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.




Looking at the performance of our SATA III drive you can see under AIDA64 the numbers look good with the best maximum performance being seen and the average and minimum lining up fairly close with the other motherboards here.


HD Tune sees a drop in performance like we have seen on almost all our Z87 offerings. Across the board you can see the number on all our Z87 options are fairly similar with the ASRock having a bit of a leg up in the maximum performance numbers.
