    New 1700X with water discolouration and heavy on glue.

      So, part of my new build showed up today. RAM, Motherboard and heatsink are still en route...

       

      When I looked at the CPU through the little window I noticed what looked like a water stain. Thinking it was just on the plastic I opened it up, nope... it's on the IHS itself. Also there seems to be quite a bit of glue holding the IHS on. I am curious if the glue is normal and that the water stain is just from manufacturing... or something else. Anyone seen this before?

       

      Note: The fingerprints on the CPU in the picture are mine, I checked the pins as soon as I found that the discolouration was on the IHS. Aside from the discolouration it looked clean.
