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.




Our SATA III SSD performance wasn't great sitting in line with the older 990FX based ASRock motherboard. We changed ports and rebooted a number of times to see if we could get the numbers up, but no matter what we did, we saw these lower numbers.


Obviously when it comes to areas like MediaEspresso and PCMark 7 we don't see too much impact from the slower speeds. It would be most noticeable when it came to transferring large amounts of files.
