I haven't tested this myself, but I've read on here (from Markfw and others) about X570 (and EPYC?) boards that require dual 8-pin CPU power, and if you don't plug in BOTH of them, you have booting problems.
This little adapter from Athena Power may solve that issue. It converts between a 6-pin PCI-E power cable, to a 4+4 CPU power cable.
