    Question Staining on GTX 1070 Strix PCB

    Hello

    I have a gtx 1070 Strix that I purchased around 1 year old so I decided to change my thermal paste on die. When opening the card for first time (tampering seals were still intact) I noticed some staining on the PCB. The staining was on both sides of the card and in areas where there were no thermal pads. I originally thought it was due to grease from thermal pads but the fact that backplate also has this staining seems to suggest otherwise. Is this a defect and is my card about to die? Is this something I should consider RMAing?

    There should be no water damage as nothing has been spilled on the card.
