Default NAD C372 Leaking Capacitors???? Help Please!

Hi i was wondering if the forum users could quite possibly give me a hand. I love my NAD C372 amp, so when i opened her up for a routine cleanup i noticed this brown "liquid" surrounding some of the peripheral cap's adjacent to the main caps. I dont think ive noticed it before, but then again there is a quite large possibility that i have forgetten since my last cleanup in July. Anyhow, the amp still bangs hard, im wondering if i should be concerned about the caps. Check out the pictures!

Looks more like glue to stop movement to me. There is no sign of bulges on the cans

It's almost certainly the ubiquitous brown glue everybody uses. All is well, don't mess with it.
I may be barking up the wrong tree, but at least I'm barking!
