I'm not certain although I imagine this should apply to P67 as well, but speaking from the Z68 side, Asus's UEFI has more configurable settings for overclocking. Their UEFI has greater range than MSI's in some overclocking settings like Vdroop/LLC and Asus can overclock by offset voltage whereas MSI can't. I have a feeling that MSI using AMI as their BIOS vendor has something to do with the limited configuration options. The rest is just Asus doing what they do. MSI boards aren't crippled, but their overclocking settings are not as granular as what you can do with an Asus board.

That said, I got an MSI and I'm pleased with it because I didn't want to spend an extra $70 to have a PS/2 port on a Z68 motherboard that was among the options available at Micro Center.
