I think that's not problem. Usually there is no damaging parts on modern CPU's top side except under heat spreader.

Little golden contacts on topside of the PCB are not in electrical contact with anything anyway; as long as none are shorted together, I'd not worry about it....

That's what a normal 4790k looks like. I'm not seeing any significant difference in the images you've posted, or am I missing something in them?
