M.2 slot covers...

I have an X570 Xtreme on backorder!

Question on the M.2 slots for those who already have this board. Are the M.2 slot covers just decorative, or are they functional heat sinks?

Are you supposed to put them back in place after installing the M.2 SSD drive or do you leave them off?

Do they make contact with the SSD? What do you do if the SSD already has an attached heat sink? Do you have to remove it, or do you leave the cover off?

They are indeed are a functioning heat sink they even have the thermal pads covered by a thin layer of plastic behind the metal plate to prevent the stickiness from accumulating dust till you apply the m.2 in the slot. I installed mine in the second slot because it was a bigger chunk of metal for better heat dissipation. I did remove the thermal covering for the pcie 4.0 it would be a horrible asthetic look if you did keep the 1st slots metal plate off but i have a feeling it would be a better heat sink if you did because the bottom of the metal plates are not covering the m.2 only the top part. Choice is yours better heat sink vs aesthetic looks. I am though currently trying to figure out if me installing the m.2 in the second slot is the reason why the bios doesn't recognize the m.2. inconvenient timing on going to vacation the day i finally had all the pieces together to actually try and get it up and running. Windows installed fine but after the reboot the bios still didnt see he m.2. Someone already linked a nice video though in chinese on the possibility of using a boot drive bios update. I have alot of things I can try now when I return home.

Thanks for the info!

I'm considering getting one of the new aorus PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSDs. They come with an already-attached finned copper heatsink. (Maybe all PCIe 4.0 drives will ?)

It's not clear what the best way to install it on the x570 Xtreme would be...

It's ALIVE!

A little skinny yet, but will get filled up tomorrow.

EDIT: Now it's filled up with what it needed. Took a whole day and more.

I got it a week ago. No issues with 2700x but bios is very simple for the hi-end mobo, no PBO settings

Settings -> AMD CBS -> XFR -> PBO -> enable/advanced mode.

I don’t have XFR and PBO in AMD CBS menu. I have only Pstates/Throttling, IBS, Prefetcher, Memory interleaving, and DRAM controller configuration. Bios version is F3e.

Probably only works on Ryzen 3000 sku:s then I guess.

Moreover here is no Ryzen power plan available in 1903 Windows 10 after installation of fresh AMD X570 chipset drivers.
