The motherboard offers excellent SATA and M.2 storage performance figures; it must not have power saving turned on for IO speeds. Network performance is also solid.

 

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, I think the RMAA results are this way because of some of the software MSI has in their package. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
