The X170-Extreme ECC has solid performance numbers all around, and it's also one of the only C230 chipset motherboards I have tested that has an M.2 slot.

 

Audio

 

Sound Judgment by Ear: Creative audio chipsets report perfect output with RMAA when you follow their testing guide. Since the RMAA results are not very reliable in this case, I decided to just the audio by ear, and I can say it is excellent. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
