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.

Memory performance is something AMD has really improved and we see some good performance again here with it being similar to that of our MSI offering. Overclocked, we don't see too much change in copy performance, but we do see a nice little bump in both read and write performance.
