Upgrading an ASRock X370 Gaming K4

I have an ASRock X370 Gaming K4 motherboard, running a 3700x CPU, 16 GB of Corsair (Samsung B die) RAM at 3600 MT/s, RX 480 Gaming X video card, and two NVMe drives. I've been thinking about replacing that three year old motherboard, but, other than doing it for the fun of it, I'm not coming up with a good reason for doing so. The CPU boosts to 4,400 MHz on some of the cores under light load, and it boosts to 4,000 to 4,300 on all cores under full load, depending on the type of load. One of the NVMe drives is running at 2x2, rather than 4x3, but the throughput is still 900 MB/s, which, for a data drive, is plenty. The other NVMe drive is my OS/programs drive, and that one hits 3,500 MB/s on sequential tests.

I've been considering replacing the board with a B550 board, but logically, I see no reason to, other than for the fun of it. Am I overlooking something?
