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.

While USB 3.0 performance lines up just as we'd expect, we can see that USB 2.0 performance on the GIGABYTE offering lines up just as we'd hope. For some reason our MSI USB 2.0 performance sat a little bit back against our other boards.
