  1. Its fine. No problems.
  2. - this is the hot spot from the upper side of the PCB. What is this chip for and why it becomes warm faster than the other parts? (When i turn on the computer it becomes warmer than the other parts almost immediately). Should i be worried about that?
  3. No, you shouldn't be concerned about these little spots that seem hotter.
