On Intel Silver 4110 CPUs, the condenser at the location of the image is often corrupted. 1. What is the function of a capacitor? 2. What are the symptoms when the capacitor is damaged?

Hello kjinw1,

 

Capacitors are used to reduce package electrical impedance and enable the system to maintain a near-constant voltage across all operating frequencies.

 

Among the symptoms of a bad capacitor can include: boot problems, blue screens, memory errors, especially ones that get more frequent with time, Spontaneous reboots, etc.

 

If this is a brand new processor, we do recommend contacting the place of purchase for warranty information.

 

Best regards,
