    Hey all.

    I'm looking at finally switching from Intel (9700k) to AMD, and was looking at the ASUS Dark Hero board.
    I see that it referenced as Dark Anus on here.

    Is it not good? Or just a funny nickname for it?

    All of the above. I have the CPU and memory picked out, just after a decent motherboard.

    hahahaha it's a silly nick name I made up for it. It's currently the best X570 board you can get.

    Yeah, I always try and pick mid-high end boards. Not my first rodeo ;) Just wasn't sure with the funky nickname people were giving it.

    I did have a feeling that was the case, just thought I'd double check before laying out the cash haha.

    We also like to call the other manufacturers names like Gigashat and AssRock. MSI boards need no nickname, they are just garbage. :lol:

    Is Dark Anus. Is good :D
    (it's good, get one)


    I had an AssRock once. I had to take some tablets and sit in a warm bath for a while, and that sorted it out :D

    Lisa Su approves.

    Thank you for cutting the disgusting scene where obi-wan intelbi takes the win. This scene is heresy and false.

    Thank you Brother for your faithful support. The nvidia deep fakes plumb new depths of indecency with their pathetic attempts of rewriting history and is a moral stain on society.

    Under Lisa Su's eyes.

    There must be some serious money in late fees for some of the deals these bnpl schemes are offering to get people signing up.

    I've just seen they perform credit checks when purchasing with them too, double nope from me. Cracking deal otherwise though, can't remember any other time where you could get 25% off components.

    It's all the VC money being spent to try sign up customers in Australia, been lagging behind other BNPL providers. enjoy it while you can.
