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 SSD performance you can see the numbers between the Z87 options are all very close with not much separating them at all. HD Tune Pro drops off a bit as usual and you can see the minimum sits a little lower while the maximum falls in the middle of the pack. You can see above, though, that the average speed is slightly up ahead of the other Z87 boards.
