4790k delid missing capacitor

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,
Just wanted to briefly let you know how it all happened. I've delidded my cpu and was using it fine for about 10 months now. Then one day im on my pc and it shuts off for no reason. When i try to boot it, it wont and mobo says error 55. So of course i go ahead and play with my memory for idk how long. Then ive read on forums that reseating the cpu might fix it. When i pulled out my cpu i saw this



When you look at it on bottom one of the capacitors is missing.

So basically im in a very very deep hole now. Thinking back i dont think i did any damage to it when i delidded cause ive done it before and i was extra careful. I also checked the whole cpu before putting it back into socket. Now that i see it idk what to do. I do have some skills soldering but id need to find the exact capacitors intel uses on the cpu.

What would you guys recommend i do with it? Anyone knows what capacitors i could use? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Gonna bump this thread, since I don't know much on this sort of situation.

I would check the pins with a picture with your cellphone and then magnify, sounds like a bent pin or hair in the pins. Sounds like that part that came off has been missing a while on your chip, and might not be the issue

Thanks for the reply. Im in the process of RMAing the motherboard. There actually was a one broken pin that needed to be fixed. However, now that ive seen this im not completely sure that it will work 100% without giving me an issue? Whats the worst that can happen when i use the CPU again? I just dont want to have any other pc component broken.

Worst that can happen? CPU doesn't work basically or the motherboard you got back from RMA is another faulty one. Or even both faulty.

This happened to an 8800 GT of mine. Actually in 3 places. It would not start. So what I did was take a conductive ink pen and draw a line between the two contact points in each location and the card actually ran. These are resistors, not capacitors. Their job is to limit current going through the two contact points. I bet your CPU will work if you do this. Though no telling what could happen in the future. I wouldn't overclock/overvolt it under such scenario.

FYI, mine has been working just fine. I pulled the lid off to re apply tim and noticed the same thing you did. I suspect it came this way. Not sure. I'm missing the exact same one. How's your chip running?
