Add me to the List for the Z590FTW
I powered up the system for the 1st time on 8/01/2021. 
LED issue began in December, but no performance issues.
I also have receive the BIOS Warning Message randomly since my build in regards to that CPU, SATA mode or M.2 Settings have changed.

Last first:  Regards to that boot up message, " .........CPU, SATA mode or M.2 Settings have changed" and others noted BIOS changes.  Had same issue on Z490 and this Z590, it has come up in other forums before .... with no conclusion (none I have seen) ... however, in my case, nothing has ever 'apparently' changed as noted in the warning message... and now I just disregard.. and to date nothing appears to have EVER changed (last time was yesterday).
Regards to LED issue.  Five (5) weeks and no further response beyond ".. looking into it..." from EVGA.  I still think the LED issue is not a failed LED, but whatever is driving or transmitting the signal to it's display function.  Unless I have missed it... the keepers of the forum have not stepped in on behalf of the 30+  z590 LED complaints.

Nope. I had emailed Jacob at one point and he said he was looking into it. but no, I haven't seen any official comment from EVGA about the issue or whether or not they've fixed it on current/future builds.

I do agree as watching the LED during boot, segments light up bright and go dim or off. Its appears to be the LED driver to me.

That is possible, but I had noticed that the bad segments never turn on, and when the display is trying to turn them on, all others go dim. If the bad segment is not one of the ones intended to light up, the remaining segments are full brightness. This lines up with a shorted LED segment, which would put too much current on that channel and bog down available current for the rest of the segments. If the driver has a max current that it can't overcome and all of the current is going to a shorted LED, that would also explain what we've seen here.
 
In any case, it is definitely a hardware failure. I'd love to hear EVGA come out with a statement to indicate what kind or at least that they've fixed it on boards made after XX date. Clearly it isn't failing on every single board that was made and as there's no safety issue or even performance issue, I don't think that would generate any kind of recall. I'd just love to know before buying future boards that they actually figured it out.

FYI... As I wrote 12/22/21 in my case the following is happen less often:
" ..... Noticed in last few days that the FAILED indicator does come on about once a day and
fully function for only a few minutes to a half hour (including the dark leg) ..."

@chasreno, that's Interesting. I missed that. Mine did not have that behavior.
