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.

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

Looking at SATA III performance we can see that the ASrock Z77 Extreme6 is offering us better performance than the X79 Extreme4. Against the ASUS Maximums IV Extreme-Z, though, we can see it sits just a little behind.
