Overall Score 4  

The Asus Z170M Plus holds its own in the PCMark08 and 3DMark Professional results. Still behind the EVGA Z170 Stinger for some, and comfortable ahead of the confusing ASRock Z170 Extreme4 motherboard results!

Storage next, and the Asus is solid across the board for the Read tests and even manages a victory in the Write tests.

Single disk performance is excellent, right in line with the recent internet data for the Intel Z170 chipset, the Asus Z170M Plus takes full advantage! The EVGA Z170 Stinger also demonstrated a step change in disk performance, it is good to see the trend continue.
