Question Brand new I7-10700K just came in the mail. Appears to have scratches/blemishes around the edges. Will this be a problem???

Just as title says. There are some blemishes or scratches in the CPU plate. I've tried seeing they come off with a little alcohol, but they do not.

What do you think? Should I request a return? Or are these going to be superficial imperfections?
It’s probably fine but if I just spent hundreds on a brand new CPU and it came like that I’d be very irritated. Personally if it wasn’t too much of a hassle I’d get a new one/refund

Thanks, I appreciate your input. It is pretty aggravating. I bought from Newegg, and I'm not sure how easy they are to deal with returns.
