The X399 Designare EX's SATA storage performance is average while its M.2 performance is excellent. Networking performance is where it should be for a motherboard with a 1Gbit NIC, as the other two boards in there have 10Gbit NICs.

 

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. It has a solid ALC1220 implementation. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
