I'm also like it, because i spend less time to find my things there as everything is logically categorized rather thematically aggregated. But MSI mouse support in bios kinda nice, useless but nice.

I was in the same spot as you, but I settled for Aorus Pro. It looks like they are very comparable in terms of OC capability, but Gigabyte offers much more I/O which I think is crucial and was my main point for the Aorus.

What RAM do you have it paired? Got a cheap GSkill D-die 3600 CL16 2X8Gb running at rated spec using DOCP. Same with my MSI A320M, which ran 3 different RAM kits using DOCP. Although i have a rather good experience with my Asus boards, none of them behave the same as these two brands. Fortunately, there is the DRAM Calculator.

The B550M Auros Pro i have came with BIOS F1. May have to keep it since it is running without issue.

By Built-in Benchmark Queen:
My 2.5 years old delidded 7980xe @ 4600mhz all core with 49ns memorylatency (4000c16 twekaed) is faster than 3950x max overclocked on water in every scenario. Pretty good for a ancient cpu
In gaming it has no chance vs my new 10900k @ 5400mhz and 4600c16 tweaked memory. ~35ns memorylatency.

I have decided to go with Aorus Pro - same as tomahawk but more USB ports. So far no complaints.
