There are worse but Asus is always the biggest fashion criminal. They absolutely, possitively cannot build a board with less than 4 colors. Some of their older boards look like constructed lego sets. I swear they color the crap out of their cheaper boards to get you to purchase something like the Gene that actually does have a color scheme.
It's odd that you say this because when I bought my motherboard, the first thing I thought of was legos. I felt like a kid in a sandbox who should be playing with his toy truck instead of building a computer.
Hopefully the led debugger module becomes more of a mainstream thing.
They may be ugly but they are heart touchingly rock solid
