I'm currently using the Asus ROG Hero VIII with a 5600X and 2070 Super, but lately its been exhibiting some signs of the not booting glitch. I'm thinking of going to the new AsRock X570 TaiChi Razer edition for the 3 M.2 slots. Do you think this is good upgrade or should I consider something else.
Thanks.

Thanks I'm going to take it to work and put it through a deep clean, reseat, reapply all the thermal compounds, etc etc... I'll change out the CMOS as well. Thanks for the advice.

When i first setup my x570 rig last year with a 3900x i was having wierd issues sometimes no post unless i cleared cmos or flashed the bios what ended up fixing it for me was pulling cpu out and putting it back in not sure why but that fixed it and even now with my 5950x no issues.

Temps with a H100i 240 capellix are 47-51 idle and 66 - 76 under stress test. Are these sufficient or should I bump up the cooler to the 360 H150i elite capellix?

that max is fine for normal use, idle seems a little high. what speed/voltage is it sitting at? if you are going to have sustained loads that max it out, then maybe bump it up, as the 240 will heat soak quicker.

1.377 is the average voltage.
1,400 mhz speed
These are with Auto Over Clock On.
