Default CoolerMaster Heatsinks Flaking

My four CoolerMaster TX3 heatsinks from http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...quad-quad.html seem to be flaking off chrome dust onto my motherboard.

Does anyone else have problems like this, and with what kind of heatsink.

My System Specs


I've used two TX3's and I've never run into that problem. I never thought they were chrome plated at all?
Maybe Aluminum Flakes?

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.
