This is on an Intel X38BT Extreme series motherboard:
There is something definitely growing on top of the one capacitor down near the video card and just to the right of the memory stick on the right. It is brown and crusty and reminds me of a barnacle.
The system and board happen to be running quite stable as it does run 24x7 with the occasional reboot for an update.
The situation was discovered when showing a client the internal workings of this particular system which just happens to be sitting on my desk.
An RMA request has been placed with Intel for a replacement which we should see tomorrow.
