The ROG ZENITH EXTREME's IO performance is excellent, truly. SATA is average, but M.2 is very good (I think AMD's updated BIOS increased seq. read for M.2 as look at MSI as well), and networking is awesome.

ASUS's 10G card operates as it should, and wireless-AC is just where it should be as we have tested this card before on the X299 Deluxe.

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, ASUS's ALC1220 implementation and audio solution of X399 is more involved than other motherboards I have seen and their efforts have paid off. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
