The Z370 AORUS Gaming 7's M.2 and SATA performance is solid all around, and its GBit LAN controller is performing as it should.

 

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, however after installing the drivers for audio the scores went all funky on this motherboard. It's probably the combination of the ESS SABRE DAC and the software drivers that mess with RMAA. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
