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.

Looking at the performance on our WD Passports, we can see that USB 2.0 performance is always strong on the ASRock offerings thanks to that XFast USB technology. As for USB 3.0, we see that it really lines up with all our other boards with very little difference between the USB 3.0 setups.
