    I doubt they are burn spots, if they were the CPU would not be working. Please post a picture of what you are referring too.

    They are not huge burn spots but they are not scraping off and they wont wipe off. It does not look like it did when i put it in it looked like brushed aluminum but now it has discoloration in 3 spots. It is a dual core processor

    Discoloration can occur. Without pictures there's little that can be said.

    Well the metal you see is a heat shield, if you had burn marks on it then the CPU would not work, its really that simple.
