I’ll be replacing my aging MSI X570 Gaming Pro Carbon soon. 
 

two options on my table:

1. ROG X570-E Strix

2. ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Hero

 

assuming money isn’t a problem, which one do you recommend?

Why those two options? Is there something you really want/like from Asus? What CPU do you have, do you plan to overclock, and how much? You have a budget?
My recommendation would be for a B550 Aorus master if I didn't have to pick between those two. if I had to, I'd go for the VIII Hero, but that should be a decent bit more. 

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.

1) Asus has better boards, and better warranty, according to my friends and research.

2) Going another brand for a change.

3) Better looking aesthetics.

Ryzen 3700X, and I don't OC. It may be for future stronger CPUs.

Ryzen 3700X, not overclocking at the moment, but soon will.

 

 

Okay, If you don't want to upgrade, I'd just recommend a B550-A pro or B550-pro vdh. 

As for the boards, uuhhh no. I wouldn't recommend judging most components based off of their brands. Both of the boards you listed are... fine, if not somewhat overpriced. Warranty is generally fine, nothing to get worked up about. If you *really* care about aesthetics, hey I can't stop you, but I 'd highly recommend the above listed boards, and In the case that you kill the board, you can purchase another one and still pay around the amount or less than one of those asus boards.
