    UEFI Features

    MSI Z390 motherboards come with a rather unique UEFI that is divided up into six major menus.  Within those menus are specialized sections to control features like overclocking and onboard peripherals.  I have seen this menu before and over time have grown accustomed to where things are locatd.  If you are a new MSI user you may need to spend some time hunting around for the feature you are after and to help you each menu features a proper title and breadcrumb trail so you’ll always know where you are and how to get back.

    Below are some of the screens from the MSI Z390 ACE UEFI in no particular order.

    Oh I should mention that some of the screens also show the Game Boost set to 10, while others are at factory clocks or at 5.1Ghz (the overclock featured later in this review).  During this review I was able to run stable at Game Boost 10 with no problems.  More on that later

    As with all BIOS menus it is a good idea to root around and identify all of the settings you are looking for and discover what their dependencies might be. The UEFI defaults are near perfect so there is little reason to enter the UEFI except in a few select circumstances like setting boot order, enabling XMP or dialing in your Game Boost settings.
