2400XP chip

Hi peeps,
Not really related to Epox I know but,
Getting my upgarde in bits and bobs, already have my 8RDA+ and just purchased my 2400 xp chip, can somebody just clear something up for me please. On the core itself there is a small square printed on the corner. Its too neat to be a blemish, has anyone else found this? If so Do i need to wipe/clean it off before applying any thernal compound ??

Thanks

What does it say?
If it isn't etched on the core, I'd just wipe it off the core off with acetone or alcohol and apply thermal compound.

It's laser etched onto the core so stuff like acetone of whatever is not going to remove it. Just leave it alone. That's what I did.
