They're gonna charge an arm and a leg for cosmetic appeal, despite the fact that we're living in a PSU shroud era.

A fair and solid point

Personally I never cared about cosmetic appeal for a PSU... It's a PSU!

Anybody else kinda bothered by brands trying to make everything?

Asus is my favorite motherboard and about my favorite GPU maker. Now they're making peripherals, monitors, laptops, smart phones for crying out loud and now PSU's. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with companies branching out trying to increase their market shares and their profits but I saw this a lot when I was big into car audio back in the early and mid 2000's... Brands that made superb amps started branching out into speakers, then subwoofers then RCA cables then head units.... Eventually instead of making superb amps, they just made "good" everything.

I'm probably overreacting but I guess I'm just worried that with Asus making top notch, bulletproof mobos and GPU's that if they start spreading themselves too thin, the products they were known for will start to degrade.

Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB x2 ••• Nvidia RTX 2070 FE
Samsung 840 Evo 250GB ••• Acer Predator XB272 @ 240 Hz

Asus is starting to slip, which is an awkward thing for a fanboy of 20+ years to say, but it's true. Gigabyte has been doing better than them on the X570 front, in the BIOS even (scary). They're starting to make mistakes much more frequently, and I see them going down the Corsair path, banking on a previously decent reputation, and expanding into too many markets too quickly. Now I wouldn't touch most Corsair products with a 10 foot pole. I only pray I'm not saying the same thing about Asus in 5-7 years.

ASUS has been bad for years IMO, it's not a recent thing. I used their servers 10 years ago and haven't touched them since. They were riddled with BIOS issues that took months to resolve at the time. Also had an issue with an ASUS laptop too (my wife's) where it can only boot from the included NVMe. It cannot boot off any other brand/model without using Clover. I won't use or recommend their servers or laptops any longer.

As much as I don't want to use any of their products I still love their boards. Really wish they'd focus on releasing the mini-DTX x570 board instead of announcing PSU releases though.

Asus and Gigabyte are now taking products made by 3rd parties and putting their brand on it and charging 20% more for a similar unbranded product
