Hello, I recently broke off a part of the backside of my Intel E7500 & was told it was a resistor (or capacitor?), and can be replaced back to full functionality if done correctly.
In the image below the broken resistor is circled in red:
I was directed to mousers.com as a resource for resistors of these size. If anyone could identify this piece, let me know!
Unfortunately those part can not be replace, I recommend to replace the whole processor and the fan heatsink, for more assistance you can contact your Intel(R) technical support center :
