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.

In typical ASRock fashion, USB 2.0 performance is strong thanks to the XFast technology it has. USB 3.0 performance on the other hand doesn't benefit from it in the same way. Fortunately, we still see very strong performance out of USB 3.0 devices with it lining up with our other boards.
