The Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming i7's storage performance is solid. The network performance is blazing fast, as it should be because ASRock gave the Z270 Gaming i7 a 5Gbit NIC.

 

To test the 5Gbit NIC, I connected the 5G NIC to another computer with a 5G NIC, then assigned static IPs, and then ran the test.

 

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. The Realtek ALC1220 does make sub-$100 sound cards a waste of money. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
