The X299 Gaming i9 has some of the best storage performance, but also excellent network performance with its 10Gbit NIC (I used ASUS's 10G switch). Wireless performance isn't the best, but that's because it uses a 433Mbps solution rather than 867Mbps on other boards.

 

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 ALC1220 implementation is solid. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
