Haha yeah that sticker is a bit "in your face". I forgot I don't see posts from King of Old school. Was wondering when he was going to post and say how good this was. Never mind its a budget PSU. I wonder why we still have bronze efficiency ratings in this day and age.

Asus have the best bioses which to me means best boards. Some of their design choices are a bit iffy but they usually get it right

What's going on... I find myself agreeing with you way too much these days haha.

Yep I think the best selling feature for me is a good highly optimised and customisable BIOS. What good is a board that looks good, and overclocks with a mediocre amount when you can't tweak the living hell out of it.

It could be simply that i am just used to the ASUS Bios now. Since each new chipset, the revisions are similar. Allows me to just jump right in and have fun. I tried Gigabyte and also MSi but they felt a little too clunky for me. This was on Z77 though so that's quite some time ago.

Agreed, but at least most cases now have PSU shrouds hiding them completely. Which thank god because my RM850s yellow sticker would stand out from all the blue in my system

Decent BIOS should be the top of a lot of PC builder's requirements, especially if you want to foray into OC territory. I absolutely loathe the BIOS in my MSI board, I tend to just sort it and forget about. It feels like it was an afterthought with how it's designed and such. But that's probably because I've been using Asus boards for years as well
