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.

Checking out SSD performance under AIDA64, you can see it's very strong and manages to come out ahead of all our other Z87 setups. Under HD Tune Pro you can see the results on the MSI board fall behind most of the other setups.

 

The only one that it comes out ahead of is the Super Micro board and we know that had issues when it came to SSD testing.
