The Z370XP SLI's M.2 and SATA performance are good, although the aggressive link power management (LPM) of the SATA drive does reduce its 4K writes a bit. You can disable that in the UEFI. Check out that sequential read though, it's beautiful. Networking performance is where it should be.

 

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: Very Good, solid audio. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent.
