broken off capacitor

need help with a broken off capacitor i bought an asus p8 z68 deluxe mobo and a capacitor fell off and they dont accept returning the item so i have to fix it,the one that broke off is the bent one i tried to put it back on just not to lose it,
the capacitor fell of i just put it on the wires i havent turned it on,so i need help with the capacitor itself how to find another one i searched around and could't find a same one so i need some help.Thank you so much!

  1. Putting it back on those wire stubs is worse than it not being there at all, don't apply power to MB while it's there. Check numbers on it and you can get any capacitor of same capacitance with voltage and temperature higher than it.

  3. If it's proper part and everything works than you can do anything you normally would.

    so if i got it correctly it doesnt have to be exacly the same capacitor that broke off it can be similar to it and has to have same voltage and that stuff ??

  5. Capacitance should stay same, Voltage and "other stuff" can be somewhat higher. That "other stuff" is mostly just temperature rating.
