ASUS will replace misprinted Evangelion motherboard parts
Purely cosmetic part has misspelled logo on $700 motherboard.
The high-end motherboard, known as the ROG Maximus Z790 Hero EVA-02 Edition, draws inspiration from the anime series “Evangelion.” Recently launched, this motherboard is part of a EVA-02 series of PC components. The motherboard has recently gained attention due to an unintentional misprint in the logo that reads “Evangenlion” instead of “Evangelion.” Despite being just a single letter, ASUS acknowledges that this error on a $700/€800 motherboard is significant enough to warrant replacement, likely at no additional cost to the users.
ASUS has officially stated that users who find the typo on their motherboards unacceptable can reach out to ASUS support for guidance on the replacement process. Notably, there is no indication of a dedicated service to handle these replacements on behalf of users. So users will be asked to disassemble their motherboards themselves.

The fact that no one at ASUS has noticed this mistake even though users have reported it since September tells us that ASUS was hoping it would never make the news. Unfortunately for them, it did.
