Interesting question.... on my motherboard the ram pin where highly corroded... that's one of the reason why I removed them and installed socket of good quality... I guess that for some time I stopped the corrosion... strangely the 40 pin chips have their pin in a relatively good quality when I see the strange color of the board I guess that some part were expose to light (the varnish turned almost brownish) and some other part it kept the same color as the original... there were a lot of rust on the shield around the clock...
