CrystalDiskMark USB 3.0:




ixChariot Network Throughput:




The Z170M OC Formula, like most ASRock Z170 motherboards, is very well tuned for storage and network performance.


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 high. While the scores aren't as good as some other motherboard we have seen, the audio output was still very good. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
