, stick to 1080p, which is the resolution where the RTX 3060 does its best job, and the only place where you can consistently exceed 60 fps in medium to high settings in most modern games. Eat.

I was happy to see a 1TB SSD for storage; Recently the systems we shipped at this price only offer 500GB SSDs, which is not really enough for the current game and media library. It is always our recommendation when we review a little over 1TB to immediately increase storage when you are trying to set the system price for yourself.
A major concern is the noise level in the seat, which is safe to say is not quiet. The small system is surprisingly high even when sitting idle. The five 120mm case fans had a consistently loud sound that worked overtime. Is it something to hear some noise during on-demand play, but just watch Netflix? This may be a deal breaker for some. For me, it was the noise of bloodshed in my game chats and work years that got me wrong.
Another common disadvantage of these recent $ 1,500 buildings that we are reviewing is the lack of USB Type-C ports on the front and rear panels. A place where the NZXT steaming computer stood. Considering that USB Type-C is the best way to get the most out of devices like external SSDs, webcams, and microphones, it’s always surprising that they don’t see it. But hey, I try to keep costs low and motherboards can be expensive.
The CLX Set Scarab is a beautiful looking micro ATX system, with good 1080p gaming performance, for $ 1,500. However, the system noise level and CPU weakness indicate, however, that it does not make a really interesting case for the machine considering that there is something else for the same price.
