Finally ordered my new PC from a local place that custom builds them. I can't wait to benchmark it when it comes and take Logos for a spin on it. It's gonna fly!

  • Motherboard: ASUS Rampage III Extreme
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition, 6 Core, 3.33GHz, 12MB
  • RAM: 12GB DDR3 Triple Channel Memory
  • Video Card: Gigabyte (ATI) Radeon HD 6970 880MHz 2GB 5GHz GDDR5
  • SSD: OCZ Vertex 2 Extended Sandforce 240GB  [I plan to install Windows, Logos, and my most frequently used apps (e.g., Office) here]
  • HD: Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB SATA2 7200RPM 3.6MS 64MB
  • Coolermaster case and additional heat sink
  • Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Costs about the same as my first ever PC which was an IBM 286 clone with 40MB hard disk and 1MB of RAM, if I recall. Wow, computing has come a long way since 1987 or whenever that was!

All I can say Steve is - WOW!!!!! I had seen the new Sandy Bridge benchmarks in several tech magazines but I guess it really didn't click in my mind just how fast they are. I was looking at upgrading in the next couple of months. Your posting here may move that date up. Big Smile  What is really nice about the CPU's is the price/performance ratio is incredible.

Can I ask what hard drive you are running? And is this 64 bit Win 7 or 32 bit?

Blessings,

Bob

Steve Johnson:

Nice, Bob! Congrats. Is there a noticable difference in L4, and if so, where?

P.S.  I have to say I like "infinity" more.   Wink

Load time is slightly faster (about 4 seconds) and Logos seems much more responsive overall. The new card uses DDR5 memory vs. DDR3 so that part of the difference. I paid $20.00 less for the new card ($89.00) than I did for the original. Caught a great sale.

I'll be impressed if somebody comes up with "Infinity and beyond" Smile

Blessings,

Bob

It's Win 7 64-bit. 32-bit can't run more than 4GB.

Duh me! Tongue Tied Of course you are correct Larosa. I overlooked the obvious.

Your benchmark is quite impressive as well. Another Sandy Bridge CPU I see.

Yeah, I was quite surprised at the performance of this thing given that I only spent about $1100 on it. My budget sure is thanking me.

Bob,

Here are the stats:

HP Pavilion Elite HPE-570t customizable Desktop PC

  • • Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 quad-core processor with Turbo-Boost [up to 3.8GHz, 8MB cache]
  • • 16GB DDR3-1333MHz SDRAM [4 DIMMs]
  • • 2TB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive
  • • 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5770 [dual-link DVI, HDMI, DP, VGA adapter]
  • • LightScribe 16X max. DVD+/-R/RW SuperMulti drive
  • • 15-in-1 memory card reader, 1 USB, audio, with USB 3.0 card
  • • Beats Audio -- integrated studio quality sound
  • • Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

I upgraded from an older dual core and the difference is huge.  The new Sandy Bridge is no doubt the best bang for the buck. I cannot emphasize enough how smooth and quick L4 runs on this system.  No frustration, only joy with L4. You can customize a machine at hp.com

Nova results for a similar rig ...

 

And, yes, it does "fly".  Or, to quote Brian Blessed (Augustus) in I, Claudius, "Quick as boiled asparagus!"

Yes

 

With that machine, I expect Rosie to triple her forum inputs and donate some computing time to find the world's largest Mersenne prime numbers!  Wink

To overclock, you would need a nice 3rd party heat-sink/fan such as the very high quality Noctua NH-D14 (bottom) or the more affordable Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus (top), and high quality thermal paste for the cpu.

 

I first started using computers back in the early 80's when they were at 4.77MHz or less and 16K RAM!  But I still love computer hardware.
