Many motherboards now have good audio!

You should be more than fine with that motherboard, as all of HyperX’s headsets are quite easy to power! I bet you could easily push the volume to ear-splitting levels with minimal distortion.

The only issue you might run into is board noise/hum/interference depending on how well-shielded everything is, but that’s usually not a problem anymore with better boards.

The days of blanket-recommending that people use an external DAC by default aren’t as prominent as they once were.

The only way to know for sure is to give it a listen. If you’re personally pleased with the quality, I wouldn’t run out and buy more gear!
