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.

We can see that memory performance is strong and improves as we go up, but under AIDA64 we can see that compared to the Z68 platform it sits a little behind. We've mentioned this a few times and we're sure we'll see some improvements from AIDA64 in no time.
