ASROCK's Z170M OC Formula is a strong performer all around. At stock speeds, multi-core enhancement is engaged, producing much stronger results than some other motherboards at default settings. Once we equalize all the settings, we find that the motherboard is very competitive.

 

The motherboard also has a plethora of tuning options I did not touch, but if you want every drop of performance, you can tune them. Some motherboard reviews put a lot of weight into motherboard CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks, but for me CPU, memory, and GPU benchmarks on motherboards should be more about finding anomalies, and I do that at standard settings (4.5G in graphs).
