Looks like Biostar ripped off the new Asus design almost exactly. The shame! Where is the classic Biostar blue?

Is it just me or does it look like an MSI board and Asus board did the fusion dance and this is what happened?

Reminds me of the color scheme of a Z97-A from Asus and the Heatsinks of the MSI Gaming board.
