Lag issues Gaming 7 X299

Anybody have the Gaming 7 X299? And the 7800X cpu by chance? 

I’ve got quite a mystery to solve. 

A few months ago I started noticing video lag in my editing software. Checked for Windows updates - which usually solves it. It didn’t. Then I started noticing lag everywhere else. I mean everywhere. I’d try to restart it and it wouldn’t come on. Lights and fans would come on but that’s it. Sometimes the whole system would be on but nothing would come on the screen. MB shows all sorts of weird codes. 

But then sometimes, it would work fine. But not for long.

1. I dusted the entire PC. 

2. I tested the RAM and CPU with Windows (RAM) and Intel CPU test. Both were fine. 

3. I swapped out the GPU for another. Same issue. 

4. I installed a sample version of Windows on a clean drive with nothing else. Same issue.

5. I noticed it was running really hot and seemed to act up the hotter it got. Replaced the case fans and upgraded from a 120mm to a 360mm liquid cooler. Now the machine is ice cold. And it’s been running great, until today. 

The lag came back. Not as bad, but it’s there. 

I’ve had this build for a year and half and only now have these issues. What on Earth could this be?????

My setup:

Intel 7800X 6 core 
Gaming 7 X299
Ballistix Sport LT 2666 64GB DDR4 ram
MSI Gaming GTX 1060 6GB GPU
HP 500gb SSD X 2
HP 120gb SSD X 1
Rosewill 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold

I'm interested in which codes. That is your go to diagnostic list.

Please, which of these are you getting?
