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.

USB 2.0 performance is surprisingly strong with it lining up with the ASRock board which uses XFast USB technology. USB 3.0 performance holds no surprises as it lines up with all our other boards.
