That is a tiny capacitor that sits on your motherboard with a very thin glue. You practically need a microscope to move one, and there are hundreds of them on each board. So which one is it? Maybe you can just scrape it off.
Buy there is another problem: OEM. That means an outside builder, Supermicro perhaps built your motherboard.
And, why tell this story 3 years later?
Buy in the subject of removing it, a capacitor reads a tiny stream of electricity and opens its hate at a determined voltage, correct? That sets off another capacitor and so on until what exactly happens?
