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.




Disk performance was quite surprising with it coming in a decent chunk slower on the Z77-HD4 when compared to the other Z77 offerings.


We tried both SATA III ports, multiple reboots, pause between benchmarks and everything else we could think of. In the end all we had was about 10 - 20 MB/s of fluctuation. Overall SSD performance was still very strong, but you can see, it clearly sits behind the other Z77 offerings including the big brother Z77X-UD4H.
