The X99A Gaming Pro Carbon's IO performance is very good, but I should mention that I couldn't find SATA power savings mode that I usually disable for these tests.

 

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 scores were lower than I expected. That could be due to the special audio effects program installed (Nahimic). There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
