The Z170-A has excellent IO performance as well. Overall this board performs excellent with IO, especially in USB speed.

 

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: Very Good, quality was high, and the sound was clear. This board uses a different codec than most Z170 motherboards, but it still sounds very good. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
