I just received a brand new TR 3960X and wanted to install it when I realized a strange reddish/brownish spot on the backside
It is very clearly visible in real.


I hesitate to install the CPU as it is going into a complete custom loop and it would be an extreme hassle to have to remove it again.


Should this be directly RMAed or tried to install?


Edit: If the picture is made smaller you can see the spot more clearly
