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 the SATA III performance we can see it's very strong on the MSI offering. This is a slight surprise as so often we see MSI boards trail a little and instead ASUS options come out ahead. Looking above, though, you can see that performance is extremely strong on this MSI board.
