SuperMicro C7Z170-OCE (LGA1151) Motherboard Review

Storage Performance

Linear Read

The motherboard’s M.2 linear read performance is phenomenal and within touching distance of a staggering 700MB/s rate. Similarly, the SATA drive reported impressive numbers and remained within a very consistent range.

Linear Write

A similar pattern occurs with linear write results as the C7Z170-OCE maintains its top three position. Admittedly, the SATA rate could be better, but it’s not far off the majority of alternatives in the same price bracket.
