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.

Memory performance between the ASRock and MSI board are pretty similar at stock. We can't really compare to the ASUS due to the fact that the latest AIDA64 version seemed to boost numbers slightly on the new platform.

 

Overclocking as we've seen all along does little to memory performance. This has become extremely consistent in all our Z87 testing thus far.
