My System Specs

Default

If cleaned properly, there will be no effect on performance. All I see there is a bit of residue from glue or thermal paste, and a tiny spot where the nickel plating is missing. Considering the fact that the only important point of contact in the base is the center area anyway, none of that makes any difference whatsoever.
