Mine only looks brown if you take a picture of it using flash. Otherwise it looks black. I personally prefer Black PCBs. They go best (IMO) with any other color theme you choose.

That has the same color scheme as my P7P55D-E Pro, but I don't think its PCB ugly brown. No where near that. more black IMO.

It's not like I keep my case open staring at my Motherboard, so I have little to complain about when it comes to the guts of a desktop or it's component's look, unless of course there is an acrylic window, then looks & wiring start to matter...

I don't put much emphasis on looks inside a case, it's all ugly unless your building a professional desktop for a client who is paying for professional work...

If the client is not paying for better work, they get the standard wiring & a standard case, I hate hearing people complain about petty stuff like this...

When someone is paying to make or buy a professional rig, then you have a right to get pissy about the colors etc, till then just let it go, truly...

This is the old ugly brown (cheaper board)


Compared to higher end board of the same time period (don't look brown IMO)
