The Z270 Extreme4's storage performance is decent but could be a bit better. You can go into the UEFI and change the drive type from HDD to SSD to get better SATA performance for your SSD, but since I test at stock, I can't do that for these results.

 

Network performance is solid, but that was expected since ASRock is using Intel's NIC.

 

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: Excellent. ASRock's ALC1220 implementation is great, and scores are in line with what I observed on other boards that use a similar setup. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
