Angry H100i GTX oil or leak?

See attached image. Should I be worried about this? Is it oil or liquid leaking? Its on both pipes but less visible on the top one. This is the second time this has happened with a closed loop Cooling product from corsair and quite frankly it's stressing me the hell out

I can't see anything except maybe a little residue on the right tube end. Generally, fan lubricant is viscous with a yellow to brown tint. The coolant from the radiator would appear to be more like standard water and may leave what appears to be "salt" stains where it evaporates. This is from the anti-corrosive elements in the solution.

I can't tell from the picture. However, if we are talking about the top of the right tube, it is unlikely to be fan lubricant in that position.

so what is the verdict here!?!?!?!
I just got in a h100i and mine has the exact same thing going on!
Called corsair, and the guy said the hoses should be dry... but after doing a little digging it appears there is a lot of this going around.

SHOULD I BE WORRIED!?!?!?!?!
