Anybody ever have the actual POST LED Indicator (seven segment displays) fail? I've never seen this on a motherboard before, but mine seem to be failing. Hard to imagine this being anything but a hardware failure, so I've contacted support, but I thought I'd ask as some of you have been doing this a lot longer than me.
First, the central segment/bar on the left digit failed. It won't light up, and whenever the left digit tries to show anything that would normally light it up, all the other bars/segments are very dim. (a 0, 1, or 7 for example still light up normally)
Second, the lower right segment on the right digit has failed. A "2
" or "F" still light up fine, but the rest are dim because they require the lower right bar/segment.
Honestly, when the first one went out, I was in no way looking to RMA a motherboard for that as my build is super tight and I was in no hurry to take this apart...should have been years. Now that a second one has gone out, I'm worried the whole thing will just keep failing and then I'll have no idea what POST codes are happening.
I'll let folks know what happens with support. At first it was a small "oof", but we've just cranked the dial up to medium. I can't imagine someone there'll be happy to know they had to RMA a $429 motherboard for a ~$1.00 7-segment display.

Edit 2: At this point, I'd like to add a running tally. Current number of 7-segment display LED POST indicator failures from forum members who've replied in this thread or x570/z490 threads:54
