here is a post by the thread started with some clearer shots of the problem area.....................................can you guys let me know if anyone else has this

 

cuz it seems as if THEY ALL (or at least most) have a "boo-boo." Don't quite know what it affects, but it sure looks like enough damage to do "something"

It would really depend on the material. If it's simply some flux left over from manufacturing that didn't get completely cleaned off the board, it's not going to cause a problem.

 

It the material is electrically conductive, there is a possibility that it could cause a problem.

You could take a multimeter and touch both probes to the scoring while the boards off. There should be a 'continuous' setting on your meter that should just beep whenever the probes are making contact with each other. The scoring might be too thin though to get a decent test.

Yes it's 8x 8x, but there is no reason to have the extra bandwidth yet as CPU's are stll bottlenecked well before the PCI-e bus.
