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 and 3.0 performance lines up just as you'd expect with most of our other boards here. The only time we see it really fall behind is compared to the ASRock offering which uses XFast technology to boost USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 performance.
