    I'm not sure if this is normal through manufacturing but I noticed the brand new GTX 650Ti I bought has some small dents and scratches on the heatsink fins. Is this normal? First time I have seen this.

    I must be blind cuz i can't see anything in thoes pics as to what you are saying

    EDIT: LOL NVM i see them now i'm not exactly sure but it might be normal sometimes you will get the occasional HS that will have slight dents or small bends in the fins i have had it a few times on some CPU HS's i have boughten brand new they where so small it really wasent even noticeable and diden't effect the colling so i just left it as is

    Nothing to worry about. Just cosmetic scratching.

    Change this post into like an Easter egg hunt. Title should be....FIND THE 6 SCRATCHES/DENTS IN THIS PICTURE! (Because god knows I didn't see them either til you circled them all out)
