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
Version and / or Patch Used: 4.61

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 we can see that the ASRock board is slightly ahead across the board when compared to the ASUS option, but it is behind the older Z77 options.
HD Tune Pro results don't show the SSD performance in the same light unfortunately. Across the board you can see the numbers are down. We did reboot a few times and also let the system stay idle for 20 minutes before testing. The results were consistent, though, with just a slightly bit of fluctuation being seen.
