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.
USB 2.0 and 3.0 performance is fairly standard in both our benchmarks. As we mentioned the other day we'll be working to replace our USB 3.0 device soon and USB 2.0 is becoming less prominent on the latest crop of Z87 motherboards with some companies choosing to skip it.
