I ask because I want to get it for an old PC upgrade, but I can't tell if that's thermal paste residue or if the missing print or small dots are damage instead.

They says it's tested working and offer a return policy, just wondering if any of this is an indicator of future trouble. Google has no results.

Just looks poorly cleaned if it heat damage it would have scorch marks.

Buy an old MOBO and try it.

I have a working system, just wanted to get this CPU as an upgrade. Also yeah, I see no scorch marks, so that's a good sign. lol

Anything golden will just increase the cost.
