The Z270X-UD5's M.2 and U.2 performance were excellent, SATA was great too (sequential write was a bit low), and networking was what I have come to expect from Intel NICs.

 

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. GIGABYTE's ALC1220 is good enough. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
