When it comes to M.2 and wired networking performance, the Z170N-WIFI performs at the top of its class, but WIFI performance isn't as strong as some low-powered Broadcom controllers.

 

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, the audio was clear and the quality was very high. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
