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...
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?
