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've never tried overclocking before, but I suppose I could with this machine. It's gonna have one of these in it.

I got the call that my machine is built and ready for me to pick up, but ironically I haven't had time yet. Or rather I know that once I get it I'll be spending a couple of days playing with it and getting it set up, but I've got some deadlines to meet so I can't allow myself that distraction. And yet....I'm allowing myself the distraction of the Logos forums. Go figure.

NovaBench Score: 673

After tweaking my new video card I was able to improve my score somewhat - from 638 to 673.

I think I will hold off upgrading to Sandy Bridge for a three months or so. While these scores fall considerably short of the new hardware, they are adequate for running Logos 4. Additionally, there have been some recalls on MSI motherboards and laptops due to some issues with the new Intel chipsets. One more reason not to be an early adopter.

Rosie Perera:

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

OK, are you ready for this?

 

Yeehaw!!

Now to install Logos and let 'er rip!

It is truly one sweet machine Rosie! It'll be interesting to see how making the SSD your primary drive affects the stats. Fasten your seatbelt and enjoy! Smile

Blessings,

Steve Johnson:

Rosie, you've waited a long time.

Yes, I have. It's been six months since my old desktop computer died, and I've been limping along on my laptop with a NovaBench score of 197 for all this time. Sometimes I put up with inefficiency for way too long because I "don't have time" to do what it takes to improve the situation. Yikes! Think of all the time I'd have saved cumulatively if I'd just bit the bullet back then. Technological asceticism has its place in the spiritual life (I advocate for periodic technology sabbaths), but not when it comes to good tools for studying the Bible!

George Somsel:

All downloaded by the time I woke up this morning.

 

Stay tuned...

EDIT:

Boot to my "Complex" test layout (with indexing still going on): 13 seconds on my new computer

Boot to same layout on my laptop: 2 minutes, 45 seconds

Oh I am so looking forward to never seeing that dreaded "Not responding" again!

Still indexing...1h 28m remaining. Will do a search comparison when that's done.

Has anyone else run a malware scan after downloading novabench?  You should, I have on two computers and picked up a trojan on both from the download.

Thanks for the heads up. I just ran a scan with AVG and found nothing. What scanning software did you use that found the trojan?

I use AVG anti-virus and did not detect.  I also use malwarebytes dot org anti malware and it was found.

OK, I scanned with Malwarebytes and it found Trojan.Oficla in nb3test.exe, which is a helper program that gets run by Novabench 3 (nb3.exe). Found some info about Oficla here and here. But you never know whether to trust those sites that give you info about removing malware, because sometimes the tools they offer you for doing that are malware themselves. I have posted a query on the Novatech Forums asking if this is a false positive or if we should beware, and what to do about it if the latter. Will report back what I hear.

OK, so I already posted one statistic above. It takes 13 seconds to boot up to a fairly complex layout, from the time of clicking on the Logos icon on the Start menu to the time it is fully displayed. (Ironically, running "close all" from that layout takes nearly three times as long -- 38 seconds! That is nuts! That's Logos's fault, not my computer's. But it took 5:05 on my laptop, so this is a major improvement.)

Here are some more benchmarks:

A complete combined PG & EG with every section took 1min 30sec to populate when run on the entire book of Genesis

Basic Search for Baruch in Entire Library (5,365 resources total; 25,838 results in 1,591 of those) took 0.33 sec (according to the Search tab) or 3 seconds until all the progress bars stopped moving (according to my second hand).

Basic Search for <John 3:16> in Entire Library: 0.35 sec (5 sec until the progress bar stopped moving)

Basic Search for the Entire Library: 19.71 sec (26 sec)

Bring up Print/Export from the Search results of the the search above: 6 seconds

Basic Search for  "look out for the dogs, look out for the evildoers" (Mark's test phrase search) in Entire Library: 21.65 sec (28 sec)

Sync (from clicking sync arrows until they stop moving): 2 sec

Update resources (from hitting Enter to the display of "No updates were found"): 2 min 39 sec [can't remember what it was on my laptop, but it was way longer than this]

Open my preferred Bible from a shortcut icon: 1 sec (it was 7 sec on my laptop)

Information panel updating while I'm paging through a Bible seems much snappier (1-2 second delay; it was more like 5-6 sec on my laptop)

Anything else I should try?

you might try searching for * , but it will probably still take a long time even in your new machine.

It sounds impressive! Are you pleased with it?

Hope you enjoy it!

Try a morph search lemma:ἄφεσις BEFORE 5 WORDS lemma:ἁμαρτία all passages, NA27.  This should be quick.  I get 0.72 sec.

Oh yes, good one! I would love to be able to search for all my highlighting using * in a practical amount of time. It used to take well over an hour on my old machine. I'm running a test now to see how long it takes on this one. UPDATE: Just finished in 729.38 sec (12 min). Now that's actually doable. I'd love to see it come in under 2 minutes, but I can live with this. (There are advantages to having suffered with a slow machine for so long. I've developed a great amount of patience!)

steve clark:

I haven't even finished setting it all up yet (Logos was my first priority), but so far yes, I'm quite pleased. Except there's some display driver glitch that I haven't figured out yet. A few pixels change color now and then and look like specks of dirt all over the screen. And it's bizarre because it doesn't affect all open apps. I can Alt+Tab back and forth between a maximized window with pixel dirt in it and another that doesn't have it. And it's random which apps get the pixel dirt, so it's not an app bug, definitely a video driver bug of some sort. I have the most up-to-date drivers for both my monitor and my graphics adapter. I switched from the Digital to the Analog version of the monitor driver which improved the problem a little (fewer pixels go wonky and less frequently, but it still happens).
