ixChariot Network Throughput:




The Z170GTN performed quite well for a Mini-ITX motherboard. The drives we used all worked at their rated speeds, and USB/Networking performance is right where I expected it.


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. With its ALC892, a sense amplifier, and audio capacitors the Z170GTN has decent onboard audio, especially for a mini-ITX motherboard. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
