The motherboard offers well-rounded storage and networking performance, nothing out was out of bounds from what I had expected given the controllers and previous results.

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, MSI is using a standard ALC1220 implementation, and these results are what I typically see with solid trace routing. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
