Suggestions on a New Motherboard

Hello,
I feel like upgrading my mobo just because. I reached a point in my life were I can basically afford whatever I want but have also gained a sense of practicality when it comes to spec'ing out gaming rigs. This is my current setup:

Intel Core i7-8700

ASRock H370M Pro4

CORSAIR Vengeance LED 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 2666

2x PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX Vega 56

CORSAIR RMX Series, RM850x

SAMSUNG 970 PRO M.2 2280 512GB

SAMSUNG 1TB SSD (storage)

I don't overclock, if that matters, but can you folks suggest a couple of Micro-ATX boards that would be good replacements for the ASRock H370M Pro4?
My priorities are Stability and good looks, lol, when it comes to motherboards.

Thank you all!

Psssh Yea, i own two copies of Sunny Day Real Estate's album Diary, ones a re-mastered version!

you "gained a sense of practicality" but are upgrading a motherboard for no reason?

what feature is your current motherboard not providing that a new one would? you have a locked SKU and DDR4-2666, a Z390 would do nothing for you.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)

Whatever B365/H370 board that has the ports you need and you like the looks of?

The ASRock B365M Pro4/phantom Gaming 4, ASUS TUF B365M-Plus Gaming and Gigabyte B365 M Aorus elite are all pretty decent looking and have m.2 slots that aren't trapped under your Vega 56's.

those are the cheapest ones in my region, but you might have better choices wherever you are, doesn't really matter.
