Synthetic memory performance seems to be slightly better on the MSI motherboard than the ASUS equivalent, by around 3~5%.

We can’t assign this difference to an obvious UEFI setting since both boards applied the same XMP profile and both boards also Auto selected the same 3.1GHz cache ratio for the CPU when opting for the 3.5GHz all-core turbo.
