It's like they took the ASUS Deluxe X99 board, and just... made it better

This is a nice one. Font isn't in your face and somewhat discreet, yet it's there.

None of the three companies motherboards that they have come out with i don't like any of them.

IMO RGB are over done.

Looks good. Z270 the year that subtlety and taste came back to the mainstream.

Edit - I was wondering about pronunciation. Looks like Aorus is a derivative of Horus the Egyptian god of War and hunting. Hence the Falcon. Just with the H dropped so it's like 'orus. Well according to Wikipedia anyways so could be complete bs....

Maybe it's an Americanism like 'erbs?

If you want an American opinion.. tbh I have no clue how you say the Aorus. I've asked a couple friends of mine and no one agrees on the same thing. It's just so odd for a branding name.
