While you may be right, most ROG boards say ROG somewhere or have the logo somewhere.

Too bad the B85 is not a good choice for gaming. It's from Intel's Business line, hence the "B". It's a cheap/budget chipset, that's why all the cheapest 1150 boards all use the B85 chipset. I doubt the cheapest Haswell chipset Intel offers will get the ROG branding.

A revision of a B85 mobo? I actuality don't want to see that happen, ROG is supposed to be for elite gamers, hence the name, and OCers, not budget gamers.

Any motherboard is fine for gaming B85 can also be overclocked via some trickery so if its cheap well its a darn good deal.

they had a non OCing board that was ROG during 775

Does H85 or Q87 exsist if not intel finslly did something smart. Either way this is basically for if you dont want to OC just like the Vanguard B85. Both would pair quite well with a Xeon E3-1230v3.

I think any chipset is as good as the next if you're purely after gaming performance, since the chipset doesn't affect performance.  Not everyone who games is also a computer enthusiast, so the features of a more expensive chipset wouldn't matter to them, which I think is the idea.  The computer enthusiasts can get the ROG boards which have everything, and the gamers who are not computer enthusiasts can get these boards, which retain some of the gaming oriented features like the SupremeFX audio, but ditches the OC capabilities to lower the price.  Then they won't have to pay the high ROG price, much of which pays for the advanced power delivery components which won't be on these boards.

This is likely to combat MSI's B85 gaming motherboard, and for some gamers that don't want to fuss with overclocking these boards often go well.

For as little as PC gamers overclock demographically, a lot of them sure seem to think Z87 is the board they need. Kind of funny, in a way, like how some people think they need a ridiculously strong power supply. Too bad manufacturers often try to limit the amounts of SATA ports and such in order to twist your arm into buying Z87 anyway.

The sata ports are more intel to kepp it cheaper.

Honestly, I'd probably still buy Z87. The feature list includes things I wouldn't use, but they also tend to have features that I actually want.

This is ROG branded in the BIOS. I've been looking for a feature rich B85 board and there aren't many of those around so I welcome this if it matches MSI's price point :)

The chipset is what lets the CPU talk to everything else in your system. I'd rather spend the extra $20 to get a Z87 board that will deliver better potential and actual performance, and provide overclocking without any "trickery". Overclocking is not a niche thing these days, quality boards come with a BIOS setup that is so user friendly that it's almost idiot proof. Overclocking also does not require any sort of extreme cooling either, well, at least for Intel CPUs. My A70 keeps my 2600K well below 65c.
