Is that a brand new block, that you just peeled the sticker off of?

try getting some 2000 - 2500 grit automotive sandpaper and use the lapping process to clean it up, might work.

I hade the same problem. You can easily clean it.
1) Mix flour and vinegar
2) Apply on the CPU block
3) Wait for 10 minutes (maybe more)
4) Rinse with water

It will look like new :thumb:

I believe Ketchup may also work?

I don't think a RMA will do you much good. Copper oxidizes, it's fact.

Yeah ketchup works also, as does elbow grease or a dab of IC7.:whistle:

I have used the vinegar and salt years ago.

brasso works wonders. Then I clean off the residue with soap & water.

Pretty normal oxidization, use some ketchup. it will not affect performance one bit.....
