I just knocked off the motherboard (MSI Platinum SLI x58) solid capacitor and I don't know what to do. Apparently its a 16v470uF variant solid cap but I don't know anything about capacitors so I hope that helps

Thank you in advance

Ah, I tried to put it back on but snapped one of the legs from the mobo connecting the cap instead. The cap does not have legs but the mobo does for some reason. Also, some guy on the Imgur said "Its almost certainly a multi-layer board - resoldering needs to be done carefully by someone who knows what they are doing" so I think I'm going to bring this to a local PC repair shop.
