Hello, I recently bought a Ryzen 5 3600 CPU and noticed there are light marks that end at the corners on top of the cpu, it looks like a heatsink was placed on it. Is this normal? Is it part of the manufacturing and testing process? Or is it used and I should I exchange my cpu while I can? I purchased it online directly from Amazon.


They are very light and hard to see, so these were the best pictures I could get of them. This is my first time building a pc, so I would appreciate the peace of mind in knowing this.


Thank you!
