    There are marks on my new Intel processor. Manufacturing signs or simply used?


      Today I got my brand new i7 4930 processor.

      After unpacking the box, I found some rectangular scratches (or smudges) on the top cover of my "brand new" i7 processor.

      Is this normal?

      Are those smudges signs of Intel's manufacturing process or did someone sold me a used processor for new (where this processor already had a cooling block installed on top of it)?


      Thanks for your thoughts!
