Default RT-N65u or RT-N66u

I currently have an RT-N56u and have trouble with it so am looking to upgrade. Does anyone know if the 65u does get faster transfers over usb3 HD compared to the 56u or 66u ( since a lot of people say that the usb speed isnt the limiting factor on the router) or if the dual cpu design on the 65u leads to any advantages over the RT-N66u? Or is the RT-N66u a better router than the RT-65u in almost every way? Thank you

u wont go wrong with either.
66u, you will have amazing merlin,
65u, you will get improvements by padavan.
dual cpu on 65u for more processing power for better hw nat and opt/ent support.
external antenna on 66u give u more range, more fw choice like merlin,dd-wrt and tomato.
if u can wait, maybe u'll like ac56 or ac67.

also, if im not wrong, 65u is a 2-stream while 66u comes with 3-stream.
