In terms of audio quality, the motherboard’s isolated PCB design and Realtek ALC892 combine to create impressive performance grades across a wide range of sampling rates. Clearly, it’s not the best integrated audio solution on the market, but it’s very good when you take into account the codec and budget focus.

DPC Audio Latency Analyser
In recent weeks, I’ve become slightly sceptical about Latencymon’s accuracy as the last few reviews have reported higher figures than I envisioned. However, even 300 is well below being problematic and perhaps another driver is causing an increase in our typical latency testing numbers. Currently, I’m looking to find a remedy to this problem. Whatever the case, the GAMING H170T achieves a low latency time and stays within a respectable range of the other results.
