The Z270 Gaming-ITX/ac's storage performance is top notch as is network performance. While it's Intel Wireless-AC solution isn't the fastest around, it's fast enough.

 

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 is better than expected. I thought that the small area and low PCB division might result in more noise, but I was pleasantly surprised by its performance. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
