Yes, that is because I used the offset to clear the VRM fan assembly at the top.  As I recall, I tried the other orientation first, but the clearance was not good. 

Can you please find time to take picture of the gap between Noctua NH-D15S and X299 Dark VRM heatsink\coolers? Quality of the picture isn't important, but it may help me to understand gap of and possible option to install another cooler - Phanteks PH-TC14PE.
 
Here is scheme of Noctua NH-D15S:

At bottom right you may see that cooler is 150mm total, but distance to center isn't equal: one side is 67mm, another is 83mm. That's why it must be rotated? Longer side will be at top PCI-Express slot side, short one - at VRM side. Am i correct?
 
Another my question is - how much free space is left at VRM side? You may place phone camera near motherboard power button (parallel to RAM) and take picture of the gap.
 
Also, can i use top PCI-Express slot with a Riser (for vertical GPU mount for example)?

Is it fit o.k.? Not blocking anything? Which configuration do you use (1,2,3 Fans)?

Does Noctua NH-U12A fits ? It would be nice to see somewhere a list of compatible air coolers for this wonderful motherboard. What are the most powerful air coolers suitable for it so that the first PCi-E slot does not overlap and regular fans remain on the VRM?

i7 9800X, 16Gb DDR4 4000, EVGA x299 Dark

Can you please not buy the x299 dark if you're going to use an air cooler? That's a waste ffs.

I sort of agree on this. Buy a good AIO watercooler at least.

No, just no, custom loop, chiller, dice or LN2. This board isn't for normies, neither is X299.
