Love the colour combo - and it’s a board where I like the RGB. Not sure the side USB is a good idea - I’d prefer it on the back of the case.

Shouldn't this be called Mars 6.5? I'm not a fan of the usb port being located on the side, and the branding is a little too in your face, but I guess it was like this on the 8.0 as well.

I would definitely like a two tone 65, there are some cool ideas here, but I would get sick of the big ass "MARS" logo

I love the two tone. One suggestion - can you have the logo to the side instead of the middle?  Like

|—————-MARS-|

instead of

|———MARS—-—-|

That's how the TKL was. Think they are trying to do something new especially with the arc, center fits the asthetic

Are you planning to only have different top and bottom colors or would the same top and bottom color also be an option? (Personally not a big fan of the 50/50)
