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.

Checking out USB performance, we can see that USB 3.0 performance lines up just as you'd expect with our other boards. USB 2.0 performance is very strong with only the G1.Sniper2 coming out ahead and the ASRock offering which uses XFast technology.
