The Z170X-GAMING 6 has solid IO performance. Storage is marginally faster than the Z170X-Gaming 7.

 

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, but not as good as some other motherboards with beefier circuitry. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
