    Broke caps off CPU under IHS


      Hello All,


      I unfortunatley broke 2 caps off my CPU when trying to do a delid. They are being used for my mac pro CPU upgrade. The CPU is a X5670. It happens to still work but I was wondeing if anyone could tell me what exactly those two caps are for. Im pretty much expecting the CPU to not work long but if it turns out that it can be used without them that would be great. I figured id give the mac pro cpu upgrade a shot since its not like im voiding any warrenties (2010 Mac Pro and CPU). They are obviously there for a reason but I was wondering for what specefic reason. In the future I plan on not delidding anymore CPUs lol. Any feedback would be apprieciated.
