The X370-Gaming K7's storage performance in both M.2 and SATA tests it top notch, and towards the top of the pack.

The network performance on the motherboard is also very good, plus you get the option to use Killer or Intel networking.

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, this motherboard has two Realtek ALC1220s, one is dedicated to the rear output and the other to the front panel, so you get 120dB on each. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
