I noticed that when the chipset fan is installed in BIOS in the User curve mode, it does not work correctly.
When you turn on the PC, the speed goes to the maximum, and then after a while it decreases. At the same time, the temperature of the chipset is, of course, small.
I had to put in a constant speed mode at 20%.
This is quite enough to provide a temperature of up to 60 degrees under stress load.
So it was on the BIOS version 1.17 and at 1.18 also remained.

Yep noticed the same thing and also it will ramp up to 100% and then slowly come down after waking the pc from sleep, since the fan control is so poor on the pch i have replaced the thermal interface under the heatsink and set the fan to 8%. The pch/chipset never goes above 45-50c however I honestly wish the x299 dark had a normal heatsink on the chipset and no shrouds on the ssds like the z390 dark.

Is it possible to just remove all that plastic crap on the X299 Dark?

Do you mean the M.2 Cooler Cover?

If not using any M.2 Drives I see why not but what about the fan?

Well does that fan really accomplish anything? Even if you do have M2 devices, can’t you just put sinks on them?

i have no plastic covers on one of my x299 darks, simply because i have 2 ek m2 ssd heatsinks that do not fit underneath the covers and i haven't had time to machine them down. Using the fan and thermal pads included the temp of the controller still spikes up and down far more than it does with a heatsink, clearly they recognized the plastic chipset and ssd covers were a hindrance as they removed them from the z390 dark and even at 100% fan speed after making 2 90degree bends and passing over the m2 ssds and then out the tiny rear i/o cover the fan is not really doing anything to cool the rear vrm heatsink so the whole thing is flawed, shame because underneath the covers the dark is gorgeous to look at.

Here it is. And I thought they were useful.
It will be necessary to try to remove the speed of rotation to zero and see how the temperature of the M.2 disk and the chipset will change.
I have a M.2 disc, but did not notice that it is heated very much. Normal temperature is 30-35 degrees. True, he backup drive.
 
The Z390 also has an air duct. But there he closes the VRM. Other construction, other powers.

Set at 5%, the temperature has not changed - in the stress test 42 degrees.

So I could remove all that plastic and everything would run fine? Does that also mean I can remove that fan too?

I am asking for purely aesthetic reasons. The X299 Dark is an amazing board. The plastic just cheapens the look imho.

Ths plastic cover are air guide the pch fan blows air throgh the channel which cools the m. 2 and vrm Hart pipe so it's not crap

i have found 8% to be the lowest i can go. Any lower than 500rpm and you can hear a clicking type noise from the coil/bearing(unsure)  but i find below about 500rpm the fan is unhappy.
