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.

SATA III SSD performance on the board is amazing. You can see that across the board in HD Tune Pro and AIDA64 that the performance stands out extremely well against everything else we've got here.
