[ROG] Going Gold: ASUS Z87 Motherboard Design Story - Page 7

post #61 of 86
People actually saying it looks good? lachen.gif

DFI's lime green boards are still 100X's better looking then these. Asus designers must be color blind.

I hate the gold on the Motherboards. The black pcb looks good but the gold is pretty gross looking in my opinion.

Eh, not my thing. It is nice to see the 802.11ac WiFi card on that ATX board. That is normally restricted to mini ITX boards.

They need to move to this slick purple PCB, it would make the gold really pop. Put some swarovski crystals on the heat sinks, with cycling LED back lighting to give the illusion of speed whilst standing still.

White and black my have swayed me away from a Gigabyte board. That color of gold looks terrible though and would make me regret having a side panel window on my case. I wouldn't be surprised if they lose quite a few sales over this due to people who are nitpicky about things matching.

Theyll def lose sales. I dunno which genius thought of this color scheme. Even the "gears" part sucks. Sabertooth for me... Sabertooth...

Doesn't look terrible. But still going to alienate a lot of people because you really gotta love it to rock it IMO.

I think if ASUS makes a P8Z87-V Pro that is all black a lot of people would buy it. smile.gif

That's just terrible. If it was the best motherboard ever and someone gave it to me for free, I still wouldn't use it. Gold and black can look cool, but not on a motherboard and certainly not done like this.
