Replacing Everest in our labs is AIDA64. This new testing suite is from the core development team from Lavalys and continues that tradition. The guys have thrown in better support for multithreaded CPUs as well as full 64 bit support. We use this to test memory and HDDs for now, but may find ourselves opening this up to other areas of the motherboard.

USB 2.0 and storage performance both fall in line with what we would expect from the motherboard. As long as performance isn't worse, we're not going to complain about anything. You can see the effectiveness of that XFast USB feature on the ASRock board, though.
