If you purchased the CPU new, contact Intel with the pictures as they would give you a straight answer. From the looks of it, it looks like the solder between the chip and the heat spreader got squished, kind of like peanut butter when you put two pieces of bread together.

It's just milling marks from when the IHS was machined. Honestly, you're fine. Just order the motherboard, pop it in, and you're off to the races.

What he said

where the flaws are effects absolutely nothing, its like calling apple cuz your iphone 5 has scratches on the side, sure it would be nice if it didnt but once you put a case on no one will ever know and in this case once the heatsink is on you with never notice.

Obviously they having bad batch, where the soldering machine that adding the heatspreader is not working as it should. It is just a minor detail, you can run with it hapilly. Maybe even it allow you to remove the heatspreader more easily :)

/where are the times of P3 and P4, where all what was need is a sharp scalpel and patience when working it's way around the chip?

That is still all that's really required...well, a razor blade, but still...same idea.
