MSI Z77A-GD65 Gaming Series (Intel Z77) Motherboard Review

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 CPU's as well as full 64 bit support. We use this to test memory and HDD's 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.

SSD performance is pretty typical under both HD Tune Pro and AIDA64. You can see that the minimum sits a little lower under HD Tune Pro, but the average and maximum numbers come out looking strong.
