I placed it inside the socket with the heat sink once and because I had to RMA the mainboard removed the CPU again. I didn't look before, but the side (all around) of the heat spreader are rough and seem damaged.
Post a picture.
yep, post a picture like zion said if you want the community to give you a useful response.
As soon as I am back home I will take a picture.
I found the same appearance in various online resources, for example this Ryzen CPU looks worn as well at the edge: http://xtremesystems.org/fugger/ryzen/g4.jpg
This may already answer my question, but I'd like to know if all Ryzen CPUs have this rough edge.
I currently have no camera which is able to take a picture clear enough of the small scale to show the problem...you may take the image of my answer before as a reference.
I try to take a picture with another camera.
Retrieving data ...
