    Re: Asus releases ROG Rampage VI X299 motherboards

    It appears that this motherboard is suffering from an advanced stage of GBD - gaming branding disease.

    Common early symptoms of GBD in motherboards typically include dark colour schemes, audio system hype and gratuitous use of decals and PCB silk screening. More developed cases of motherboard GBD may involve RGB lighting, excessive heat sink shrouding, an excess of I/O and high RRP.

    In this instance, arbitrary angle syndrome (AAS), which is common among chassis' affected by GBD, is apparent not only on the excessive heat sink shrouding, but may also be responsible for the missing sections of motherboard - indicating a hitherto undocumented stage of GBD in motherboards.

    It is this authors opinion that the rampant and seemingly unstoppable spread of GBD in motherboards, and indeed across other computer components, is aesthetically offensive, represents poor value for money and is kinda dumb.
