Yeah, looks like flux to me.

If there are any bumps or raised pieces in the PCB substrate, it could possibly be slight delamination. Cant really tell from the pic though.

Looks like the varnish that they put on the Board is discolored from something that leaked on it.. It should not cause you any problems.. It could be from heat too but the mark looks like a liquid was spilled on it...

on a brand new card? I got this factory wrap. I wonder its from the foam in the box.Maybe the box got hot from the weather while it was in transit.

I've had similar looking stuff on a few different new components before, each time it was a greasy substance :l I never worried about it though.

Is it greasy or? :l

Its not greasy. It looks like a sticker was there but its not sticky. I'm not freaking out. I'm just concern if I have to rma this card if they will refuse it. The card works perfectly fine.

HAHAHAHAHA........That what I thought that he was referring to also.

It looks like flux to me too. We got those kinds of marks on PCB's at work when the flux wasn't cleaned off very well. Nothing to worry about. If it bothers you, try cleaning with alcohol and swabs but be careful around the surface mounted devices.
