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.

Compared to our other X79 motherboard, RAM performance is strong coming in a little faster. Comparing to the Dual Channel Z68 platform, though, we can see that it sits a little behind. This is more so due to the way AIDA64 is testing. If you want to learn more about Quad Channel RAM and see the performance of it under a wider range of setups and speeds, I highly recommend you check out the Intel X79 Quad Channel and Z68 Dual Channel Memory Performance Analysis article that will be going online within the next 24 hours.
