Default Re: Asus X99 Over heating Capacitor

The ic's are stepdown buck converters, likley 12v input and 1.8v output, you could check the voltages, there could be a shorted mlcc on the output loading down the whole circuit. There looks like an identical circuit supplying the other bank of ram, Try comparing resitance or voltage between the two circuits
It could be that cap on the ouput is bad (560f/6.3v)
I see some boards use a IR3553 for the buck converters
