The X299-AORUS Gaming 3's storage performance is decent for SATA, but better on M.2. Network performance is what I expected as well; there is no wireless score because the motherboard has no wireless adapter.

 

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, but most motherboards score like this and sound like this because of the Realtek ALC1220, it really does change the game quite well, as now most integrated audio solutions offer great performance. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
