So I put everything back in and all was good up until 3 days ago when it did it again. This time, all I did was remove my graphics card and removed the battery. It has happened 3 times since February, almost a month apart. Do you think disabling the second BIOS might fix this? I am willing to try anything at this point.
you aren't really disabling 2nd bios by setting the dip switch you are just choosing to manually select which bios you boot from rather than letting GB decide which is the default behavior. And it will have no effect on your issue. You can try to replace cmos battery with a new one. It has worked for a couple people here. No known cause as what is causing the cmos battery to drain so fast or if that is the cause of "seemingly dead board" or a side effect of it.
One other user with the stock wraith cooler with the aRGB lights had an issue where the CMOS battery was being drained when pc was shut down. Turned out in his case that the aRGB leds were sucking down juice when pc was shut off. He resolved his issue by connecting the led cable the comes with cooler to argb header ( was unused in his scenario) in order to use the RGB Fusion software to disable the cooler leds. This most likely isn't your issue but was just a thought. You can enable ERP in bios which is a power savings feature that will ensure usb ports/ leds/ etc are powered off when PC is shut down to see if this will help with your issue.
There are a few users in this thread that have had similar issues like you only they were never able to get the board to power back on. People who have really early production numbers seem to be more likely to have the dead board issue but it's not guaranteed and there isn't any know cause or diagnosis of what component on the board actually failed. Hopefully, your more frequent occurrence of the issue isn't a precursor to permanent board failure
