Only Intel knows what those caps do.... so test the CPU with everything you have. Prime 95 and Intel Burn Test do not fully test every feature on the CPU... not even close.

Clean the contacts which meet with the pins on the motherboard, that might restore its ability to do 4.6Ghz again. Some guy here had one with that problem but he didn't blast away his chip caps, he bladed of the IHS.

Maybe you didn't break the capacitor, just it's plastic cover, that may have variated the value of the capacitor, and that be stopping you to get a higher OC, fi you don't find any other problems, would be wise to protect what remains of the capacitor

There is no plastic... they are surface-mounted components.

They are probably redundant pathway caps, just like servers have redundant psu that only come into play during desperate times.
