It's an improvement but what kills it is RGB lighting.

IMO there's nothing wrong with a plain black motherboard with no RGB lighting.

Wonder how long before someone jumps on this stating "looks good but has RGB lighting so will not buy".

I think we are at a point where the additional cost of rgb led is totally negligible and is used as a selling factor now. It's so common place these days.

I've been looking at this one and the new RoG IX. Both look very appealing.

I have been using RGB LEDs for years and they lose their magic after about a day.

Mine are active too, so interact with games and stuff too. IE in Dying Light and the Metro games if I turn on a flashlight they all turn white. If you fall from a decent height they pulse red and if you have a zombie after you they turn green.

All great fun for about ten minutes.

I don't do any of that cr*p mine are set to a static white, Cause IMO white is the best colour and it doesn't bleach anything out not like colours.

actually enjoying the RGB on the board I have mine set for cpu temp. I'm liking it so much I'm strongly considering a case change to the Crystal 570X with some of the Corsair RGB fans.
