IO performance is where I expected it to be, it's a good performer, but not the best. SATA6G storage performance is solid. I expected these scores because of the 2x PCI-E for the M.2 drive. USB performance is very good because the port is directly routed to the PCH.

 

Audio RMAA 5.5:

 

I disable all audio features, set the correct bitrates, and then test the audio with a loopback test.

Sound Judgment by Ear: Excellent, really quite good, and the extra volume from the AMP is pretty noticeable. There are 5 ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
