Default New H100i GTX smells like fish

Title says it all. Got a new H100i GTX yesterday and when removing it from the plastic bags, noticed a slight rotten fish like smell. It's not that noticeable and only smell it when I put my nose up to the unit.

My concern is if this is a sign of a leak or other issue I should be weary of. I don't want to stick this unit in my computer if there is a problem.

Check for leaks around the barbs and any liquid inside the bag.

If there is nothing, the cooler should be fine for use.
