hey guys,

I've just received a new Asus z77-v pro motherboard and I found something weird for which I was curious about and decided to ask here. I can feel a light smell coming out under the chipset cover, but I can't really tell if its burnt smell or from the paint, it is not strong but its noticeable and since its my first build I'm worried about it. Anyway I want to ask if its normal for the new pc components to have this sort of smell. Moreover I don't have the CPU here yet so I can't test anything. answers are appreciated

It will probably stop after a few days, I imagine it is new smell until everything is settled.
