Product design heavily inspired by stealth fighter planes. it's a bit too much for my taste. The docking station is just weird and too big (probably speakers in it, but still...).

I liked the looks of most rog stuff but always stayed away because I could never justify the nearly 3x price increase. I will admit recently I got a crazy deal from a hardocp member and got the rampage v extreme with a 5930k. My God is it amazing. It's giving me results that absolutely tear a new asshole against my 4930k and 4790k.

I don't know if it's because I'm an old fart, or what, but all the loud colors and bright lighting effects of the ROG line is bothering me more and more. I'll pay for a premium product with top of the line performance, but I don't want to pay extra for useless lighting, etc. that do nothing to improve performance.
At least they haven't gone as far as MSI with their marketing. Seriously, did MSI hire Dethklok to come up with crap like "Killer DoubleShot-X3 PRO" and "GODLIKE GAMING"?

Actually I believe this one is just a water cooling system. The MSI one that was announced for their 13" laptop or whatever had the GPU in it.

Yeah its just a watercooling setup. Still looks like it took a post Thanksgiving dinner dump in to a small diaper

ROG effects can be turned off in the BIOS. MSI has a Dalek on their marketing team. Sorry. A Dalek IS their marketing team.
