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 is pretty typical for a Z87 system with all setups performing fairly close to each other. Overclocking as usual really does nothing to memory performance. We've seen this on all Z87 motherboards with different RAM.
