Hey EVGA, I have found with 1.08 on my Z590FTW, that if I power off the PC properly (by holding shift before clicking shut down) I get this odd electronic noise coming from the motherboard around the display LED / power button...
https://youtu.be/9sahoU7NHRg
 
If I power off the PC without holding shift, then there is no weird electronic noise...
 
I have downgraded to 1.07 and the issue is resolved, re flash back to 1.08 and issue comes back...
 
I have verified switching to secondary BIOS that the issue is fixed, probably due to the fact that it is running 1.04.
 
This happens all on factory defaults
 
When the noise is present, if I switch off the psu / remove the cord, and plug back in, noise is gone but obviously comes back when the PC is powered off properly.
 
Such an odd and strange issue, any chance you can look into it?

Is there a BIOS anywhere for XP support on Z590 Dark?

1 thing i never liked about EVGA is the lack of BIOS updates.....And with RAM kits surpassing 4GHz at 32GB we need them, just bought a new kit and the Z590 DARK will not even boot. I asked for a replacement, i was send a new one and the same. Used it on a friend's ASUS Z590 and it works fine (that ASUS has a BIOS released in April i think).
Please try to support your products a bit more.
Thank you.

Just did, now my system will not even boot with my old OC settings in place (5.1GHz @ 1.37V). Went up to 1.42V, nothing.
 
If left standard it will boot but if i even try to raise my RAM from 4 to 4.2GHz it will halt (with that ASUS mobo went to 4.4GHz no issues) :(
