There does not appear to be a place to turn off the Wi-Fi Module in BIOS, so (as Gigabyte stated) you'll have to disable it in the OS.  If that is not satisfactory, buy a board without Wi-Fi.

Since all electronics emit some level of EMF, and the world is built around this technology I'm not sure you can live anywhere except for on a desert island where you won't be subjected to EMF.  Better ditch your cell phone too.

The symptoms, fatigue and pain you describe sounds like too much gaming without frequent rest periods or breaks.

You are correct about the desert island, but it is possible to avoid the worst. I use a microwave meter, and only turn the phone on for calls using an 'air tube' headset. I also think that as the dangers become apparent, the power levels will have to be drastically reduced.

The symptom was a searing pain which started in the teeth/sinus, and spread to the back of the eye, meaning sleep was difficult. I even got a healthy tooth removed, thinking it might be the problem. That was nearly a decade ago, and since then nothing (the pain stopped on the very night, after the mouse broke) - even though I use the computer in the same way.

As stated, I never noticed anything whilst using the device, so I would urge anyone with unexplained pain to check they are not continuously close to a high-power transmitter, such as a high-powered mouse, or router etc. etc.

Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with Windows.
The network card is absent from BIOS also when it happens.

That's a defect on a hardware level.  I would have returned the board at the get go.  I've been there before.  You hang on to it being hopefully optimistic (it will get fixed) but it never does.  Sorry.  Disappointing to spent your hard earned cash on something this problematic.

Sorry to hear about your problem. But the thing is if you are having problems with the microwave transmitters. Why would you buy a board WiFi the first place? Yes I know that the board supports water cooling.

Plus even if you disabled it in the device manager it might still be on. I think you only disabled the driver and the device. Plus if you decide to return it and get another board. If there was a seal on the box they might hit you with a 15% restocking fee too.

If you go with another board. Download the manual to see if you can disabled it in the bios first. More likely you can't.

Hey,
Very sorry.  You've been at this a year and no real solution.  Its unfortunate driver support has been so poor. 

Have you tried making a back up of your existing install and reinstalling a fresh copy of 1909 or 2004 from scratch?

Hello,

I recently received the Z490 Aorus Waterforce - it looks pretty amazing, though it was the inbuilt monoblock that caused me to switch from Asus (last 4 boards) to Gigabyte.

Thing is, I absolutely need to be able to totally switch off the wifi unit - so I wrote to Gigabyte support. They wrote back:

There is no customised BIOS. To turn the wifi off, disable in Device Manager and remove the antennae.

The above reply is from memory - strangely the answer is no longer visible. I had written an answer to them and they replied again - the first answer though, has disappeared?!?

The reason I will not have microwave transmitters in the house, is that I had 3 years of hell due to using a gaming mouse, close to my face. The (severe) sinus/eye pain did not come while using the device, rather in bed at night. I might never have found out about it, except luckily the mouse broke.

I do not really believe that disabling the device in Device Manager, will turn off power to the unit - I hope I am wrong. Certainly their answer does not fill me with confidence - if turning off in Device Manager works, why did they write that the antenna should be removed???  One possibility was mentioned in another thread - it referred to the Z390 Aorus, and they said the wifi card can be removed from the housing. I have not unpacked the motherboard, and have only looked at it through the plastic cover - it seems the wifi unit is enclosed in a shroud, so I'm not sure this is possible.

I am now leaning towards returning the board, and maybe regretting looking at other than Asus in the first place. Though I really hope someone can put my mind at rest about this - then I can keep the board :)

Thanks,

Motherboards with AMD processors / Re: X570 Aorus Master F30 BIOS kills USB

I've no what you may label as aggressive settings in place. The same settings have been in place and have been generally rock solid through quite a few BIOS versions so I've no reason to believe the issue is down to anything other than F30.

I re-upgraded to F30 again yesterday and the exact same USB issues instantly returned. Nothing I found in the BIOS configuration resulted in fixing the failed USB port. I'm back to F22 and all is good.

The only other issue I've experienced pre-F30 is BIOS settings being lost after power loss.

Greetings,
This might not be the F30 BIOS entirely, as it might be the BIOS or settings in conjunction with your specific hardware.  Example: Fast and Ultra Fast Boot (if enabled, try disabling this)

Over time, we have seen similar issues where only the USB 2 ports work during POST or in a preboot environment.  Preboot behavior can also be affected by your OS.

Chipset+USB 2.0 Hub:
8 x USB 2.0/1.1 ports (4 ports on the back panel, 4 ports available through the internal USB headers) 

Using adapters, etc. can also cause strange behavior.  Not saying these apply in your case, but recommend they be ruled out if having F30 is that important.

A review of CPU support shows everything currently available being supported with BIOS F20 and <.   F22 improves memory compatibility.  If you aren't having issues, you don't need it. 

F30 potentially improves latencies between CPU cores.  3% ~ 14% depending on which CPU you own...  this timing is measured in nano-seconds.  Keep in mind it's "potentially" not "it will".  So in a best case scenario you might see up to 9.0 nano-second improvement.  Do you think you will actually be able to perceive this? (Even if there was this level of performance increase).  Then F3x comes out and it all starts again.   

Using overly aggressive BIOS settings can also introduce weirdness.  So you'll need to do more testing if you want to confirm an issue, and state with any level of certainty that a problem with F30 might exist.

Motherboards with AMD processors / X570 Aorus Master F30 BIOS kills USB
« Last post by Bonzo on September 22, 2020, 06:14:22 pm »
After updating my X570 Aorus Master BIOS from F22 to F30 I noticed that the keyboard and mouse were dead. Other USB devices were also not working. The issue only affected certain USB ports so I was able to plug the mouse\keyboard into a working set of ports to see if any BIOS settings were to blame.

After various checks I've had to restore my old F22 BIOS - all is now fine.

So, a warning, F30 looks like it has serious issues.

Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: Z490 GAMING X: unable to see POST/enter BIOS

The thing how do you have boot set. If it is set to boot fast or ultra fast. The is why it does see the display port. The other thing is how is how the CSM is set too? You are using a older video card on a new mother board.

I have had about the same problem using the older cards on the Z490 boards. Put in a card that has DDR6 and all the problems go away.

Quote
CSM SupportEnables or disables UEFI CSM (Compatibility Support Module) to support a legacy PC boot process.

Enabled Enables UEFI CSM.

Disabled - Disables UEFI CSM and supports UEFI BIOS boot process only. (Default)

Try and change this to Enable and see what happens.
